Buckshot is a modern take on a vintage kit with plenty of punch to cut through and enough tone to sit right in a rock track, or dial back the dynamics for a lush and more subtle approach. The kit is a vintage 1970s Gretsch Stop-Sign Maple with Zildjian and Sabian cymbals. The kit was tracked in an old wooden theatre and dialling in the room sound can go from tight to lush and smooth.
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.
Easily switch between included drums

As usual we’ve used nothing but the finest gear to capture the kit including classic Neumann mics, vintage Neve 1064 preamps. The tracks were then processed through vintage DBX 160 “VU” compressors for added grit and girth.
