Now you can choose which format you wish to own:
Existing MegaMacho Drums Kontakt 5 Owners - to pay the $45 UPGRADE FEE to get the WAV version contact us here and we will send a PayPal invoice to you. WAV owners can also Cross-grade for $125.00.
MegaMacho Drums - Kontakt 5 format gives you the unique custom interface and works ONLY in Native Instruments Kontakt 5.5 or the FREE Kontakt 5 Player.
The Advantages being that it's very easy to load the kits from the Libraries tab, the user interface allows for drum sounds to be edited far deeper and in more powerful ways than just playing samples back AND the new MIDI GROOVE PLAYER allows you to audition the 550+ MIDI file based grooves from WITHIN the interface. You no longer have to go to your computers folders and drag MIDI files in to your sequencer to hear them. The MIDI Groove Player also sync's to your host and has some very powerful parameters that can be automated to make creating dynamic, always changing grooves easy as moving 3 parameters!

Details about the library:
• 2,000 drum samples - many of them are created thru complex sound manipulation or by layering up to 8 drums together to make HUGE drum sounds for todays music production styles.
• 13 Special KITS with 61 samples per kit: Genres covered include Techno/Trance/House, EDM, DubStep, Trap, HipHop, Pop, Vintage. These kits are "compatible" so you can switch MIDI Files and the grooves still play correctly.
26 Drum MAPS: Thes kits typically also have 61 samples per kit but are not compatible with each other when playing MIDI File grooves. The Deep Space kit has a completely different layout compared to the Damaged Perc kit, for example.
• In the Kontakt version of MegaMacho Drums, there are 100+ Kit Instruments with many of them taking these 39 kits and manipulating them with the powerful effects and sound processing tools that are built into the MegaMacho K5 interface. These kits don't exist for the WAV version of the library.
• Now over 550+ MIDI File Drum Grooves in music styles ranging from TRAP to DubStep to EDM to Pop and even Waltzes, 5/4 Progressive and more!
As I stated above, the Kontakt 5 version has a built-in MIDI Groove Player which makes accessing and manipulating these grooves a LOT easier (and more fun!). This option doesn't exist for the WAV version because most samplers don't have this functionality.
Of the 34 kits, 13 of them follow strick map assignments for Kick, Snare, Side Stick, Claps, Toms, HiHats, Crash, Ride, Tambourine, CowBell, Agogo, Shaker 1, Shaker 2, Clave, Triangles and Shaker 3. This mapping layout was something I first helped establish with drum kits I've made for various Korg workstations over the last 20 years. We use this hybrid General MIDI mapping layout today in the KRONOS, and KROSS workstations.
What this means, is that while a drum groove is playing, you can switch between these 13 kits to get tons of sonic variety while playing just 1 of the included grooves! Play Trance grooves on a Trap drum kit for making NEW generes of music!
This library of MIDI grooves is now at over 500+ Grooves. Most of them are aimed at today's modern dance music styles. There are a ton of killer acoustic drum libraries, not that many killer EDM/Dance drum libraries that cover this many styles in one library and that I think is what ultimately makes MegaMacho Drums soooo cool. You can take Drum n Bass grooves and use them with a Hip Hop drum kit. Exploration and discovering new grooves is what MMD is all about!
The MegaMacho Kontkat 5 Interface has selectable High Pass/Low Pass filter, 9 effects, Amp, Filter and Pitch EG's and MORE at your immediate disposal to mangle the samples - even on a PER SAMPLE basis! So one sample can have huge reverb while another sample has LoFi, EQ and Digital Delay on it. It is SO MUCH FUN to play with this interface, you won't want to stop!
Please watch the video tutorials below to see MegaMacho in action! There is SO much you can do with this interface INCLUDING loading in samples from ANY OTHER Kontakt library and manipulating them with this visual interface! Take those cinematic drums and give them a different sound than what everybody else has!

Comments from some happy customers:
"I've never found a drum library more instantly usable and sonically powerful as this one. For electronic music production my first go to choice has got to be Mega Macho Drums, period."- Ryeland Allison, EDM producer and Film & TV Composer (Note: Ryeland was one of the "12 drummer circle" that played on the Hanz Zimmer Man of Steel soundtrack!)
Its really convenient having them inside of Ableton. I have been using your midi grooves alot for perc and hi hat fills and now i dont have to boot up Kontakt each time and can still try out all the kits rather quickly. Amazing workflow! - Steven True
"Been playing with this for hours. I like it better than most of my other Kontakt libraries." - James
"Kontact 5 just got lucky, MegaMacho Drums with it's ton of sounds under the hood and an interface that is sound manipulation at its absolute best is here!!" - Bob
"Now for the bad news about the actual library..............................too many good sounds :) I can't get any tunes down as I just want to keep programming drum tracks/beats." - Adrian
"I bought MegaMacho today it sounds great and i have already written a new track using it" - Nik
"It was after midnight when I started to use the Mega Macho Drums and they really sound great. I haven't discover all the possibilities yet and didn't watch the video until the end, because I needed to go to bed but I would have liked to stay up all night like a birthday child who want's to play with his present..." - Anselme
