The Blue Lantern Mini Shimmery is a quirky hi-hat module that I’ve had in my rack for a while.

This demo track was put together in Ableton Live with a single big drum rack. There is a bit of filtering and pitching of samples and some compression/EQ on the master bus, but everything else is dry. Every sound you hear is from the sample pack:

If the kicks and snares sound a little weak, well they’re coming from a hi-hat module!
