News Native Instruments Studio Drummer

Virtual Drum/Percussion from Native Instruments

Public price: $169 incl. VAT

Native Instruments announced Studio Drummer, a new instrument for the creation of acoustic drum tracks.

For use with the Kontakt version and the free Kontakt Player, Studio Drummer makes use of the advanced features of Kontakt 5. At the heart of the instrument are three drum kits from Pearl, Sonor and Yamaha that have been sampled in the Teldex Studios in Berlin, using up to 18 microphones. The resulting 17 GB of sample material incorporate up to 25 velocity layers with up to 6 variation samples for individual instruments, and contain over a dozen distinct articulations for snare and hi-hats as well as an alternative snare option for each kit.

 

The array of individual drum sounds is complemented by its groove library, which includes 3,500 rhythm patterns organized by 11 specific music styles. All patterns including fills and variations were recorded and converted into MIDI files for usage in the Kontakt engine. All grooves can be adjusted for swing and tightness, and can be transferred into a host sequencer via Drag&Drop for detailed editing and arrangement. In order to play the individual instruments in Studio Drummer directly, the software also offers a practical assortment of MIDI templates for various electronic drum sets and third-party drum software, combined with custom mapping functions.

 

The cmixer section of Studio Drummer gives control over relevant aspects of the sound, allowing users to  tailor each drum kit to the individual musical context. Microphone settings with adjustable snare bleed, auxiliary mics and specific room and overhead controls can be either set by hand, or through the mix presets per drum kit designed to each represent a distinctive sound asthetic. Studio Drummer utilizes the classic EQ and compressor models derived from the new Solid Mix Series as well as the integrated Transient Master and Tape Saturator algorithms.

 

Pricing & Availability:

Studio Drummer will be available in September 2011 for $169 / 149 EUR, and will also be included in the new Komplete 8 and Komplete 8 Ultimate bundles.
