OUR PART # NY-STUDIOS-VOLII-SDX
Vol.2 of the N.Y. Studio Legacy Series contains unique sample recordings from two legendary New York Studios - Hit Factory NY and Allaire Studios.
The recordings at Hit Factory N.Y. were the starting point for Toontrack® in developing Superior Drummer® 2.0 and the decision to record samples at Allaire was a result of wanting to capture the best studio rooms in New York.
Sadly, for the music and recording industry both studios are now closed. Thus the subtitle ”The Lost New York Studios”. Toontrack® is privileged to have been given the opportunity to record these great rooms in collaboration with the world class recording team of engineer and producer Pat Thrall (Glenn Hughes, Black Crowes, Beyoncé etc), 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” altogether feature kits recorded with seven kick drums, thirteen snares and a wide variety of cymbals sampled in extreme detail to work with the best, most advanced drum sampler engine on the planet, Superior Drummer® 2.0.
”New York Studios Vol.2 SDX” features a custom MIDI library played and recorded by Nir Z.
The drums for ”New York Studios Vol.2 SDX”, were played and produced by Nir Z, Neil Dorfsman, Pat Thrall and Mattias Eklund at Hit Factory, N.Y. and Allaire Studios N.Y.
The MIDI for ”New York Studios Vol.2 SDX”, was recorded and played by Nir Z.
