DRM Drums serves up over 380 drum samples from a classic Vermona DRM drum machine. All samples have been lovingly recorded via an API pre-amp with each sound boasting eight spherical robin variations and 4 accent (velocity) layers!
Unique classic DRM drum machines are fairly arduous to come back by; they had been initially manufactured by Vermona in 1986 and seem like influenced by the long-lasting 606 and 808 drum machines. Though DRM is an abbreviation for ‘Digital Rhythm Machine’, the sound technology is in actual fact absolutely analogue! 12 analogue drum voices can be found: kick drum, three toms, 2 snares, 2 hi-hats, claves, cowbell, cymbal and a really fascinating sounding analogue clap…
DRM Drums accommodates totally pre-mapped drum package patches to be used with Kontakt 5 and Battery three. Every equipment makes in depth use of a number of velocity layers, spherical robin pattern playback and choke teams to create a really expressive pattern instrument.
All 384 drum samples are included as uncooked 24-bit wav recordsdata, fastidiously trimmed and labelled, making it simple for many who need to construct their very own drum kits.
The Drum Package
- Fastidiously thought-out Battery three and Kontakt 5 kits embody 384 Vermona DRM drum samples which have been recorded clear by way of an API 512c pre-amp. The package has been recorded in 44.1K, 24-bit and consists of eight spherical robin samples per sound in addition to four accent / velocity layers per hit!
Because of the DRM’s analogue nature, refined variations in tone are heard within the sound every time a drum is triggered. Which means that no two hits coming from the DRM will sound precisely the identical, which in flip makes the general sound lots much less static and as an alternative, extra vibrant and actual. Due to this we felt it essential to file eight ‘spherical robin’ samples and four accent / velocity layers per sound – to assist seize the ‘motion’ created by random analogue conduct!
