HISTORIC RECORDING STUDIOS.
13 snare drums, seven sets of toms, seven kicks and a wide assortment of different cymbals – all sampled in extreme detail and showcasing the incredible sonic qualities of two New York City landmark studios.
The New York Studios Vol.2 SDX was recorded by engineers Neil Dorfsman and Pat Thrall together with drummer Nir Z. It includes a collection of unique drums sampled in two of the most noted New York studios ever: the Allaire Studios and The Hit Factory. These two landmark facilities have hosted the who’s who of popular music for decades – anything from David Bowie to Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones and Paul Simon.
The New York Studios Vol.2 SDX is divided in two separate libraries, one for each studio. In total, it comes with 13 snare drums, seven sets of toms, seven kicks and a wide assortment of different cymbals – all sampled with extreme detail and showcasing the incredible sonic qualities of these two rooms. The room at Allaire Studios is ambient, reverberant and almost church-like in its construction. The dense wooden walls and ceiling produce a warm and natural reverb that give the drums a clear character without being too loud or taking over. The Hit Factory has an equally massive room, producing a very rich and characteristic natural reverb.
The New York Studios Vol.2 SDX presents the essence of quality drums recorded in big, sonically perfect rooms. Still, with the built-in sound shaping tools in Superior Drummer, only your imagination sets the limits as to how you ultimately craft your final drum mix. Ambient, tight, slick, loud, dampened – the canvas is blank. Start creating.
