This sample pack contains 109 samples of a Ludwig Accent Combo 14x6 snare drum played by drummer Kent Breckner and recorded with eight different microphones and multiple velocity layers. For each microphone there are ten velocity layers but in addition there is a ‘combi’ set which is a mixture of my three favorite mics with ten velocity layers and a ‘special’ set featuring those three mics with some processing and nineteen velocity layers, the even-numbered ones being interpolated. The microphones used were a Shure SM57, a Beyer Dynamic M201, a Josephson e22s, a Josephson C42, a Neumann TLM103, an Electrovoice RE20, an Electrovoice ND868 and an Audio Technica Pro37R. Placement of mic varied according to sensitivity and polar pattern. Preamps used were NPNG and Millennia Media and all sources were recorded directly to Pro Tools through Frontier Design Group and Digidesign converters. Final editing and processing was carried out in Cool Edit Pro. This sample pack is intended for use with software such as Drumagog or Sound Replacer.
