Every Drum Sample Pack we’ve ever created

A labour love spanning 10 years (and thousands of hours of sound design), Complete Drums is the culmination of Wave Alchemy’s life-long achievement in being the industry leader in drum sample sound design.

Complete Drums gives you every drum sample pack we’ve ever created. You’ll get access to characterful, beautifully curated analogue samples from almost every iconic and inspiring drum machine in existence. You’ll find unique and lovingly processed drum & percussive sounds from vintage / modern and modular synths. You’ll have access to thousands of creatively designed, forward-thinking layered drums, quirky percussion, acoustic drums, tape machine & vinyl processed drums, Foley and found percussion and much more…

Complete Drums delivers over 34,000 (yes, 34,000!) lovingly produced and organized drum samples… We’ve also created tons of drum kits, making use of all available sounds in the collection, totalling over 400 kits.
