WHAT IS THE TAPE DRUM KONTAKT INSTRUMENT?
The TAPE DRUM Kontakt Instrument is a dynamic, buildable drum kit featuring customizable drum sounds recorded and mixed through analog tape machines.
The TAPE DRUM Kontakt instrument puts creativity in your hands, and right in your DAW. Featuring 24 tape-processed drum sounds and 73 factory presets, TAPE DRUM drips with vibe and the unmistakeable sound of vintage tape machines.
Looking for even more control over your sounds? Each TAPE DRUM sound comes with 4 microphone variations (Crisp, Natural, Room, and Warm), plus 6 round robins and 5 velocity layers. Tune your drums, choose from 3 tape models, and adjust the Drive, Wow, and Flutter for a sound that's truly yours, all within the intuitive, built-in mixing interface and tape controls.
WHAT ARE THE 4 TYPES OF MICROPHONE CHARACTERS?
We included 4 mic character variations so you can decide your vibe:
CRISP: Bright and vibrant. We recorded and mixed these sounds using FET condenser mics and tube EQs.
NATURAL: Looking for your sonic Goldilocks? Natural offers a mix of brightness and heft, thanks to the tube condenser mics and inductor EQs user during recording and mixing.
ROOM: Raw, spacey, and slightly unhinged. These sounds make you feel like you're in the room with the drums. Recorded and mixed using room mics and limiter compression.
WARM: Fat, dark, and pillowy. We recorded and mixed these sounds with ribbon mics and tube EQs for a dense, dreamy result.
