Over 13GB of material is arranged in two different ways. Firstly, we have the full kit loops in both dry and FX mixes. Secondly, we have given you all the separate tracks from the recording sessions, so you have complete control over how you want to use the kit. There are separate tracks for kick, snare, toms, and cymbals as well as room mics, Center mic and each of the effects different that are used. Effects used include delays, reverbs, modulation, and compression etc.
The drumkit used is a DW Jazz series set with Sabian cymbals recorded through an API 1608 desk to Pro Tools. The API desk is ideally suited to recording drums because it gives a very punchy and mid-forward sound.
