Wave Alchemy has announced the release of its new Synth Drums drum library. Synth Drums combines “expertly programmed” vintage synthesizers with high-end processing to create a flexible electronic drum sample library for modern music production.
Synth Drums contains nearly 6,000 unique drum samples and percussive hits, each created on a sound-by-sound basis.
Synths used include:
- Roland Jupiter 8
- Roland System-100 (101, 102, 104)
- Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2
- Sequential Circuits Pro One
- Korg MS-20
- ARP Odyssey MK1
- Moog Minimoog Model D
- Oberheim OB8
- Roland Juno 106
- Roland SH-09
The library has been designed for maximum flexibility — both processed and un-processed versions of each sound are provided, along with a special selection of drum sounds which have been ‘bounced’ thorough special processes to add character, warmth and tone using Vinyl and Reel-to-Reel 1/4-inch tape with multiple saturation levels.
The pack also contains more than one hundred “ready-to-play” drum kits in different sampler formats which include Reason NN-XT, Kong, Halion, SFZ, Native Instruments Battery 3 and Kontakt.
Pricing and availability: Wave Alchemy’s Synth Drums library retails for £54.95 (around $85.00 US). The product is already available, and can be purchased directly from Wave Alchemy, or through its international distribution partners at Loopmasters.
