|Product||Vintage Folk Rock Kit - Drum Replacement Pack|
|Type / Tags|
The Vintage Folk Rock Kit drum replacement pack is perfect for vintage, folk or indie rock tracks with a 60s / 70s drum sound. These samples were recorded and mixed by the legendary Phill Brown (John Martyn, Bob Marley, Rolling Stones, Talk Talk, Led Zeppelin) whose indepth knowledge of recording bands in these years helped mould the sound of the kit. This kit is in fact not just one kit but three kits in one as we have recorded the articulations with sticks, brushes and hotrods.
The kit used was a vintage 1966 Ludwig Hollywood kit and it was setup and played by specialist Folk drummer Martyn Barker (Rufus Wainwright, Richard Hawley, Katherine Williams)
For the sound Phill Brown used his years of accumulated knowledge and went back to the time of the 60s when he was based at Olympic Studios. Phill's idea was to create a 1960s drum sound with a modern twist. Instead of positioning the microphones close to the kit he wanted to capture a natural drum sound and record the 'dead' room. He used only five microphones on the kit: one on the kick, the snare, two kit microphones placed around the kit which provide a surprisingly good stereo picture, and a mono overhead. All of the mics were recorded through API mic pre's.
The kit was recorded in the drier sounding room at Livingston Studios in London (we saved the brighter room for the Modern Folk Rock Kit which is coming soon). Although the sound is controlled, it has a great ambience around it. Livingston has been used to record a multitude of hit records over the years and is well known for being one of London's top drum rooms.
This vintage 1966 Ludwig Hollywood kit consists of a 22" x 14" kick drum, 13" x 9" and 12" x 8" rack toms and a 16" x 16" floor tom. The snare used was a 1967 Ludwig14" x 5" snare. Cymbals used were Zildjian Constantinople 14" hi-hats, a 20" flat top ride, a 17" medium thin crash and an 18" K Custom Dark crash. The kit also includes a shaker and tambourine.
We have included three different patches in this pack all for drum replacement software:
The Slate Trigger patch has been created using the close mic, overhead and room mic samples from the kit. There are samples for the kick drum, snare and toms. The samples in this patch have up to 24 velocity levels and six round robins totalling 8900 samples. The samples come in the tci format.
The Drumagog 5 patch uses the same samples and you can choose the balance between the close mic, overheads and room mics. This patch uses up to 8 velocity levels with four round robins totalling 2688 samples. We have included samples for the Kick, snare, toms and hi-hat. If your version of Drumagog contains the Auto hi-hat tracking feature then the samples will follow the opening and closing of the hi-hat. The samples come in the gog format. We have also included a patch for Drumagog 4 which uses 332 samples.
The DrumXchanger patch contains stereo mixed samples (a combination of the overhead, room and close mics samples). This patch contains eight velocity levels with no round robins totalling 121 samples. The snares also contain a rimshot sample that have their own adjustable trigger threshold. The samples come in the splx format.
