Remember the drum sound of Phil Collins' smash hit “In the Air Tonight”? They have massive amounts of atmosphere and reverb, but they also manage to retain their clarity, punch, and aggressiveness. Hugh Padgham engineered that sound, and now you can have it. Hugh Padgham Drums gives you access to his unique sound which has been featured on works by Genesis, Peter Gabriel, The Human League, Abba's Frida Lyngstad, and countless other '80s hitmakers.In addition to these synth sounds, you also get 150 MIDI patterns that have been programmed by IK’s resident team of expert dance music engineers to help kick start your creativity and set you on the path towards your next big hit.
Hugh Padgham Drums gives you 27 multi-velocity and round-robin drum kit instruments: You get 2 kick drums, 2 snare drums, 6 toms, 5 cymbals and a whole assortment of hi-hats. Each of these instruments has been sampled with multiple microphones in an extremely "live" sounding stone room. For each, you can adjust the mixture of ambience to include both room-miked and close-miked samples — this means you can add that same kind of dynamic atmosphere and punch to your playing.
The drums are mapped using an extended General MIDI mapping so you can mix-and-match kit elements from the Hugh Padgham Drums collection with elements from other SampleTank 3 factory drum kits or from other drum-centric SampleTank 3 instruments collections available in the Custom Shop like the Neil Peart or Terry Bozzio kits.
In addition to the sounds, you also get 240 MIDI patterns inspired by Hugh's classic works.
These patterns have been programmed by IK's team of experts to inspire new on-the-spot percussive ideas.
And while it's sonic palette is ideal for rock and pop arrangements, Hugh Padgham Drums' adjustable mic mix means that it's sounds are also a great fit for metal, EDM, film score music and a whole lot more.
