The “9000 Classic” is a drum sample pack for Slate Digital’s Trigger plugin that delivers the classic sound of a prized Yamaha Recording Custom kit.
These samples are recorded with a view to sounding extremely natural, fat and full of tone and as a result they are capable of being used in a wide range of genres where a natural sound is desired. The pack features a gorgeous Yamaha Recording Custom kit with a 22x16 kick, 13x9 and 16x16 toms and capped off with a 1968 Ludwig Supraphonic 400 chrome over brass snare drum in a medium-high tuning. This kit is exceptional for pop, rock, country and any other style where a natural sound is preferred.
Each drum comes with separate control over the close mic’ed signal (Multiple Top and bottom for snare), stereo overheads, various room mics and a special print of the studio echo chamber enabling the user to quickly move between tight and punchy to wide open and ambient.
The kick features 7 velocity layers, the snare drum 9 velocity layers and the Toms 5 velocity layers each, with 9 samples per layer, helping to create a very accurate and natural replacement experience.
The microphone list used to capture the samples is as follows:
Kick Close - AKG D112
Kick Far - Royer 121
Overheads - AKG C414
Mono Room - Coles 4038
Toms Close - Sennheiser MD421
Snare Top 1 - Shure SM57
Snare Top 2 - Sennheiser MD421
Snare Bottom - Neumann KM184
All captured through API preamps.
The accompanying WAV files can be loaded into any sampler. The samples are saved into individual microphone folders per drum and are labelled in ascending velocity for each layer for ease of use when importing.
