Zildjian Gen16 Digital Vault
Gen16, a new division of the cymbal manufacturer The Avedis Zildjian Company, has announced the availability of their new Digital Vault series.
The first in a series of products billed as “Intelligent Percussion by Zildjian,” the Digital Vault is designed to offer "authentic, high-resolution acoustic samples of the company’s master “reference” cymbals, along with limited-edition cymbals never available to the public.
Powering the Gen16 Digital Vaults is a custom version of FXpansion’s BFD Eco, a drum playback/production environment based on the BFD2 technology. The BFD Eco engine is designed to allow users to change pitch, mix or add effects to these Zildjian samples to create more sounds.
Also included in the Digital Vault are libraries of drum and percussion groove tracks from some of the industry’s drummers, including Michael White, Dave DiCenso and Peter Michael Escovedo. Each performance is available in various audio and General MIDI formats for maximum flexibility.
Current Digital Vault products include the Z-Pack, a selection of A-Series and A-Custom Crashes, Rides and HiHats; the S-Pack Volume 1, offering K-Series Crashes, Rides, HiHats and Prototypes; and the S-Pack Volume 2, offering Gong Sheets, Chinas, Rides, HiHats and Trashformers.
