Royotoms is a sampled rototoms set.
This 8 rototoms set was sampled by Roy Miller, it is tuned to play the famous "Time" song by Pink FLoyd. A reverb set of samples was created from the dry samples, using an IR impulse from the legendary EMT-140 plate reverb unit used in the original recording. Credit also goes to George Sukhishvili who had the idea and took the time to help.
  • 48 mono 44.1Khz/24 bit dry samples.
  • 48 stereo 44.1Khz/24 bit reverb samples.
  • 3 velocity layers.
  • 2 round-robin samples by layer.

You can download the dry mono samples HERE

This is spectacular; thank you so much for sharing. I'd love to use the sounds live with my Roland TD30 drums along with some other VSTs but wonder if there is any way to change the midi notes from the default to something different? They happen to be the same as some of the high-hat notes.

I cannot get this to work in Logic Pro. I had it working on my old Mac Pro (2008), and have checked, and it is in the same place as it was on that machine, but it is just not showing up. If anybody has any ideas, that would be mightily helpful. Apart from that, the samples are good, and the interface is pretty decent. I just need to do "Time" again, and I can't find any other Rototom samples anywhere (that I am prepared to part cash with, that is not over £150. I am sure I could buy a set second hand for that and make my own samples.)

Anyhoo, manual samples. I have 5 Roland pads I’m triggering but there’s a bunch of roto tuned notes. Anyone know which would be the best notes to use for Pink Floyd - Time? Thanks!

Sounds great. I've always loved rototoms, and at one time had an acoustic kit with a tom rack consisting of all 7 rototom sizes, 6" - 18". This plug in emulates that set up accurately, the only thing lacking is I wish you could alter the pitches, which is one of the things that made rotos such a unique animal. Add that feature and it's a five star plug-in.

I couldn't get the AU to work (as Ableton doesn't officially support AU) but the VST works fine - copy the rototoms VST file into your plug-ins folder (probably Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST). Then rescan in Ableton and it will be in your VST plug-ins folder.

Hi mate, did you figure this out? I just did for the first time.... next for me is to map to my Roland vDrum kit, but the VST is working in Logic Pro. Move the *.component file into your library/audio/plugins/components. You need to admin to accept file. Then in Logic look at your settings - preferences, advanced and have adavnced editing checked. Id then save and restart Mac. After that, back in LPX open new project for software Instrument, make sure 'Open Library' is checked. Now on the channel strip (mine defaults to electric piani) click the instrument, go down to AU Instruments and you will see ALANVISTA folder... click rototoms and boom, up she pops. Enjoy.

But In Pro Tools I can't find it. I notice the plugin is a Royotoms.component file. Will this format even work with my spec? Does anybody have any help. From what I've heard so far, the samples sound amazingly authentic. Thanks!

Hi & thanks for this very useful VSTi. As I wish to use this at gigs live.. at the moment I have set up a Roland TD6 midi out to a roland edirol interface. & there is a latency problem. Do you know anyway of reducing this problem... asio4all driver is one thing I've heard about.. but any other help would be appreciated.
Alex May 11 2017
May 11 2017
You really should use that asio4all driver, it will help reduce latency and it's free. Or if you're ready to spend 100$, get Focusrite Solo 2nd gen and use its ASIO driver.
John Butler May 22 2017
May 22 2017
Thanks for your reply ALex...yes I have loaded the ASio4all driver. Latency is now acceptable... But if I play fast ( Like a drum roll ) after a few seconds the sound breaks up ( digital distortion ).I have tried different buffer & sampling rates, but can't seem to get rid of this problem, I think it is like a data overload.. if you understand what I mean... any ideas??
Alex May 22 2017
May 22 2017
it still looks like latency problem, but increasing buffer size should have helped. is your pc powerful? what is the sound card? use only bit depth/sample rates supported by your card. I'd recommend using this VST under Reaper + ASIO4ALL as a sound driver. It's free and very resource-friendly digital audio workstation.
John Butler May 25 2017

Hi & thanks Alex. The interface I am using is a roland Edirol, with the VST loaded on Cantabile 3. I can also use Cubase.
Alex May 25 2017
May 25 2017
don't have any experience with any of these mentioned, so can't really comment. try Reaper with asio4all, it's free, no bloatware inside, and it's very CPU-friendly. if it keeps breaking up even in Reaper, then I give up.

Same for me, I couldn't find a dedicated rototom virtual instrument or library, so when I saw Roy Miller's video, I had this idea to ask him to sample his set and then give the recorded samples to Alan to make a plugin. I think, the resulting instrument is great and inspiring to work with. I'm sure musicians will be pleased to find this free, great rototom VST.

Just a quick update - still love this VST but decided to 'crank it to the max' and put it through the built in compressor in Reaper.

@Stumpypepys - sorry for the late reply, only just read your question. I didn't do anythign special, simply installed the plugin in my usual plugins folder, refreshed the plugin thing in Reaper so that it would recognize the new plugin, and set it up in a new track. I used the designated keys on my midi keyboard to get each sound, and played the keys manually to record to the midi roll.
