Native Instruments introduced ABBEY ROAD 50s DRUMMER, a new KONTAKT instrument featuring the sound of two classic drum kits from the 1950s. The kits provide the distinctive drum sound of the era, which was necessary to compete with the electrified instruments gaining popularity at the time. Recorded with both state-of-the-art and period equipment at Abbey Road Studios in London, 50s DRUMMER also includes a groove library, mixer presets, and a new set of brush articulations, delivering the authentic feel of rock and roll, rhythm and blues, country, and jazz from the 1950s.
Imagine having a hugely powerful, flexible and inspiring analogue drum synth in your studio: one that allows you to create classic tones from the past or sculpt entirely new contemporary sounds easily and seamlessly. Then imagine that it’s been wired in to a choice of classic, old-skool hardware samplers, so that you can record its output through their signature electronics, pushing their A-to-D converters just as far as you want, to get that meaty thud and crunch to the low end, and crackly sizzle to the high end that only vintage samplers can impart to a beat. Imagine doing away with their cryptic interfaces in favour of a single knob that allows you to dial in precisely how much of their character you want stamped on your sound.
