Autodafe has announced the release of G&S Custom Work 2.0, a free Kontakt drum kit library with onboard sequencer.
This instrument is a new and improved version of the G&S Custom Work library. The initial sample library was released by Salvador Pelaez in 2005 and has been delivered in various formats via Autodafe.
G&S Custom Work 2.0 free Kontakt drum kit sports a simple and easy to use interface with 5 vertical slots, where each is an instrument category: kicks, snares/rim, hats (closed, open, pedal), cymbals (crash, ride, splash), and toms (hi, mid, low).
Each slot has separate controls for Solo/Mute, Level, Pan and Tune – suitable for monitoring, fine editing and fine-tuning of the samples. Also, attack and sustain of the onboard transient shaper can be applied individually to each channel.
Maybe the most exciting feature of G&S Custom Work 2.0 is the onboard drum sequencer with 32 selectable patterns. The instrument will normally load as a stereo instrument but can be switched to multi-output, with user assignable outs.
G&S Custom Work 2.0 Drum Kits requires a full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.6. It is a free download, but donations to the author (Autodafe) are welcome.
