Metal is an interesting material. On the one hand, you can hit it to create a sharp attack and barely any release. But on the other hand, you can tap it and get a long, rattly sound. That is the concept for the Metal Can Drums library: to provide a set of metal drums that give you the best of both worlds. The library comes with 8 round robin, 7-8 velocity layers, 33 different types of hits from 4 different types of cans and custom scripting, including a custom-made arpeggiator.
The arpeggiator works as you might guess how an arp would work: you hold down the notes and it’ll run through them for you in whatever pattern you’ve chosen, using the options available. What sets ours apart is a number of rhythmic options that help create much more interesting patterns, such as the ability to choose between static (new notes are played separate to the arp) or dynamic (new notes are added to the arp) and adaptive (pattern halts when a note of 0 velocity is in the sequencer) or non-adaptive (pattern continues, regardless of gaps in the sequencer).
