Native Instruments Kontakt 5 – Full Version (Standalone, VST, AAX, AU)
The latest full version of Kontakt (22.214.171.124) is required. The free Kontakt player is NOT officially supported.
Massey DRT 2 (Full Version)
DRT 2 is a non-realtime drum replacer that reads timbre and velocity information of a drum performance to generate MIDI or print samples. The full version of DRT is required for use with our pre-configured DRT stacks.
All kit pieces are included as 44.1 KHz .wav files. Through the use of these files, our samples are compatible with virtually every hardware and software sampler. The files are non-normalized, preserving the original playing dynamics and allowing for flexibility in programming.
The MIDI grooves for the J.M. Signature Series Drum Sample Library were performed by Matt Greiner (August Burns Red) and Joe Longobardi (Defeater). The grooves are organized modularly by tempo so that you can use the component parts to quickly build the structure of your drum performance.
