Chocolate Audio

Chocolate Audio has announced the immediate availability of The Black Album Drums version 2.0.3 for Kontakt 5.5.2 and up and BFD3.

This product is a tribute to the now classic drum sound of the "Black Album" released in 1991 by the band Metallica. Having managed to track down the same exact kit used in 1991, recorded in the same studio (the former One On One in North Hollywood, CA) with the same mic and recording path and taking advantage of renowned recording engineer Mike Tacci who was assistant on that record, Chocolate Audio went all the way in trying to recreate the sound and vibe of the historic release.

Version 2.0.3 features bug fixes and new presets, including Mike Tacci's signature ones, both for the Kontakt and BFD3 versions.

As a special offer and for a limited time, The Black Album Drums is bundled with the TS-1 Transient Shaper audio plugin by Audiority, a USD 49.00 value. This plugin, available for Mac/PC in AAX, VST and AU formats goes a long way into modifying the attack and sustain parts of a sound using a unique approach:

  • Inspired by the drum sound in the "Black Album" by Metallica.
  • Features the same exact kit (Gretsch with Zildjian cymbals and a Tama Bell Brass snare).
  • 2 kicks, 2 snare (added an extra Ludwig 1970 Black Beauty), 5 toms, 4 crashes, 1 china and an additional ride.
  • BFD3 and Kontakt 5.5.2 Full Version and up.
  • Compressed sample size: 12.5 GB (for each version).
  • Number of Samples: 33000.
  • 11 round robins for Kicks + Snares.
  • 5 round robins for Toms + Cymbals.
  • 4 round robins for HiHat.
  • no less than 16 velocity splits for each main articulation.
  • 6 HiHat openings.
  • custom-built Kontakt Drummer Engine v. 2.0: introduces the Player, a complete MIDI Style composition and real-time performance tool.
  • more than 800 MIDI patterns and billion of combinations possible.
  • bundled for a limited time with Audiority TS-1 audio plugin.

The Black Album Drums is available now for a list price of USD 149.00. The bundle which features The Black Album Drums (USD 149.00) and Audiority TS-1 (USD 49.00) is on sale until May 1st 2016 for USD 109.00, a combined saving of 45%.
