In a sea of drum kit products out there, we have decided to produce something quite different.
Affordable drum kits that bring back the joy and simplicity of working with sampled drums and pack new powerful concepts. With an extended dynamic range of pure raw attitude, the top velocities are at the point of stick-breaking power.
So you could really rock out!
MAD brings an integrated hi-end environment for creating Uber realistic grooves with maximum impact, while retaining a very focused and direct tonal quality.
With its versatile mixer, groove engine, and playability features, anyone can quickly program realistic beats and rhythms.
Under the hood, MAD’s customized and elaborate script packs lots of enhancements for realistic reproduction, several of which never-before-seen in a drum kit library!
Most importantly – this kit is going to cut through any mix…it won’t just sit!
MAD is is suitable for a variety of music styles but we aimed particularly at Indie Rock/Punk and Funk. It was designed to utilize an extended dynamic range that is true to the instrument and that reflects the dynamic balance of real drummers.
Most often, drum kit libraries extend the dynamic range by excessive modulation of volume with velocity, which only attenuates the signal, causing the dynamic range to be unrealistic.
With MAD, however, a powerful dynamic range is reflected without loosing touch with the musicality of the instrument. A strict playing style was coupled with use of a live PA in the recording process (yep! read on…) to harness as much punch, rawness, and power from the drums. Other offerings such as dynamic microphone bleed control, absolutely noiseless samples, and a custom script that focuses on realistic playback, help unleash a fresh new drum kit, with lots of attitude.
