Modern & Massive is a drum library that makes a statement. Clean, powerful, vibrant drum tones with a truly explosive ambiance, designed to satisfy those who want the most massive and most realistic sounds.
Featuring a mouth-watering selection of earth-shaking kicks, shotgun-blast snares, deep, impactful toms, and shimmering cymbals from bespoke manufacturers and industry leaders, and an intuitive, powerful GUI packed with functionality, Modern & Massive hands you the ability to craft the perfect tones for modern rock and metal.
We dreamt up Modern & Massive lusting after a virtual drum library that gave us the polished, beefy, in-your-face sounds we hear in the best-produced modern rock and metal records. We chose drums that continued the time-honored rock tradition of devastating simplicity and decided to sample them at Middle Farm Studios, UK, one of the best-sounding drum rooms in the world. We selected heads and tuned the drums for the most significant impact, and sampled them in excruciating detail, up to frankly worrying intensities, to give you natural-sounding tones capable of unbelievable power.
Modern & Massive’s sounds are obsessively engineered and minimally processed to give you incredible tones out-of-the-box, that doesn’t paint you into a corner when it comes to deciding on your mix aesthetic.
