Music Making Software

Bluenoise Plugins unveils Drummix Metal 1, a VST drum instrument for Windows.

"The drum kit used for Drummix Metal 1 is a Tama Artstar 2; one of the 25 copies of Lars Ulrich’s famous Black Album tour drums! This is the holy grail of metal drum kits with 6 toms, 2 kick drums and loads of cymbals. Metal 1 is recorded in a medium ambience room, but with additional microphones in a huge space next door to bring out that big metal sound we like. It comes with several different kick and snare samples because we know how important those instrument are in this genre.

The plugin has outputs for every microphone recorded so you can mix the drums like a real drum kit. We created these plugins because we felt the acoustic drum plugins available on the market all sounded very polished and premixed. This is not the case with our Drummix plugin. These drum kits were recorded with excellent microphones from brands such as  Neumann, AKG, Coles, Beyerdynamic, Shure and many more. They were professionally engineered through mic pres from Universal Audio, Neve, TLA, AMEK and Elberg into 24 bit RME converters and Nuendo. The next process would be mixing, but we left that up to you and this is actually one of the greatest benefits of these plugins.
The plugin comes both in stereo for a quick setup and in a multiple output version. In the multiple output version all the different microphones are sent out to 12 different physical outputs in your DAW. This way you can mix the drums just like a real recorded drum kit. Add EQ, compression and reverb to taste. Go for hi-fi or low-fi sound or even remove some of the microphones to make it sound completely different.  The effects you have in your DAW are usually much better than the ones inside a drum plugin, so why not use those."

Price: $50 USD
