The TRX Cymbal Co. is proud to announce release of the TRX Digital Cymbal Studio (DCS), a groundbreaking new collection of Virtual Instruments featuring studio-quality samples of dozens of handcrafted TRX cymbals. Produced by Ample Libraries using state-of-the-art recording equipment, cutting-edge conversion software and proprietary production techniques, DCS is an expansion pack for Kontakt 4 and 5— the industry-leading, industry-standard, sound replacement and enhancement plug-in from Native Instruments— and is intended for use in a variety of studio and live situations. TRX Digital Cymbal Studio incorporates these advanced technologies to allow greater control of the recording and performing processes while providing programmers, composers and engineers as well as drummers and other musicians with greater control of the creative process.
The TRX Digital Cymbal Studio includes a diverse yet complete collection of nearly 100 cymbal sounds from TRX’s popular Original and ICON series. Because each cymbal was custom-crafted by a master Turkish cymbalsmith and specifically selected for the project, DCS offers a unique palette of sounds that are refreshingly different both from commonly available acoustic instruments and previously available digital libraries. In order to allow the most dynamic, realistic musical performances, samples of multiple playing areas (bell, face, edge, etc.) are provided for each instrument.
