Drumdrops launches 1970s Slingerland Classic Rock Kit

Drumdrops has announced the release of 1970s Slingerland Classic Rock Kit, a multi-format drum kit sample library mixed by Alan Moulder.

Drumdrops 1970s Classic Rock Kit

This 1970s Slingerland Classic Rock Kit is a truly spectacular kit. A deep sounding kick drum, five toms and a classic Slingerland Radio King 14″ x 7″ snare drum, makes this kit a great choice for anyone who wants to re-enact their 70s rock classics. However it is not a one-trick pony as often shown by the engineers and producers who use it on their records while working at the Pool studio in London where it resides. To get the best out of this kit we enlisted the help of one of the leading alternative rock mix engineers in the world – Alan Moulder.

Alan Moulder needs no introduction. Voted UK Producer of the year in 2014 for the BRIT awards and Music Producers Guild Awards, Alan is one of the UK’s most sonically innovative Alternative Rock Producer/Mixers. Working prolifically in the UK and USA, Alan has been at the helm of some of rock music’s most iconic records and his credits include Nine Inch Nails, The Killers, The Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, My Bloody Valentine, Them Crooked Vultures, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Arctic Monkeys, Led Zeppelin, Death Cab For Cutie, Foals and Royal Blood to name but a few.

The kit comprises a 24″ x 14″ Kick drum, 12″, 13″, 14″ & 15″ Rack Toms and an 18″ Floor Tom. The snare used was a 14″ x 7″ Slingerland Radio King snare. Cymbals used Zildjian 14″ New Beat hi-hats, a 21″ Zildjian Custom K Ride, a Zildjian K Dark Medium Thin 18″ Crash and a Zildjian Vintage Cie 16″ Crash.

The 1970s Slingerland Classic Rock Kit packs are available for purchase at 20% off for a limited time, using voucher code slingerland20 at checkout. Any customers who previously purchased the Vintage 60s Gretsch Round Badge Soul Kit (any pack except the one shot sample pack) will have a free one shot sample pack of the Slingerland added to their account.

A Kontakt 5 pack and a BFD pack which are scheduled for release soon.

Facets of Sounds releases LOVELY-drumkit for Kontakt

Facets of Sounds

Facets of Sounds has announced LOVELY-drumkit, a drum library with a natural vintage sound for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Well, this drumkit sounds so lovely. That’s the reason why I called this drumlibrary “LOVELY-drumkit”.

This drumkit has got 20x RR (alternative samples) on each velocitylayer on basedrum, snare, high hat (close/ open) and on three toms; 12x RR on two crashes and two rides. I recorded a Sonor-kit in our music hall.

It’s not a smasher! The “LOVELY-drumkit” sounds so natural, vintage-like, subtle, imperfect and it got a humanized touch that I missed in a lot of (expensive) drumlibraries out there.

The drum library is available as donationware.

Plugin Alliance has announced it is offering a discount on drumatom, a microphone leakage suppression tool for multichannel drum recordings.

Using advanced signal analysis and processing, drumatom is so advanced it can determine the difference between a snare hit and a hi-hat hit, allowing you to reduce the level of the hi-hat from the snare track while preserving the snare sound, even if both snare and hi-hat were struck at the same time!

Drumatom is available from Plugin Alliance for $149 USD until January 31st, 2015 (regular $399 USD). Use coupon code potm2015-01 at checkout on the promotions page.
