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 Tape Series Two Bundle

Both Kontakt libraries are available to purchase for $39 USD each.

Analogue Drums has also announced the Tape Series Two Bundle, a collection of all four kits from the Tape Series Two:

  • Kingpin – Vintage Gretsch with Bosphorus cymbals
  • Plastique – Ludwig Vistalite with Paiste 2002 cymbals
  • Monotown – Vintage Rogers Big-R with vintage Zildjian & Paiste cymbals
  • Gorilla – Vintage Gretsch concert-tom with Sabian cymbals
