Vintage Folk Rock Kit - Drum Replacement Pack

Expansion Packs by DrumDrops

The Vintage Folk Rock Kit is an awesome kit for a 60s / 70s Folk Rock or Indie rock sound. We used the engineering skills of the legendary engineer / producer Phill Brown (Laura Marling / John Martyn / Rolling Stones) whose indepth knowledge of recording bands during these years helped mould the sound of the kit. The Kit used was a beautiful old 1966 Ludwig Hollywood kit and it was setup by legendary drumtech Martin Oldham. To direct us on the sound of the kit we used Folk specialist drummer Martyn Barker (Rufus Wainwright, Richard Hawley, Katherine Williams) who sampled the kit using sticks, hotrods and brushes which effectively gives you three kits - nice !

For the sound Phill Brown (John Martyn, Bob Marley, Rolling Stones, Talk Talk, Led Zeppelin) used his years of accumulated knowledge and went back to the time of the 60s when he was based at Olympic Studios. Phill’s idea was to create a 1960s drum sound with a modern twist. Instead of positioning the microphones close to the kit he wanted to capture a natural drum sound and record the ‘dead’ room. He used only five microphones on the kit: one on the kick, the snare, two kit microphones placed around the kit which provide a surprisingly good stereo picture, and a mono overhead. All of the mics were recorded through API mic pre's. 

The kit was recorded in the drier sounding room at Livingston (we saved the liver room for the Modern Folk Rock Kit ). Although the sound is controlled, it has a great ambience around it. Livingston has been used to record a multitude of hit records over the years and is well known for being one of London’s top drum rooms.

The kit we used for this was a beautiful vintage 1966 Ludwig Hollywood Kit. It is almost identical to the Super Classic kit which Ringo Starr once used, except it has two rack toms rather than just the one. These are beautiful sounding kits. The snare used was a 1967 wooden Ludwig Snare owned by Martyn. We also include some tambourine and shaker articulations.

What Is the Drum Replacement Pack?

The Drum Replacement Pack is perfect for users who use Slate Trigger V2, Drumagog or DrumXchanger. The Slate Trigger patch has been created using the five mics placed around the kit. There are samples for the kick drum, snare and toms. You can choose to trigger any of the samples. The samples in this patch have up to 24 velocity levels and five round robins.

The Drumagog 5 pack uses the same samples and you can create the balance between the five mics based around the kit. This patch uses up to 8 velocity levels with four round robins. We have included samples for the Kick, Snare, toms and hi-hat. If you version of Drumagog contains the Auto hi-hat tracking feature then the samples will follow the opening an closing of the hi-hat. Patches for Drumagog 5 and Drumagog 4 are included.

The DrumXchanger patch contains stereo mixed samples (a combination of the overhead, room and close mics samples). This patch contains eight velocity levels with no round robins. The snare also contains a rimshot sample that has its own adjustable trigger threshold.
