Modern & Massive is a drum library that makes a statement. Clean, powerful, vibrant drum tones with a truly explosive ambience, designed to satisfy those who want the hugest and most realistic sounds.

Featuring a mouth-watering selection of earth-shaking kicks, shotgun-blast snares, deep, impactful toms and shimmering cymbals from bespoke manufacturers and industry leaders, and an intuitive, powerful GUI packed with functionality, Modern & Massive hands you the ability to craft the perfect tones for modern rock and metal.

We dreamt up Modern & Massive lusting after a virtual drum library that gave us the polished, beefy, in-your-face sounds we hear in the best-produced modern rock and metal records. We chose drums that continue the time-honoured rock tradition of devastating simplicity, and decided to sample them at Middle Farm Studios, UK, one of the best-sounding drum rooms in the world. We selected heads and tuned the drums for the biggest impact, and sampled them in excruciating detail, up to frankly worrying intensities, to give you natural-sounding tones capable of unbelievable power.

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 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.
