Here is a different kind of drumkit : a nice non velocity instrument. Though it is non-velocity (except the crash cymbals which are velocity layered), the substantial number of round robins keeps thing quite musical. It works pretty well in a modern hard rock context, where a huge range of soft performance dynamics are not required.
You will need the free TX16WX sampler. Download from here :
Install before proceeding with below.
The kit is here (a small 188 MB zipped) :
1. Download, unzip and run the included Reaper project file.
I have included the used sample content in the download, and there is no locating of samples required.
2. It is pretty much plug and play (and hopefully fool proof). The kit is stereo out by default.
The mapping is GM standard, except MIDI Note 47 which is loose hat articulation instead of a tom.
3. It is set by default to stereo out , but you can select multi-out instead of stereo out (drop down option on the left side). If you select the multi-out, you need to ensure/build the routing.
I tried to make this as RAM / CPU friendly and simple as possible. But I guarantee that you will be surprised at the realism of the kit.
