  • my GGD "Invasion" ; "P4" ; "M&M" ; "HalpernSig./P3" dream kit FIXes

    Say hello to the GGD "MODERN & MASSIVE" dream kit FIX
    (a "Modern & Massive" kit does not feature many kit pieces by default. So the e-drumming fun may be significantly increased by adding more kit pieces!...)


    Features:

    ∙ Hihat : Variable CC Hihat FIXED: adjustable stage levels + open sound issue when closing quite softly.
    (the issues: 1.: when using the Variable Hihat ("CC") you won't be able to tweak the level of single/certain stages/articulations by default. So I've fixed this! Very important fix as in many cases you will want to get a closed articulation louder or soften an Open one)
    2.: if you close the hihat quite softly it won't stop instantaneously by default -> same issue like on "P4" then, getting a kind of fade out range ). This is fixed now!
    ;

    ∙ Snare : separated CENTER <-> RIMSHOT ( + Sidestick) --> the high velocity CENTER sounds will be played when hitting hard ( = no Rimshots on the center head) <-> the Rimshots will be available on the snare pad's rim (also the "Sidestick" with a velocity border, if you like)
    You can also decide to keep some of the lower Rimshot stages within the main center snare (on high vel strokes) and only outsource the loudest Rimshots to the rim of the snare pad. ;

    ∙ Cymbal Choking : you will be able to choke all the Cym sounds (except the Ride sound) by choking any of your crash cym pads (even choking the hihat can achieve this if you like). The Ride pad will exclusively choke the Ride sound and won't affect Crashes/Splashes/Chinas ;

    ∙ adding two (!) (a second and a third one) TomToms + adding a left Floor Tom (so you can have the Tom setup similar to the INVASION kit) ;

    adding a second Snare or call it Side Snare (as you deserve a second Snare and a rich in variety drumsound!) ;

    adding a (right (for right-handers)) X-HAT!! (as it increases pleasure of playing so much and provides a varied hihat sound!) ;

    Double Bassdrum Sound:
    play a DoubleBassdrum feel (like the INVASION kit) with alternating Kick sounds (the second Kick will sound slightly diffrent in order to avoid machinegunning) ;

    adding two more Crash cymbals (one additional Crash on the left side and one on the right side), thus using all the Crash cymbals that M&M provides);

    adding a second Ride cymbal (i.e. an additional "Heavy Bell Ride" sound is so much fun!), thus using all the Ride cymbals that M&M provides ;

    adding one more China (and invert its panning, incl. OH/Room)! (though actually only one China is available in M&M by default) ;

    adding one more Splash (and invert its panning, incl. OH/Room)! (though actually only one Splash is available in M&M by default) ;

    Say hello to the GGD "INVASION" dream kit FIX
    (an INVASION kit can feature so much more...!)

    Features:
    ∙ Hihat : integrated EDGE + fixed open sound issue (the issue: if you close it it won't stop instantly by default) ;

    ∙ Snare : seperated CENTER <-> RIMSHOT ( + Sidestick) --> the ingeniously sounding high velocity CENTER sounds will be played when hitting hard ( = no Rimshots on the center head) <-> the Rimshots will be available on the snare pad's rim (also the "Sidestick" with a velocity border, if you like)
    You can also decide to keep some of the lower Rimshot stages within the main center snare (on high vel strokes) and only outsource the loudest Rimshots to the rim of the snare pad. ;

    ∙ Cymbal Choking : you will be able to choke all the Cym sounds (except the Ride sound) - even the 2 BellCyms - by choking any of your crash cym pads (even choking the hihat can achieve this if you like). The Ride pad will exclusively choke the Ride sound and won't affect Crashes/Splashes/Chinas/Stacks/Bells. ;

    adding a second Snare or call it Side Snare (such a big kit like INVASION defintitely deseves a second snare!!!) ;

    adding OPEN-CLOSED functionality to the right hats!!! --> play one pad featuring the closed articulation (no matter what the controller foot does) and a second pad where you'll have the OPEN-CLOSED feature like on your main hihat (that means you'll be able to play 2 different hihats in open-closed mode with one foot controller! This can achieve soooooo much sound!! (here is an example I formerly did with Toontrack Samplers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptcPtA6Tmxw ) ;

    adding one (or more: up to all available) more of the "Stack" sounds (as they are sooo cool!) ;

    adding 2 more Splashes!! ;

    adding 2 more Chinas!! ;

    choose and mix and set up the crash cymbal arsenal the way you like (for example you want to play both crashes which by default are only available on 1 slot) ;

    Double Bassdrum Sound:
    making DoubleBassdrum feel available (irrespectively of "Auto Double Kick" ("ADK") / permanently working / independent of speed) --> play a DoubleBassdrum feel with alternating Kick sounds (the second Kick will sound slightly diffrent in order to avoid machinegunning) ;

    .................................................. .................................................. .......................................



    Say hello to the GGD "P4" dream kit FIX
    (as IMHO the default "P4" snare drum (the cast bronze) is the strongest snare sound of all GGD packs and "P4" is definitely worth to be played but unfortunately has the most inadequacies in software drumming by default)


    Features:

    ∙ Hihat : integrated EDGE + fixed open sound issue (the issue: if you close it it won't stop instantaneously by default) ;

    Hihat pedal note ("Chick") sound level is significantly increased (not only the 6 dB that are available by default because that won't be enough!) ;

    ∙ Snare : seperated CENTER <-> RIMSHOT ( + Sidestick) --> the ingeniously sounding high velocity CENTER sounds will be played when hitting hard ( = no Rimshots on the center head) <-> the Rimshots will be available on the snare pad's rim (also the "Sidestick" with a velocity border, if you like).
    You can also decide to keep some of the lower Rimshot stages within the main center snare (on high vel strokes) and only outsource the loudest Rimshots to the rim of the snare pad. ;

    ∙ Cymbal Choking : you will be able to choke all the Cym sounds (except the Ride sound) by choking any of your crash cym pads (even choking the hihat can achieve this if you like). The Ride pad will exclusively choke the Ride sound and won't affect Crashes/Splashes/Chinas/Stacks. ;

    adding a third TomTom + adding a left Floor Tom (so you can have the Tom setup similar to the INVASION kit) ;

    adding a second Snare or call it Side Snare ;

    adding a second right Crash cymbal ;

    Double Bassdrum Sound:
    play a DoubleBassdrum feel (like the INVASION kit) with alternating Kick sounds (the second Kick will sound slightly diffrent in order to avoid machinegunning) ;

    Bassdrum sound FIX: limited sample range --> this will avoid the buggy sounding samples (the buggy sounding double bounce pulse hits triggerd by lower velocities) ;

    Ride cymbal sound improvement: sharpen transients (the Ride "PING") and make it cut through (optional feature) ;

    Say hello to the GGD "HALPERN SIGNATURE / PIII" dream kit FIX
    (also a "Halpern Sig/P3" kit can be fun for e-drummers and feature so much more...)

    Features:

    ∙ Hihat : variable CC hihat: integrated EDGE articulations!!! (all 7 stages!) + FIXED: stage levels, Open BOW articulations issue and open sound issue when closing quite softly.
    (the issues: 1.: by default there is an extreme velocity and sound jump on the 3 open BOW articulations "Wide", "Open3", "Open2" comparing input vel (south of) 126 and then 127 ( = 126 sounds softly and the opposite of crashed and then 127 extremly increases level: sounds smacked and crashed. This won't work well for e-drumming. So I've fixed this.)
    2.: Using the CC articulation won't allow altering the level of single members (stages). As "Halpern Sig/P3" hihat IMHO really needs adjustments I've just fixed this: the workaround CC hihat will now contain all articulations (all BOWs + all EDGEs) and each of them adjustable in level.
    3.: if you close the hihat quite softly it won't stop instantaneously by default -> same issue like on "P4" then, getting a kind of fade out range )
    ;

    ∙ Snare : separated CENTER <-> RIMSHOT ( + Sidestick) --> the high velocity CENTER sounds will be played when hitting hard ( = no Rimshots on the center head) <-> the Rimshots will be available on the snare pad's rim (also the "Sidestick" with a velocity border, if you like)
    You can also decide to keep some of the lower Rimshot stages within the main center snare (on high vel strokes) and only outsource the loudest Rimshots to the rim of the snare pad. ;

    ∙ Cymbal Choking : you will be able to choke all the Cym sounds (except the Ride sound) by choking any of your crash cym pads (even choking the hihat can achieve this if you like). The Ride pad will exclusively choke the Ride sound and won't affect Crashes/Splashes/Chinas/Stacks. ;

    adding a second Snare or call it Side Snare (as you deserve a second Snare and a rich in variety drumsound!) ;

    adding a (right (for right-handers)) X-HAT!! (as it increases pleasure of playing so much and provides a varied hihat sound!) ;

    adding a third TomTom + adding a left Floor Tom (so you can have the Tom setup similar to the INVASION kit) ;

    Double Bassdrum Sound:
    play a DoubleBassdrum feel (like the INVASION kit) with alternating Kick sounds (the second Kick will sound slightly diffrent in order to avoid machinegunning) ;

    adding more Splashes!! ;

    adding more Chinas!! ;
