Modwheel releases HUMDRUM for Kontakt


Modwheel has announced the release of HUMDRUM, an authentic Calfskin Drum Set for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Modwheel Humdrum

This is the first release in their new “Creative Differences” series. It’s a percussion instrument library that focuses on quality, organic percussion sounds.

“We wanted a high quality authentic Bass Drum that we could customize in terms of room and reverb levels so we designed our own, ” said David Donaldson of MODWHEEL. “It was so successful we decided to record a whole set.”

“There are so many great drum libraries out there but sometimes you want the option of a more intimate mix. Being able to actively control the level of the room mic sound using the mod wheel allows so much flexibility for the composer.”

HUMDRUM features

  • 2 double-skinned Marching Bass Drums.
  • 2 Snare Drums.
  • Toms large, medium and small.
  • Performances (mallets & sticks) hits, flams, ruffs, stick across, rimshots and rolls.
  • Up to 9 round robins with 6 velocity levels.
  • Over 3200 samples recorded at 96 kHz.
  • Control the room mic level using the mod wheel.
  • Separate fully adjustable reverbs for the close and room mic sound.
  • Tempo of flams and ruffs easily controlled by a speed knob.

The HUMDRUM library is available for purchase for the introductory price of $35 USD for a limited time (regular $55 USD). Requires full version of Kontakt 5.3 or higher.
