Ethnic Drum Ensemble - 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.
Requires the Full version of Kontakt 5 (version 220.127.116.11 or later)
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.
Ensemble Drums - Loops offers 375+ carefully sculpted percussion loops arranged into 2 main categories: Loop Menus and Single Loops. These loops, comprised of both straight and triplet grooves, are perfect for composing in any rhythmic environment.
The Loop Menus are intelligently mapped and formatted into “breakout” presets, allowing you to perform the full loop in a single key or mix and match individual layers. Single Loop presets provide level, pan, and tuning for each slice, and allow you to quickly recompose your groove via midi drag-and-drop.
The Loop Mutator™ allows you to re-compose and re-imagine 375+ loops with spectacular results. Take full control over number of steps, time signature, step subdivision (straight, dotted, or triplet), individual step duration, Loop/Slice selection, and velocity. Use the randomize option to quickly generate intricate patterns and beats.
Eight fully customizable and linkable patterns per preset allow you to create complex grooves and sequences (up to 128 steps) of full rhythmic loops (in the Menus). Activate the Loop Mutator with a Single Loop preset to quickly re-compose or change the timing of any loop. Use any of Ensemble Drums’ percussion loops as they are or turn on the Loop Mutator™ and create unique sequences that are completely your own.
The Advanced Trigger FX are switchable real-time effects with incredible scope for intuitive and creative sound tweaking. Control the speed at which the effect is engaged and disengaged, or turn on the sequence button, and modulate the effect changes with a 32 step sequencer. Each of the 5 Trigger FX can be triggered via MIDI.
The Sound of the Collection
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.
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.
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.
