Plastique is a hard hitting classic rock kit with tone for miles. This kit will drive a classic rock track with authority and add flavour to fusion and pop pieces.
The kit itself is a vintage 1970s Ludwig Vistalite in Bonhamesque configuration and tuning, including two vintage Ludwig Supraphonic snares and Paiste 2002 cymbals.
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.
Enhance your live drum recording: kick, snare, toms – each with separated mic layers.
Each and every hit has 6 unique round-robin samples to avoid the mechanical machine-gun effect.
Easily switch between included drums

Plastique was sampled in the big room at York Street Studios (now closed). As usual we’ve used nothing but the finest gear to capture the kit, including Neumann mics, a vintage EMI Neve desk, API and Chandler preamps and a roll of 2″ tape.
