Acoustic Drum Kits

Acoustic Drum Kits

Drum Kits Include:

  • Gretsch
  • Yamaha
  • DW
  • Pearl
  • Ludwig
  • Tama

Acoustic Kits is a collection of six complete drum kits recorded in professional studios. The library includes Gretsch, Yamaha, DW, Pearl, Ludwig, and Tama drum kits. The Acoustic Kits were meticulously recorded through a complete range of playable velocities using 16 microphones, tube preamps and pristine 24-bit ADCs. The close and overhead samples were then mixed for each individual drum for optimal punch and room ambience. Each kit is comprised of up to six layers for unmatched realism. Additional post processing has not been added allowing users full control of the final mix. The result is real drums in real rooms played by real drummers.
