Puremagnetik has released TrapKit for Live 8, Kontakt and Logic.
TrapKit is a vintage 1960s Ludwig drum set recorded in a large reflective room with a vast array of microphones. This sample set includes the original Ludwig Kick Drum, Rack and Floor Toms along with a well-matched Snare drum, Zildjian Hi-Hats, Sabian Crash Cymbal and hand-hammered Zildjian Ride Cymbal.
All drums and cymbals were recorded with various articulations using both close mics and overhead mics. Multi-channel mixing, and non-repetitive sample triggering make TrapKit an extremely realistic and thoroughly musical sample set, according to Puremagnetik.

- 1965 Ludwig Kick 20" x 14".
- 1965 Ludwig Rack Tom 8" x 12".
- 1965 Ludwig Floor Tom 14" x 14".
