DNR Collaborative has announced the release of Organic Compounds, a multi-format acoustic drum package with high-quality sample recording and with unobtrusive drum and player noises, scrapes and scratches left in to make it a very unique product with an authentic feel. Close attention has been paid to each samples’ start and end points, making sure each hit starts and ends on zero-crossing to avoid all pops and clicks, as well as providing a wide array of playing styles not usually covered by traditional drum sample libraries. The original, non-normalized samples are included in this package, and yes, there is a cowbell.
The samples included in Organic Compounds have been recorded through a combination of AKG C414 B-XLS II and Rode NT-55 microphones. No compression, limiting, equalizing or other external processing devices have been used on the original recordings – just pure drum sounds.
The first kit is a Tama Rockstar 4-Piece drumkit with star cast mounting system. Other individual kit pieces are listed below. Each update will include new kits, new recording techniques and playing styles and different striking types.
- Gretch Catalina Club Snare.
