We included 4 mic character variations so you can decide your vibe:

CRISP: Bright and vibrant. We recorded and mixed these sounds using FET condenser mics and tube EQs.

NATURAL: Looking for your sonic Goldilocks? Natural offers a mix of brightness and heft, thanks to the tube condenser mics and inductor EQs user during recording and mixing.

ROOM: Raw, spacey, and slightly unhinged. These sounds make you feel like you're in the room with the drums. Recorded and mixed using room mics and limiter compression.

WARM: Fat, dark, and pillowy. We recorded and mixed these sounds with ribbon mics and tube EQs for a dense, dreamy result.
