Bluenoise Plugins has announced Drummix Rock 1, an acoustic drum instrument for Windows.
Drummix Rock 1 is a acoustic drum plugin recorded at a professional recording studio with pristine equipment. The drum kit used for this particular sound is a classic 4-piece Ludwig Fab Four drum kit. It can be used in many types of music but we feel that this is mostly a rock drum kit.
Rock 1 is recorded in huge room with lots of ambience to bring out that big rock sound we like! The top-notch microphones are sent into a Neve VR60 Legend and further into pristine RME converters. Only Class A equipment are used and you can rest assure that the drum sound you’ll get is of high class. It will sound as someone is playing the drums in a world-class studio when you hit those MIDI notes.
The plugin is available to purchase for Windows (VST) for the introductory price of $30 USD.

Wavesfactory has announced the release of its StrumGTR Vol. II. Acoustic sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Logic EXS24.
After the great success of the first volume of the StrumGTR collection (StrumGTR Electric) we sampled real strummed major and minor chords of an acoustic guitar (upstroke and downstroke) recorded in stereo.
It’s been sampled the way real guitarists play. What does that mean? It means that when a guitarist strums softer, he/she doesn’t strum all the strings, only the first ones depending if he upstrokes or downstrokes, that’s why this instrument sounds so real.
StrumGTR Vol. II. Acoustic features
- Major and Minor chords.
- Upstrokes and Downstrokes.
- Stereo WAV files 44.1 kHz 24 bits.
- Full natural decay.
- Stereo recording with hi quality mics, preamps and converters.
- 5 velocity layers, 4 round robin (repetitions).
- Mutes, open strings and fret noises.
- Midi patterns included.
- For Kontakt and EXS24 (full version of Kontakt 3.5 or superior required. Kontakt Player will run in demo mode).
- 2,61 Gb installed.
The sample library is available to purchase for 9.95 EUR.
