TrapKit | A Vintage Ludwig, Multisampled


TrapKit is a vintage 1960’s Ludwig drum set recorded in a large reflective room with a vast array of microphones. It has been painstakingly programmed as an Ableton Live Pack, Kontakt Instrument and Logic Library.

This sample set includes the original Ludwig Kick Drum, Rack and Floor Toms along with a well matched Snare drum, Zildjian Hi-Hats, Sabian Crash Cymbal and hand-hammered Zildjian Ride Cymbal.

All drums and cymbals were recorded with various articulations using both close mics and overhead mics. Multi-channel mixing, and non-repetitive sample triggering make TrapKit an extremely realistic and thoroughly musical sample set.
