Toontrack has recently released a new expansion for the Superior Drummer 3 virtual instrument. Featuring 5 drum kits recorded at Riksmixiningsverket in Stockholm, Sweden, the Stockholm SDX comes with kit selections designed to cover anything from mellow to loud.
The SDX includes a broad collection of mix-ready presets for each kit, alongside a custom MIDI library of drum grooves and fills.
All in all, five kits were recorded – each handpicked to complement the others and to serve its own role in what the team set out to capture: a unique palette of beautifully singing drums covering the entire spectrum of tones – from warm, earthy and genuinely sparse to bright, loud and vibrantly forceful.
In addition to the drums, a basic set of grooves performed by sampling drummer Josephine Forsman (known from the Swedish band Sahara Hotnights) as well as a broad selection of presets designed by session engineer Linn Fijal as well as by the Tooontrack sound design team are provided. This all combined will enable you to get started instantly with great-sounding drum beats and mixes that you can use as springboards to venture off into your own unchartered sonic spaces.
From one of the top pop metropolises of the world straight to your desktop, here’s an SDX that decisively underlines that there is absolutely nothing stock about Stockholm. Welcome in to the studio. Have a seat at the console…and start mixing!
The SDX is available to purchase for 179 USD/EUR at distributor PluginFox and from the Toontrack store.
