FREE Kontakt drum library | DS Drum - RCS Essentials (by Red Pack Drums) 'Dream Kit' e-drum FIX 😊👉

...ok, now the Red Pack Drums free Lib : WOW, this thing is huge!!! - propably the most powerful free drum library I've ever seen ❗. Tons of samples ( -> layer/round robin details) + even a 'wires-off' snare articulation and an 'AutoRimshot' snare engine is provided by default, ... and tons of sound options (i.e. mic channels + audio FX). Props to Jonathan and RedPackDrums 🙂.

Now here comes the 'DreamKit' for e-drums:


Hihat : significantly increased Pedal "Chick" volume ;
Hihat : increased 'BOW' ( -> 'Tip Tight' & 'Tip Closed') articulation volume ;
( Hihat : Roland TD-17 / TD-11 (and similar) Hihat Pedal CC range adaption )

CUSTOM hihat curve :
Detailed custom hihat pedal translation (by CC value remapping) -> YOU decide what pedal position will trigger a certain hihat open-closed stage.
...and skip stages of your choice if you don't want them! (i.e. assumed you want the "Closed" stage instead of the "Tight" stage at fully closed pedal position) ;

additional Variable Hihat Feature: Consistently controllable 2-closed-stages Variable Hihat for e-drummers 👉 LINK

removing buggy samples : all samples with noises like voices (there are some of those funny culprits 🥴...)

additional advanced Snare fix feature: Snare Engine toggle in order to switch between the provided 'Auto Rimshot' articulation (which introduces an adjustable dynamical 'CenterHit'↔'Rimshot' splitting on the pad's head zone -> nice for certain louder musical situations)
the normal default Snare state ( = 'Center Hit' articulation is on the pad's head zone and 'Rimshots' (also possible with a dynamically triggered 'Rimshot'↔'SideStick' splitting) on the rim zone.

So switch (by pad hit) during a song/drum performance after your current musical needs! 🙂 ;

additional Snare FIX feature: Snare Drum Throw Off Switch 👉 LINK

introducing (advanced) Cymbal Choking : choke all RedPackDrums DS Drum-RCS Essentials Crashes / Chinas / Splashes with any of your cymbal pads ❗️😊 ;

Ride : significantly increased Ride 'BOW' ( -> 'Ping'!) articulation volume (as the 'Bell' and the 'Edge' are so much louder) ;

Double Bass Drum sound for single Kick Pads :
play a DoubleBassDrum sound with alternating Kick sounds (the second Kick will sound slightly diffrent in order to achieve an authentic DoubbleBass sound/feel and to avoid machinegunning) and toggle the kick drum engine (default Single-Sound vs. advanced engine Double-Sound) after your musical needs during a song (by dedicated toggle pad hit) 👍👉 LINK ;

introducing detailed Velocity curves on single kit pieces/articulations = separated dynamical translation of single articulations (including 'Gate' and 'Ceiling' settings)
- example for separated settings within one kit piece : adjusting the 'Hihat Pedal Chick' independently from the 'Hihat Tip' and 'Hihat Edge' articulations
adjusting the 'Ride (Ping)' vel curve independently from the 'Ride Bell' or 'Ride Crash' articulation.

adding TOMS (i.e. an additional lower pitched FloorTom or a Left FloorTom) ;

adding a (right (for right-handers)) X-Hat (as it increases pleasure of playing so much and provides a varied hihat sound!) ;

adding (the second available RPD DS Drum-RCS Essentials snare drum as a Side Snare) ;

adding further Cymbals (which are of course also chokeable 👌) -> i.e. a second Splash / a second China / more Crashes + maybe a second Ride) ;

adjusting & improving kit PANNING for Toms & Hihat(s) & Ride(s)

-- supported DAWs: "Reaper" , "Cubase Artist/Pro" , "Logic Pro" , "Bidule" , "AbletonLive Suite"
(+ any DAW that can host 'Bidule' as a VST(3) or AU plugin)

The Red Pack Drums freeware library works in the Kontakt Free Player now - so a Kontakt license is no longer needed. 😊
