Wavesfactory has announced the release of its latest drum collection sample library for Kontakt, including updated versions of three of its best-selling libraries.

Legacy Drums features Tea Towel Drums, Classic Rock Drums and Brush Drums, with a new and powerful script that lets you control any parameter you can possibly need.

Wavesfactory Legacy Drums - Tea Towel Drums

We wanted to release these libraries in a new and improved form, retaining the sound they’re famous for and introducing new GUIs and premium features in order to make them even better. We think that this is a unique drum collection that will inspire you.

Tea Towel features a vintage Ludwig drum kit with tea towels placed on snare and tom heads in order to damp the resonance. This technique was widely used by The Beatles in their late recordings (see Abbey Road) and it’s been the trademark sound of that golden era.

Classic Rock features a Ludwig Vistalite drum kit inspired by the 70s rock bands. This is the kit used live by Led Zeppelin. It sounds open, deep and powerful, perfect to be used in rock tracks.

Brush features a standard Yamaha drum kit played with brushes. This type of mallet is often used in jazz or blues music, but also in other genres such as rock, country and pop.

Legacy Drums comes with a total of 77 presets with a wide variety of styles, including sound design.

Legacy Drums for Kontakt 5.5.2 or higher (full version) costs 59 EUR.
