Each of these instruments has been sampled with multiple microphones in an extremely "live" sounding stone room. For each, you can adjust the mixture of ambience to include both room-miked and close-miked samples — this means you can add that same kind of dynamic atmosphere and punch to your playing.
The drums are mapped using an extended General MIDI mapping so you can mix-and-match kit elements from the Hugh Padgham Drums collection with elements from other SampleTank factory drum kits or from other drum-centric SampleTank instruments collections like the Neil Peart or Terry Bozzio kits.
