So, this is an interesting and very dead drum sound.  Thin cotton dish towels were placed on top of the snare and both toms, and double exterior pillow muffling pads were used on the kick.  The only amount of audible resonance is coming from the bottom heads on the toms, that’s it, super super dry drum sound.  One of the perks of such heavy muffling is that you can tune everything super low without it sounding like complete crap, so that’s what was done here.  The snare and toms especially, are as low as they can go.  Basically everything is just a dead thud – perfect for creative processing and effects , if you so desire.  The cymbal lineup features the 22” dry dark ride, 12” hi hats, and 17” crash/ride with rivets.  If you want a drum sound with presence, that won’t take up too much real estate, then this is this one.  This kit was recorded using only sticks.  It’s really the only tool that made sense.  Mallets sounded the same a sticks, and brushes just sounded like playing on a couch pillow.  Dig.

Includes multitrack samples for sticks at 3 velocities (soft, medium and loud).

*All 1-shot samples come as a multitrack 5 pack – because that’s how the kit was recorded, 5 mics/tracks as follows:  bass drum, snare drum, room, overhead left, and overhead right.  You can blend these 5 tracks to your liking to create an authentic drum kit sound, or alternatively,  just choose which ever track you like and use it as a single-track sample in your production.  All downloads at OGDL come completely “dry” and un-processed giving you the freedom to make them sound like whatever you want.
