drumasonic 2. Two steps ahead.

  • New instrument models, more microphone signals, even greater dynamic response and elaborate round robin implementation.

  • drumasonic comes with 3 bass drums, 6 snare drums, 5 toms, 4 hihats, 5 rides, 9 crashes and various percussion instruments, recorded in two different rooms.

  • Two of the snare drums can be played with sticks, rods, or brushes and have true round robin samples.

  • Up to 11 microphone signals per instrument: mix in stereo and surround with unlimited mixing flexibility and sonic diversity.

  • Great e-drum playability: enjoy natural-sounding flams, rolls, cymbal chokes and incredibly realistic hihat control.

  • Built-in preset system: choose from a selection of pre-mixed drum kits, or create your own mix.

  • Integrated groove player with extremely flexible and musical groove modification capabilities, providing shuffle, quantize, delay, velocity per instrument category and much more.

  • Shipping with a groove library containing hundreds of production-ready grooves, fills, and percussion loops.

  • The integrated mapping converter allows for seamless integration of 3rd party groove libraries.

  • Versatile integrated mixing engine providing state-of-the-art effects, such as EQ, compressor, transient shaper, tape saturation, convolution reverb, delay, and master limiter.

  • Superior phase correlation: no matter which mic signals you combine, drumasonic will always sound fat and natural.

  • Streamlined interface: mix your drums faster and easier than ever before.

  • Over 30,000 samples — more than 4 times the number of drumasonic 1.5.

  • Advanced voice reduction technology and efficient purge features: deactivate unused instruments, microphones, articulations or beaters to save memory and optimize the performance.


The Instruments Page

  • Choose from up to 11 freely combinable microphones per instrument model, recorded in two distinct rooms. Thanks to optimized phase correlation, your drums will "sit in the mix" like never before. Additionally, drumasonic contains a selection of synthetic drum sounds which can be layered with the acoustic samples in order to create powerful metal, drum'n'bass and and pop kits.

  • The extremely powerful engine provides a comprehensive mixing surface per Instrument model, offering mute/solo, panning, balance, stereo width control and volume envelopes for every single microphone signal. In addition, you can adjust the velocity curve, modulations, pitch, delay, and "shape", per instrument model.

  • Flexible routing options: send your signals to either the integrated bus mixer or to direct outputs. Mix in stereo or surround

  • Streamlined user interface: use the advanced link modes to control multiple knobs or faders simultaneously and activate the "all" modes to control several instruments and/or instrument categories at once.

  • When "follow MIDI" is enabled, the selecting of instruments and/or articulations will follow the incoming MIDI notes.

The Articulations Page

  • drumasonic 2 provides mapping presets for several e-drum sets and all major drum software formats. 

  • Create and store custom mappings within minutes via the convenient mapping section. 

  • Comprehensive e-drum adjustability: set velocity, volume, pitch, panning, and modulations for every single drumpad/articulation.

  • BeaterControl™: Play with sticks, rods, and brushes, and switch your snare wires on or off for selected models via keyswitch and/or MIDI CC (e.g. sustain pedal). 

  • Use drumasonic's multi mapping features to assign several keys to a single articulation or to create unique layered sounds by triggering multiple sounds with a single key or drumpad. 

  • Deactivate unused articulations to reduce drumasonic's memory footprint.

The Effects Page

  • The integrated bus mixer might be the fastest and most efficient mixer you've ever worked with: select a bus, and its channel settings will appear instantly; touch an fx send knob and all relevant parameters are displayed automatically. No matter which detail you are working on, the "other end of the mixing desk" is just one single click away. 

  • Powerful link and "split link" modes allow you to adjust e.g. all your closemics' compressor thresholds with a single touch or to dampen high frequencies of all overhead, room, and trash microphones together. Don't be surprised if your drum mix is finished within less than 5 minutes: This was our intention.

  • drumasonic 2 provides up to 10 fully-equipped mix buses and a master bus with 4-band parametric EQ (pre/post dynamics), compressor, transient shaper, tape saturation, stereo width, balance, reverb and delay send per channel as well as a master limiter with up to 24dB gain boost. Every bus can be routed either to the master bus or to direct outputs.

  • Custom designed "kit resonance convolution reverb" presets: In addition to the complex miking and recorded ambience, you can dial in mic bleed and tom resonance to create an even fuller and more natural drum sound.

The Grooves Page

  • drumasonic 2 is shipping with a custom-recorded, production-ready groove library, covering a wide range of musical styles.

  • Unique realtime mapping converter: Import groove libraries from 3rd party manufacturers – no hassle with complicated mapping conversion – just select the source library format end press play. Done. 

  • Very musical and versatile groove modification engine: every drum loop – no matter if recorded, imported from a third party library or taken from the internal library – is automatically split into independent lanes, thereby making it possible to easily combine e.g. any bassdrum pattern with any hihat, cymbal, or percussion pattern from any of your groove libraries in your DAW. 

  • Integrated groove recorder plus customizable metronome: choose from a selection of your favourite click sounds, ranging from cowbell to the most popular electronic click sounds.

  • Drag & drop MIDI file export: drag your grooves into the arrangement window of your DAW.

"Really a great product! Especially the structure and setup of the tremendous variety of rooms and signals makes this product a must have!"
(Beverly Hills Cop, Billy Idol, Roy Black, The Pet Shop Boys, Jennifer Rush, Bonnie Tyler, ...)

"DRUMASONIC is an amazing drum tool! With very realistic basic sounds you're quickly getting to the point. With the straightforward and intuitive user interface, DRUMASONIC perfectly integrates into the creative workflow... and is fun!"
(Moby, Max Mutzke, Nevio, Pohlmann)

"These sound absolutely fantastic!!! Great job on the layout as well, very sweet to be able to switch so quickly. [...] Really, really impressive job guys!!!"
(Amirah, Nadia Ali, Cavalier King, Voice Of Addiction, ...)

"Just purchased today. With its purity and sound it blows away all the libraries I've tried or had: Steven Slate, OWD, Superior 2, Abbey Roads (though I really like the 60ies kit there)."
(Posted in: gearslutz.com)

"So i played with this last night and as a drummer I am blown away - it sounds amazing!! It will be my go to kit over abbey's modern drums for sure. [...] I would recommend this to anybody who uses drums, it's a great price, extremely customizable and sounds killer."
(Posted in: v.i.control)

"Don't miss out on this fantastic library. The tone of the library is superb, and I love all the scripting for the interface. The mapping capabilities and velocity fine-tuning is a huge plus for me, too. This library is a no-brainer: excellent, versatile tone, and awesome capabilities in the interface. I can tell already it's going to get a lot of use..."
(Posted in: v.i.control)

"Speaking as a drummer, this is truly one of the best samples of a drumset I've heard. And it runs on K4.2 with all those nifty functions! Totally cool price too, I can't wait to get my hands on that!"
(Posted in: v.i.control)

"Excellent sonic quality! [...] Very flexible & versatile (due to the flexible routing possibilties you can very well adjust each instrument/channel with your own EQs/plugins etc...) The flexibilty was at the same time a bit confusing for me first. Wonderful Kontakt 4 integration & excellent performance on my system. [...] Compared to the other Drum libs I have [...] Drumasonic are my favorite drums so far. [...] So all in all some awesome bang for the buck!"
(Posted in: v.i.control)

"I do like Abbey Road a lot, but this sounds kind of like Analogue Drums, which I LOVE. To have that kind of tweaking in Kontakt makes them very appealing."
(Posted in: v.i.control)

"Thank you guys....seriously the best drum sample!!!! I have the chance to make some quick test in demo mode...killer killer sound!!!!"
(Posted in: gearslutz.com)

"The actual sound is very impressive. [...] The drums have a lot of impact, especially the kick. The sound quality is pristine and the room mics, which you can dial in are very good sounding and quite usable. There is a lot of clarity. I felt that simply putting them into this rock tune took it to a higher level. I also like the fact that these sounds leave room for you to do your own compression and EQing."
(Posted in: gearslutz.com)

"I just wanted to come in and say how awesome these samples are! Really some of the best i've ever had compared to Toontrack, Slate etc. You really get the sparkle of the cymbals and the drums sound killer without the need for much processing. The interface is really simple to use and intuitive to getting the sounds as well."
(Posted in: gearslutz.com)

"Overall, I am very surprised at just how natural the whole thing sounds. I hated the feel of Superior 2.0, overall, for the drums but loved their cymbals. The Drumasonics kit sounds like it was recorded in a very nice local studio. There's nothing hyped or "surreal" about it and the drums seem to sit nicely in a mix and handle eq and compression very naturally."
(Posted in: gearslutz.com)

"I have just bought this library and i have to say; these are the best drumsamples i have ever heard, and i tried them all!!!!"
(Posted in: gearslutz.com)

"Wow just listened to these samples and they sound great!! I already own and use Addictive Drums, Superior 2.0, Jamstix 3 and most of the addon's expansions but these sound so much more real!!"
(Posted in: gearslutz.com)

"Wow! The audio demos are very impressive. The hi hats always give these libraries away, but this sounds really good and the price is right."
(Posted in: gearslutz.com)

"Finally got a chance to listen on my monitors today... pretty impressed."
(Posted in: gearslutz.com)

"Stunning how these drums sound - from Rock to RnB - drumasonic gives a boost to any project I am working on. The sounds are tight and the rooms sound real - Sonic Boom!"
(Posted in: email)

"Hi there, i just wanted to encourage you on this Drum Package - it really has added another dimension to my production and there is so much scope for different sounds in that the original sounds are unprocessed. Keep doing what you're doing; it's working :-)"
