Monotown - Kontakt Edition
Feel the funk and do it anyway
Inspired by the drums of Motown, Stax and sweet R'n'B from yesteryear comes Monotown. It will drive home the beat to old school funk, soul, rhythm and blues. It'll also fit the bill for current indy and pop where organic production qualities are desired.
Five individually controllable mic perspectives let you dial the sound between 60s, 70s, trashy, indy or anything in between.
The kit sampled is a vintage 1970s Rogers USA-made "Big R" maple, with vintage '60s Zildjian and Paiste cymbals, and tambourines. The kit comes with two switchable snare options - Rogers Dynasonic and Ludwig Supraphonic, and two tambourine options.
And one more thing... it's in mono.
