Voyager Drums has been recorded from three different microphone positions with 24 bits and 96 KHz, 5 Round Robins and 16 velocity layers in the Principal Studios near Münster, Germany. Finest equipment from SPL, API, Apogee as well as microphones by Neumann, Sennheiser, AKG, Rhode and Shure were used to achieve the best results possible.
You can set individual Attack and Decay times for all three microphone positions. Since the direct signal has been recorded in mono you can set your own panorama.
The Trigger Sound allows you to enhance the natural sound of the bass drum (also available for snare and toms) with synthetic drum sounds. This way you can create new and exciting drum sounds. The trigger sounds have an individual Delay and Pitch control as well.
The Effect Section has been designed for easy use. The compressor offers a selction of usefull presets. The limiter helps you not to overload you signal. Using the equalizer and the distortion you can shape the sound to your taste.
The arranger allows you to trigger midi grooves from within Voyager Drums. These grooves will always be in sync to your sequencers speed. Select from 5 different speed presets, each containing 48 straight grooves, 12 triplet grooves and 12 fills. The grooves have all been recorded according to the BPM settings, bringing you a total 360 individual variations. You can also find the grooves in your library folder as midi files for use in your sequencer.
