The ultimate acoustic kit library?
Larry Seyers Drum Library
How the library was designed:
Each type of drum, with its respective positional 'Zones' (see picture below) and alternate striking methods, was assigned a unique region on the keyboard. For instance, a snare drum's strikes are mapped from E2 to E3 which correspond to the various physical positions at which Pat struck his actual snare drums.
Similar to the snare mapping described above, all of Pat's drums except for crash, bell, and splash cymbals were sampled with positional information which is preserved in the final instrument design. In addition to positional 'Zones', there are 16 velocities and various striker choices. The sound samples taken from each drum are mapped according to these layout regions and stored in their own individual .GIG file.
The raw instruments (drums and cymbals) living inside of their respective .GIG files are combined using the "virtual stacking" feature of GigaStudio 3.0 to create custom drum kits (saved as .GSI files) whose individual drum components (kicks, snares, toms etc) are interchangeable. By creating drum kits using the new .GSI file format rather than the more common and traditional .GIG file, the user is able to mix and match drum sounds to create custom drum kits in a non-destructive manner. Each of the drum components within a drum kit can be tuned, panned, mixed, and routed separately from the other drum components.
