Sampler Engine

KVLT Drums 2 will feature our most advanced sampler-engine covering numerous round robins and velocity layers that will ensure the most realistic virtual drumming experience. Advanced scripting combined with our dynamic sampling technique will ensure that you won’t get that machine-gun robotic effect out of this one.

Interface & Mixing Features

The graphic user interface allows you to process the kit individually or in groups. You can adjust gain, pan & individual mic levels per each and every drum. Meaning that you can nail the perfect blend of close mics, adjust the levels for overheads, room & FX channels. Total control over every channel.

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!

Mic Features:
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.

Close Mics:
Snare & shells: SM57 (1073 & Aural Exciter)
Cymbals: U47 FET (G9 & 55B)
Kick: SM57 & U47 FET

Midimap editor
The Hell Mic:
This channel is the glue to make the kit sound even tighter together. Placed flat on the floor and compressed to death, The Hell Mic unites the kit.
Hell Mic: SM57 (Distressor, Limiter)

The Trash Mic:
If the Hell Mic is bringing the glue, the Trash Mic is bringing the grit. Bringing up those nasty overtones and that 4-track demo feel. Blend it in to get nice distorted harmonics or let this one dominate for Pure Fucking Armageddon.
Trash Mic: Unknown Talkback Mic (1073 & EQ)

Overheads:
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.
Overhead Mics: Stereo Pair of KM184’s (V72 & 1084)

Room Mics:
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.
Room Mic: Stereo Pair of 76’s (G9, 670, 55B)

Output routing presets

KVLT Drums II Comes with 16 output channels to your audio editor for maximum mixing versatility. But sometimes it gets just too complex for the purpose. Output routing presets are here to help. Just need 1 single stereo output? Need to have Shells and Cymbals separated? It's all super easy!

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!

Adjustable Midinotes

There's 2 ways in KVLT Drums II To adjust midinotes.

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.

Save & Load your own Presets

You can save presets outside audio editor and even share them, but most importantly, to ease workflow. With dynamic loading you can select what to import, which makes for example, loading just a midinote map for your e-kit super easy, or loading the chosen samples but keeping everything else untouched to test different combinations for your mix.

KVLT Drums II

Brutal tone for brutal music, no cheap-ass plastic ping-pong.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Can I create my own beats? If not, can I upload the sounds into Fruity Loops 20 to create my own beats?

    Hello!

    You can create your own beats on FL or any other audio software's miditrack and then playback the midi into KVLT Drums II. :) Sounds are packaged into the plugin so can't upload them separately.

    - Toni

  • Can you track your own drums using an electronic kit?

    Hello! Definitely! :) Electronic Kits can have different midimaps but in KVLT Drums II there's midinote mapping settings so you can adjust the notes to fit each drum correctly. Some e-kits send CC messages for hihat control (open/closed), unfortunately CC messages are not yet supported but we're working on a solution. -Toni
