XLN Modern Jazz Drums [CRACKED]
XLN Modern Jazz Drums: A Review
If you are looking for a realistic and versatile drum library for modern jazz production, you might want to check out XLN Modern Jazz Drums. This collection includes two ADpaks: Modern Jazz Sticks and Modern Jazz Brushes, each featuring a Premier Gen-X kit played with sticks or brushes respectively. The kits are recorded at Soundtrade Studios in Stockholm, a renowned facility for jazz recording.
Modern Jazz Sticks offers a crisp and punchy sound, with tuned up toms and a tight kick. The snare has a nice snap and the cymbals are bright and clear. The kit is very responsive and dynamic, allowing you to play subtle nuances or powerful accents. You can also adjust the room tone and the tuning of each drum to suit your taste.
Modern Jazz Brushes adds a smooth and classy touch to your jazz tracks, with realistic brushing sounds on the snare. The RealSweep technology allows you to create natural sounding sweeps and circles, as well as accents without interrupting the motion of the brushes. The kit has a warm and mellow tone, with soft beater on the kick and a vintage Ludwig Acrolite snare. The cymbals are rich and dark, perfect for creating atmospheric textures.
Both ADpaks come with production-ready presets that cover different styles and moods of modern jazz, from cool to hard bop to swing. You can also tweak the presets or create your own using the Addictive Drums 2 engine. The collection also includes two MIDIpaks with grooves and fills played by professional jazz drummers. You can use them as inspiration or drag and drop them into your DAW.
XLN Modern Jazz Drums is a great choice for anyone who wants to add some authentic jazz flavor to their music. The kits are well-recorded, expressive and easy to use. The presets and MIDI files are also very useful and high-quality. Whether you are a jazz aficionado or just want to spice up your tracks with some jazzy drums, you will find something to love in this collection.
One of the highlights of XLN Modern Jazz Drums is the RealSweep technology, which simulates the natural movement of the brushes on the snare drum. RealSweep allows you to control the speed, direction and intensity of the sweeps and circles, as well as add accents and hits without breaking the flow. You can also switch between different patterns and styles of brushing with a single keyswitch. RealSweep gives you a realistic and expressive way to play jazz drums with brushes.
Another feature of XLN Modern Jazz Drums is the flexibility and customization of the kits. You can mix and match different drums and cymbals from both ADpaks, as well as use any of the other kits and sounds from Addictive Drums 2. You can also adjust the tuning, damping, envelope, EQ, compression and distortion of each drum, as well as the level, pan, width and reverb of each microphone. You can also dial in the amount of room tone and ambience to create different sonic spaces for your drums.
XLN Modern Jazz Drums is compatible with most major DAWs and supports VST, AU and AAX formats. You can use it as a standalone application or as a plugin in your DAW. You can also use it with any MIDI controller or electronic drum kit that supports MIDI. You can map the drums and cymbals to any MIDI note or CC number, as well as customize the velocity curve and sensitivity of each drum. You can also use the built-in groove editor to create your own beats or edit the MIDI files. ec8f644aee
