The Sonic Reality EpiK DrumS - A Ken Scott Collection HD Edition is a Sonic Reality virtual instrument/plug-in for drum kits and grooves with the authentic sound and feel of classic rock records. EpiK DrumS drums comes pre-installed on a 250GB Infinite hard drive made that is bus-powered, and features USB, FireWire 400, and FireWire 800 connectivity. It features 5 of the world's best drummers recorded by legendary producer/engineer Ken Scott.
In EpiK DrumS, Scott recreated the drum sounds of multitrack studio sessions he recorded with David Bowie, Supertramp, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Dixie Dregs, Missing Persons, Elton John, and The Beatles. The most authentic classic drums were achieved from using the same rare recording equipment, the same instruments, expert technical assistance from Ross "The Drum Doctor" Garfield, advanced sound development by Sonic Reality, and collaboration with the original drummers Bill Cobham, Terry Bozzio, Woody Woodmansey, Bob Siebenberg, and Rod Morgenstein.
Over 120GB of high quality 24-bit drum samples and more than 2,000 audio grooves make for one of the most epic productions ever for a software drum instrument. See the feature list below to read about some of the other unique facets this virtual instrument has to offer.
