Noisefirm releases DigiTape Hybrid Drums for Kontakt

Noisefirm DigiTape Hybird Drums

Noisefirm has released DigiTape Hybrid Drums, a library of drum sounds for Kontakt that combines the best advantages of digital and analog audio technology.

All of the library’s sounds were sculpted from digital oscillators and noise generators, and then processed and transformed with DSP. The samples were then printed through an analog tape recorder at variable levels of saturation to achieve an optimum level of harmonic distortion.

The end result is an unique library of kicks, snares, percussion and other textures that combine the creative flexibility of digital synthesis and DSP with the warmth of analog tape.

DigiTape Hybrid Drums features

  • Over 300 samples of hybrid digital/analog drums, effects, and textures in 24-bit 48kHz Wavs.
  • Kontakt instrument (full retail version 4.2 or later) with custom scripting and GUI.
  • Uncompressed disk space needed: 150 MB.
  • 11 Included Kontakt patches for convenient ready-to-use drum layouts.
  • Custom interface includes:
    • Low Pass Filter with resonance and cutoff controls.
    • Variable BitCrusher with bitrate and sample rate controls.
    • Reverb with room size and level controls.
  • Sculpted with digital noise generators and oscillators.
  • Samples printed through 1/4″ Studer analog tape recorder at various levels of saturation.
  • Plug-n-Play samples are ready to drop into your sampler/drum machine of choice.

The library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $19 USD.
