Drum Tools 02 by Wave Alchemy is a Swiss Army knife of machine driven samples. The diversity of the included samples alone is quite staggering. Add high precision sample editing and immaculate organization to the mix and you get a very wise investment.

It’s taken Wave Alchemy long enough to make it, but the follow-up to Drum Tools 01 is every bit as essential as its predecessor. This monster collection amounts to 2029 (mostly) electronic drum samples: 450 kicks, 282 snares, 192 hats, 225 claps, 100 cymbals, 120 toms and 660 assorted percussion sounds, plus 1528 tape-processed alternatives for added warmth and grit.

It’s a staggeringly expansive library of individual and layered hits, and with 79 sampler patches in various formats, Wave Alchemy has even done the kit-building legwork for you 5/5.

There is no genre of electronic music, past or present, that could not be built upon a foundation set by Drum Tools 02. The team who worked on this library didn't try to capture a niche sound and give you a dedicated tool box. DT02 gives you a huge variety of sounds in each of the following categories: bass drums, claps, snares, toms, hi-hats, crashes, cymbals, electronic and acoustic percussion, and (my favourite) glitch and abstract. This alone nets you 2,029 samples, then throw in the 1,528 tape processed samples and you could fill a room with the samples and swim around in them.

There is hidden character inside these samples that can express itself to different listeners in different ways. This is that “machine soul” that lurks inside the samples, waiting to be gently coaxed into being. Every sample is a work of art and a deep listening will yield fine details etched into these sculptures.

Conclusion

Drum Tools 02 by Wave Alchemy is a Swiss Army knife of machine driven samples. The diversity of the included samples alone is quite staggering. Add high precision sample editing and immaculate organization of the library to the mix and you get a very wise investment. Listen to the samples, build some grooves with them and you will find the magic, a “machine’s soul” lurking inside these samples that will spark a passion in you. You will find that these drum samples are individual works of art.
