Hello, I have just joined this forum and I was wanting to know where I can submit new drumkits. I have developed a multisampled hard rock/metal kit from royalty free samples in 44.1k and 96k but have no idea where to submit them. Please advise.

Hey!!

The first thing to do is to make you that you have all rights to distribute this kit. Have you recorded the samples on your own? Whats the license of your samples?

If those questions are solved, you can post it here or upload it somewhere so that we can put it on sourceforge (if it has a free license).
Please read the wiki article on drumkit packaging for more advice about licensing.

Yes, I have made sure that all of the samples I have used were either from other freely available Hydrogen drumkits, or from other freely available sources.

All of the Cymbals except the China come from http://www.geocities.com/duro7878/gs_drums.html which is available free of charge and does not appear to have any licensing restrictions

The China Cymbal came from http://downloads.sourceforge.net/hydrogen/deathmetal-drumkit.h2drumkit?modtime=1230469598&big_mirror=0

The Toms from http://www.ultimatemetal.com/forum/andy-sneap/266591-tama-starclassic-drumsamples.html were used, and do not appear to have any licensing restrictions

The Kick is http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=33645 (creative commons i believe).

The snare is http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=36252 (creative commons I believe).

Does anyone foresee any problems as long as I give credit to the authors in the drumkit description?

Thanks

The GSCW samples are not meant to be distributed. They're free to use, but not free to distribute. And i can't see any license informations related to the kit which is mentioned in this forum..

Could you provide me with the information about the GSCW kit that states no re-distribution? I looked, but did not see that information.

Thanks
