Real Drums Collection' by Realsamples contains a Pearl™ drum set with two snare drums (wood & brass), ride, crash & splash cymbals. The drums have been sampled with up to 110 velocity layers.
Additionally, the drums were recorded in 'Left Hand' and 'Right Hand' versions, so you can program realistic fills and rolls. Pre-recorded rolls done by the drummer are included as well.
Apart from regular sticks, brushes and 'Hot Rods' were utilised as well. The bass drum was recorded with both the left and right pedals.
All the mics of the drum kit were left open to add the acoustics of the recording room as well as the 'mic bleed' of a normal drum recording situation. This way a natural drum sound was achieved.
Recorded in 96 KHz/24-Bit resolution, the signal was downsampled to 44.1 KHz/24-Bit (16-Bit in the GigaStudio® version). The set includes ready-to-play presets for Halion®, Kontakt2 and GigaStudio®. The GigaStudio version contains 16 velocity layers.
