Analogue Drums has announced Big Mono Redux, a drum sample library.
After numerous requests from users of Big Mono, we revisited the original recording session from 2003!
We’ve come up with a new drum library with the same sweet sound as the original Big Mono, but now with loads of options for sonic control.
Round-robins, controllable mic layers, adjustable sensitivity and even panning controls are provided to fit the kit into your track. With the same heritage as the original Big Mono, it’s a vintage Ludwig kit, tracked through killer mics and a ’70s Neve directly to 2″ tape.
