Two kits that helped shape the sound of the 90s.

Modern Retro Drums features 4 full drum kits sampled from:

  • a 1997 Sonor Designer kit played with sticks and hotords.
  • a Tama Starclassics kit played with stick and brushes.

The kits come with 4 sets of cymbals sampled from a Zildjian set (sticks and hotrods) and a Turkish set (sticks and brushes) and additional Cymbals (Sabian and Ufip) and 6 snares from Ludwig, Sonor and Tama, presented in 13 different versions.

These kits have been largely used since the '90s to craft some of the best selling music ever recorded:

  • 15 GB compressed sample content size.
  • 67499 samples.
  • 4 full drum kits (2 sticks + 1 brushes + 1 hotrods).
  • 72 drum pieces.
  • sampled in full detail: up to 300 samples per articulation and up to 11 round robin (Kontakt).
  • integrated, advanced MIDI player with 19 Styles, made up of 1119 patterns recorded by a top session drummer.
  • up to 4 close mics.
  • 4 room channels: Overhead stereo, Overhead mono ribbon, Room U87 and Room PZM.
  • warm and deep sound, recorded through an analog tape machine.
  • tuning, velocity curve and AHD envelope controls on each drum.
  • 25 global factory presets.
  • 36 custom IR reverbs.
  • 6 HiHat openings.
  • custom-built Kontakt Drummer Engine v. 2.0: introduces the Player, a complete MIDI Style composition and real-time performance tool.

It sounds very good, with many drum kit and individual piece options, and the patterns included are useful. It was easy to drag and drop and then edit in order to arrange a song. I especially like the British versions of the drum kits. They have a good impact with tight kicks and snares.

The only negative thing is that the mixer page and preferences tabs that were in the demo video are not included in the product, and also, the setting he demonstrated of having a fill in every 2, 4 or 8 bars option is not there either. This is a very stripped-down, simplified version.
