Dark Side of the Tune has released some really good free drum kits recently, and Resistance Is Futile is said to be just as good, if not better, largely because of the fact that an analog Dual Borg Filter module was used this time round. Using this particular module to filter a collection of noise sources, and then shaping them high-quality percussive sound, and without question resulted in truly magnificent drum samples suitable for practically any genre.
Another great attribute of this collection is the fact that all the sound samples come in both 32-bit and in 16-bit variations, which is obviously great news if you are still the older 16-bit samplers. Users will also find a set of “round robin” variations for a collection of the one-shots (see those with lower-case labels) which can be very useful if you find yourself having to simulate an unstable out when using analog instruments.
