Toontrack have announced the immediate release of their latest expansion collection for the multi-award winning Superior Drummer 3 drum production software.
The Rooms of Hansa SDX from Toontrack features drums that have been expertly produced by Grammy Award-winning recording/mixing engineer Michael Ilbert in one of the most iconic studios in the world: the Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin, Germany.
With a broad and handpicked collection of drums captured in all four rooms on the studio premises, this SDX showcases an outstanding width in regard to both tonal range and ambience.
The indisputable crown jewel of the Hansa legacy and arguably one of the most iconic recording rooms in the world. The majestic ambience of the Meistersaal can be heard on seminal works by the likes of Nick Cave, U2 and R.E.M., to name a few.
The Live Room
From the mid-’70s and through to today, the cream of the crop of European and international artists have recorded timeless works in this room. For drums, it’s a perfect room – spacious but with a relatively moderate ceiling height, making it ambient without sounding overpowering.
The Vocal Booth
Although this room likely never was intended as a drum room, it has proven time and time again that if you’re after dry and muffled drum tones – this is where to get them. The extremely dry and absorbing space of this room brings out the most bare and honest nature of these beautiful drums. Punchy and warm!
The Marble Room
The reflective surface of the walls and ceiling of this “stone” room makes for an ambience that sounds huge whilst the hardwood flooring effectively breaks up the diffusion and keeps the decay in check – making it the perfect ambience for controlled but still reverberant rock drums.
