Cherry Snare - Acoustic snare drum
Cherry Snare is a sampled acoustic snare drum.

This custom snare drum was hand crafted by Ebenor Percussion into cherry wood. This is a warm sounding 14x7 inches snare drum with a 1/2 inch thickness and a 45 degree chamfer, mounted with triple flange hoops dressed by a 2 plies coated drumhead.

It was recorded using 5 microphones (2 on top, 1 at the bottom and a stereo matched pair for the room sound), giving the possibility to mix the final sound from 4 channels. Top and bottom condenser mics were recorded through a tube preamp using NOS vintage 12AX7 tubes driven to a class A digital converter. Top dynamic mic and the stereo room condenser mics were picked up from a top notch soundcard's transistor preamps.

Each channel features a Punch knob which controls the sustain level set with a fix decay setting, this mimics what can be expected from a compressor or an expander to sculpt the transient sharpness. Release and Pan controls are also available on the 4 strips. The master section features a Velocity Dynamic knob to adjust the amplitude range delivered in function of the MIDI velocity.

A tuner is provided to pitch the snare drum up or down and a Vari-pitch (a LFO aplied to the pitch) can produce from very subtle to totally unrealistic pitch variations.
  • 208 samples, 24-bit / 44100 Hz.
  • 5 stroke techniques.
  • Up to 3 velocity layers.
  • Up to 5 round-robin samples by layer.

I don't know how it would sound in real project but from the demo it seems very nice!

This is a great VST, it sounds real, now I have to find better samples for the rest of my virtual drums, because they all sound fake compared to this snare. Great job, was worth the time to come back an find it again to comment. Oh yeah, 5 big bright golden stars

If you're making dub music, this is top kit. Just add a space echo and you're in scratch perry land.

This is highly playable from the standpoint of triggering via electronic drum triggers. I set this up for my drummer using an alesis control pad and it was near impossible to make this sound fake. The only problem we ran into was that some of the round robin samples don't have proper fades on the end so there will be audio clicks as they end... found this with everything except for the stereo pair when the release settings were set above about 9 o'clock.

HI, thanks for your feedback. Didn't tried with a pad but it was done thinking about live playing, so thanks for the test ! Clicks are not in samples but may occurs depending the system. An update will come and hopefully will fix this issue...

Very nice plugin overall - it does have a bug in 32 bit reaper on my system though. If you move the tuning dial it will default back to the centre position when you hit play on the transport which means whatever tuning you have moved it to doesn't stick once you press play again.

The tuner uses the pitch bend midi CC, maybe you can setup reaper to not reset CC's at playback start ?

In Reapers preferences under MIDI Devices you have to untick 'Reset pitch' - works fine now :)

I have recorded pitch bend data on the appropriate midi track and channel but the tuning dial does not respond. The dial also does not reset to center on playback but when the file is closed and reopened.

Seems to me just as good and much more friendly that some I would not afford to pay for, anyway :) I am very please to think VST4FREE may intend to give us more, but don't rush anything, or people will get spoiled :) Thank you very very much. Lov!
