(for Kontakt, EX24, Wav)

Grandioso is about as big as it gets. Turn up the room mic, hit it hard and it will deliver explosive beats with resounding impact. Or back off the room mic and use more moderate dynamics for surprisingly smooth, subtle and detailed grooves.

The kit is a vintage 1970s Ludwig Vistalite with the toms tuned low for growl, the kick unported for added weight, and the classic Ludwig Supraphonic snares in medium and high tunings. Accompanied with Paiste 2002 cymbals in rock proportions. The kit was tracked in a wooden theatre with cavernous acoustics, providing a lush natural reverberation. As usual we've used nothing but the finest gear to capture the kit including Neumann mics, vintage Neve 1064 and Ward Beck preamps.
