  • Built in per-microphone effects.
  • Multiple dynamic layers and round robins on all parts of the kit.
  • "Dry mix" mode disables mic bleed.
  • Free to download and use in personal or commercial projects.

Articulations list:

  • Kick: single pedal hit.
  • Snare: Snare hit, rimshot, flam, crossfading rolls with multiple roll speeds, snare with wires disengaged, ghost notes, cross stick.
  • Toms: Two rack toms and floor tom.
  • Hihat: Open, half, closed, and mute.
  • Cymbals: 22", 18", 16", and 10" cymbals with mutes and scrapes.

This is one excellent close-miked drum library for Kontakt.

General impression:

Right off the bat it sounds very nice. Kick and snares are tight, hats are not overprocessed and thus you can really abuse them to an exciting effect. Easy to mute any long metallic instruments, some tiny details, very nice rhythm sticks: all sounds are recorded and mixed very wisely.


• great, tight, enjoyable sound.
• ability to reprocess your sounds, which includes stereo image control, eq, comp, reverb and transient shaper;
• despite my previous statement: very slick and tiny interface that doesn't jump on you wth no reason.

In short: I totally adore it.

I love programming "live" music with rich elements done on single instruments in order to get that "circus jazz band" feeling, and this one will be of so much help to me, and it's free. It really motivated me to go to their site and explore it; I thought there's going to be a mailing list to buy some paid products, but turns out every library there is free, donation-ware. I'll definitely consider it, because you can feel how much love someone've put in there.

Hmm, my Mac doesn't respond well when I try to use the Torrent button on the site... but this looks like a fun thing.

Sorry I didn't see your comment earlier! For anyone else having trouble with torrents, you need to have a BitTorrent client installed to use BitTorrent links. You can refer to the Ivy Audio FAQ if you need more info.
