Our Verdict

If you're lacking disk space or money, then this is a drumkit collection you'll be interested in.


  • Wide range of samples. Good value. Small size.


  • Not the best sounding.

This is a SoundBlock that plays via Samplebase's own sample player, Satellite. It contains four multisampled drumkits, and the sounds are adequate.

However it serves as a reminder of just how far drum ROMplers have come on in recent years - it takes a lot of work to get things sounding realistic.

However, Vintage Drumkits costs a mere $39, so if you're fed up of filling your hard drive to the brim with multisampled libraries, then it could be a breath of fresh air.

However, if system resources aren't a concern, we reckon it's worth saving up for one of the new generation of drum ROMplers.
