Haven't tried 'em on yet.  I'm interested to see how the congas are, 
though I'm disappointed to see that the "mute" samples are missing from 
congas 1 and 4 in the set.  Ah well, it _is_ free!

I haven't looked at the drum machine samples so much (since I'm more 
interested in samples of real drums :) and I haven't looked so much at 
the basic drum kit samples since I think there are already a lot of 
basic kit options open to me with the existing dbkits.  But I am 
interested in scoring odd bits of percussion .... The collection of 
hi-hats might be cool: I keep hoping to find more samples with half-open 
hats (or 1/3 and 2/3 open, maybe) so one could do cool patterns where it 
sounds like the hat is slowly opening in the course of a couple of bars :)
