Version 2020-10-18

Multi-channel drum kit made by Lars Muldjord for DrumGizmo. It provides 16 channels that can be selectively mixed to create many different sound renderings. The kit consist of 2 kickdrums, 3 hanging toms, 1 floor tom, 1 snare, 1 hihat, 2 crash cymbals, 2 ride cymbals, 1 china cymbal. It should be considered a metal or rock kit.

DrumGizmo format is recommended if professional quality is desired, no other free programs have the same features. Conversion to other formats are made by FreePats, they are simplified with just one particular mix to stereo, but can be useful for certain cases and still sound very good.
