Voyager Drums by Best Service brings you two Power Drum Kits, recorded and edited by the maker of "Artist-Drums" and "Artist Grooves".

The punchy and powerful sound is perfect for your Pop, Rock, Jazz and Funk productions. 360 MIDI Grooves for instant use are included.

VD kitVoyager Drums contains two different YamahaTM Drum Kits:
 

  • Kit 1 is a Yamaha Maple Custom
  • Kit 2 is a Yamha Recording Custom.
  • PaisteTM Line Series cymbals were recorded with the kits

 

 

Each drum kit comes with three different instruments:

  • FULL Kit, direct, overhead and room microphones
  • OVERHEAD, direkt und overhead microphones
  • DIRECT, direct microphone only

Voyager Drums were recorded from three different microphone positions with 24 bits and 96 KHz, 5 Round Robins and 16 velocity layers in the Principal Studios near Münster, Germany. Finest equipment from SPL, API, Apogee as well as microphones by Neumann, Sennheiser, AKG, Rhode and Shure were used to achieve the best possible results.

You can set individual Attack and Decay times for all three microphone positions. Since the direct signal was recorded in mono you can set your own panorama.

Trigger Samples

The Trigger Sound allows you to enhance the natural sound of the bass drum (also available for snare and toms) with synthetic drum sounds. This way you can create new and exciting drum sounds. The trigger sounds have an individual Delay and Pitch control as well.

Auszug

Wer seine Library mit einer guten Soundalternative aufpeppen möchte oder ein solides Startpaket sucht, liegt bei den Voyager Drums mit Sicherheit richtig. Die Audioqualität ist vom Feinsten – das gilt nicht nur für die lupenrein gesampelten Natursounds, sondern auch für die analogen Layer.

Fazit

Voyager Drums bieten zu euinem angemessenen Preis zwei akustische Yamaha Drumkits in bester Audioqualität, die sich dynamisch lebendig und echt in Szene setzen lassen. Die mischbaren individuellen Mikrofinierungen ermöglichen eine detaillierte Gestaltung des Raumklangs. Zusätzliche Samplöes analoger Drums eröffnen einen ungewohnt druck- oder effektvollen Klang.
