Epic drum ensemble for Kontakt

What happens when you put 8 drummers playing together in a recording studio?

Recorded at Sonoteque Studios with the best session drummers using premium drum kits with tunings matched to create the fullest possible sound.

With 6 round robin, 4 mic positions, 6 velocity layers, included effects and total control over each microphone and articulation.

Why you'll love Drum Circle

Inspired by the soundtrack of the movie Man of Steel.


The energy that's produced when 8 drummers play together can't be simulated by using 8 different drum libraries. This is something different.


With a full mixer to control each microphone position, total control over the mapping and a gallery of included DSP effect for each mic.

Smaller ensembles

We wanted to offer not just 8 players, but also 2 and 4 to create small and intermediate settings. All selectable from the GUI.

  • Mixer



    Drum Circle features a full mixer with which you can control the three mic positions separately.

    With a load/purge switch for each channel, pan, width, volume, mute, solo, phase shift and output selector for mixing the different channels in your DAW.

  • Effects



    In the effects page you can add any effect you want in any order.

    Including EQ, compressors, modulation effects, distortion, saturation, tape machine, reverbs, amp simulators and more.

    This script boosts the sonic capabilities of the library exponentially. Easy to use in a simple and intuitive design.

  • Settings



    From the settings page you can control any parameter that you might ever need.

    Round robin, velocity curve for adjusting the velocity of the incoming MIDI notes. Remap any articulation to any key and envelope with attack and decay controls.
