ZEUS is one of the most comprehensive drum kits ever sampled and contains over 38.000 samples. ZEUS was engineered to perfection by Taylor Larson (Oceanic Studios / Periphery) and contains 10 individual microphone positions for ultimate mixing flexibility. You have individual microphones for kick drum, snares, hi-hats, cymbals, toms and dedicated overhead, room and custom distortion. The user-interface is highly intuitive and flexible, so both beginners and experts can have fun from the get-go.

ZEUS is the first library to utilize our new flow-note technology. One of the challenges with normal drum sampling is that elements like hats and cymbals artificially stack upon each other. In reality a cymbal doesn’t stack. It partially mutes when its hit again, while also carrying some sound from the previous hit. We call this concept Flow Note.

ZEUS is powered by the powerful Kontakt engine allowing for ultimate flexibility and effective streaming. ZEUS also contains features for advanced users, including ability to choose individual FX pr. microphone position. Ability to send each channel to separate output and remapping tools. The entire user-interface was designed in 3D and is incredible intuitive to use.

ZEUS contains over 38.000 samples and 25.000 lines of custom code taking the playability and realism to the next level.

ZEUS just works. It sounds completely real out of the box and doesn’t take a drum scientist or rocket engineer to operate. The flow-note technology makes everything connect. The mixer allows you to dial in your desired sound in seconds.
