Musical Sampling - Boutique Drums Ruby KONTAKT (Dec 2020)

Ruby is the first release in our Boutique Drums series. We've consulted our drummer Brian Skoggin (Casting Crowns), who has prepared a set of really exclusive drum parts for this release. We also decided to record at Hey Hey Studios in Griffin, Georgia due to its outstanding acoustics and engineering; a wonderful space providing a tastefully balanced space and character.

Each of the eight mixes was created from the ground up using an arsenal of processing tools, both hardware and software. We decided to develop presets outside of Kontakt to get what we felt was an accurate mix with just the right amount of punch, balance and vibration, while still providing enough headroom for additional processing.

Under the hood, Ruby alternates between two different sets of hi-hat / ride multisamples; depending on how quickly you hit successive notes for a given articulation. The first press starts a single sample, while the next press starts repeated samples.

We've included five different hi-hat states of multisamples and live eighth-note grooves that automatically sync with the tempo of your DAW: tight, normal, slightly open, mid-open, and fully open; The grooves are recorded at 90/120/140 bpm.

We also think we have developed hi-hat grooves with crossfade release triggers. When the mod wheel is down, the loop will play in its tightest hi-hat state. When you place the mod wheel up, the hi-hat opens. It's pretty damn cool.
