Drum Tree is made from the ground up to help you produce rich sounds, full of human expression without complicated midi input
A comprehensive round robin cycle
Each key has numerous sample layers (up to 54). Every assigned key has 2 cycle round robins alternating between right and left hand. Human perception is incredibly sensitive to repetition and this level of detail means it would be very difficult for even a seasoned engineer to listen to your track and know your drum sound was not a live performance.
The velocity randomiser works intelligently with up to 8 round robins to humanise your drum patterns. This means the kick and snare will not sound robotically repeated even if your midi has a section of repeated 100-velocity notes. This is important because no-one is perfect and those small imperfections make a performance seem like a live session.
Roll activation switch
Using a midi piano's 'soft' or 'una corda' pedal lets you to hold a sextuplet note. Sextuplet notes and 32nd note rolls can also be achieved through A0 and B0 key switches.
This lets you get creative, and easily do snare ghost notes, cymbal rolls and double kicks which can be difficult manually.
Tempo, accent, and swing are all adjustable. The library will synchronise to the tempo of your host if used in a DAW.
