Over 70GB of professionally recorded multitrack drum samples featuring 6 full kits with extras.

Joe Barresi Evil Drum SDX for Superior Drummer 2.0 Sample Collection from Platinum Samples features 24-bit professionally recorded multitrack drum samples with full bleed and unprecedented detail. Included are 64 drums and cymbals played by Bobby Jarzombek (Halford, Spastic Ink), and MIDI grooves performed by Pat WIlson (Weezer, The Special Goodness). The expansion kit features 5 DVDs with a total of 6 complete drum sets with 6 extra snares, and 6 extra additional kicks for a total of over 70GB of drum samples recorded with as many as 250 velocity layers.

Joe Barresi chose to record the Evil Drums sample library at his two favorite drum rooms, using the exact same recording process he's used on numerous album projects. With expert use of the studios' Neve consoles, analog tape, and his own (secret) esoteric sound collection of mic preamps, equalizers, and compressors, Joe has created a diverse sample collection of drum sounds. With individual control of the direct tracks, the stereo room, and the compressed mono room in BFD, it's possible to create an amazing amount of different styles from the same virtual drum kits.

The manufacturer's included in this drum sample library are Gretsch, Tama, Pork Pie, Ayotte, Drum Workshop, Zildjian/Noble & Cooley, Ludwig, Zildjian, and Paiste. Registered users will have access to a bonus DW Mardis Gras Kick Drum (as available).

  • Just what i was looking for

    As reviewed by Robert Boncore on 4/22/2014

    I would recommend this to anyone looking for versatility in Superior Drummer. I was not a fan of the stock sounds, so i decided to try this out. I'm thrilled that I did. The sounds are very authentic and the collection has a wide range of options.

  • The BEST Expansion… a MUST HAVE

    As reviewed by Rob Heskin on 1/10/2013

    I have had evil drums for about 3 years now and have some other expansions and have seen all of them. This one is hands down the most unique and the best. It's all recorded to tape and you've got some monster kicks in there. All the samples are extremely colorful and musical. If you're looking for more sounds and very unique HUGE sounding drums than look no further. Buy this expansion with the utmost confidence. I use this library on tons of albums and I use it far more than the BFD2 original library which is darn good in it's own right?
