Advanced Drum Series Ragnarok Kit For Kontakt VST-AU-AAX overview

The RAGNAROK addition to our drum series is one of the hardest hitting drum kits ever sampled, containing over 37,000 samples and featuring a custom designed Ludwig Kit played by a world renowned metal artist.

RAGNAROK was engineered to perfection by Taylor Larson (Oceanic Studios / Periphery) and contains 10 individual microphone positions for ultimate mixing flexibility. You have individual microphones for kick drum, snares, hi-hats, cymbals, toms and dedicated overhead, room and custom distortion. The user-interface is highly intuitive and flexible – designed for both beginners and pros.

RAGNAROK is our third library to utilize our flow-note technology. One of the challenges with normal drum sampling is that elements like hats and cymbals artificially stack upon each other. In reality a cymbal doesn’t stack. It partially mutes when its hit again, while also carrying some sound from the previous hit. We call this technology, flow-note.

RAGNAROK contains over 37,000 samples and 25,000 lines of custom code taking the playability and realism to the next level.

RAGNAROK is powered by the powerful Kontakt engine allowing for ultimate flexibility and effective streaming. RAGNAROK also contains features for advanced users, including ability to choose individual FX pr. microphone position. Ability to send each channel to separate output and remapping tools. The entire user-interface was designed in 3D and is incredible intuitive to use.

But most importantly RAGNAROK just works. It sounds completely real out of the box and doesn’t take a drum engineer or rocket scientist to operate. The flow-note technology makes everything connect. The mixer allows you to dial in your desired sound in seconds.

RAGNAROK is all about hyper-realistic sound – playability and ease of use.

Hyper Realism & 3D UI

RAGNAROK is all about hyper realistic metal drumming. The library contains over 37,000 samples and 10 individual microphones. But we also wanted the visual and functional side of the library to rock your world. The RAGNAROK user-interface (UI) was all designed in 3D and built around functionality. The front part of the interface allows you to instantly choose any drum of your choice and adjust its volume, pan, tuning, attack and release just with a few clicks. We also built in all the presets, so you can go through them with just one click.

Mixer & Microphones

RAGNAROK contains a highly intuitive and flexible mixer page. The mixer allows you to control all the microphone positions (Kick, Snare Top, Snare Bottom , Hats, Rack, Floor, Cymbals, Overheads, Room & Trsh). Each microphone position can be routed to an individual output and each position has its own pan and reverb amount setting. In addition you can adjust FX elements (Spread, EQ, Compression, LOFI) individually for EACH microphone. Its super easy, but really allows you to sculpt your kit to perfection. In addition you can load/unload (purge) any microphone position at any time. RAGNAROK also comes with a bunch of custom convolution reverbs, which allows you color your kit even more and it all just works. Whether you are a beginner or an expert – you have it all at your finger tips.
