"DrumDrops have done a wonderful job at capturing this room with their new Mapex kit. Not only does this new instrument sound great but I also love the user friendly retro-flavoured interface they've created too."

"The Mapex's tone and punch has been amazingly captured and the level of detail in each sample is exemplary. More than capable of handling the most complex of programming demands. Big fan."
Paul Win Winstanley. Paul Winstanley (aka Win) has forged a name for himself over the last 3 decades in the south coast’s music scene as a musician, producer, and latterly a tracking, mixing and mastering engineer.

What Is the The Multi-Velocity Pack?

The Multi-Velocity Pack adds the highest level of realism a sample pack has to offer, and is designed for those who do not have Kontakt 5 or who have Kontakt 5 but do not want the all singing all dancing version which we ship as the Kontakt pack. This pack contains all the different articulations of the kit with in to 16 different velocity levels providing 481 samples to choose from. All the samples have been mixed from a combination of the individual drum microphones and overhead microphones. This pack can be loaded into any DAW, sampler or drum machine that reads 24 bit WAV samples. 

To make things easier we have included patches so that the samples will automatically load into the latest versions of Battery, Kontakt, EXS24, Maschine, Geist, Studio One Soundsets, Ableton Drum Rack, iDrum, Renoise, Reason Refill packs and the free TX16Wx sampler. We have also included over 500 MIDI loops covering a variety of genres that map to the default MIDI map. Finally there are multiple guide MIDI maps for Addictive Drums, BFD, iMap, Superior Drummer, Slate Digital SSD4, V-Drums and Drumit Five.
