ZILDJIAN K CUSTOM CYMBALS
The Zildjian K custom range are based on the darker and more dryer sounds. Customized with a unique finish, tonal modifications and manufacturing techniques. The combination of K hammering and a variety of modern hammering techniques have made K Custom one of Zildjian's most popular lines and the choice of artists from a wide range of genres.
SIZZLE CHAIN HITS
The cymbal banks have been recorded with 5 unique sizzle chain hits. Sizzle chain hits are very different from your standard full cymbal hit. They are recorded with a chain laid on the top of the cymbal. This results in a cymbal hit that rattles and has a sizzle to it.
7 UNIQUE HIT POINTS
Each cymbal position is recorded in either 7 (white notes) or 5 (black notes) unique hit points. Hit points start on the bell and make their way out to the edge of the cymbal. Recording in this manner insures every possible hit type is cover across the entire cymbal.
Note C - Bell
Note D - Bow 1
Note E - Bow 2
Note F - Bow 3
Note G - Bow 4
Note A - Bow 5
Note B - Edge
CLOSED / OPEN HI-HAT HITS
In order to create realistic hi-hat loops every possible hit type must be recorded. Which is why we have recorded every cymbal in 4 unique positions. Position 1 is a fully closed cymbal on a hi-hat stand. Clamped down and chocked. Position 2 is a closed sizzle hit that is also chocked but allowed to sizzle on the hi-hat stand. Position 3 is a half sizzle hit which rings out more and has a longer sustain. Position 4 is a full sizzle hit. This hit lightly sizzles against the other cymbal resulting in a longer tail.
A cymbal can be played in many ways with many types of drum sticks or mallets. We have recorded with 4 unique stick types. Wood stick hits perform a standard cymbal hit you will most commonly hear in songs. Plastic stick hits achieve a snappier attack with a similar sound to the wood stick hit. Wood mallet hits created a more rounded fuller sound. Whilst nylon mallet hits achieve a highly unique low tonal sound.
VST parameters include pan. tune and ADSR. The ADSR can be used to shape your sound by removing the tail or ring, to create a tighter more snappy hit. The tune parameter can be used to tune the sound plus or minus 12 semitones. Pan can be used to position your sound left or right. Master control include volume and reverb parameters.
HI-HAT KEYBOARD MAPPING
All cymbals in the Hi-Hat bank 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.
