🔥NEW🔥 Bogren Digital – Krimh Drums Virtual Instrument Plugin | ULTIMATE Review and Demo (Promo Code/Discount!)
If you need a Virtual Drum Instrument that helps you program more realistic sounding rock and metal drums, here is your answer: Bogren Digital Krimh Drums.
Bogren Digital just released Krimh Drums virtual instrument plugin that works with the free version of Kontakt Player.
I walk you through how to install, set up, and even assign midi to Krimh Drums Plugin. Krimh Drums are also demoed so you can hear how they sound by themselves and also in the context of a dense mix.
Take note of the humanization features, which does an incredible job of making MIDI sound and feel REAL.
Finally, I go over all the extra features that this plugin has under the hood and how to use them to make a killer sounding mix (Warning: there are a LOT of extra features in this plugin!). All this, while learning how to become better at mixing and mastering music 🤘
Bogren Digital Krimh Drums Virtual Instrument Plugin helps you make more natural sounding programmed drums!
Krimh Drums goes beyond what you expect from typical MIDI drum instruments. There are several humanizing algorithms under the hood of this plugin that make it stand out compared to other drum libraries like GGD and Superior Drummer in terms of how real these drums sound.
With the flick of the “Anti-machinegun” button and the “Auto Double Kick” buttons, you can create realistic performances in seconds! Fast tom fills also benefit from these automatic articulation enhancement features adding to a more believable programmed drum performance.

This is the default view where you can choose drum presets and choose which drums you want to use.

The Mixer Page
This is the main page to dial in the sound of your drums. Includes individual panning for each drum, volume fader, reverb sends, bleed control, and also the drum sample’s envelope.
Below the faders lies a series of great sounding, built in plugins that help you craft amazing drum sounds including:
- Channel Strip EQ Plugin: I believe modeled after an SSL Mixing Console.
- Compressor Plugin: Modeled after an 1176 compressor. This is one of my favorites on individual drums.
- Transient Enhancer Plugin: Incredible for adding more snap or body to a drum that can’t be achieved any other way.
- Saturation Plugin: I believe this was modeled after a RAT pedal (shares similar graphics).
The Master Channel has Additional Effects That Also Sound Great!
Additional effects include:
- VCA style Drum Bus Compressor
- Drum Bus Tape Saturation Plugin
- Super musical EQ
Krimh Drums also includes many built in MIDI grooves that you can drag and drop into your session!
This is a really nice feature to help you quickly write songs or put together some incredible sounding drum grooves in your songs. Full demonstration on how to use this feature in the video below.
