We built the Matt Halpern library as the tool we wished we had years ago, with all the little details and creature comforts we couldn’t find in other libraries:
The Halpern library is a Player Library (NKS) and can be used with Kontakt’s Free Player – no need to buy the full version of Kontakt to use GGD!

  • A fully-featured and intuitive UI for building your kit and working with spot and room mics
  • Full range of velocity layers– hard hits that are actually hard, with that hard-to-get mix of body and attack
  • Wide variety of articulations: snare on and off; center and rim hits on snare and toms; bell and side-stick on the ride cymbal
  • Cymbal matrix
  • Two snares with a total of eight tunings to give you a full range of sonic options without having to resort to pitch shifting or other tricks that degrade the tones
  • 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

Whether you’re sketching out a song idea or working on a final mix, the Matt Halpern library gives you all the tools you need to bring your ideas to life.

I've been using GGD since it came out and it rocks my world! The guys at GGD have created a product that delivers a level of realism and detail that is best in class. It's an incredibly versatile tool and has found it's way onto records I've worked on in a range of genres, from Pop records for major artists to Drum and Bass.
Jeff Dunne
Producer (Bruno Mars, Super duper Kyle, Foster The People)
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

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.
