I'm trying to replicate a sound that I've been hearing in music for years, but am just not quiet sure where to start. It's this sort of melodic tom tom sound with heavy reverb that kind of sounds almost like musical notes. I am not sure if maybe there's a specific way to get it, but I thought I'd reach out to the folks here.

They simplest thing i thought of would be just to take a good tom sample, then load it in a sampler so that it would pitch up and down as i hit different keys on the keyboard. But it seems like there is more than the sound to this.

 

Tools I have that might come in handy:

EW Storm Drum 2

EW Quantum Spaces Reverb

BFD3

Logic pro 9

 

Just wondering if anyone's ever happened across a sample kit for something like this?

Not sure about the first clip, but in the Talking Heads clip and in the Pink Floyd clip those are roto toms.

 

If you don't have them on your drum kit, 8dio makes a pack for Kontakt with roto toms.
