Overview

The Organic Calfskin Kit (OCK) is an acoustic drum VST3 ROMpler plugin for both Mac and Windows.  This is a comprehensive and easy-to-use solution to working with the thousands of multi-track/multi-velocity samples found on this site over here.

This specific download features samples from the Default-Dry kit.  This kit is a moderately dry sounding setup that offers good punch for modern music styles and minimal sustain for easy mixing.

Since the sound of a drumkit is greatly influenced by the tools that are used to play it, this kit was sampled using three common options, sticks, brushes and mallets – so of course, the OCK includes these options within the plugin settings.  Just as a live drummer would choose a tool based on the song, users of this plugin are given the same options for greater flexibility within their production.

Techie Stuff & features:

-both Mac and Windows versions are VST3 and 64 bit.

-3 layer multi-velocity samples

-5 mic layout gain and pan settings as well as outputs for routing to aux tracks for more control

-hi hat openings by BPM

-cymbal choking

-global settings for gain, pitch bend, velocity curve, weirdness (LFO filter) amount, speed and shape

-panic button

Requirements:

-MAC version: OS X 10.13.6 and above (Catalina compatible!)

-WIN version: Windows 7/8/10 64-bit

-2.2GB Disk Space

-64-bit VST3 Host

Installation:

-This plugin does not come with an installer package.  It must be installed manually.  Put both the instruments folder (do not extract .mse files) and the .vst3 file into your computer’s vst/vst3 folder.  For Mac the path is typically:  finder>go>option/library>audio>plug-ins>vst  . . .  For windows the common path is:  c:>program files>common files>vst3 . . .

Change Log:

11-19-20.  version 1.1

– resampled the audio files to 48kHz with SoX (best settings), which has greatly the reduced overall file size; the plugin now takes up 1.1GB instead of 2.2GB (414MB zipped!)

– sample rate now capped to 48kHz to match the plugins; the volume spike problem should now be fixed

– fixed typo on GUI

11-03-20. version 1.0

– release

  • if you haven’t already, be sure to checkout the thousands of drum loops that are an awesome compliment to this plugin.
