Introducing MegaMacho Drums in both
Kontakt 5 and WAV format!
Now you can choose which format you wish to use:
MegaMacho Drums Kontakt 5 format gives you the unique custom interface seen below 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 AND the user interface allows for drum sounds to be edited far deeper and in more powerful ways than just playing samples back.
MegaMacho Drums WAV format gives you the individual WAV samples plus files to load 60 Presets (over 35 drum kits) in 6 different formats:
• Kontakt 4/5 (.nki)
• Battery 3/4 (.kt3)
• Logic Pro EXS 24 (.exs)
• Propellerheads Reason
• ProTools Structure
• Ableton Live Sampler
The advantage being that you can use these samples in your plug-in or sequencer of choice without needing to load Kontakt 5.
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.
• 34 Unique drum kits that have 61 samples across the keyboard. The Drum Kits have 7 Kicks and 8 Snares PER KIT so that you have lots of options for the groove! Genres covered include Techno/Trance/House, EDM, DubStep, Trap, HipHop, Pop, Vintage as well as Vocal, SFX kits and some bonus synth presets that are fun to play with.
• In the Kontakt version of MegaMacho Drums, there are 100+ Kit Instruments with many of them taking these 34 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 300 MIDI File Drum Grooves in music styles ranging from TRAP to DubStep to EDM to Pop and even Waltzes, 5/4 Progressive and more!
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 will also grow larger over time. With updates planned for August (already added to the library) and on October 15th, the number of MIDI based grooves will grow to well over 300 before the end of the year. These updates will be posted on this page and will always be a FREE DOWNLOAD!
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!

UPDATE August 15th: Here are the Release #2 new Grooves and Kits
UPDATE October 15th: Here are the Release #3 new Grooves and Kits!
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
