Imperial Drums For Kontakt
$99.00 $79.00

Drums that have a Majestic Sound

The medium-sized recording room used on BFD Imperial Drums allows naturally warm ambience and direct mic signals with superb isolation. Many of the included instruments provide alternative ambient and direct mic sets for increased variety. Finally, 13 stick and beater types including hot-rods, webs, rutes and jazz brushes were used to play the instruments.

The included drums, cymbals and hihats are expertly set up and tuned by experienced session drummer Elio Rivagli. With over 150 loadable instruments in total, Imperial Drums' sounds are suitable for all genres of music that demand powerful, musical-sounding drums.

Imperial Drums features drums sampled from:

  • 2 DW kits played with wooden, hotrod, brush, mallet no-wires, blastix and web sticks.
  • 1 Ludwig Vistalite kit played with wooden, wooden no-wires, blades, blastix, brush, mallet, mallet no-wires, hotrod sticks.
  • 5 Remo Rototoms played with wooden, blades, brush, mallet, hortod sticks.
  • 18 Paiste cymbals, including 3 Hi-Hats and 4 Rides, all played with different kind of sticks.
  • 7 snares from Ludwig, DW, Premier, Remo and Yamaha, played with different sticks.

Some of these audio demos are tracked from the BFD version of Imperial Drums (marketed by Fxpansion), but the two share the same exact sample set, hence they testify the kind of sounds one can achieve.
