MIXOSAURUS DAW Drums released Mixosaurus Expert Virtual Drums, a new 122
Gb Virtual Drumset, powered by Native Instruments Kontakt Player 2,
that aims to provide "virtual drum authenticity". It comes pre-installed
on its own FW800 / eSATA Hard Disk Drive which you simply plug in to
your computer. No sample installation or copying of huge sample data
MIXOSAURUS comes as a customized version of Kontakt Player 2 software
and extensive use of scripting functionality allows you to apply changes
or effects at virtually any point in the signal flow – if you want to.
If not, you turn off all that jazz with a single click and have the GUI
cleared.Mixosaurus Expert Virtual Drums features and details:
122 Gb Virtual Drumset powered by Kontakt Player 2.
Comes pre-installed on its own FW800 / eSATA Hard Disk Drive.
14-piece acoustic drumkit (played with sticks), 20 available mic tracks.
Recorded at Teldexstudio Berlin, Germany.
Comes pre-installed on its own plug & play hardware unit.
Unprecedented number of available articulations.
100% authentic reproduction of drumset dynamics.
7 alternating samples available for each and every sound throughout the entire library.
More than 80,000 stereo samples, all true 24-Bit through the entire production process – no reduction, nowhere.
Signals pre-processed using the best analog and tube gear.
3 completely different overhead mic setups and 2 different Hi Hat mic setups to choose from.
Stereo PZM tracks massively compressed by tube gear.
Stereo Teldex Reverb Chamber tracks – dial in REAL, Hi End reverb with one fader movement.
All single hit samples, allowing you to play your own, great sounding rolls, flams, crescendos, even cymbal swells.
Unique combination of controls manipulating the drummer’s interpretation of incoming MIDI.
Unique set of envelope, filter and distortion controls for each drum/cymbal.
Many useful grooves and fills onboard.
The Levels Page holds volume, balance and pan controls for Close,
Overhead, PZM and Teldex Room mics – for each drum/cymbal individually.
This allows you to e.g. move an instrument’s room signal to the left
while leaving the pan of the Room Channel in your DAW centered (and thus
all other instruments’ room signals unchanged).Dynamics Page
We’ve included a feature that will save you hours of tedious programming
and adjusting grooves: the unique MIXOSAURUS dynamics section. It
allows you to manipulate the drummer’s interpretation of incoming MIDI,
to play more or less expressively, or just as well plain softer or
harder – without making changes to the MIDI sequence.Envelopes Page
MIXOSAURUS’ envelope controls let you alter the attack, length and
release for each instrument individually. Moreover, you can control the
release times of the close and distant mics separately (e.g. create
gated room effects or shorten the close mics while leaving a longer
release on the distant mics). Hi Hats have separate controls for closed
and open Hi Hat sounds, Cymbals have separate controls for stick and
mallet sounds.Delay Page
MIXOSAURUS offers you a built-in MIDI delay that is capable of producing
standard delays, repetitions, accelerating (+/-) delays, even buzzing
effects with ascending or descending frequency.
The screenshot below will soon be replaced by a movie so you can see and hear the MIXOSAURUS delay features in action.Filter Page
The MIXOSAURUS filter page, with filter type, frequency and resonance
controls. However, that’s not all: to allow for creative engineering,
you can set the degree of filter application on close and distant mics
individually – and you can swap the order of filter and distortion
algorithms in the signal flow.Distorsion Page
Just like the filter page, the distortion options include separate
controls for the degree of application on close and distant mics – and
remember, each of the drum kit’s instruments has its own set of
controls. Three distortion algorithms are available to create anything
from a hardly noticable growl to white noise.Help Page
MIXOSAURUS features instant help functionality by offering built-in
descriptions of every GUI knob or button. The info label at the bottom
of each instrument’s interface immediately jumps to a brief summary as
soon as you touch a control. The Options/Help menu at the lower right
corner of the GUI lets you activate a larger box that will have more
detailed information on the knob you move.Minimum system requirements:
