If you do not have any RAR extraction software to unzip the drum sample packs, please use one of the above. They are both FREE and will allow you to unpack all of the juicy drum samples to your hard drive. UnRarX is for the Mac & Frog Extractor is for the Windows platform.
We have had some installation issues with Audio Units and Logic. They do install and work perfectly, but there are a few instructions to follow to make this happen. You can download the instructions here.
I have created a FREE VST for you to do a trial install with. The 'Chaser PR80 Computer Drum VST' can be found on the 'Useful Downloads' page.
I apologise for the way Logic users need to install these VSTs, but until the developer makes it more straight forward, there is not much I can do.
As soon as the developer releases the update which ends this AU install issue, I will update all of the AU plugins.
Please try the FREE Chaser VST.
The sample packs that are available from Beat Machine are all in the universal WAV file format which is accepted by pretty much all software and hardware samplers. Some hardware samplers such as the Roland W30 and S series samplers will only accept their own format, so some converting will be required to get the drum sample packs to be compatible.
For loading the VST instruments, simply unzip your downloaded VST to your hard drive. Then copy the fonts from the fonts folder to your windows or mac fonts folder, then copy the entire VST instrument folder to your VST Plugins folder. For most it is C:\Program Files\Vstplugins. For Fruity users it will be something like C:\Program Files\Image-Line\FL Studio 12\Plugins\VST. You will need to refresh your plugins list afterwards in Fruity Loops. If you have any problems, just message us!
Most software samplers will take the drum samples & VSTs effortlessly. Such software samplers as...
Fruity Loops Studio 12
Native Instruments Kontakt
IK Multimedia Sampletank
