Comprehensive Microphone Bleed Control

Each kit sports around 50dB of dynamic range, which offers a great deal of musicality. MAD’s signal flow design gives you full control over audio leakage (microphone bleed) from almost every microphone perspective. This unprecedented control brings a new level of realism and nuance to drums sound.

Deeply Sampled to the Extreme

3 Complete Drum kits with a total of 20GB and 24,000+ samples. Up to 20 velocity layers, numerous articulation per drum element, unique release samples, legato transitions, and 4X Round Robin samples throughout!

Extensive Hi-Hat Engine

The Hi-Hat engine features various articulations and 6 degrees of Close-To-Open modulation. The auto foot pedal and Legato transitions help you to easily switch between playing zones and apply real-time modulation. The variable attack and velocity curves add the final touch for an unsurpassed Hi Hat action.

Flexible Mixing Architecture

Rocknfunk includes an ergonomic mixing environment of up to 14 individual microphone perspectives including EQ, Sends/Returns, and custom bussing.

Highly Playable

The kits are effortless to play.
We’ve implemented extended articulations featuring special playing techniques, Left/Right hand samples, multiple playing zones, and combination strokes.
Other playability features include: automatic note overlap prevention, an extensive Hi Hat engine, and a variable velocity setup.

Legato Snare Grace Notes, Cymbal Chokes, and Note Overlap Prevention

MAD features an ergonomic key mapping and articulation layout. Snare grace notes are triggered automatically by playing legato eliminating unnecessary bloat to the mapping. Same goes to cymbal chokes where you can choke any individual cymbal from one key.

Since we’ve included dedicated Left and Right hand samples, the engine disallows impossible note overlaps keeping your performance clean and real!

Realistic Extended Dynamic Range

MAD features Drum kits with an authentic extended dynamic range. The top velocities are at the point of stick-breaking power!
By utilizing a strict playing style, we achieved a powerful dynamic range without losing touch with the musicality of the instrument.

THE INSTRUMENTS

Each of the three included kits is unique and offers a great deal of timbre contrast. We recorded each kit in a different space to further extend versatility of sound. Each recording space has inspired us with different recording techniques, microphone selection, and playing styles.

We then developed custom scripts and a user interface that is deep, yet straightforward and easy to use. The outcome is collection of drum kits that offers a detailed and organic sound that will enhance any music style.
