Sonic Reality releases Nick Mason Drums for BFD

Sonic Reality Nick Mason Drums

Sonic Reality has announced the release of Nick Mason Drums, a drum kit sample library for FXpansion’s BFD2.

The BFD version of “Nick Mason Drums” is a digital recreation of the legendary Pink Floyd drummer’s “Custom Ludwig Black Kit” and was recorded by engineer/producer Alan Parsons who originally recorded the album “Dark Side of the Moon”. The same classic miking techniques and EMI mixing console model was used as they did in 1973 so that “Nick Mason Drums” could offer an authentic recreation of a vintage drum sound heard by millions on one of the best selling albums of all time.

Nick Mason Drums for BFD is an expansion sound library for FXpansion’s BFD2 and BFD3 software which allows discrete multi-channel drum kits to be played from any MIDI keyboard or e-drum. Individual mic channels can be mixed by the user to create a variety of drum sounds from dry to ambient. The drums are mapped in both standard BFD formats and Sonic Reality’s advanced “iMap” layout for high performance in MIDI drum programming and live playing. Coming in at close to 5 gigabytes in size this high quality drum kit from Mason and Parsons offers top “album quality” sound.

In addition to the digital recreation of Nick’s drum kit, live drum grooves were also performed by Nick Mason and recorded by Alan Parsons for upcoming loop libraries and more from Sonic Reality.

The sample library is available to purchase from eSoundz for $69 USD (MSRP $99 USD). Other formats such as Reason, SampleTank, Kontakt, Rex, Apple Loops, Acidized Wave and Stylus RMX are coming soon.

Sonic Reality releases Neil Peart Drums Vol. 2: The Grooves (+ free sample pack)

Sonic Reality Neil Peart Drums Vol 2 The Grooves

Sonic Reality has announced the release of Neil Peart Drums Vol. 2: The Grooves, a sample library featuring drum grooves performed by Neil Peart.

Legendary drummer of Rush Neil Peart and Grammy-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz have teamed up with music software developer Sonic Reality to create the new “Neil Peart Drums Vol. 2 The Grooves” sound collection. Over 600 grooves performed by Peart are now available in a variety of loop formats such as Rex, Apple Loops, Acidized Wave, R.A.W., Stylus RMX and more to come. Musicians can use these drum grooves to write their own music, practice, jam or play Rush covers inside their computer recording software or iPads and mobile devices.

“When we did the Neil Peart Drums Vol. 1 Series we wanted to present a digital recreation of Neil’s amazing DW kit so it could be played from any midi controller such as a keyboard or an electronic drum kit” says Sonic Reality CEO Dave Kerzner “But for Vol. 2 we now also have the isolated drum tracks of Rush songs performed by Neil and cut up into 1-2 bar patterns that can be re-arranged and used in new music made by any musician or songwriter.”

Offering the first “virtual reality drum session” with one of the top rock drummers in the world, Neil Peart Drums Vol. 2 The Grooves gives musicians an opportunity that’s not only a dream come true for Rush fans but anyone looking for album quality rock drum loops for their music.

The sample library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $59 USD (Rex/Apple Loops/Wave) / $49 USD (RMX).

For a limited time Sonic Reality and eSoundz.com are offering an additional free set of 72 loops taken from the Rush song “YYZ” in their R.A.W. series Rex, Apple Loops and Wave formats. These exclusive drum loops are currently not available in any Neil Peart Drums products or anywhere else.

eSoundz releases Classic Rock Piano and Ocean Way Drums SE, ReFills for Reason

eSoundz Classic Rock Piano & Ocean Way Drums SE

eSoundz has announced the release of two new ReFills for Propellerhead Reason: Classic Rock Piano and Ocean Way Drums SE.

The Classic Rock Piano from Sonic Reality is an audiophile 6-velocity multisampled instrument recorded by legendary producer / engineer Ken Scott (The Beatles, Supertramp, David Bowie, Elton John, Pink Floyd and more), the artistic hand behind our EpiK DrumS collection.

This classic Steinway grand piano was recorded at Emblem Studios in Calabasas, California, a recording studio space formerly known as American Recording, where many legendary artists have recorded: Carlos Santana, Billy Preston, Three Dog Night, Bonnie Raitt, Meat Loaf, Joe Cocker, Rob Thomas among many others. The piano was recorded through the studio s famous Trident A Range console using the same microphones and miking techniques that Ken Scott has used to record on famous classic rock records. A world class expressive piano instrument, the all new Classic Rock Piano is ready to be the centerpiece of your next piano-based masterpiece. You can also purchase this product for the Yamaha Motif XS and XF at Motifator.com. Coming soon for other formats!

The Classic Rock Piano ReFill is available to purchase for the introductory price of $69 USD (MSRP $99 USD).

Ocean Way Drums SE is a collection of three libraries for both Reason and Infinite Player for Kontakt.

Each Volume includes 5 stereo drum kits recorded with 3 different ambiences (15 total kits per volume) at the legendary Ocean Way Recording Studios in Los Angeles. Ocean Way Drums SE was created by acclaimed producer/engineers Allen Sides and Steven Miller in the famous Studio B of Ocean Way Recording. The remarkable acoustics of Ocean Way s historic Studio B enabled each instrument to be recorded at the optimal distance and angle – and with the microphones that best captured the full frequency and dynamic range of that instrument. Ocean Way Drums SE puts the sound and power of Ocean Way Recording, the most awarded studio complex in the world, right in your hands! For the Infinite Player version, the Infinite Player is required, but for a limited time, we will include the Infinite Player for free if you do not already have it (a $50 value!). Also coming soon for SampleTank!

Ocean Way Drums SE is available to purchase at the introductory price of $79 USD per volume (MSRP $99 USD per volume).
