Un nouveau kit de batterie Drum Drops pour Kontakt
Incontestablement le Real Thing!Publié le 30/08/14 à 01:23 (contenu en anglais)
Works perfectly within Kontakt.
I have been using it for 48-hours (straight).
The 1965 Ludwig Super Classic Kit by DrumDrops is an excellent drum sample library and rhythm workstation that provides a detailed patch for Kontakt. The Pack contains up to sixteen velocities per articulation and 5 round robins that total over 8000 individual samples. The kit sounds great out-of-the-box and it is easily customizable and adjustable. Ludwig’s Super Classic model was a standard configuration for the industry and used by many top drummers, including the one and only Ringo, who served a song without dominating it! The ’65 kit had a simple, compact configuration; yet, it was powerful enough to drive some of the greatest bands in the history of pop, rock, jazz, soul, etc. I love having “Ringo in a box,” but even if I weren’t a Beatle-maniac I would buy this sample library for the pure sound of the kit. There is something very special about it! This library is everything I sonically hoped for — authentic, warm, tight, punchy, alive, and personal without any unwanted room ambience. I’m not sure what microphones, preamps, drummers, and engineers were used to create this sample library, but whatever and whoever they are — they did a sweet job. Until now, I had been constructing my pseudo Super Classic Kit by cannibalizing bits and pieces from various sample libraries to approximate the sound I was after. Sadly, coming close was not good enough. In addition to the authentic sound, DrumDrops has created an interface that serves as a rhythm workstation. It comes with a Groove Player, featuring 800 or so MIDI patterns created by real drummers and an eight channel, 32-step per channel Step Sequencer. There is also a Groove Slicer that I have yet to explore. The beat creation aspect of this pack allows me to finally ditch some of the other subpar sample libraries that I’ve been holding onto that have a groove player.

FEATURES I LIKE MOST
• Simple, powerful interface.
• Easy to process according to taste.
• Randomization feature for tuning, velocities, EQ, etc.
• Sequencer and Groove player.
• Microphone blend – ability to vary the balance of the different microphones at their respective positions.
• Eight channel mixer (Mute, Solo, Phase Reverse, etc.) with excellent routing to DAW.
• Built in buss compressor and tape saturator.
• Useful mix presets.
• Responsive, innovative developer.
VALUE FOR THE PRICE
• Excellent quality vs. price ratio when compared to other vintage packs.
QUALITY OF THE SOUND
• Unmistakably the real thing. Sound is phenomenal, and with very little imagination I can feel and smell the mahogany.
• Can I add my own MIDI drum patterns to the Groove Player?
• What revisions and updates are projected for this library?
Knowing what I know, I would buy this again without hesitation! Yet, this is a bittersweet day for me as a songwriter and producer. Sweet, because I finally have one complete, authentic, great sounding, industry standard 1965 Ludwig Super Classic Kit; Bitter, because I no longer have any excuses. My muse is looking me and asking, “Well, are you going to chew gum or bang out some beats?” Now that I have this drum sample library, it’s time to create some music! I highly recommend this kit to any eMusician, producer, sound designer, film or video sound-tracker, video gamer, DJ, etc., who digs the vintage, yet timeless mid-60s sound. Tommy Zai gives this fine Kontakt 5 Pack two hard-hitting rim shots help up high! Thank you, DrumDrops, for resurrecting and breathing life back into my ultimate dream kit.

The particular kit we used is one from session drummer Tim Weller's collection and is a blue oyster pearl finish. The drums are shallower than many modern drums which helps focus their sound and control their decay. For this kit we went for a dry controlled sound and used Miloco's The Square in London. The kit was close mic'd. The Kit was recorded by Drumdrops engineer Ben Thackeray and mixed by Grammy award winning, ex Abbey Road engineer Guy Massey.
The Kit can be purchased in five different packs.
The Kontakt 5 Pack comes with the Drumdrops Kontakt Interface for exclusive use in Native Instruments Kontakt version 5. The interface comes with it's own mixer section giving you control over the individual drum tracks and convolution reverbs that we have included. Each channel has an EQ and Transient Master. You can change the velocity curves of the drums and there is a randomisation feature to add subtle changes to make the drums even more realistic.
The Multi-Velocity pack provides up to 16 velocity steps of each articulation. Each sample included in this pack is a stereo mix of the close microphone, overhead and room mics. This pack comes with patches for Battery, Kontakt 5, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One's Impact Soundset, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Reason Refills and Renoise but can be used in any drum machine or sampler that reads 24 bit WAV files. We have also included guide MIDI Maps for a lot of the popular defaults. This pack is a great choice for those who want multiple velocity articulations but do not use Kontakt 5.
The Single Hits pack is the most basic pack and provides three velocities of each articulation. This pack also includes patches for Battery 3, Kontakt 5, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One's Impact Soundset, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Reason Refills and Renoise but if you run any drum machines such as Akai MPC60s this pack may be ideal. This pack comes loaded with 291 samples. The samples in this pack comes as 24 bit WAVs and 16 bit WAVs for the legacy drum machines.
The Drum Replacement pack is our sample replacement pack. This pack comes with three different patches - Slate Trigger V2, Drumagog V5 and DrumXchanger. Each patch uses different amounts of samples depending on the capability of the software. If you run any of these pieces of software then this pack is for you. For full details on this pack read on here.
The All Samples pack contains the Multi-Velocity Pack, the Singles Hits Pack, the Drum Replacement Pack and the seperate mic samples from the Kontakt 5 Pack. This pack gives you ultimate flexibility, all the patches we create and three different packs of samples. For more on this pack read here.
