Granular Drum Kits - KICKNSNARE

2016-04-03 07:34:23

If you are into electronic music, you might be interested in the percussive expansion pack that I have been working on. It's a new sound set for users of Steinberg's Padshop and Padshop Pro called Granular Drum Kits. It has a whopping 350 presets and 278 manipulated stereo samples.

  • 1 Bass Patch
  • 4 Bells
  • 22 Cymbals
  • 38 Drumsets
  • 23 Hats
  • 24 Kicks
  • 6 Claps and Hits
  • 23 Percussion Patches
  • 67 Snares
  • 39 Toms
  • 3 Hits & Stabs
  • 43 Motion FX
  • 19 Mechanical SFX
  • 18 Percussion FX
  • 20 Synthetic FX

Using Padshop or Padshop Pro for a percussive virtual instrument might be a new approach for creating drum and percussion tracks for some users. I found it to be an interesting way to have control on individual sounds when constructing drum kits and cinematic drum templates. One of the coolest things about this expansion pack is the incredible soundscapes. I found the motion FX's to be very useful for trailer music, film scores and sound design.

Today's video post is called "KICKNSNARE". It features only presets from the GDK expansion pack.

Have a listen!
