Thanks for purchasing the ‘Simon Kobler Drum Samples’ pack a collection of drum samples from Hillsong United's drummer Simon Kobler. These samples were recorded at the same recording studio Hillsong United and Hillsong Worship recorded their most recent albums and were meticulously mixed and mastered by one of Hillsong’s great mix/mastering engineers Philip Blackbourn.
This pack includes the following formats:
WAV – 48kHz/24bit
EXS24 – Presets for Logic 9 and above and MainStage 2 and above.
KONTAKT - Presets for Kontakt 5 and above.
TRIGGER – Presets for Slate Digital Trigger 2 and above.
ROLAND - Presets for TM-6PRO, TD-17, and TD-50.
Please note that you can load these samples into a Roland SPD-SX, all you will have to do is convert to 16bit/44.1kHz before uploading into your drum pad.
Below is a list of the drum kit hardware used for these sample recordings:
I hope you enjoy using these samples as much as we enjoyed making them!

Installing for Roland Sound Module
1. Insert an SD Card into the Roland sound module and use the format SD Card function in the module. (See the instrument manual for the process for your instrument)
2. Double click/Unzip the ‘Roland.zip’ file which will create a folder called ’Roland’ with subdirectories for each compatible instrument
3. Copy this entire ‘Roland’ folder to the SD Card
Single Kit Loading
Insert the SD Card into the Roland sound module and use the ‘1 KIT Load’ function of the module to import a kit patch with its associated samples into the user sample list in the Roland sound module. Repeat for each kit you want to import. There are 10.
Tip: Choose blank/user slots to load the kits into to retain your factory preset patches.
Due to memory limitations, it is not possible to load all 10 kits into the TD-17.
You may want to load 3 or 4, try them then when ready, save this module state using ‘Backup save’ then perform a factory reset ticking ‘with user samples’ so that the module is cleared and ready for the next kits. You can then save the next module state as ‘Backup2’ etc
Backup Loading (TM-6PRO & TD-50 only)
VERY IMPORTANT: This operation will erase all existing sound module patches and replace them with custom kits and samples so be sure to backup any existing user kits first. See the instrument manuals for the process.
Use the ‘backup load’ function in the module load all kits at once.
These will load into slots 80-90 in the TM-6PRO and slots 1-10 in the TD-50. For the TD-50, factory kits are simply relocated and can be user re-loaded at any time using the ‘Load 1kit’ from preset memory function. (see the TD-50 manual for details)
