Everybody knows that Diva is a fantastic synthesizer for bass, leads and pads, but what few people realize is that Diva is also a very competent synthesizer for analog sounding drum sounds. With its semi-modular structure of oscillators, filters and envelopes it's equally on par with many dedicated analog drum machines, software or hardware.
With Analog House Drums we have created 150 retro sounding house drum sounds using only the components in Diva. This soundset contains everything you need to create drums for all genres of old-school house.
from deep and punchy kicks
to sizzling hihats, snappy snares
and bouncy percussion
Apart from the original Diva patches, we have also recorded all drum sounds clean as audio. All audio drum hits are entirely unprocessed so that you can use your compressors, equalizers and saturators as much as you want without the audio falling apart.
