By popular demand, I've (Lars Muldjord) written a brief tutorial on how to create your own drumkit using DGEdit. Check out this section to read it. Keep in mind that this process is very much a work in progress, since the editor is in a very early state of development. However, it is very useful, so it is entirely possible to do it. All kits downloadable from this site was created using the described process.
DrumGizmo user Michael Oswald has made a guide on how to create a DrumGizmo kit from samples taken from drumkit sample libraries.
A user of ours called Michael Oswald made a very thorough tutorial on how to build an entire song from scratch. One of the tools he uses is DrumGizmo. He shows us both how to compose the drums and how to mix them aswell. Be sure to check out all parts of his tutorial at LibreMusicProduction! For the DrumGizmo stuff, we provide you with these links:
