Interface & Mixing Features
Drum panels makes it organized and allows free control on panel placement and also ables you to choose to see and adjust only the drums you need to adjust not coggle the entire window with dozens of buttons and knobs which you don't really always need. Organizing buttons on the bottom bar (open all, close all, position in grid, open mix/FX/Routing tab for all) Makes handling large amounts of panels a breeze for mixing and setup!
To ensure full control over each and every channel, KVLT Drums II was captured with multiple close mics, FX mics along with Overheads & Room Channels.

The 1980's was all about gated reverb so on the Hell Mic, the legendary "Talkback
Gated Reverb" trick was applied and this gives the drums that rad snap reverb effect.

The Trash Mic:
Trash Mic was used as an extra Room Channel. If you want up and close room sound without much of the reverb, use the Trash Mic as your main Room mic.

Overheads is the crucial element to each and every drum sound. Some like to get the full picture out of Overheads while some like to carve out the lows and let it sparkle in the highs. We gave you the fullest, yet brightest possible starting point for Overhead sound so regardless of your approach, you are one-step closer in nailing a good Overhead sound.

Room Channel captured the small yet punchy sound of the brand new Soundstakk Studios. Nulled away from the kit, the room mics added weight and depth into the drums. With added Plate reverb the small yet tight room ended up sounding way bigger.

Output routing presets
But if you are like us and sometimes want to dive deep, it's possible!
For example you could compress only the toms and add some reverb. Need to add some saturation on the Cymbals or Snare? You got it. Multiband-compress your entire room channel? Done. Want to go totally whacky and mix different mics without any restrictions with each other and the add FX on your audio edtor? That's possible too! Free multi output routing is incredibly flexible when doing pro mixes and going all nuts!
First one is on the individual drum panels, which makes it easy to see which note is for which drum / cymbal (hihat Closed / Pedal / Open etc).
The other one is midimap editor which allows you to see all the midinotes on one matrix and adjust them at once, and also load different midimap presets to match some major drum sample libraries and midipacks.
Midieditor also shows played midinotes so it helps you to map your midinotes, for example, with an electronic drumkit that often times doesn't follow any standard for notes.
