Synchron Power Drums - Three energetic drum sets in one magnificent space

  • Dynamic, powerful and raw recordings of three drum sets, captured at Synchron Stage Vienna
  • Ideal for intense patterns, drum battles and multi-player grooves
  • Includes an exclusive selection of cinematic drum loops
  • Three complementary patterns in one MIDI file, ready to be played or modified
  • Humanize Delay introduces inaccuracy when needed, with intensity adjustable by MIDI automation
  • Choose from tailor-made mixer presets, from clean to highly processed sounds
  • Stereo and surround formats
  • Perfect addition to all Synchron Series products

The drum kit is the pillar of a groove. Put three kits together in a fantastic ambient room and you’ll have an explosion of pounding energy. That’s the concept behind Synchron Power Drums – hard-hitting, energetic drum grooves played simultaneously on three independent yet interacting drum kits in Synchron Stage Vienna’s famous main hall. The sound will take your music to the highest levels of intensity, and let your inner drummer go wild!

With the Tama Star (2017) placed between the Tama Superstar (1972) and the Sonor Acryl Champion Vintage (1975) kits on the sound stage, you have the option of using these drums sets all together or individually, both in their recorded positions or in a centered position. All three instruments represent the diverse sonic properties of different recording eras to give you a wide variety of sounds.

3 Drum Sets - 1 Venue

The Sonor Acryl Champion Vintage (left) delivers that perfect 70s sound and has been played by legends such as John Bonham, Ringo Starr, Karen Carpenter, Nick Mason and Keith Moon. Its acrylic shells have a louder, punchier sound than wooden drums, and a well-tuned acrylic snare drum can deliver a ton of sonic “crack” and projection.

The Tama Superstar (right) was very present in the 80s. It is made of birch shells, providing a deep, warm, dry and punchy sound – exactly what your typical disco/rock production needs. Interestingly, Billy Cobham and Elvin Jones were among the first adopters of this versatile instrument.

Sampling Details

Up to 10 velocities and 6 alternations for each hit allow for subtle and intimate loops that can transition seamlessly to dramatic intensity. The main concept for this product is to create a raw and natural energy that can only be captured in a scoring stage like Synchron Stage Vienna.
