Heavyocity Media has announced the release of Master Sessions: Ensemble Drums - the first product in a new line of virtual instruments. Created by the New York City sound design team, the Master Sessions virtual instrument line focuses on specific instruments and ensembles for professional composers.
As the newest addition to Heavyocity's virtual instrument line, Master Sessions: Ensemble Drums answers the call of pro-composers looking for massive ensemble drum kits and hybrid looped percussion.
The Heavyocity team carefully sought out a unique collection of massive drums that were performed in ensemble fashion, producing "some of the most earth-shattering low end ever captured". The performances were then mixed and mastered to deliver maximum impact, all in an easy-to-use interface.
Heavyocity's Master Sessions: Ensemble Drums Collection contains 7 unique ensembles in 30+ presets and 300+ tempo-synced loops organized into straight and triplet grooves. The loops are provided in menu and single loop presets, allowing users to easily mix and match stems seamlessly to create complex percussion beds.
Master Sessions: Ensemble Drums is offered as three separate products:
- Ensemble Drums - Kits
- Ensemble Drums - Loops
- Ensemble Drums Collection
Bundle containing both Kits and Loops
The included content is complemented by Heavyocity's custom user interface featuring the Stage (Kits and Collection only), advanced Trigger FX and the signature Punish knob. With Loop Mutator technology (Loops and Collection only) users can sequence, re-compose, and manipulate loops.
