When a drummer hits a drum it produces different tones depending on how hard the drummer hits and where the stick connects with the drum head. We record each of these drum hits (or velocities) individually so that even a kick drum might have seven different samples that range from very quiet to very loud.
This is the best way to accurately emulate the nuances of a real drummer.
What this means is that you get a WAV file of every velocity so that you can put together your own ultra realistic virtual drum kit in your software sampler by using our carefully recorded drum samples.
Whether you're programming drum tracks, triggering our samples from an electronic drum kit or simply using our samples in a drum replacer like 'Drumagog', you'll need a sample for each velocity if you want your drums to sound natural.
We use file names with descriptive titles that have a number on the end. The higher the number, the quieter the sample, so a file with the number 1 will always be the loudest sample in the collection. Here's an example:
Check your samplers manual to find out how to create your own virtual instruments with multi velocity samples like ours. The process is pretty much the same with all samplers, assign a group of WAV samples to a key or pad and then map each velocity the way you like it.
