Free drum Kontakt library.

Hi there !

another great news today if you're looking for a very good sounding free acoustic drum for your Kontakt library. Actually there's not so many libraries that are as good as this one for free. In fact it's far the best free acoustic drum Kontakt library I've been listening and playing with for a very long time.

It's called Big Mono, it's developed by Analogue Drums & you should definitely download it right away! just listen to the demos to see for yourself, I'm pretty sure you'll be blown away !

Here is what they say about it :

Big Mono is a roomy rendition of a '70s vintage Ludwig kit with a Rogers Dynasonic snare, classic Zildjians, and a Sabian ride for good luck. Recorded in mono using Decca-tree mic configuration, this kit sounds organic, retro and spacious. It's versatile and ready to go. Tracked through a vintage Neve console, and as usual onto a nice thick roll of tape.
