Description


Specifically designed for metal, speed metal, grunge, and hard rock enthusiasts, The Black Kit is a deeply sampled Mapex drum kit with a huge impactful character and high octane seven-dimension microphone sampling. You are in complete control of the kit's sound, with the ability to balance seven different phase-aligned mics, multiple snare tuning options, and advanced realism features with extensive velocity layers and round robin takes. Snare buzz control, multiple articulations, room type and size control, multiple outs, and MIDI remapping features (featuring custom mappings as well as instant support for many other common drum maps) are also supported. The Black Kit makes it easy to create a slamming drum performance with a minimum of effort. The Black Kit ships with 2.7 GB of compressed drum samples (4.9 GB uncompressed) and requires the full version of Kontakt 5.
