VQstands for “Vintage Quality”. It’s a sample library for Kontakt 4 and above that features a 1964 Ludwig Hollywood kit recorded with 12 mics in a wooden studio. All recorded with 6 velocity layers and 6 round robin, resulting in 36 samples per articulation. All samples normalized to 0db so when a velocity ramp is applied it results in 128 volume steps, which gives a very natural response from the keyboard or e-drum. This is, by far, the most complex library that I’ve ever done and it’s also the best sounding kit that I’ve ever heard. It features a great sounding vintage drum kit recorded with great sounding mics and preamps in a great sounding studio with a nice interface and state of the art scripting implementing pioneer features. It’s really hard to get it better.
