Samples: RIOT Drums is a drum sampler plugin in VST / AU / AAX Format for hardcore punk and such genres. It plays in your audio editor of choice by processing midi notes into real drumsamples. It is very realistic and unprocessed for you to create unique sound.

  • Over 2700 drum samples.
  • Drums: 1 kick, 1 snare, 3 toms and a whole set of cymbals (hihat, ride, 2 crashes, china, 2 splashes).
  • Each drum has many adjustable mics: Close, room close, room far, overheads and bassdrum & snare includes also close rear mic.
  • Each drum has it's own pan and gain knobs.
  • Each mic has it's own gain knob.
  • Each mic can also be routed to any of the 16 stereo outputs.
  • A simple 1 stereo output mode by default.
  • Each drumhit's midinote is freely adjustable.
  • A soundcheck-mode for adjusting drums without the need of external midiclips during the pre-mix.
- Really good and natural samples. Simple interface, incredibly fast tweaking in the mixer and routing sections! And snare is sounding great on blastbeats!!!

- "In your face!" The RIOT Drums kit is definitely not just another drum VST. If you are searching for a really realistic sounding and punchy drum plugin, don't look any further. The sound of the RIOT Drums plugin is natural, raw and authentic. With its straightforward routing and mixing flexibility it's my go-to drum VST for quick sketches and final products. You really can't go wrong with the RIOT Drum Kit. Thanks IMGL!
