MT Power Drum Kit 2


The MT Power Drum Kit is a new drum sampler offering the powerful, high-quality sounds of an acoustic, realistic drum kit. Samples have been specially recorded and processed to make them ideally suited to use in pop, rock and metal productions. 

The MT Power Drum Kit Sampler differs from other, expensive drum samplers in that we have already pre-processed the sounds with compressors and EQs to make them a perfect fit for any mix. That’s important, since this is precisely where many drum sample programs are weakest. Some of the expensive plugins available on the market deliver a highly natural and dynamic drum kit sound as a solo instrument, but many fail as soon as they are supposed to be used for a complete mix in a powerful pop or rock production. Either the kick drum suddenly sounds much too slack or fuzzy in the mix, or the snare drum, which initially sounds so natural and dynamic, in solo mode suddenly gets lost in the background in the overall mix, drowned out by the guitars and other instruments. But this is exactly where the MT Power Drum Kit is strongest. Its kick and snare drums come through clearly in any mixing situation – and still sound natural and not overly compressed. 

The compressors built into the channels give you even more control of the level of compression. You can choose from thousands of assorted rhythms in the comprehensive Groove Library and compose your own drum accompaniment. In particular, the innovative functions for creating fills generate very smooth and realistic drum tracks (see video). 

Because we used high-quality cymbals and microphones for the recordings, the crash, ride and hi-hat cymbals sound especially refined and pleasant at various velocities. 

As early as during microphoning of the set and recording of individual samples, we took great care to replicate realistic circumstances. Although doing so is almost impossible, we broke with tradition in sample recording, which calls for capturing every sound individually; instead, we had our drummer feed in various beats. Then, we cut most of the necessary sounds out of the beat, in various velocities, and processed them to deliver as realistic a drumbeat as possible. This is especially clear with our hi-hat samples, for instance. On the right-hand side, you can listen to demo tracks for an impression of the results.

    Sounds really good :D Demo version is just that, limited to 2 midi imports per session and get this "Demo Version" voice over every minute or so. Looking into buying the full version myself.

    thank you LOOPERMAN for this forum section

    I successfully installed the Manda drum kit on my macbook - and now can not locate it on my hard drive .
    does Manda assign its software to an unexpected folder ?

    was really looking forward to trying out the drums (:

    Impossible for me to go to , my antivirus (Bitdefender) blocks the page, saying it is unsure...

    I used a friend's computer to download the plugin and installed the files in my VST folder.
    The plugin crashes Reaper each time I try to use it (BEX error)...

    Please, somebody could help me? I use a PC running with Vista 32-bits.

    Thanks for the info, I have it and started using it in FL Studio 12.0.2 and as they mention on the site there's no drag and drop so does anyone know how to drag and drop or any other way to get the groove into the playlist of FL STUDIO 12.0.2? It looks like a great program and works fine so far but I need a way to get what I build into the playlist. I'm open to any ideas at all although I'm really hoping it'll be easy and still have everything going through the built in mixer for the drums.

    Drag and drop is not working with FL, iam also trying nothing works. Only way thats works for me, used Mulab free, drag and drop the MTseq in it and export as midi. Now u can use it in FL.

    Wow. This is fantastic, especially for free. Has a nice full mixer, so I can balance the grooves. You can play freehand, or select from hundreds of grooves and fills, showing the BPM. I couldn't find it on my hard drive either, but it didn't matter, because I was able to locate it in Garageband and open it. The sound is great, but, for me, having that mixer attached and hundreds of preplayed rhythms as well, makes this an awesome addition to my Garageband collection! Thank you!

    So far with this for what I need I think I could have saved the money I used to buy EZ Drummer.
