Stretch That Note releases "DruMM Elements Series 4: Hats" for Kontakt

Stretch That Note

Stretch That Note (STN) has released DruMM Elements Series 4: Hats, a new Hi Hat library for Kontakt.

Having previously released kick, snare, clap and bass instruments, STN have now trained their sights on the world of hi-hats — and more specifically to the kind of hi-hat that "can transform a dull and plodding hip-hop, pop or RnB demo into a cutting-edge masterpiece with attitude".

If you prefer working directly in your DAW, the DruMM series modules are all downloadable as raw layered WAV sample sets — but for Kontakt users powerful scripting has been carefully programmed to do all the difficult sonic manipulation stuff for you, via an easy-to-use interface.

You want to manipulate the timing and phase relationships of different layered samples to make things sound brighter, darker, snappier or smoother? There's a knob for that. And if you want to take advantage of Mid/Sides processing to get the stereo image of your final layered sound just right there's a knob for that too. You can also crush the sound, add dirt, tweak the amp and filter envelopes… and a lot more.

As with all instruments in the DruMM series, you get more than a bunch of auto-sliced samples, and the scripting is just a start. The raw samples have all been painstakingly topped, tailed and separated out into discrete ADSR envelope elements manually, by STN's Eddie Bazil, ensuring that every sample starts at the all-important transient — no sooner, no later. They've all been polarity matched too.

The result is a versatile instrument that enables you to layer both horizontally and vertically: you can put one drum on top of another; you can take the start of one drum sound and layer it with the middle and end of two different ones. And you can mix and match any of the sounds from this series freely, without worrying about gremlins like phase-cancellation 'holes' or timing discrepancies from sloppy edits detracting from your all-important groove.

There's a range of completely unrestricted taster modules for you to download and audition for free: no time limits, no noise bursts, no dongle. You can sign up here to get your 3 free Modules.

As well as the freebies, there are six modules available in the DruMM Elements Hats range, at $10 each — or you can get the whole range for only $50.
