Drums On Demand introduces new line of Drum Sample Kits

Drums On Demand has announced the release of seven new drum sample kits formatted for Logic, Reason, Kontakt, Pro Tools and GarageBand.

Drums On Demand Drum Sample Kits

Spanning genres from jazz to heavy metal, musicians will have access to drum kits created in the same sessions as the company’s best-selling audio loop volumes.

From jazz to country to heavy metal, seven new sample drum kits offer even greater variety to users searching for smooth, usable and high quality sounds.

Each kit features multi-velocity layers on each drum element and as many as nine different snares. The 24-bit/44.1 kHz hits were recorded in the same sessions and on the same drums as the company’s best-selling audio loop volumes.

Drums were laid out very close to the General MIDI map for ease of auditioning and use. Some liberties were taken for the left-right snare hits on all kits (for round-robin), and for some value-added hats, sustains and rolls in the lower and upper registers on many kits.

“We are excited that users can now have our Drums On Demand sounds with the flexibility of MIDI,” says company President Quint Randle. “This exponentially expands the DOD experience.”

Not designed or priced to compete with the overly technical virtual drum programs, the kits were designed with price and flexibility in mind. As little as $9.95 each, the download includes all five formats for those who work across several software platforms.

One noteworthy example is the jazz-latin kit, which uses a vintage ’60s Gretsch kit with 10 velocities left and right snare hits on a limited-edition, 75th anniversary Noble & Cooley snare (only 100 made). The virtual instrument includes a stick kit, closed snare kit and a brush kit. The pack is rounded out with bongo, conga, djembe hits and rolls, cymbal sus’, as well as snare buzzes and rolls.

Other kits in the new line — each with their own unique features — include: funk/soul, solid rock, crossover brushes, metal, country and a basic Drums On Demand® workhorse kit.

If a musician doesn’t program/play drums on the keyboard, Drums On Demand® has also partnered with Groove Monkee to offer 11 volumes of premium MIDI drum loops: rock, jazz, metal, funk and more. These volumes include General MIDI mapped loops for use with the DOD kits, plus mappings for other popular software like Addictive Drums, BFD, EZdrummer, Live Session Drums, Session Drummer, Steven Slate & more. These have been discounted to $19.95 each during the launch of the new drum kits.

Soundiron announces Mars – Epic Male Choir pre-order

Soundiron Mars Epic Male Choir

Soundiron has announced that its Mars – Epic Male Choir sample library for Kontakt is now available to pre-order.

We’re pleased to formally announce our soon-to-be-released Mars Epic Male Slavonic & Latin Choir library. Mars features a full 30-voice male chorus as well as 3 soloists singing in both Slavonic (Russian Orthodox liturgical) and Latin. A wide variety of content is included for both languages, as well as a collection of choral effects (powerful shouts, sweeps, clusters, etc.).

We’ve included 2 masterfully mixed composite microphone positions (close/stage and far/hall), carefully blended from an array of 10 large diaphragm Neumann Microphones, arrayed in wide stereo pairs, ranging in distance from 1 meter to 25 meters. The two-composite position configuration allows the best balance between placement, flexibility and performance, while providing a truly massive, robust and full-bodied sound. With Mars, we are aiming for versatility. Instead of focusing on one language, we chose to go with a wide range of both Slavonic and Latin content so composers can add more flavor to their tracks. We spent 10 days in our favorite church recording an ensemble chorus from the San Francisco Choral Society, conducted by the esteemed meastro Robert Geary, capturing the nuances of the male human voice.

Mars – Epic Male Choir features

  • Well over 12,000 samples, over 15 GB content.
  • 24 bit / 48kHz stereo PCM wav format.
  • Open format to allow user customization.
  • Format(s): Kontakt 4 .nki and pcm .wav.
