Chokehold Black Noh Snare

Chokehold has released Black Noh Snare, a virtual snare drum instrument for Windows and Mac.

The original is played by a long-haired dude wearing a Noh mask (hence the name) in one of the most controversial bands of all time. I could have called this the “Maggot Snare” or something sic, but I think that blister already exists.

My drummer played his signature model, and I recorded these samples somewhere along the way in 2011 but never came around to actually doing anything with them. Until now.

Black Noh Snare features

  • Sampled snare drum with 9 velocity layers, every velocity layer has 8 random-robin samples.
  • “+punch” Module to add *thump* to the sound.
  • Includes rim-shots.
  • Mapped on MIDI notes D1/38.
  • “Silk” for controlling the attack phase of the snare, for each microphone independently.
  • Un-/mute individual top or bottom microphones.

The Black Noh Snare is a free download at Chokehold.
