FXpansion is proud to present Zildjian Digital Vault, a comprehensive collection of Zildjian cymbal recordings ready to slot into your BFD2 or BFD Eco installation.
Zildjian Digital Vault features 34 classic crashes, splashes, rides, chinas and hihats hand-selected by Zildjian's master cymbal tester Paul Francis. Recorded in intricate detail by sampling guru John Emrich, the sounds are captured with crisp direct mics and lush stereo overhead and room mic sets. Each cymbal is recorded at multiple velocities while being struck by sticks, brushes and mallets. The included cymbals feature articulations for bow, edge and bell positions while hihats feature tip and edge hits at 5 positions between open and closed.
Included are 14 A-series, 9 K-series and 11 FX cymbals from the Zildjian range as well as a series of authentic drumkit grooves.
