Smoker is a jazz kit with all the credentials ticked. Based around a toneful ’70s Rogers kit with a selection of classic snares and cymbals, Smoker has a warm vintage tone. It’s fit for soulful and sparse numbers, hyped up frenetic bebop, bombastic big band, and funked up lounge.
The mix of the kit can be taken from crisp and articulate to smooth and spacious with a few fader adjustments. Played with hand selected maple 7a sticks to bring out deep and subtle tones.
Three snares, two separate pairs of toms (high and medium tension), two kick drums both sampled open and dampened, two pairs of hihats, and three rides give you a heap of options for selecting the tones that work best for your track.
Individually controllable mic layers - Close mics, Overheads, Room mics, Smash mic, Kick Sub, and Snare-Bottom.
Switch to ‘eKit’ mode when using a Roland V-Drum kit, or leave set to ‘Keyboard mode’ for direct MIDI sequencing. The layout is General MIDI (GM) compatible.
Stereo and multi-channel output versions provided.
Each and every hit has 6 unique round-robin samples to avoid the mechanical machine-gun effect.
