As the name suggests, DRUMASONIC represents a high-end approach: In sampling one of the best, modern and universal sounding drum kits along with some of the finest snare drums, hihat, ride, crash, china and splash cymbals, no sound-altering devices have been employed. All the signals have been converted with high-end equipment directly after the preamps at 96 kHz, 24 bit. The goal was to provide the discerning musician, sound technician or producer – in the sense of authentic drum miking – a variety of phase-compatible, freely combinable and distributable signals out of two distinct recording rooms. Instead of delivering pre-defined sounds or tons of patches, DRUMASONIC addresses its focus on tonal authenticity, signal purity and mixing flexibility.
A modern drum set and some of the finest cymbals, pristinely recorded in two distinct, punchy sounding rooms – Damped Room and Large Room.
Unprocessed signals which have been extensively phase-optimized, perfectly cut and velocity-mapped with additionally developed software tools.
Microphones: 5.0 Surround, Overheads A/B, Room M/S, Trash, Close mics, Bass Drum inside/outside, Snare Drum top/bottom – freely mixable and routable.
Comprehensive Snare resonance and HiHat concepts, freely assignable Mapping, Velocity, Tuning, MIDI controllers.
High performance, state-of-the-art KONTAKT4.2 engine, intuitive user interface.
DRUMASONIC runs on all current Mac and PC systems with about 3.5 GB of free hard disk space (download edition with lossless compressed 44.1 kHz/24 bit samples; representing 8 GB uncompressed) as stand-alone application as well as AU, VST and RTAS plug-in. With the purchase of DRUMASONIC, you qualify for a cross-grade offer to the full version of KONTAKT 4 by Native Instruments.
