Exclusive Free Drum Rack from Mode Audio

This Free Rack Wednesday is a first. I usually make Audio and MIDI effect racks but this week I got a reach out from Mode Audio who makes really great sample packs. They asked me to make an exclusive Drum Rack using one of their sample packs.
Of course I couldn’t not use an entire commercial pack but I did got my hands on a selection of  heavy processed sounds from their Ignition pack.

This Drum Rack comes in a form of a sound selector for each drum element. Meaning you can use the first Macro to switch between different sounds of the same category.
