Vintage Ludwig kit combined with Zildijan cymbals

Capture the essence of legendary drum sounds with an expertly recorded kit, using the renowned Glyn Johns technique with four microphones. Each drum element is meticulously blended from all four mics into a single sample, delivering unparalleled sound quality and an incredibly efficient workflow.

Key Features:

  • Streamlined Workflow: Each kit element comes as a single, perfectly blended sample, allowing for focused music creation with a mixer fader per element.

  • Dynamic Range: Experience natural and expressive sounds with up to 7 dynamic layers per element. Snare has 7 layers, kick has 6, and toms have 5.

  • Round Robins: Enhance realism with 7 round robins, ensuring no two hits sound the same.

Kit Elements: Kick, Snare, Tom 1, Tom 2, Floor Tom, Hi-hat, Crash, Splash, Ride and Cowbell
