Norwell, MA, 20th March 2011... Gen16, the new technology division of the Avedis Zildjian Company, has announced a Facebook giveaway contest.
Anyone who “Likes” Gen16 on Facebook between now and midnight EDT on March 31, 2011 will be registered in a drawing to win a complete Digital Vault collection valued at $467 MSRP.
The Digital Vault is a collection of authentic, high-resolution acoustic samples of Zildjian’s most coveted, exclusive master “reference” cymbals, along with rare, limited-edition cymbals never available to the public. Each cymbal has been hand-selected by Zildjian’s master cymbal testers from the “cymbal vault” at the company’s Norwell, MA workshop, and meticulously recorded to offer a wide range of sounds and articulations.
Powering the Gen16 Digital Vaults is a custom version of FXpansion’s BFD Eco, an intuitive drum playback/production environment based on the award-winning BFD2 technology. The BFD Eco engine allows users to change pitch, mix or add effects to these Zildjian samples to create even more unique sounds.
Also included in the Digital Vault are full libraries of drum and percussion groove tracks from some of the industry’s most in-demand drummers, available in various audio and General MIDI formats for maximum flexibility.
Current Digital Vault products include the Z-Pack, a selection of A-Series and A-Custom Crashes, Rides and HiHats; the S-Pack Volume 1, offering K-Series Crashes, Rides, HiHats and Prototypes; and the S-Pack Volume 2, offering Gong Sheets, Chinas, Rides, HiHats and Trashformers.
The winner will be selected at random, and announced on April 1, 2011.
