Drumdrops announces 1963 Premier Outfits 54 single shot multi-velocity drum kit

Drumdrops 1963 Premier Outfits 54

Drumdrops has announced the upcoming 1963 Premier Outfits 54, the first release in a series of 8 single shot multi-velocity drum kits.

Already one of the world’s leading places to purchase bespoke live drum tracks as multi- tracks, stems and loops, Drumdrops.com are now gearing up to start selling the first of their high-standard, single shot multi-velocity drum kits from May 2013.

The first kit set for release is the Vintage 1963 Premier Outfits 54 Kit, similar to the one played by Ringo Starr in his early career. This classic vintage kit was recorded in Miloco’s The Pool in London, taking advantage of the studio’s fantastic sounding live space. The talents of drummer, Adam Falkner, were harnessed to sample the kit in multiple velocity steps to create the most realistic sounding packs possible. This kit is an essential addition to any drum library, offering the highest quality authentic sounding 60s kit at your fingertips.

To make projects even easier, the 1963 Premier Outfits 54 kit is available to purchase in three separate packs.

1963 Premier Outfits 54 features

  • The Kontakt 5 Pack — Probably the most impressive part about this forthcoming release; Drumdrops have built their own Kontakt 5 interface featuring everything existing Kontakt 5 users have come to expect. Sixteen velocity levels are included on each articulation and multiple round robins resulting in over 7000 samples, ensures this kit is meticulously and successfully matched to the real thing. The mixer has mute, solo, pan, phase, routing and two aux sends and each channel comes with a 4-band EQ and Transient Master. Custom velocity curves and MIDI Mapping are also standard. There are a number of convolution reverbs included, which have been taken from a variety of commercial studios, and some of the more interesting spring and plate reverbs, whilst randomisation features further enhance the authentic sound. These are just some of the features on the forthcoming pack. For a detailed overview, click here to download the manual.
  • The Multi-Velocity Pack — Don’t have Kontakt 5? Don’t worry – Drumdrops have covered that, too! This pack is perfect for the pro’s that may want a smaller sample set to add to their library, and with up to sixteen velocity levels on each articulation and no round robins, it’s the ideal choice. Built to load up in any sampler or drum machine, Drumdrops have also made life easier, going that one step further by including templates for Kontakt, Battery, EXS24, idrum, Maschine, with Geist and MIDI templates included for the sampler templates. You can download the multi-velocity Pack manual here.
  • The Single Hits Pack — Designed with drum machine users in mind or those who don’t need multiple velocities, simplicity was the key with this pack and with just three velocities included, there’s a super simple price to go with it as well. Like the multi-velocity kit, this single hit package features the same templates for ease and accessibility; just download and go! To download the single pack manual click here.

The Premier Outfits 54 Kit for Kontakt will be available to purchase on May 7th, 2013, priced at £30 GBP. The multi-velocity and single hits packs are priced £10 GBP and £5 GBP respectively. More kits will be released over the coming months.
