Analogue Drums Smoker KONTAKT-DISCOVER
DISCOVER | 15 AUGUST 2014 | 2.87GB
Smoker is a jazz kit with all the credentials ticked. Based around a toneful ’70s Rogers kit with a selection of classic snares and cymbals, Smoker has a warm vintage tone fit for soulful and sparse quartets, hyped up frenetic bebop, bombastic big band, funked up lounge and everything in between. The mix of the kit can be taken from crisp and articulate to smooth and spacious with a few fader adjustments.
Three snares, two separate pairs of toms (high and medium tension), two kick drums both sampled open and dampened, two pairs of hihats, and three rides give you a heap of options for selecting the tones that work best for your track.
The kit was sampled at The Manor through a selection of fine vintage and modern recording pieces, finished with outboard compressors.
• Multi-sampling: each kit component contains up to 7 velocity layers for expressive detail, dynamics and realism – check the details at the bottom of this page.
• Round-robin: natural performance with 6x round-robin hits for every zone.
• Switchable instruments: 3x snares, 4x kick variations, 2x tom variations, 2x swappable hihats and 3x rides.
