Room Sound has released Jay Maas Signature Series Drums Lite Edition, a freely downloadable acoustic drum kit sample library for Kontakt Player by Native Instruments.
The Lite Edition of the Jay Maas Signature Series Drums sound library contains seven kit pieces (one kick, one snare, two toms, one crash, one ride, and one pair of hats) from the full version of the product. It features twelve mixer channels with built-in effects and customizable MIDI mappings. The user interface also provides direct access to individual kit piece tunings, envelope, and a variety other more advanced performance controls.
Unlike most freely downloadable Kontakt sample libraries, Jay Maas Signature Series Drums Lite Edition is fully compatible with the freeware Kontakt Player. It doesn’t require the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt. Most other libraries will only work in demo mode when loaded in Kontakt Player.
Coming from the sampling experts at Room Sound, it’s no surprise that Jay Maas Signature Series Drums sound very good. The recording quality is great and there are plenty of velocity layers to ensure that the drums sound natural when played via MIDI. The free version of the library is simply a must-download if you produce rock or pop music.
To download your free copy of the library, click the Add To Cart button on the product page linked below and choose the Lite version in the pop-up window. A valid email address is required to complete the checkout process and receive the download link. Be sure to install the latest version of Kontakt Player to be able to load the library. You can use Kontakt Player in standalone mode and as a VST or AU plugin in all compatible digital audio workstations.
Jay Maas Signature Series Drums Lite Edition is available for free download via Room Sound (507 MB download size, ZIP archive, contains 1 sound library for Kontakt Player).
