      ILIO Ocean Way Drums Platinum - PC (H74976)
Availability:  


80GB, 24-bit/96kHz drum kit sound library recorded at iconic Ocean Way Studios by Grammy winners Allen Sides and Steven Miller.

Produced and engineered by Allen Sides and Steven Miller, co-produced by Sonic Reality, the 96kHz industry-standard, Ocean Way Drums Platinum HD includes 19 multichannel drum kits plus 7 additional kick drums packed into 80 gigabytes of super high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz samples pre-installed onto a special 7200 RPM hard drive. Also includes the Gold edition of Ocean Way Drums.

The Producer/Engineers

Allen Sides is the owner of Ocean Way and Record One studios in Los Angeles. In addition to being considered the recording industry's leading microphone expert, he is a Grammy winning engineer/producer that has recorded over 500 albums, with stars in every genre. Artists include Alanis Morrisette, Green Day, Quincy Jones, Eric Clapton, Beck, Phil Collins, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, Foo Fighters, Sheryl Crow, Frank Sinatra, Faith Hill, Frank Zappa, Mary J Blige and Count Basie.

Steven Miller is a pioneer in the field of digital audio. As a Grammy nominated producer/engineer/arranger, he helped build Windham Hill Records from a tiny audiophile label into a prestigious industry leader. In addition, he co-founded both the Hip Pocket/Windham Hill Jazz and RCA/Novus labels. Platinum artists he has worked with include Dave Matthews Band, Suzanne Vega, Backstreet Boys, Pink, George Winston, Switchfoot, Manhattan Transfer, Toad The Wet Sprocket and Paula Cole.


Discrete Recording/Mixing Technique
Audiophile gurus, Allen Sides and Steven Miller developed a unique, discrete multi microphone recording and mixing technique. Utilizing up to 13 separate mono and stereo sound sources per instrument (including 3 sets of stereo room mics), this technique captures the sound of each instrument with startling audiophile clarity and enables the end user to independently adjust each drum and cymbal within the kit from tight and dry, all the way to wide and ambient.


Microphones
Microphones used for recording Ocean Way Drums were hand picked by Allen Sides from his personal collection.

- Kick: AKG D112, Neumann U47 Fet
- Snare Top: AKG C12A , Shure SM57 (custom)
- Snare Bottom: Sony 55P
- Hi Hat: Sony 55P
- Toms: AKG C12A
- Overheads: AKG C12
- Rooms: Telefunken U47, Neumann M50, Telefunken Elam 251, Neumann KM 54



Recording Console
All audio was recorded through Studio B's custom, one-of-a-kind console, considered to be the most astonishingly clear board in existence. Very little EQ or compression was used, but when it was, highly modified classic gear from Neve, API, Urei, and Fairchild was utilized.


Natural Room Acoustics
The drums were placed in the rear right corner of historic Studio B, considered by most producers and engineers to be the "sweet spot" with the most low end punch.

Because the wonderful acoustics, each instrument was able to be recorded at the optimal distance and angle and with the microphones that best captured the full frequency and dynamic range of that instrument.

The multiple sets of stereo room mics picked up the room's natural ambience at various distances from the drums. Each separate room source presents its own unique sonic color, and when the various room sources are blended together, they present unlimited tonal options.


Mix Presets
Allen Sides and Steven Miller created 6 "mix presets" per drum kit to instantly provide killer sounding, record quality mixes. Presets can be instantly changed either as an entire set, or, individually per instrument within a drum set. There are 6 separate pre sets for both the mono snare drum (57) and the stereo snare drum (C12A).


Mix Flexibility
Beyond the presets, adjustments can easily be made and saved to all of the individual sound sources within each instrument of every drum kit. This, along with control of pitch, pan, envelope, velocity and balance of the stereo submasters, gives users total control of the mix and provides unlimited possibilities.


Drum Replacement
Triggering Ocean Way Drums from existing audio is best accomplished in conjunction with Wave Machine Labs' Drumagog. You can transform any drum performance recorded in a less than optimum environment into that "major label" sound. Step by step instructions for both Mac and PC users are included in the manual.


Snare Presets: 57 and C12A

Six close microphones were used to record the snare drum - two AKG C12A´s about eighteen inches above the drum head, two custom SM57´s two inches from the head, and two Sony 55P´s five inches under the bottom head.

Since there are numerous ways in which to utilize the six mics, Ocean Way Drums offers two Presets which represent the opposite ends of the sonic spectrum. The "C12A" versions utilize both C12A´s in stereo (panned hard left and right) along with both under snare mics in stereo (also panned hard left and right). The "57" versions utilize one or the other custom 57 in mono without under snare mics. Many of the Pre Sets for both the "C12A" and "57" versions do include some amount of "Thwack," which is a highly compressed mic signal to be added to your dry, uncompressed drums.


Here is a list of 12 different mic combinations that Ocean Way Drums suggests you experiment with:

Version "C12A"
- Stereo C12A´s (L&R) with Stereo under snare mics (L&R) Preset
- Stereo C12A´s (L&R) with Mono under snare mic (C)
- Mono C12A (C) with Stereo under snare mics (L & R)
- Mono C12A (C) with Mono under snare mic (C)
- Stereo C12A´s (L&R) with no under snare mics
- Mono C12A (C) with no under snare mic


Version "57"
- Stereo 57´s (L&R) with Stereo under snare mics (L&R)
- Stereo 57´s (L&R) with Mono under snare mic (C)
- Mono 57 (C) with Stereo under snare mics (L&R)
- Mono 57 (C) with Mono under snare mic (C)
- Stereo 57´s (L&R) with no under snare mics
- Mono 57 (C) with no under snare mic Preset


Snare On and Snare Off
Snare On and Snare Off versions refer specifically to the sound of the Kick Drum and the Toms. "Snare On" means that the Kick and Toms include the rattle of the snare drum. "Snare Off" means that the snares were turned off during the striking of the Kick and Toms.


Multi-channel output
Ocean Way Drums is a multi-output virtual instrument. Every channel in the mixer can be routed to a separate stereo or mono input in your DAW. Even though the default is stereo, you have custom controll over your output configuration and can make simple pre sets for any and all situations.


Loading the Sounds
You can load the sounds of Ocean Way Drums either as individual instruments, or as entire drum kits.


Two types of patches are included: Instruments and Multis
- Instruments are individual drums (kick, snare, hat, toms, ride cymbal, crash cymbals.)
- Multis are entire Drum Kits - a combination of individual drums
- The Instruments and Multis are broken up into two folders labeled IMAP ( for use with a MIDI keyboard) and V-Drum (for use with drum pads). Within these folders, you have a choice of Snare On" and Snare Off" as well as a choice between the snare 57 and snare C12A presets.


Custom Drum Kits
Building custom kit multis are a snap. You can make changes to an existing kit or put together a kit from scratch. It´s easy to "mix and match" instruments from one kit with instruments from another. The sheer number of different kicks, snares, toms, hats and cymbals provides many possibilities.


Mapping / Performance
All drum kits and individual instruments come mapped for both MIDI keyboard and drum pads. Ocean Way Drums´ custom programming helps you perform realistic drum tracks - down to even the most subtle nuances of the groove. When choosing kits and individual instruments in the browser, you will see two options: V-Drum (drum pads) and I-MAP_GM (keyboard). Keyboard map users have the option of switching between I-MAP and GM on each instrument or the entire kit.


GM MAP
GM Map (General MIDI) is the standardized layout for MIDI keyboard. Most existing MIDI files are in this format.


I-MAP
I-MAP is a proprietary MIDI note-mapping layout for the keyboard that provides more performance variations and articulations than any other drum product. Featuring a powerful layout that places drums in their most intuitive position, I-MAP enables you to create incredibly expressive drum tracks that feel and sound like the real thing. Since I-MAP uses the same basic Kick, Snare and Hi Hat placement as GM (+ 1 octave), you can work with existing MIDI grooves in I-MAP mode to add a more life like feel to your grooves.

I-MAP Features:
- Up to 32 dynamics per hit
- Left and right stick hits for every drum and cymbal - providing startling realism
- Dedicated keys for rolls, ghost notes, cymbal swells, alt hits, etc
- 8 keys for the positions of the snare - from center to edge
- 4 keys for the kicks
- 9 different hi hat variations from foot and closed to open
- 6 alternate hits per tom
- Efficient key switching for instantly changing presets


The V-Drum Map
The V-Drum Map has been carefully programmed to work with Roland´s TD-20 V-Drums electronic drum kit. It offers a high level of real performance variations and a comfortable range of positions for each instrument within the kit. It's loaded with a multitude of samples, which makes for great dynamics and serious playability.

V-Drum Map Features:
- Wide dynamic range
- Alternating "round robin" hits - avoids the "machine gun effect"
- 3 positions for the snare - center, edge and rim
- 2 positions for the toms - center and edge
