Analogue Drums releases Pizazz – Jazz Brushes Kit

Analogue Drums has launched Pizazz, a drum sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Analogue Drums Pizazz

Pizazz is a vintage jazz kit played with brushes. Based around a toneful ’70s Rogers kit with a selection of classy cymbals and a versatile Rogers Dynasonic snare, Pizazz provides the classic brush backdrop for jazz and other genres. The mix of the kit can be taken from crisp and articulate to smooth and spacious with a few fader adjustments.

Several snare articulations, two separate pairs of toms (high and medium tension), two kick drums both sampled open and dampened, two pairs of hihats, and two rides give you a heap of options for selecting the tones that work best for your track. Check the kit details below.

The kit was sampled at The Manor through a selection of fine vintage and modern recording pieces, finished with outboard compressors.

Pizzaz Jazz Brushes features

  • Kontakt instrument files with multi-out and stereo versions.
  • Trigger TCI/PRS presets for kick/snare/toms with separated mic layers.
  • 4176 sample .wav files in unencrypted 24bit, 44.1khz format.
  • Reference manual (PDF).
  • 2.1GB Zip file (3.15GB unzipped).

The library is available for purchase for $29 USD.

Analogue Drums releases Smoker drum library

Analogue Drums Smoker

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.

Smoker features

  • 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.

Analogue Drums releases Boxer for Kontakt + Hot Box Bundle

Analogue Drums Boxer

Analogue Drums has launched Boxer, a drum instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Boxer is a punchy alt rocker with a boxy edge. It has an unpretentious direct sound with alt rock and pop written all over it. A solid kick, toneful toms, and three snares cover plenty of ground, each snare giving the kit a completely different feel. The kit works equally well for laid back grooves or fast and frantic flurries. Hear the kit for yourself by checking out the demos.

The kit was sampled at Sing Sing South studio in Melbourne, Australia, in a mid-sized tracking room, though a Neve desk, with the usual assortment of high end hand-picked mics, and processed with select outboard pieces.

The kit has been mixed with an indy production in mind, if you want to take the mix further there is plenty of scope to put your stamp on it.

Boxer is available for purchase for $29 USD.

Analogue Drums has also introduced the Hot Box Bundle, comprising the Boxer, Bombastix, BlackSmith, and FatStacks drum packs, priced at $79 USD.

Analogue Drums intros Bombastix – Kontakt Edition

Analogue Drums Bombastix

Analogue Drums has released Bombastix , a virtual drum instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Bombastix is a sampling of a “holy grail” classic 1976 Ludwig in serious rock dimensions, including a gargantuan 26″ kick. The kit has been tracked with 3 distinct snare variations, and two sets of cymbals – hand picked classic Paistes, and modern Sabian AAXs – to give you plenty of options for fitting the kit to your track.

Bombastix will fit the bill for modern and classic rock tracks, or anywhere punchy hard hitting is required. It has been mixed for polished but natural tone – good-to-go as-is, or you can easily take the mix further.

The kit was sampled at The Lab studio in Auckland, New Zealand, in a mid-sized tracking room, though a Neve desk, with the usual assortment of high end hand-picked mics, and processed with select outboard pieces.

The library is available to purchase for $29 USD.

Analogue Drums releases BlackSmith for Kontakt

Analogue Drums BlackSmith

Analogue Drums has launched BlackSmith, a virtual drum instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

BlackSmith is a modern metal workhorse with an aggressive yet toneful sound. This kit will lay an unshakable foundation for any metal track, or any other genre where a tight punchy articulate kit is called for.

BlackSmith gives you several mic layers to blend to your taste, easily taking the sound of the kit from clean and tight to spacious or dirty with the push of a fader. Three swappable snare variations help fit the kit to your track.

The kit we sampled is a top-of-the-line Sonor SQ2 Acrylic set, with three snare options, and classic Zildjian A Custom cymbals. The kit was sampled in Melbourne’s Sing Sing South studio, a medium sized tracking room.

BlackSmith features

  • Multi-sampling: each kit component contains up to 7 velocity layers for expressive detail and dynamics, and 6x round-robin hits for every single zone for realistic performances.
  • Mic layers: 6x individually controllable mic layers: Close mics, Overheads, Room mics, Smash mic, Kick Sub, and Snare-Bottom
  • eKit mode switch to ‘eKit’ mode when using a Roland V-Drum kit, or leave set to ‘Keyboard mode’ for direct MIDI sequencing. The layout is General MIDI (GM) compatible.
  • Output routing: stereo and multi-channel output versions provided.
  • Sensitivity control: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more intricate and subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for heavier tracks.
  • Presets: for quickly accessing different sounds.
  • Trigger maps: for sound replacement: kick, snare, toms – each with separated mic layers

BlackSmith is available to purchase for $29 USD. Requires Kontakt 4.2+ full retail version.
