Musical Sampling Boutique Drums Jolene [KONTAKT]

Jolene is the second release in our Boutique Drums Series. While Ruby celebrate the heavy, Jolene is all about vibe — great for indie, alternative, country and pop.

As per usual, we’ve included a collection of “baked-in” mix presets that cater to a variety of musical contexts. From the pillowy, intimate punchiness of ‘Sunshine’ to the portly, attitudinal ‘Lola’ preset, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve included five different hi-hat states of multisamples and live eighth-note grooves that automatically lock to your DAW’s tempo: tight, normal, slight-open, mid-open and all-open; grooves recorded at 90/120/140 BPM.

Crossfadeable hi-hat grooves with release triggers? Yup. With the modwheel down, it’ll play the loop at it’s tightest hi-hat state. As you push the modwheel up, the hi-hat opens up. It’s awesome.
