A unique collection of drum samples recorded in two legendary NY studios by 3 industry pros.
Vol.2 of the N.Y. Studio Legacy from Toontrack's SDX Series contains unique sample recordings from two legendary New York Studios—Hit Factory NY and Allaire Studios. The recordings at Hit Factory NY were the starting point for Toontrack in developing Superior Drummer 2.0 (S2.0) and the decision to record drum samples at Allaire was a result of wanting to capture another great studio room in New York. Sadly, for the music and recording industry both studios are now closed, thus the subtitle of this sample collection: "The Lost New York Studios".
Toontrack was privileged to be given the opportunity to record these great rooms in collaboration with the world-class recording team of engineer/producer Pat Thrall (Glenn Hughes, Black Crowes, Beyoncé), producer Neil Dorfsman (Kiss, Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits, and Sting), and drummer Nir Z (Genesis, John Mayer, Joss Stone, and Chris Cornell).
New York Studios Vol.2 SDX library features kits recorded with seven kick drums, thirteen snares, and a wide variety of cymbals sampled in extreme detail to work with the advanced drum sampler engine, Superior Drummer 2.0. The drums were played and produced by Nir Z, Neil Dorfsman, Pat Thrall. It also features a custom MIDI library played and recorded by Nir Z.
