Legacy Drums - Tea Towel

Tea Towel Drum Kit

Tea Towel features a vintage Ludwig drum kit with tea towels placed on snare and tom heads in order to damp the resonance. This technique was widely used by The Beatles in their late recordings at Abbey Road Studios in London and it’s become the trademark sound of that golden era.

Classic Rock Drum Kit

Classic Rock features a Ludwig Vistalite drum kit inspired by the 70s rock bands. This is the kit used live by Led Zeppelin. It sounds open, deep and powerful, perfect to be used in tracks that need the sound of the British classic rock bands.

Legacy Drums - Classic Rock
Legacy Drums - Brush

Brush Drum Kit

Brush features a standard Yamaha drum kit played with brushes. This kit is perfect for jazz or blues music, but also in other genres such as rock, country, Americana, folk, and pop.

The interface


From the mixer you can control the different mics separately with the usual parameters that you’d normally find on an audio mixer, with the particularity that the samples feature the full bleeding of each mic, resulting in a much more natural and real mixing experience.


In the effects page, you can add 23 DSP effects to each channel in any order you want. From an SSL style compressor and EQ to a Transient Shaper and a convolution engine with more than 30 custom impulse responses.


From the settings panel, you can control the way the library responds to the incoming midi messages. Round robin repetitions, velocity curve and advanced mapping controls with custom presets based on the most-known drum engines in the market.
