Kicks and Snares Ultra Analog VA-3 Sound Pack by ADAM PIETRUSZKO.

You can never have too many kicks and snares. Resident sound designer Adam Pietruszko signs off on an expertly crafted and clever collection of punchy bass drum and cut-through snare presets in this new sound pack for Ultra Analog VA-3. Bring new energy to your productions by laying a solid foundation with either classic analog drum machine inspired sounds or experimental and processed elements. Use Ultra Analog VA-3 to smartly shape each sound easily with inventive macro-control assignments for an infinite amount of sound possibilities—especially when combined with track automation. Along with its 30 kicks, 30 snares, and 25 rhythm grooves, hi-hats and various percussions were added to the pack for good measure, making Kicks and Snares a complete drum track solution for your projects.
