Analogue Drums has launched Smoker, a jazz drum kit library for Kontakt, Trigger and Wav.
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.
- Kontakt instrument files with multi-out and stereo versions.
- Trigger TCI/PRS presets for kick/snare/toms with separated mic layers.
- 5574 sample .wav files in unencrypted 24bit, 44.1khz format.
- 3.5GB Zip file (5.5GB unzipped).
Smoker is available for purchase for $29 USD.
