AC-DR

ACOUSTIC DRUM MACHINE

  • 90 KITS
  • 3GB SAMPLES
  • 20 ROBINS PER DRUM
  • BEAT TOOLS
  • KONTAKT PLAYER NKS

An old school drum machine with 21st century sampling techniques: round-robin samples, multi-channel sounds, generative sequencers.

It features acoustic drums recorded in innovative new ways to achieve a warm, dry, chunky sound. There are no traditional velocity layers, only 'normal' + 'accent'. Each of these layers has 10 round robins which gives the drums a living, organic feel.

  • All the sounds in AC-DR are generated from an acoustic drum hit, including mics, contact mics, live echo chambers and transformer distortion.
  • Each AC-DR drum module has up to 5 of these channels per drum to blend. Each of these channels is part of the same drum hit, all perfectly in phase and time aligned together.

Warm acoustic tones that you can tweak and shape like analogue.

AC-DR features only organic real life sources.

ROBIN POWER

  • EACH HIT IS UNIQUE
  • 20 HITS PER DRUM
  • NORMAL + ACCENT
  • HAND EDITED SETS

Each drum was painstakingly recorded in large sets of hits which were then edited by ear to produce a tight set of 10 random hits which sound as close to identical as possible.

ORGANIC SPACES

  • 2 ECHO CHAMBERS
  • RECORDED @ ROCKFIELD STUDIOS

All the bass drum, snare, rimshot and tom samples were re-amped in Rockfield's 2 echo chambers. The resulting reverb samples can be blended as a separate channel:a vital extra building block for drum design.
