Overview of Toontrack Area 33 Origin SDX

Despite Area 33 SDX being arguably the most comprehensive metal-related drum library ever recorded, the Thordendal/Bergstrand/Margarit team felt they had barely scratched the surface. They needed to go back to the basics – to the beginning. In this sequel, they take themselves back to their formative years, when heavy metal as we know it was still in its cradle. From there they work their way up until the first SDX is picked up. Welcome to the sequel that began even before the first one began: Area 33 – Origin SDX.

For this SDX, the team returned to Fredrik Thordendal’s studio 33 in Stockholm, Sweden. A total of five sets were recorded, each representing a key branch in the lineage of classic hard rock and heavy metal from the late 1960s to the 1980s. 

But that’s not all. With two recorded tom configurations for each kit—one open and one muted—this SDX covers every blind spot in between, giving you the source material to build genre-transcending drum mixes from awesome and thunderous to muted, tight, and fast drums for any style. 

On top of that, the sets were recorded using microphones that go well beyond traditional ones. Each setup was recorded using the classic close-mic technique, but in addition with an additional set of microphones at each position.
