Ethnic Drum Ensembles Collection

Master Sessions: Ethnic Drum Ensembles delivers 6 unique multi-sampled drum ensembles and over 375 tempo-synced loops. Each ensemble consists of up to 12 different drums, performed simultaneously by 7 players. Through creative processing and mixing, Heavyocity’s team composed banks of loops to be inspiring and immediately useful.

Requires Kontakt or free Kontakt Player 5 version 5.3.1.37 or later

Ethnic Drum Ensembles - Kits

The 6 ensembles contain a mixture of taikos, daikos, bongos, congas, frame drums, djembes, dumbeks, bodhrans, darbukas, batas, cajons, and surdos. These expressive, punchy ensembles are presented in both menu and single kit presets, providing complete control over your sound. Heavyocity has further tweaked and affected the kits, creating an additional 28 presets with a more aggressive edge.

Mix and shape your sound using Heavyocity’s proprietary interface containing global effects (reverb, delay, distortion, and chorus mod), per-drum EQ, per-channel ADSR, TriggerFX, and the signature Punish and Twist knobs.

Ethnic Drum Ensembles - Loops

Ethnic Drum Ensembles - Loops contains over 375 tempo-synced phrases arranged in menu and single loop presets. As an exciting new feature, the content is now divided into straight and triplet loops. It is a veritable “Barrage - à - Trois”. Rearrange and adjust the loops by slice with Heavyocity’s signature “Loop Mutator”. Dial in the Trigger FX, master effects, filter modulation and ADSR for radical sonic results.

Layer massive kits with hybrid loops to create huge walls of percussion. Mix and match loop “stems” to build your own unique combinations of tempo-synced rhythms.

Collection ScreensCollection Details

Three levels of effects are intrinsically bound to the Kit and Loop components — apply effects globally, engage the Trigger-FX, or tweak individual sounds.

Twist, Punish, Effect

Globally affect the preset with one of the 4 Master FX (Delay, Mod, Drive, and Convolution). You have control over four effect-specific parameters (like effect amount, rate, size, or depth). Dial in the aggression with the signature “Punish” Knob, a combination of saturation, distortion, and compression. Or, modulate the shape of the sound with the “Twist” knob.

EQ, Filter, Modulate

Sculpt your sound with per-channel and per-loop EQs or add sizzle and punch with the 4-band Master EQ. Control the modulation of filters with an envelope or LFO in Ethnic Drum Ensembles - Loops, altering the amount and rate of an LFO, or trigger the Filter with an ADSR envelope.

The Sound of the Collection

Bunker Studios

Ethnic Drum Ensembles was recorded at Bunker Studios in Brooklyn, NY by John Davis (not of Korn). The 3,000 square foot recording studio utilizes a wide array of analog gear, including an SSL 4040e mixing console, BAE microphone Pre’s, and a massive collection of vintage and modern microphones. The pinewood room of Studio A, boasting a huge 25’ ceiling, was the ideal environment for achieving the tight, punchy impact we desired for the Ensemble Drums Collection.

Ensemble Performances

The Heavyocity team performed all the percussion found in Ensemble Drums collection. Each ensemble consists of round-robin performances at multiple velocities. Close, room and ceiling-mounted X-Y mics created the perfect capturing environment for the massive ensembles.

Creative Processing

All content was mixed and mastered through Heavyocity’s high end signal chain of analog and digital equipment. In addition to the crisp, organic percussion, we tweaked, eq’ed, filtered, and modulated the content to produce grittier, overdriven sounds and loops.
