Humdrum GUI close up

The calfskin drums were close mic’d in the excellent sounding MODWHEEL HQ foyer with room mics in the stairwell.


Control of the room mics is accessed via the mod wheel.

Both the close and room mics have reverbs that can be controlled separately.


The tempo of the flams and ruffs can be adjusted via a speed knob.


The sound of the drums can range easily from quiet, close and intimate to loud, epic and ultimate.

Over 3200 samples recorded at 24bit 96kHz

All instruments are deeply sampled with up to 9 round robins and 6 velocity levels.
