The One Kit Wonder series was inspired by the many GGD users who use our libraries for songwriting. We know how crucial it is that there is as little time wasted between the moment inspiration strikes and you being able to capture it, and how important it is that you can hear your ideas sounding polished and professional so you stay excited as you develop them.

Each One Kit Wonder is captured to the same level of detail as our other libraries but comes fully mixed and ready to go so you can dive straight into writing creativity and hear your ideas immediately sound amazing. 

One Kit Wonder: Metal is designed to meld the best elements of the big-budget metal productions of the early to mid-2000s, with the new levels of natural power, realism and polish that can be found in modern drum tones. It’s a chameleon within the realms of metal, not restricted to any particular subgenre, equally at home holding down stomping backbeats as it is blasting at 250bpm. Check out the features:

  • Kontakt Player Library (with full NKS integration) and can be used with Kontakt’s Free Player – no need to buy the full version of Kontakt to use GGD!
  • Mix ready drum tones - good to go out of the box
  • A brand new, fully-featured and intuitive UI
  • Built-in Groove player
  • Built-in Master EQ, Parallel Compression and Reverb
  • The entire kit is tuned to perfection, so you’ll never be fighting against sour notes in your mix
  • Every sample is phase-coherent for easy layering

It’s our hope that this sample library will remove frustrating barriers in your creative process so that you can enjoy making music to the fullest.

Simon Grove
Producer & Mix Engineer (Protest The Hero, Plini & Intervals)
One Kit Wonder is a no-brainer if you’re after instant mix-ready drum sounds. A crucial tool for the modern songwriter.
Jeff Dunne
Producer and mix engineer (Crossfaith, Cane Hill, Motionless In White)
Whether I’m aiming to reinforce or replace the shells of a recorded kit, add depth and space with room samples, or program a realistic sounding part from scratch, I know GGD will cover all my bases. The explosive room sounds and perfectly tuned toms are worth the price of admission on their own, and the Kontakt UI makes it a breeze to set up in any project.
Jeremy Reeves
Producer (Bruno Mars, Super duper Kyle, Foster The People)
GGD has quickly become part of my go to Arsenal for acoustic drums. The detail in these drum samples, as well of the comprehensive easy to use interface, makes for quick and efficient drum tracks in any genre artist that im working with. You would be doing yourself a disservice if these drums were not part of your production.
