Drummix Metal 1 is part of a collection of acoustic drum plug-ins recorded at a professional recording studio with pristine equipment.
The drum kit used for Drummix Metal 1 is a Tama Artstar 2; one of the 25 copies of Lars Ulrich’s Black Album tour drums with 6 toms, 2 kick drums and loads of cymbals. Metal 1 is recorded in a medium ambiance room, but with additional microphones in a huge space next door to bring out a big metal sound that the company likes. It comes with several different kick and snare samples.
The plug-in has outputs for every microphone recorded so the user can mix the drums like a real drum kit. These drum kits were recorded with microphones from Neumann, AKG, Coles, Beyerdynamic, Shure and many more. They were professionally engineered through mic pres from Universal Audio, Neve, TLA, AMEK and Elberg into 24 bit RME converters and Nuendo.
The plug-in comes both in stereo for a quick setup and in a multiple output version. In the multiple output version all the different microphones are sent out to 12 different physical outputs in your DAW. This way the can mix the drums just like a real recorded drum kit. Add EQ, compression and reverb to taste. Go for hi-fi or low-fi sound or even remove some of the microphones to make it sound completely different.
