Fat Stacks (for Kontakt/Trigger/Wav)

Fat Stacks for mad tracks

Fat Stacks is a vintage club kit with small drums for a big sound. This kit can set the tone for a range of styles that need an organic, lively beat. We think it sounds good for R'n'B, hiphop, funk, raw drum'n'bass, and even acoustic tracks. With several mic layers to blend to your taste, the sound of the kit can go from snappy and clean to gritty and lofi with the twist of a knob. Four snare variations and two kick variations keep things interesting. This is a kit Jesse Pinkman would be proud to slam.

The kit is a vintage 1970s Gretsch maple in club configuration, with a custom Pearl micro snare, classic Zildjian, Paiste and Wuhan cymbals. Tracked in a small dry room through classic APIs and modern Buzz Audio pres.

  • Round-robin: natural performance thanks to seven round-robin hits on every zone.
  • Output routing: stereo and multi-channel output versions provided.
  • Sensitivity control: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more intricate and subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for heavier tracks.
  • Preset patches: for quickly dialing up different sounds.
  • eKit input mode switch to 'eKit' mode when using a Roland V-Drum kit, or leave set to 'Keyboard mode' for direct MIDI sequencing.
