First release in the Master Engineer series of BFD compatible expansion packs from Platinum Samples 25/10/06
Andy Tunes The Snare
Platinum Samples have released Andy Johns - Classic Drums, an expansion pack for FXpansionâ€™s BFD and the first release in their Master Engineer Series.
They say that the Master Engineer Series brings you the highest quality drum samples available as FXpansion BFD Compatible Expansion Packs recorded by Platinum recording engineers and producers.
Andy Johns has recorded Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Godsmack and Eric Clapton, and too many more to mention and he recorded the drums featured here in one of LA's greatest rock drum rooms using a classic Neve 80 series console.
Rather than use preassembled drum kits, Andy chose his favourite pieces to create different drum kits for his expansion pack, each kit being meticulously tuned by Andy himself.
Recording Info from the Platinum Samples website:
Recorded in one of LA's greatest rock drum rooms using a classic Neve 80 series console and through the electronics of a Studer 800 24 track tape machine, the Classic Drums expansion pack truly demonstrates why Andy has achieved legendary status. Using no compression and only the console preamps and EQ's, and with each drum meticulously tuned by Andy himself -- the drums recorded in the Classic Drums expansion pack exhibit why the albums Andy has engineered and produced have sold over 150 million copies. To ensure that the drums would fit into a mix, and not to record the drums in a void, the drum sounds were checked with a rhythm section (drums, bass and guitar). The result is an expansion pack where you can load a drum kit and not neccesarily need to be an accomplished engineer to have some of the greatest recorded drums available in one of the most sought after drum rooms in the world on your own tracks!
During the recording process some microphones were changed, others moved, and only two Royer ribbon mics were killed... Pricing and Availability:
