"Really good and natural samples. Simple interface, incredibly fast tweaking in the mixer and routing sections! And snare is sounding great on blastbeats!!!"
- Stefano Morabito, Producer (Fleshgod Apocalypse, Decrepit Birth, Internal Suffering, Hour of Penance, Obscenity)

Unleash the raw, unpolished beauty of Classic Underground Hardcore Drum Sound

Riot Drums is a fully sampled drum kit that was inspired by classic 90’s Hardcore albums. We dug out some old cassette tapes & vinyls, rented a recording space and got a kick ass drum kit and sampled the whole thing for you.

We love 90’s Hardcore and we wanted to bring you a natural sounding yet punchy kit that delivers roundhouse kicks right to your jaw. This puts pizzamakers and Gorilla Stomps in your songs.

"In your face!" The RIOT Drums kit is definitely not just another drum VST. If you are searching for a really realistic sounding and punchy drum plugin, don't look any further. The sound of the RIOT Drums plugin is natural, raw and authentic. With its straightforward routing and mixing flexibility it's my go-to drum VST for quick sketches and final products. You really can't go wrong with the RIOT Drum Kit."

And When you get RIOT Drums from us, you also get Freebie ROCK Grooves MIDI Pack FOR FREE!

With this MIDI Pack you will get over 40 beats and 20 fills. It gets you going and enables you to easily test out different beats for your songs.

These beats and fills were played by us, in a live session with an electronic drumkit. That's why they sounds real, and not just some robotic grooves edited by mouse directly in grid.

You can use Freebie ROCK Grooves with RIOT Drums to ease your process even further!

But it also works virtually on any other sampler, since MIDI is a cross-platform compatible standard, by far the most used standard in the musical software and hardware in world!

Why go with Ugritone?

We are not here to serve the "industry standard", which means we have no quotas to meet & no trends to follow.

Our products aren't made by A-list producers in a million dollar studio with drum kits rented from a museum. We don't process our sounds to the max on the way in.

We believe YOUR music should sound like YOU.

Less we process the sounds, the more it lets YOU process them.

Our footprint to the environment is minimal. But we hope that to your music, it'll be maximal!
