Toontrack has released three soundsets for Superior Drummer and the New York Studios SDX libraries.
Today Toontrack Music announced the immediate release of three individual collections of presets for the Superior Drummer library and the SDXs in the New York Studios suite. The presets were all specifically designed to showcase the incredible ambience in three of the world’s most renowned recording rooms: Avatar Studios, Allaire Studios and the Hit Factory.
This suite of preset packs is following the launch of the New York Studios Collection bundle, which was released last week. This package includes the award-winning Superior Drummer software as well as the entire suite of sound libraries in the New York Studios series. Six (6) kits and three (3) studios spanning a staggering approx. 50 GB of unprocessed, meticulously recorded drums.
The soundsets are available to purchase for $15 USD / 12 EUR each.
Toontrack has announced two new preset packs for the New York Studios Vol.3 SDX.
Available today is a double-release of producer presets for Toontrack Music’s latest Superior Drummer sound expansion, the New York Studios Vol.3 SDX.
The presets were designed by the masterminds behind the recording, engineer/producer duo Pat Thrall and Neil Dorfsman. Between them, they have worked with artists like Bruce Springsteen, Katy Perry, Jay Z, Bob Dylan and Kiss – to name a few!
This collection of ready-made drum mixes will squeeze the most out of your Vol.3 experience and let you in on some of Pat and Neil’s tweaking secrets!
The preset packs are available to purchase for $15 USD / 12 EUR each.
Toontrack has updated its Beatstation virtual instrument to version 1.0.3.
This update is recommended for all users but particularly for those running the latest operating systems released by Microsoft and Apple.
At its core, Beatstation marks the next step in Toontracks evolution of creating virtual instruments that are both simple and effective to use but also very powerful sound design & music production tools.

64-bit hosts support on Mac.
Support for EZX/SDX preset instruments as specified by the library configuration files.

MIDI and REX grooves start from the beginning when not syncing to the host timeline and are played for the first time.
