OUR PART # ANDY-JOHNS-CLASS-DRM
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.
Rather than use preassembled drum kits, Andy chose his favourite pieces to create different drum kits for his expansion pack. Each kit was meticulously tuned by Andy himself to create the best drum library available. 65 Gigs never sounded so good.
