Session Drums 1

Session Drums 1



  • Using close microphone techniques at Wellspring Studios in Boston, this collection captures the most natural elements of a beautiful set of DW and Pearl Drumkits. Renowned studio engineer Coleman Rogers helped us sample this kit using his arsenal of great mics, pre-amps, and compressors. After 3 days and nights sampling every drum and every cymbal, using different sticks at different velocities, at different places on the drums.

    Session Drums 1 features incredible drum realism. All stereo samples, all multi-velocity samples (each drum and cymbal has up to 4 separate samples from soft to loud). Even the hi-hats are multi-velocity. We also threw in some extra hi-hat "shank" samples for hard-hitting rock tunes. Everything is laid out in GM keymaps so you can swap these kits easily into your existing sequences.

As an independent engineer/producer, the quality of the drum tracks I create for my clients is a paramount selling point for my services. The Session Drums DVI is a solid addition to my drum arsenal, at a price-point that makes them a total no-brainer! I will be adding other Sonivox products to my toolbox in the very near future!
