Ballistic Drum Kits provides a large collection of mostly Bread and Butter Drum Kits all of which can be easily interchanged for quickly transforming a playing drum pattern. They are quite heavy kits which are especially well suited to Hip Hop, Trip Hop & RnB, all the collection is diverse enough to be useful to any Sampletank user. There aren't that many Electronic Drum Kits available for Sampletank, and so this Tank attempts to bridge the gap, at least another 2 complimentary collections will be released which will provide more drum kits, instrument kits designed for layering, and percussion kits.
Each Kit is made up of 24 samples and as well as the standard tuning, has a -5 Semitone version and a +1 Octave version within the same instrument. The layout also follows the General MIDI Layout for the 1st Octave, although the second octave can vary with the intention of swapping kits and getting a few nice surprises such as a chord or a bass note, which can suddenly transform a standard drum loop into an interesting Hip Hop Beat.
Each Kit has 4 variations:
- Tight which adds an envelope so that Decay can be altered easily to get the desired sample length. This method is also used for the other child presets.
- Upfront which uses the Tone module to provide solid presence to the kit. This is also carried through to the following 2 preset types.
- Delay adds a delay to the kit.
- Verby adds a reverb to the kit which is usually kept subtle so that it can still sit in the mix easily.
