The Zildjian company, which has manufactured cymbals since its founding in 1623, announces the Gen16 Digital Vault, offering authentic, high-resolution acoustic samples of the company's most coveted, exclusive master "reference" cymbals, along with rare, limited-edition cymbals that were never available to the public. The company states that each cymbal has been hand-selected by Zildjian's Master Cymbal Tester, Paul Francis, from the "cymbal vault" at the company's workshop in Norwell, Mass., and meticulously recorded by John Emrich.

The Gen16 Digital Vault is powered by a custom version of FXpansion's BFD Eco drum playback/production environment based on 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, including Michael White, Dave DiCenso and Peter Michael Escovedo. Each performance is available in various audio and General MIDI formats for maximum flexibility.
