Drumasonic has announced the release of Drumasonic Luxury, a high-end drum sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt, featuring natural and punchy drum sounds.
All kits can be played with sticks, rods or brushes, either with or without snare wires. Up to 10 microphone signals provide unrivaled mixing flexibility and, thanks to the integrated groove player, realistic sounding drum tracks can be created in no time at all.
The sample content, comprising over 30,000 samples, was recorded with minute attention to detail and covers a large variety of musical styles. LUXURY is based on the advanced drumasonic 2.1 engine and, being a “Powerd by Kontakt” library, utilizes the strengths of the latest NI Kontakt version 5.
