Overview

The Toontrack Metal Foundry SDX expansion pack for Superior Drummer 2.0 sample engine features the drumming of Meshuggah's Tomas Haake, and includes seven massive drum kits, spanning 300,000 sound files of raw, single-hit drum recordings in the vein of Drumkit From Hell and dfh Superior. The e-drum samples cover a wide variety of harder music, from the early blues-tinged sound of the late '60s classic rock to the fragmentation of today's heavier music, including power, thrash, death, and progressive metal.

The Metal Foundry SDX celebrates the Toontrack Music Hard Rock and Heavy Metal legacy of the first Drumkit From Hell. The drum samples in this expansion pack were recorded and produced at Atlantis Studios in December 2008 by the original Drumkit From Hell recording team, Mattias Eklund (Toontrack Music), Fredrik Thordendal (Meshuggah), Daniel Bergstrand (Dug Out Studios), and Tomas Haake (Meshuggah).

The Toontrack Metal Foundry SDX features presets by:
¢Devin Townsend (Devin Townsend, Strapping Young Lad, Steve Vai)
¢Daniel Bergstrand from Dug Out Studio (Meshuggah, In Flames, Dark Funeral, Behemoth)
¢Pelle Gunnerfeldt from Gr¶ndahl Studio (The Hives, Moneybrother, Fireside, The International Noise Conspiracy)
¢Pelle Henricsson, Eskil L¶vstrand and Magnus Lindberg from Tonteknik Studio (Refused, Meshuggah, Cult Of Luna, Khoma, Hell Is For Heroes)
¢Mattias Eklund from Toontrack (Nocturnal Rites, Naglfar, Guillotine, Galneryus, Lambretta)
Jocke Skog (Clawfinger)
¢Fredrik Thordendal (Meshuggah)

The Metal Foundry SDX features custom MIDI by:
¢Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Strapping Young Lad, Devin Townsend, Testament)
¢Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork, Warrel Dane, Scarve, Aborted)

MIDI is downloadable upon product registration.

The Drumkit From Hell and Metal Foundry story
Toontrack Music was originally started as a production company for composing game and movie soundtracks. In 1999, producers Fredrik Thordendal of heavy-metal band Meshuggah and Mattias Eklund of Toontrack Music decided to design a sample library for their own use. They called Tomas Haake drummer of Heavy Metal band Meshuggah to record the drum samples. The sample library was called Drumkit From Hell.

Little did they know that Drumkit From Hell was not only the first true multisampled drum recording for use with a virtual instrument but that it would also be the start for Toontrack Music to become one of the premier developers of software, audio, and MIDI for virtual drum and percussion production, spawning groundbreaking products like dfh Superior, EZdrummer, and Superior Drummer 2.0. In the time since Toontrack recorded and released Drumkit From Hell, their knowledge of sampling drums and designing software has improved vastly and they've built a great following in all genres and with all kinds of users, but their core has always rested firmly on the foundation of those early recordings.

In order to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Drumkit From Hell, they're releasing The Metal Foundry SDX. The name has layers of meaning to Toontrack encompassing both the beginning, what has come from it, and what lies in the future. The Foundry is a place where precious metals are forged and what was started back in 1999 with the Drumkit From Hell recording sessions turned out to be truly precious.

      Realistic drums.

      By Andy

      from Sturbridge, MA

      Comments about Toontrack The Metal Foundry SDX Expansion Pack:

      I have used this for recording drum samples. It is a great expansion on the already amazing Superior Drummer 2.0. The only down side is because how realistic they sound they seem a little low in the mix. With a volume tweak they are the best out there in my honest opinion. Highly recommended.

      Jaw droppingly good!

      Comments about Toontrack The Metal Foundry SDX Expansion Pack:

      Recording drums is a painstakingly difficult process. Mic placements, rooms acoustics, etc. are a big hassle. SD2.0 takes away all the troubles with no compromise. The Metal Foundry has thousands of presets and sounds to choose from. And if that's not enough, you can customize just about anything to get the perfect sound.

      Comments about Toontrack The Metal Foundry SDX Expansion Pack:

      I haven't gone through it with a fine tooth comb try, but so far, it meets most expectations. The only thing that it's lacking for me is the fact that it doesn't have a sample for any Zil-Bels which is synonymous with metal drumming. I wasn't able to authorize and update TMF after installing with the CD's. I had to delete everything and download the install through Toontrack's product manager to be able to authorize TMF.

      On the Guitar Center side of things, i originally tried to purchase the downloadable version from them. I found out the hard way that GC doesn't sell that. The salesman sold me the completely wrong product and license #. I had to go through a three week process for returning it since I was sold software.

      Now that I have the right product, all in all, I am happy with it so far.
