Sampler Engine: YouTube.com/watch?v=sa6OCI7iCTc

KVLT Drums 2 features Ugritone's most advanced sampler-engine covering numerous round robins and velocity layers that ensure the most realistic virtual drumming experience. Advanced scripting combined with a dynamic sampling technique ensures that you won't get that machine-gun robotic effect.

Interface & Mixing Features: YouTube.com/watch?v=sXhEnIkkVNo

The graphic user interface allows you to process the kit individually or in groups. You can adjust gain, pan & individual mic levels per each and every drum. Meaning that you can nail the desired blend of close mics, adjust the levels for overheads, room & FX channels. Total control over every channel.

Mic Features
To ensure full control over each and every channel, KVLT Drums was captured with multiple close mics, FX mics along with Overheads & Room Channels:

  • Close Mics:
    • Snare & shells: SM57 (1073 & Aural Exciter).
  • Cymbals:
    • U47 FET (G9 & 55B).
    • Kick: SM57 & U47 FET.
  • The Hell Mics:
    • This channel is the glue to make the kit sound even tighter together. Placed flat on the floor and compressed to death, The Hell Mic unites the kit.
    • Hell Mic: SM57 (Distressor, Limiter).
  • The Trash Mic:
    • If the Hell Mic is bringing the glue, the Trash Mic is bringing the grit. Bringing up those nasty overtones and that 4-track demo feel. Blend it in to get nice distorted harmonics or let this one dominate for Pure Fucking Armageddon.
    • Trash Mic: Unknown Talkback Mic (1073 & EQ).
  • Overheads:
    • Overheads is the crucial element to each and every drum sound. Some like to get the full picture out of Overheads while some like to carve out the lows and let it sparkle in the highs. We gave you the fullest, yet brightest possible starting point for Overhead sound so regardless of your approach, you are one-step closer in nailing a good Overhead sound.
    • Overhead Mics: Stereo Pair of KM184's (V72 & 1084).
  • Room Mics:
    • Room Channel captured the small yet punchy sound of the brand new Soundstakk Studios. Nulled away from the kit, the room mics added weight and depth into the drums.
    • Room Mic: Stereo Pair of 76's (G9, 670, 55B).

    • Mapex Armory 22x18 (MorrisKick, StickyKick).
