Organic Drum Loops has released a free drum rompler instrument for Windows and Mac.
Available as a VST3 plugin, the Organic Calfskin Kit is a comprehensive and easy-to-use solution to working with multi-track/multi-velocity samples.
Featuring samples by Bill Mead, the instrument comes with a moderately dry sounding setup that offers good punch for modern music styles and minimal sustain for easy mixing.
Since the sound of a drumkit is greatly influenced by the tools that are used to play it, this kit was sampled using three common options, sticks, brushes and mallets – so of course, the OCK includes these options within the plugin settings.
Just as a live drummer would choose a tool based on the song, users of this plugin are given the same options for greater flexibility within their production.
Organic Calfskin Kit features
- 3 layer multi-velocity samples.
- 5 mic layout gain and pan settings as well as outputs for routing to aux tracks for more control.
- Hi-hat openings by BPM.
- Cymbal choking.
- Global settings for gain, pitch bend, velocity curve, weirdness (LFO filter) amount, speed and shape.
- Panic button.
The plugin is a free download to registered users (registration also free).
