Vienna Symphonic Library (VSL)

Vienna Symphonic Library VSL - VIENNA JAZZ DRUMS

With Vienna Jazz Drums, the Vienna Symphonic Library brings a decade of experience in sampling and software development to the art of jazz drumming. Not only did we record single hits using every conceivable drum technique and articulation, we’ve also captured the sonic variety inherent in each instrument by hitting it in multiple places.


    • VSL - VIENNA JAZZ DRUMS PRODUCT FEATURES:

      Want to play from the center of the head to the rim of the shell? Just move the modulation wheel and the variety and liveliness of your performance becomes jaw-dropping. Special attention was given to the ride cymbal, responsible for the characteristic quarter note pulse of many Jazz tunes. Tempo, playing zone, velocity, as well as the number of times the cymbal is hit in the context of the music contribute to the sound of this versatile and sensitive instrument, rendering an absolutely authentic performance.

      From accompaniment to solos, Vienna Jazz Drums is perfect for swing and latin grooves, big band, bebop and ballads. Good news for Vienna Instrument PRO users: The new Vienna Jazz Drums includes a set of drum loops for the internal Auto Playback and Pattern sequencer (APP) of Vienna Instruments PRO.
