Powerful, ready-to-go samples Steven Slate has sold samples to some of the country's top mixers, and has worked hard to tweak and test them in actual mixes, within various musical styles. What you get with this pack is the assurance that they're going to sound great right "out-of-the-box," with no tweaks necessary. Plus, Slate's already EQ'd and compressed these samples with precision - just throw the fader up and get right to work on your mix.
Multiple Ambient Spaces to Choose From
A unique feature to Steven Slate Drums is the Z system. Each drum sample set is actually processed in one of four ambient spaces, giving you a variety of tones and "feels" to choose from when you're selecting the right sound for your mix. Z1 mono sets have a slight amount of overhead micing for a three dimensional, airy, punchy, natural drum sound. Z2 sets are stereo samples, and have heavily compressed far room mics that are mixed in with closer mics, resulting in deep, fat sound that's ideal for your thick rock mixes. Z3 mono sets are dry and not processed with any ambient mics for a more in-your-face punk or speed metal type sound. Finally, the newest Z4 sample sets offer just the isolated room sound of each sample. So, if you mix a Z1 with a Z4, for example, you'll get a pure, 3D drum tone that delivers the characteristics of a stellar-sounding drum room.
High-Quality Models of Famous Kits
Incorporate the drum kits of some of the biggest bands in recent rock history. This collection includes dead-on kit models of Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan, Motley Crue, Metallica, Greenday, Deftones, AC/DC (Vintage and Modern), Foo Fighters, Pantera, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Dream Theater.
Drums Sampled a Variety of Ways
Acoustic drummers know that you can produce a variety of tones depending on how you tune the drum at certain tensions, by dampening and undampening the drum, by using different drum heads, or by tightening and loosening the snares. Steve Slate Drums makes use of all of these different signature sounds, and many of the drums are sampled with different tunings, different heads, and different dampenings - it's like having an acoustic kit, and a live drummer right inside your studio.
