Black Toms

Epic toms library for Kontakt

This library features up to 21 layers of 3 types of toms played in a dry studio environment: low, mid and high. Simple and easy to use interface with an innovative way of adding more tom layers using the mod-wheel.





This is a new and enhanced version of the library that was originally released in 2012 with the same name.
Features new recordings, new interface and new script.

Black Toms Mixer


Black Toms features a full mixer with which you can control the two mic positions separately:

  • Close: recorded in stereo with two Sennheiser 421.
  • Far: recorded with two spaced AKG 414 placed at a back of the room.

With a load/purge switch for each channel, pan, volume, mute/solo, stereo width from 100% stereo to mono and output selector for mixing the different channels on your DAW.


The library features our advanced effect script that lets you insert any effect in any of the 8 available slots for each channel, including:

  • High Quality EQ.
  • Various types of compressors.
  • Modulation: chorus, flanger, phaser.
  • Distortion / Saturation / Tape
  • Algorithmic and convolutional reverb with more than 40 custom impulse responses.
  • Amp simulators.
  • More.

This script boosts exponentially the sonic capabilities of the library, easy to use in a simple and elegant design.

Black Toms Settings


From the settings page you can control basically any parameter you might ever need. Divided in four sections you can find:

  • Round robin: the toms were sampled with 6 true round robin repetitions, you can select the number you want and the rest will be purged from memory in order to reduce RAM usage.
  • Dynamic range: control the volume difference between the loudest and the quietest hits.
  • Velocity curve: control how the library reacts to incoming midi notes.
  • Envelope: adjust the attack and decay times.
  • Extra: special parameter that adds a sub-octave layer to the sound. It makes the lower toms sound like taikos and makes the overall sound much fuller and epic.
