Sonivox has released Tony Coleman Drums, a new Signature Artist Series instrument library.
Renowned for his work with B.B. King, Etta James, Buddy Guy and Albert King, Tony’s Mapex Saturn Series drum kit was expertly captured at the world-famous Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN, with Tony himself behind the drums.
Using no-compromise audio recording equipment, each drum and cymbal was meticulously recorded in great detail, including additional tracking of the kick drums to a Studer 2-inch analog tape machine to capture the effect of tape compression and huge, warm bass frequencies. The recording session’s impeccable realism and detail perfectly translates every one of Tony’s drum samples to any modern digital audio workstation.
