8 UNIQUE KEYSWITCHES
Using the notes from E1 to B1 you can switch between 8 different playing styles. Each playing style contains 48 unique hits and can be switched on the fly by punching in the designated keyswitch note on the keyboard. Keyswitches allow you to program in authentic drum patterns that accurately emulate a real drummer.
UNMUTED / MUTED HITS
Muted hits are dampened on the drums skin using the left hand. This achieves a tighter hit with a more controlled resonance and ring of the drum. Unmuted hits do not use the left hand to dampen the drum and allow it to ring out at full resonance.
CENTRE / MIDDLE / EDGE HITS
Every keyswitch and playing style has been recorded in the highest of detail. Each octave includes 4 hits for the edge, middle and centre of the drum. Each position achieves a unique hit unlike the next. Centre hits are solid and powerful. Middle hits much like centre hits but ring out more, like a combination between an edge and centre hit. Edge hits twang and have a more resonant hit to them. All 4 hits in each position are truly unique and sound unlike the drum hit before or after it.
The master includes an ADSR and master power on/off switch. The ADSR is your standard attack, decay, sustain and release. The ADSR can be used to shape your sound and control the amount of tail the cymbal has.
The FX rack consists of a low and highpass filter, distortion, bit crusher and stereo widener. Use the filters to roll off any unwanted low end rumble or harsh high frequencies in the cymbals. Add distortion and drive to the cymbals for a creative crunch and saturated sound. Finally increase the stereo image using the stereo widener and achieve a more spacious spread cymbal sound.
EQ / COMPRESSION RACK
The EQ and compressor that is built into our Kontakt instrument is modelled on the SSL G EQ and G Bus Compressor. Both the low and high bands have a choice between a bell curve or shelf. The two mid bands have dedicated Q's which can be used with pin point accuracy to enhance the cymbal or remove a resonant tone. The bus compressor has been positioned at the final stage of the chain and can be used to control the cymbals dynamics.
IMPULSE RESPONSE REVERB RACK
The reverb includes a total of 128 different impulse responses, recorded in unique locations across the United Kingdom. Locations include an aircraft base, military fort, gunpowder mill, mental hospital, school, enclosed spaces, outdoor spaces and indoor spaces. Our impulse responses are highly unique, one of a kind recordings that range from large rooms and tunnels, to small enclosed spaces such as washing machines and inside a water tower.
All instruments are mapped to the keyboard in exactly the same way. By doing so ensures midi files written for one instrument trigger the following instrument in exactly the same way.
