Pearl Reference Series Drumkit
The Pearl Reference Series Drumkit is a piece of masterwork. To perfect the sound, Pearl engineered and designed each drum individually. Depending on size and depth, each drum has its own unique thickness and combination of wood types for ultimate sound and resonance. The result is one of the best sounding drumkits on the market. With rich, full attack and great tone, these drums sit well in almost any mix.
The Pearl Reference Series drum kits are available in a wide selection of finishes and were first released in the beginning of 2006. Pearl Reference kits are played by world-renowned drummers such as Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Dennis Chambers (Santana).
XLN Audio has combined the Pearl kit with a setup of some of the finest cymbals on the market from Sabian and Paiste. The full kit consists of a 22" thumpy bass drum, a 14" smacky snare drum with a thick body, and four tom toms from 10" down to 16". In addition, you get three crashes, two Sabian and one Paiste cymbals, a 13" Paiste hi-hat, the first 13" hi-hat in Addictive Drums, and a nice dry Sabian Artisan 22" ride.
When sampling drums and cymbals there is no room for shortcuts or compromises. Everything is done with great care and precision to assure the highest possible quality.
XLN Audio works with high-quality kits in professional recording studios with the best gear they can find. The Funk ADpak was recorded in Studios 301 in Stockholm, Sweden using Neumann, Telefunken, AKG, and AEA microphones through Universal Audio preamps. The studio room in Studios 301 has excellent acoustics and considerable size which provides impressive, natural room reverb. All samples are meticulously edited and tweaked during the editing phase, ensuring realism, variation, and a natural response.
