There are additional tom articulations (flams and rimshots) in the top octave and additional snare and hat articulations in the bottom octave. There are multiple velocities and "round robin" alternating samples for added realism. The SampleTank 3 ConvoRoom effect includes samples of the actual studio space where the drums were recorded, so you can dial in the ambience exactly as you want it.

Hard Alpha Bass
A delightfully distorted sawtooth wave bass with "Reese"-style detuning and keyed portamento ready to rule the groove of your next electronic track. An aggressive tone with tons of presence and a mighty low end punch. Whether alone with just a kick drum or deep inside a dense production, this bass will never get lost in a crowd.
Pulse Sub Bass
This square wave bass is filtered down to nearly a sine wave shape to get the whole house moving with its powerful, earth-shaking lows. Put this bass under a snappy, percussive arrangements to fill out the bottom end with the fullness and tonal purity that only a clear, low synth tone like this can deliver.
9 MIDI Patterns included.
Two middle eastern dumbek "goblet drums," one Turkish with the edge of the drum head exposed and the other Egyptian style with a rounded edge. The word dumbek comes from the Arabic word, "darba," meaning "to strike." The dumbek is played with the hands, usually holding the drum under one arm. It is a bright, percussive drum that changes its tone with different dynamic hits, and our SampleTank 3 collection provides numerous hits with "round robin" alternate samples for added realism.
3 MIDI Patterns included.
