    Hey what's up everyone!
    I'd like to share with you my latest video review of the Kvlt Drums 2 by UGRITONE!
    I think it's got great true sounds and very authentic samples, though you can obviously tweak the settings to get a more compressed transient!

    Is this supposed to be like an alternative to SSD or SD2? Is there automation or grooves, or do you have to write all from scratch?

    I've used both. They are decent. For the most part you get the samples + samplers and that's it. It is very bare-boney and dont have the bell and whistle of superior drummer or GGD BUT it do the job well for its price and its preset are pretty good. Their MIDI packs are compatible right away and has a decent amount of grooves for you to explore and write your songs by. It is an invaluable piece of my toolkit.

    I see what you mean......your right
    They do good work
    I’m surprised no one else has mentioned them before, unless I missed it

    Really good VST bundle

    I didn't route this drum vst in multichannel mode using Reaper for this demo, since it's already very well panned and distributed IMHO, however when you click on each part of the kit you can find the Routing tab, though! It comes with 16 output channels to your audio editor for maximum mixing versatility.

    I'm not completely sure to call this an alternative to SSD... but it's definitely got great drum tones and samples. You might need to tweak the EQs and microphones levels a bit, though. It Includes a Black Metal MIDI Groove Library.

    I only had the chance to try myself the Kvlt Drums 2, not the northern artillery! However it felt very good in the mix, obviously it won't give you the modern ultra-tight and compressed djent tone, but the samples sound very authentic and good!
