Big Mono Redux

(for Kontakt, Wav)

The same sweet sound, now with knobs

Inspired by its own bad self, Big Mono Redux brings you the classic sound of Big Mono and gives you a new level of artistic control.

If you enjoyed the sound of the original Big Mono but wished you could tweak it, now you can. With volume controls for individual kit components, mic layer adjustments, and even panning, you can now hone the sound of the kit to suit your track.

The kit is a vintage 1970s Ludwig maple, with a Rogers Dynasonic snare, classic Zildjian and Sabian cymbals. Tracked in a big room through a vintage Neve console, directly to 2" tape.
