Voxengo announced the launch of a new sampling product line which extends the product offer of Voxengo brand beyond pro audio plug-in software.
Voxengo AcuDrums is a sound sample library designed to capture acoustical sound of various drum and cymbal instruments.
The main idea behind AcuDrums library is to capture a contemporary drum kit sound. The library as a whole contains 8000 WAV files
and takes over 6 GB of disk space.
Instruments of this library have multiple velocity layers with each velocity layer having 5 sample variations designed to reduce the
“machine gun” effect.
The microphone placement that was used for sample recording reproduces a 3-dimensional sound stage. Instruments of the library
when combined together as a kit are said to have a good spatial separation and placement: they will sound like they were placed on
a sound stage, not like they are coming from the same position in space, the company says.
AcuDrums library features:
- Up to 16 velocity layers per instrument
- 5 sample variations per velocity layer
- Several stick and beater types
- Several zones per instrument
- Prolonged decay
- Hundreds of samples per instrument
- 44100 Hz 16-bit stereo samples
- Stored in plain WAV sample files
Compatibility: Samples and instrument files of this library are compatible with Native Instruments Kontakt 3.5 and 4 (Kontakt Player
is supported in demo mode only) and Cakewalk Session Drummer 2 and 3.
NKI and SFZ instrument files of this library can be additionally loaded in various compatible samplers. Individual WAV files can be
loaded in most samplers.

Samples of individual instruments can be purchased separately or in custom bundles (a discount may apply), with the prices currently
ranging from USD 12.95 to USD 19.95 per instrument.
