'We wanted a high quality authentic Bass Drum that we could customize in terms of room and reverb levels so we designed our own,' said David Donaldson of MODWHEEL. 'It was so successful we decided to record a whole set. There are so many great drum libraries out there but sometimes you want the option of a more intimate mix. Being able to actively control the level of the room mic sound using the mod wheel allows so much flexibility for the composer.'

HUMDRUM Highlights:

  • 2 double-skinned Marching Bass Drums
  • 2 Snare Drums
  • Toms large, medium and small
  • Performances (mallets & sticks) hits, flams, ruffs, stick across, rimshots, rolls
  • Up to 9 round robins with 6 velocity levels
  • Over 3200 samples recorded at 96 kHz
  • Control the room mic level using the mod wheel
  • Separate fully adjustable reverbs for the close and room mic sound
  • Tempo of flams and ruffs easily controlled by a speed knob

Available to purchase for a limited time only at $35 USD. The regular price will be $55 USD. Requires full version of Kontakt 5.3 or higher. For more information visit - HUMDRUM
