The latest addition to the critically acclaimed NI SOUNDLINE range is loaded with 36 extraordinary drum kits that offer unique and inspiring material for all contemporary and upcoming styles of electronic music - including various flavours of techno and house, hiphop, R&B, ambient, two-step, drum&bass, tech funk, IDM, breakbeat, electro, industrial, electronica, big beat, downbeat, experimental and avantgarde. Contributors to SYNTHETIC DRUMS 2 include Atom Heart, Chris Liebing, Funkstörung, Junkie XL, Lusine, Plaid, Richard Devine, Speedy J, Sutekh, Telefon Tel Aviv and many others, with every artist bringing his unique sonic signature to the project. The more than 2.000 samples in SYNTHETIC DRUMS 2 have been generated and processed by using and abusing a wide range of analog and digital synthesizers, drum machines, effects and other, more outlandish devices. The result is what is very likely the most imaginative and diverse electronic drum and percussion library available. All drum kits in SYNTHETIC DRUMS 2 exist in BATTERY 2 and KONTAKT formats, and make extensive use of the advanced sound shaping, mapping and modulation features of both samplers. For each kit an exemplary MIDI file as well as an MP3 file is provided, giving a quick and comprehensive overview about the sonic potential of the library content. More info:
