[NAMM] Mapex Black Panther Blaster
Mapex opens the new year with a new drum set class based off the Black Panther Snare Drum series.
Beginning with the Blaster drum kit in 2011, the Black Panther suite will "continue the (...) heritage of the Orion series."
The Blaster kit will feature thin maple shells (5.1mm toms and 7.2mm bass) with walnut sound-shaping rings (3.4mm) designed to give drummers a full bodied sound, very direct and powerful. Each drum will be accented with brushed black chrome hardware and Remo Renaissance Ambassador heads.
The Blaster series will be available on a very limited basis for a very limited time, beginning January 2011. The second half of 2011 will feature the second release in the series, the Velvetone, with more models slated for release in 2012 and beyond.

- How to Get the Most Out of Multitrack Drum Libraries More drum libraries are showing up in multitrack format from companies like Discrete Drums, Wizoo, East-West, Reel Drums, etc. Although these are sold on the basis of being useable out of the box for drum parts (with the additional advantage of being mixable), I see them more as a gold mine of raw materials for creating custom drum loops.
