Analogue Drums releases Monotown and Gorilla sample libraries + Tape Series Two Bundle

Analogue Drums has announced the release of Monotown and Gorilla, two new drum sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Analogue Drums Monotown

Inspired by the drums of Motown, Stax and sweet R’n’B from yesteryear comes Monotown. It will drive home the beat to old school funk, soul, rhythm and blues. It’ll also fit the bill for current indy and pop where organic production qualities are desired.

Monotown features

  • Multi-sampling: each key contains up to 8 velocity layers for expressive detail and dynamics. Hihats are extensively sampled for convincing realism with 9 articulations (tip, tight, closed, loose, looser, semi-open, open, pedaled, footsplash).
  • Mic layers: 5x individually controllable microphone perspectives: Coles 4038 front-of-kit; Coles 4038 over kit; RCA 44 over kit, RE20 underside, and Neumann U67 room.
  • Round-robin: natural performance is possible thanks to 6 round-robin hits for each dynamic layer on every instrument.
  • Layouts: Keyboard and eKit/V-Drum mapping layouts provided. The keyboard layout is General MIDI (GM) compatible.
  • Output routing: mono and multi-channel output versions provided.
  • Kontakt instrument interface: with volume and mic controls.
  • Instrument swap: instantly change the snare drum and tambourine sounds at the press of a button.
  • 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 changing sounds.
  • Trigger maps: for sound replacement.
Analogue Drums Gorilla

Inspired by the likes of Phil Collins and other pioneers of the gated room sound, we present Gorilla – a classic Gretsch rock kit, with an authentic gated room feature that creates a vibe like no other. Complete with concert toms and Sabian cymbals, this kit will lay down a solid and distinctive foundation for any track.

Gorilla features

  • Multi-sampling: each key contains up to 8 velocity layers for expressive detail. Hihats are extensively sampled for convincing realism with 7 articulations (tip, tight, closed, loose, semi-open, open, pedaled).
  • Round-robin: each and every hit has 6 unique round-robin samples to avoid the mechanical machine-gun effect.
  • Mic layers: 4x separately controllable microphone perspectives: close mics, snare bottom, overheads and room mics.
  • Layouts: Keyboard and eKit/V-Drum mapping layouts provided. The keyboard layout is General MIDI (GM) compatible.
  • Output routing: stereo and multi-channel output versions provided.
  • Kontakt instrument interface: with volume, pan, and mic mix controls, instant snare-swapping button.
  • Gated room control: switch room gate to various degrees or leave ungated.
  • Sensitivity control: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for rock and heavier tracks.
  • Presets: for quickly changing sounds.
  • Trigger maps: for sound replacement.

Analogue Drums releases Buckshot sample library

Analogue Drums Buckshot

Analogue Drums has released Buckshot, a drumkit sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt and EXS24.

The Buck stops here. A modern take on a vintage kit with plenty of punch to cut through and enough tone to sit right in a rock track.

The kit is a vintage 1970s Gretsch Stop-Sign Maple with Zildjian and Sabian cymbals. The kit was tracked in a big old wooden theatre and dialing in the room sound can go from tight to espansive. As usual we’ve used nothing but the finest gear to capture the kit including classic Neumann mics, vintage Neve 1064 preamps. The tracks were then processed through vintage DBX 160 “VU” compressors for added grit and girth.

Buckshot features

  • Multi-sampling: each key contains 24 velocity layers for expressive detail. Hihats are extensively sampled for convincing realism with 6 articulations (tight, closed, loose, semi-open, open, pedaled).
  • Mic layers: 3x separately controllable layers for close mics, overheads and room mics.
  • Layouts: General MIDI (GM) and Extended Mapping (EX) layouts provided.
  • Kontakt instrument interface*: with volume and pan controls for individual drums and room mics. Instant snare-swapping button.
  • Sensitivity control*: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for rock and heavier tracks.
  • Presets*: for quickly changing sounds.

Buckshot is available to purchase for $24.95 USD.

Analogue Drums releases Grandioso for Kontakt and EXS24

Analogue Drums Grandioso

Analogue Drums has released Grandioso, a drum sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Logic EXS24.

Grandioso is about as big as it gets. Turn up the room mic, hit it hard and it will deliver explosive beats with resounding impact. Or back off the room mic and use more moderate dynamics for smooth, subtle and detailed grooves.

The kit is a vintage 1970s Ludwig Vistalite with the toms tuned low for growl, the kick unported for added weight, and two vintage Ludwig Supraphonic snares in medium and high tunings. Accompanied with classic Paiste 2002 cymbals.

Grandioso features

  • Multi-sampling: each key contains 24 velocity layers for expressive detail. Hihats are extensively sampled for convincing realism with 6 articulations (tight, closed, loose, semi-open, open, pedaled).
  • Layers: separately controllable layers for close and room mics.
  • Layouts: General MIDI (GM) and Extended Mapping (EX) layouts provided.
  • Kontakt instrument interface*: with volume and pan controls for individual drums and room mics. Instant snare-swapping button.
  • Sensitivity control*: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for rock and heavier tracks.
  • Presets*: for quickly changing sounds.

Grandioso is available to purchase for $24.95 USD.

Analogue Drums releases Splitsticks

Analogue Drums Splitsticks

Analogue Drums has released Splitsticks, a drum sample library featuring a Slingerland drumkit.

Sticks and stones may break your bones but Splitsticks won’t. Played with HotRod™ sticks, it’s the same tasty Slingerland 4-piece ’60s kit that we used for Popsticks, but with a more laid-back sound – somewhere between the sound of brushes and regular sticks.

Reduced velocity sampling means it uses less system resources than Popsticks. Close mic and room mic options give plenty of scope for mixing things up. Tracked through a ’74 Neve desk, and as always onto a nice thick roll of tape.

Splitsticks features

  • Slingerland 4-piece ’60s kit, recorded through a 1974 EMI Neve desk at York St Studio. Recorded in stereo, directly to tape. Converted using Apogee Rosetta converters.
  • 308 discrete wav samples, quick-reference card (PDF), sampler mapping files.
  • Sample format: 24bit, 44.1khz, Stereo, Wav format.
  • Compatability: Native Instruments Battery 3, Native Instruments Kontakt 2 & 3 and EXS24 / Logic.

Splitsticks is available for purchase for $14.95 USD.

Analogue Drums has released three new drum samples libraries in its Analogue Drums Series I: Big Mono, Rockstock, and Popsticks.

Analogue Drums began in 2002, producing drum samples from tape. For a long time we’ve kept our samples closely guarded and used them as a ‘secret weapon’ to augment or completely replace drums sounds. Now we’re making our sample library available for sale.

Analogue Drums Series I

Tracked through a ’75 Neve desk, and as always onto a nice thick roll of tape.
