    TapSpace Virtual Drumline v.2.5.5 KONTAKT

    Virtual Drumline™ has made its mark as the industry standard sample library for marching and concert percussion. Composers, percussionists, studio musicians, and educators alike will discover a sonic onslaught of variety in Virtual Drumline, featuring the world champion percussion section of the Santa Clara Vanguard. Using Virtual Drumline along with your favorite music composition software will arm you with an enormous palette of percussive possibilities.


    Virtual Drumline is not just about marching drums. Its huge collection of orchestral, world, effect, drumset, rhythm section, and drumline instruments are programmed with virtually any articulations and playing techniques imaginable. Enhanced multi-sampled velocity layers, attack/release and EQ control, multiple mallet selections, rolls, glissandi, solos and ensembles, and automatic RH/LH alternations are but a few of the powerful features programmed into the VDL instrument collection.


    The VDL library loads directly into Native Instruments’ powerful Kontakt™ Player software (free). This player is capable of loading up to 64 channels in stand-alone mode, or can be run as a VST, AU, or RTAS plug-in within various popular music applications. Kontakt Player is compatible with Intel Macs or PC’s and integrates directly into the Finale or Sibelius notation programs*, or virtually any DAW software for creating lifelike sequenced music.
