Big Mono is a roomy rendition of a loveable vintage Ludwig kit, the drum kit Questlove is very fond of. Tracked through a vintage Neve console, and as usual onto a nice thick roll of tape. This kit sounds organic and retro with a spacious vibe!
This is a Kontakt instrument, which requires the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt sampler. You’ll also get premapped Battery and EXS kits, and if you prefer another format that’s not included in the pack, then you have access to the open WAV files, so you can map it yourself. Nice!
For the gear heads, here is some extra information of the exact setup and recording process. This vintage Ludwig kit was recorded with a Rogers Dynasonic snare, classic Zildjians, and a Sabian ride for extra sauce. Recorded in mono using a decca-tree configuration supplemented with spot mics for detail.
