24-bit Drums (Funk, Jazz & Recording Kits)
The Beat Shop Two kits were meticulously sampled through a complete range of playable velocities using eight microphones, tube preamps and pristine 24-bit ADCs. These close and overhead samples were then mixed for each individual drum to obtain optimal punch and room ambience. Each kit is comprised of up to five layers for unmatched realism and expression. These are real drums in real rooms, played by real drummers.
The Beat Shop Two grooves were performed by world class drummers in professional studios. E-MU’s sound designers then broke the grooves down into their various rhythmic components and looped them at the same tempo, providing an almost infinite variety or rhythmic combinations. Beat Shop two also provides presets that combine grooves and a drum kit on the same keymap, allowing you to play hits together with the grooves. The grooves can also be modulated using the Emulator’s extensive PatchCord matrix.
The front panel knob functions are standardized for most of the factory presets. Match the MIDI controller numbers corresponding to the knobs on your MIDI keyboard to the real-time controller assignments in the Preferences menu to control these important functions.
