Wave Alchemy has launched SYS-100 Drums, a new drum library that is based on the iconic Roland System 100 modular synth, from the creators of the Evolution and Revolution drum machines.
The library features 1,584 24-bit WAV, raw and processed (vinyl, tape, outboard) samples for Ableton Live, Battery, Halion, Kontakt, NN-XT, SFZ, and Logic EXS-24.
SYS-100 Drums is a brand new drum library from Wave Alchemy featuring a vast collection of unique samples, pristinely recorded from the iconic Japanese semi-modular synth. Each of the 1,584 sounds was created by compositing up to 14 individually synthesized layers and then processing these through an incredible range of outboard gear to result in samples that mesh perfectly into specific bands within every drum sound.
For maximum flexibility the unprocessed source samples are also included as they were originally recorded and composited – free from additional processing, giving you a more malleable sound. A third section includes all samples bounced through ¼ inch analogue tape, and a fourth section includes all samples recorded to 12-inch vinyl, recorded via a classic Neumann VMS 70 vinyl mastering lathe. Finally a fifth folder presents the samples across 38 kits for Halion, Battery, Kontakt, NN-XT, SFZ and Logic EXS-24.
A feature-rich, custom built Ableton Live Pack (for Live 9 and above) is also included with deep Push integration, enabling you to manipulate and modulate the sounds within Live’s Drum Rack environment.
Dan Byers from Wave Alchemy says:
“Our goal with SYS-100 Drums was to design and create a completely new, original collection of drum sounds that sparks creativity and, in true Wave Alchemy style, punches hard and sounds full of character.”
SYS-100 Drums is available for £32.95 GBP. A demo pack of 40 samples is available as a free download.
