Heavyocity Master Sessions Top

Master Sessions is Heavyocity's Boutique Line of instrument-specific tools for the modern composer.

OverviewRecorded in New York City, the Master Sessions series focuses on specific instruments and ensembles housed in Heavyocitys award-winning engine (powered by Kontakt). Master Sessions delivers an epic sound without the epic price!

Master Sessions: Ensemble Drums delivers 7 unique multi-sampled drum ensembles and over 300 tempo-synced loops. Each ensemble consists of up to 10 different drums, performed simultaneously by 5 players. Through creative processing and mixing, Heavyocitys team composed banks of loops to be inspiring and immediately useful.

 

   Ensemble Drums-Kits

The 7 ensembles contain a mixture of taikos, roto toms, field bass drums and snares, concert bass drums, floor toms, and large containers. These massive, punchy ensembles are presented in both menu and single kit presets, providing complete control over your sound. Heavyocity has further tweaked and affected the kits, creating an additional 24 presets with a more aggressive edge.
Mix and shape your sound using Heavyocitys proprietary interface containing global effects (reverb, delay, distortion, and chorus mod), per-drum EQ, per-channel ADSR, TriggerFX, and the signature Punish and Twist knobs.

   Ensemble Drums-Loops

Loop MainEnsemble Drums - Loops contains over 300 tempo-synced phrases arranged in menu and single loop presets. As an exciting new feature, the content is now divided into straight and triplet loops. It is a veritable “Barrage - à - Trois”. Rearrange and adjust the loops by slice with Heavyocitys signature “Loop Mutator”. Dial in the Trigger FX, master effects, filter modulation and ADSR for radical sonic results.

Layer massive kits with hybrid loops to create huge walls of percussion. Mix and match loop “stems” to build your own unique combinations of tempo-synced rhythms.

Collection Details

Control Your Sound

Loop PunishMaster Sesssions: Ensemble Drums user interface was designed FOR composers and sound designers BY composers and sound designers, providing simple, intuitive ways to alter the sounds without leaving the interface. Three levels of effects are intrinsically bound to the Kit and Loop components — apply effects globally, engage the Trigger-FX, or tweak individual sounds.

Twist, Punish, Effect

Globally affect the preset with one of the 4 Master FX (Delay, Mod, Drive, and Convolution). You have control over four effect-specific parameters (like effect amount, rate, size, or depth). Dial in the aggression with the signature “Punish” Knob, a combination of saturation, distortion, and compression. Or, modulate the shape of the sound with the “Twist” knob.

 

EQ FilterEQ, Filter, Modulate

Sculpt your sound with per-channel and per-loop EQs or add sizzle and punch with the 4-band Master EQ. Control the modulation of filters with an envelope or LFO in Ensemble Drums - Loops, altering the amount and rate of an LFO, or trigger the Filter with an ADSR envelope.

Mixer PageThe Mixer Page

The Mixer provides tune, pan, and level control for each of its 3 channels. Adjust the faders for the right blend of close, room and hall channels. Tap into per channel (or linkable) ADSR envelopes and per channel solo/mute buttons to isolate and adjust individual sounds if desired, or “Purge” individual channels to turn them off, reducing the instruments memory footprint.

 

 

 

StagingStaging

The Stage is a 3-dimensional representation of the stereo field, useful for visually placing the drums in your kit. You can place individual drums at any one of the 35 positions across the stereo field. Real-time visual feedback of playing sounds allows you to adjust drum placements quickly and easily. Shift-click to assign all drums to one stage position or trigger each drum and click to assign its position in the hall.

 

 

 

Ensemble Drums-Loops

Loop MutatorThe Loop Mutator

The Loop Mutator™ allows you to re-compose and re-imagine 300+ loops with spectacular results. Take full control over number of steps, time signature, step subdivision (straight, dotted, or triplet), individual step duration, Loop/Slice selection, and velocity. Use the randomize option to quickly generate intricate patterns and beats.
Eight fully customizable and linkable patterns per preset allow you to create complex grooves and sequences (up to 128 steps) of full rhythmic loops (in the Menus). Activate the Loop Mutator with a Single Loop preset to quickly re-compose or change the timing of any loop. Use any of Ensemble Drums percussion loops as they are or turn on the Loop Mutator™ and create unique sequences that are completely your own.

Loop ControlLoop Control

Ensemble Drums - Loops offers 300+ carefully sculpted percussion loops arranged into 2 main categories: Loop Menus and Single Loops. These loops, comprised of both straight and triplet grooves, are perfect for composing in any rhythmic environment.

The Loop Menus are intelligently mapped and formatted into “breakout” presets, allowing you to perform the full loop in a single key or mix and match individual layers. Single Loop presets provide level, pan, and tuning for each slice, and allow you to quickly recompose your groove via midi drag-and-drop.

 

The Sound of the Collection

Bunker StudiosBunker Studios

Ensemble Drums was recorded at Bunker Studios in Brooklyn, NY by John Davis (not of Korn). The 3,000 square foot recording studio utilizes a wide array of analog gear, including an SSL 4040e mixing console, BAE microphone Pres, and a massive collection of vintage and modern microphones. The pinewood room of Studio A, boasting a huge 25 ceiling, was the ideal environment for achieving the tight, punchy impact we desired for the Ensemble Drums Collection.

 

 

Ensemble Performance

Ensemble Performances

The Heavyocity team performed all the percussion found in Ensemble Drums collection. Each ensemble consists of round-robin performances at multiple velocities. Close, room and ceiling-mounted X-Y mics created the perfect capturing environment for the massive ensembles.

 

 

Creative Processing

 

Creative Processing

All content was mixed and mastered through Heavyocitys high end signal chain of analog and digital equipment. In addition to the crisp, organic percussion, we tweaked, eqed, filtered, and modulated the content to produce grittier, overdriven sounds and loops.

Fazit

Zweifelsohne ist die Ensemble Drums-Collection nicht die vielseitigste Percussion Library, aber das was sie kann, kann sie hervorragend. So brilliert sie mit umfangreichen Möglichkeiten zur Klangbearbeitung und -zerstörung sowie einem äuße3rst wuchtigen Soud - perfekt für epische Scores und Trailer-Musik!

Durch die geschickte Kombination der Kits und Loops lassen sich dabei im Handumdrehen lebendige Percussion-Arrangements erzielen.
