Simon Kobler Drum Samples from Peter James

Simon Kobler Drum Samples



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:

EXS24 – Presets for Logic 9 and above and MainStage 2 and above.

KONTAKT -   Presets for Kontakt 5 and above.

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.
