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.
