‘Tasteful EQ and compression, enhanced by the natural ambiance of several different recording rooms, allow users a complete and ready-to-go collection of acoustic drums and cymbals. Drums are sampled at multiple tunings as well as multiple variations of stick attacks. Extra attention is given to the snare sample packs, with multiple strike velocities and voices (cross sticks, snares off, etc.). The multi-sampling of each cymbal voice is likewise extensive. Cymbals are sampled with multiple stick hits, but also offer cymbal chokes, rolls, and other samples not commonly found but vital to realistic drum tracks.
