Advanced Drum Series Blackbird for Kontakt VST-AU-AAX overview
BLACKBIRD Drummer is one of the most comprehensive drum kits ever sampled and contains over 37.000 samples and features an extended Mapex Kit.
BLACKBIRD was engineered to perfection by Taylor Larson (Oceanic Studios / Periphery) and contains 10 individual microphone positions for ultimate mixing flexibility. You have individual microphones for kick drum, snares, hi-hats, cymbals, toms and dedicated overhead, room and custom distortion. The user-interface is highly intuitive and flexible – designed for both beginners and pros.
BLACKBIRD is our second library to utilize our new flow-note technology. One of the challenges with normal drum sampling is that elements like hats and cymbals artificially stack upon each other. In reality a cymbal doesn’t stack. It partially mutes when its hit again, while also carrying some sound from the previous hit. We call this technology, flow-note.
BLACKBIRD contains over 37.000 samples and 25.000 lines of custom code taking the playability and realism to the next level.
BLACKBIRD is powered by the powerful Kontakt engine allowing for ultimate flexibility and effective streaming. BLACKBIRD also contains features for advanced users, including ability to choose individual FX pr. microphone position. Ability to send each channel to separate output and remapping tools. The entire user-interface was designed in 3D and is incredible intuitive to use.
But most importantly BLACKBIRD just works. It sounds completely real out of the box and doesn’t take a drum scientist or rocket engineer to operate. The flow-note technology makes everything connect. The mixer allows you to dial in your desired sound in seconds.
BLACKBIRD is all about hyper-realistic sound – playability and ease of use.
