Royale is a vintage jazz kit played with mallets. Based around a mint ’70s Rogers kit with select vintage Paiste and Zildjian cymbals, Rogers Dynasonic, Ludwig and Gretsch snares. Royale delivers a toneful foundation for jazz and other genres, and is versatile enough to go from delicate to raucous. The mix of the kit can be taken from crisp and intimate through to roomy and spacious with a few fader adjustments.
Three snares, two separate pairs of toms (high tension and open, medium tension and controlled), two kick drums with open and dampened options, two pairs of hihats, and two rides give you plenty of options to fit the kit into your track.
Multi-sampling: each kit component contains up to 7 velocity layers for expressive detail, dynamics and realism – check the details at the bottom of this page.
Round-robin: natural performance with 6x round-robin hits for every zone.
Switchable instruments: 4x kick variations, 2x tom variations, 2x swappable hihats and 2x rides.
Mic layers: 6x individually controllable mic layers: Close mics, Overheads, Two room mics, Kick Sub, and Snare-Bottom
