The Real Snare Drum is the first in a new line of multisampled drums which offer intuitive and playable mappings that match the profile of the instrument, realistic microphone combinations with intuitive controls, and a consistent ‘dead room’ recording methodology.
Real Snare Drum features

- Mapped in an innovative and playable configuration in the sfz format.
- The drum is sampled in 4 zones: center, 3 inch radius, 6 inch radius, and rim shot.
- Each zone has separate left and right hand samples mapped in an obvious and intuitive way.
- Round robin and velocity switching within each zone.
- Each microphone has its own virtual channel, controlled by its own assigned midi CC#.
