Analogue Drums releases Buckshot sample library

Analogue Drums Buckshot

Analogue Drums has released Buckshot, a drumkit sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt and EXS24.

The Buck stops here. A modern take on a vintage kit with plenty of punch to cut through and enough tone to sit right in a rock track.

The kit is a vintage 1970s Gretsch Stop-Sign Maple with Zildjian and Sabian cymbals. The kit was tracked in a big old wooden theatre and dialing in the room sound can go from tight to espansive. As usual we’ve used nothing but the finest gear to capture the kit including classic Neumann mics, vintage Neve 1064 preamps. The tracks were then processed through vintage DBX 160 “VU” compressors for added grit and girth.

Buckshot features

  • Multi-sampling: each key contains 24 velocity layers for expressive detail. Hihats are extensively sampled for convincing realism with 6 articulations (tight, closed, loose, semi-open, open, pedaled).
  • Mic layers: 3x separately controllable layers for close mics, overheads and room mics.
  • Layouts: General MIDI (GM) and Extended Mapping (EX) layouts provided.
  • Kontakt instrument interface*: with volume and pan controls for individual drums and room mics. Instant snare-swapping button.
  • Sensitivity control*: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for rock and heavier tracks.
  • Presets*: for quickly changing sounds.

Buckshot is available to purchase for $24.95 USD.

reason lahalla releases Metal and Motion sample pack

reason lahalla

reason lahalla has released Metal and Motion, a package of sounds which consists mainly of original recordings and derivative textures created from recording a Zildjian Constantinople crash, a Zildjian Avedis ping ride and a Zildjian Z Custom 18″ crash cymbal through various means.

Most of the long drawn out textures were created by using different density/thickness drum sticks and “ghosting”
them lightly across the grooves until the wood catches the harmonics correctly. Other rumbling metal sounds were created through felt mallets being drawn across the cymbals at higher microphone gain stages.

Also included is a package of dual machete samples. These were recorded by using 2 separate machetes to tap, slide, slice and bend in order to get accurate ‘sword fighting’ type of sounds. You will also find other metals, such as aluminum braces and rods included in the package as well.

Metal and Motion features

  • 110 Samples / 250 MB.
  • Recorded @ 24-bit / 48khz.
  • Originals recordings included.
  • Folder Layout Includes: Aluminum Taps, Brace Taps, Cymbal Scrapes, Machete Hits, Metal Fades, Metal Textures.

Metal and Motion is available in 2 licenses – one for composers ($10 USD) and one for developers ($20 USD). The difference between licenses is that the composer’s license can be used in any musical composition with no royalties or other fees. You cannot create commercial sound libraries from these sources with the composer’s license. The developer’s license allows you to use these samples to create commercial sound libraries without requiring my permission to do so. Go ahead, make something useful and creative (and commercial) out of them.
