Organic Drum Loops has announced the release of the free Organic Calfskin Kit VST3 instrument plug-in.
Organic Calfskin Kit (OCK) is an acoustic drum VST3 ROMpler plugin for both macOS and Windows designed as a comprehensive and easy-to-use solution to working with the thousands of multi-track/multi-velocity samples found at organicdrumloops.com.
This specific plugin (version 1.0) features samples from the Default-Dry kit. This kit is a moderately dry sounding setup that offers good punch for modern music styles and minimal sustain for easy mixing.
Since the sound of a drumkit is greatly influenced by the tools that are used to play it, this kit was sampled using three common options, sticks, brushes and mallets - so of course, the OCK includes these options within the plugin settings. Just as a live drummer would choose a tool based on the song, users of this plugin are given the same options for greater flexibility within their production.
The plugin also offers a range of controllable parameters over its multitracked samples including, volume, pan, pitch, "weirdness" (LFO), and routing options.
