    What makes Luminous Drums different?

    Luminous Drums was created to address the shortcomings of commercially available drum sample libraries: not enough velocity layers, inconsistent sound, poor tuning, inflexible micing, and not enough useful sounds.

    We put extra work into tuning and playing technique to emulate the sound of world-class drummers. Each drum has multiple variations of tuning and muting, careful matching between LH and RH, and around 64 velocity layers for each variation. The dynamic response is VERY smooth and consistent. The snare drums have a huge number of variations and rim shots, far beyond any other library. As a bonus, we include LH traditional grip for some drums, and a kit with two variations of tea towels.

    The hats have up to 12 variations for tip and 9 variations for side, LH and RH, from tightly closed to fully open. For pedal control with real-time cross-fading between variations, we include a Kontakt version (hats only, requires full version 5 or later).

    Luminous Drums was originally made for Reaper and ported to TX16Wx. The process was greatly sped up by the fully documented XML instrument format, which allows text-based editing. TX16Wx is a great product and it really saved the day!

    We also came up with a technique to create custom tempo maps with the feel of a real drummer. Your drum programming will never be the same! Tutorial video:
