Kingpin is a punchy vintage kit combining classic vintage tone and modern snap. This kit can dish out everything from R'n'B and urban grooves through to rock, pop and indy tracks. The kit is a 1970s vintage Gretsch USA maple comprised of two rack toms, two floor toms, two kick drum variations and two snares. The drums are accompanied with Bosphorus cymbals for a dark, dry and smooth finish. The kit was sampled in a controlled enclosure for a tight and direct sound. As usual we've used nothing but the finest gear to capture the kit, including Neumann mics, a vintage Neve desk, API and Chandler preamps and a roll of 2" tape.

Features:

  • Round robin: each velocity layer contains 6 round-robin samples, played randomly to ensure realistic performances.
  • Multi-sampling: each key contains up to 8 velocity layers for expressive detail. Hihats are extensively sampled for convincing realism with 7 articulations (tip, tight, closed, loose, semi-open, open, pedaled).
  • Kontakt instrument interface: with separate volume and panning controls for individual drums, overhead mics, and room mics.
  • Sensitivity control: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for rock and heavier numbers.
  • Presets: for quickly dialing up sounds.
