NI Kontakt Buffalo Drum:
- Each loop is offered in 3 tempos - 1x tempo, 2x tempo and 3x tempo. These tempos can be layered against each other and very easily turned on and off via keyswitches in any combination, with independent control for each tempos volume, panning, tuning, filtering, delay and EQ. This makes it possible to emulate anything from thundering low drums to high shaker type effects.
- A drop down menu lets you choose the trigger point for each loop to ensure that your loops always play back in sync to each other.
- A multi-sampled 590 MB Hits instrument is included featuring an intuitive mirrored mapping scheme.
- An elegant Kontakt user interface/script authored by Bo Clausen.
