Sonic Reality announces Drum Masters Silver, Gold & Platinum Editions

Sonic Reality has announced the imminent release (this month) of the Studio ProFiles "Drum Masters" Silver, Gold and Platinum Editions featuring legendary drummers' kits and grooves.

Drum Masters provide multi-track drum kits and multi-track Rex 2 grooves playable from one virtual instrument plug-in for creating realistic drum tracks. Bundled with Sonic Reality's new Infinite Player powered by Native Instruments Kontakt Player, the Drum Masters range of products offers the authentic sound of legendary session drummers recorded in some of the best studios in the world.

Drum Masters Silver Edition (MSRP $299)

Featuring legendary drummers' drum kits and grooves in 24 bit Stereo Rex 2 format mapped in beat mode across the keyboard and as playable kits in the supplied "Infinite Player" plug-in. It includes sample material from Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson), Steve Gadd (Paul Simon, Steely Dan), Danny Gottlieb (Pat Metheny Group), Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel), John Blackwell (Prince, Diddy), Nick D'Virgilio (Genesis, TFF, Spock's Beard), Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick) and Ed Greene (Barry White, Steely Dan).

Users will be able to continually expand their bundled Infinite Player with additional stereo and multi-track drum kits, and grooves.

Drum Masters Gold Edition (MSRP $499; or "Kits Only" for $399)

The Drum Masters Gold Edition includes everything from the Silver Edition plus a variety of multi-track drum kits and grooves. From the powerful 3 snare Yamaha kit of Jerry Marotta with world pop rhythms in the style of Peter Gabriel to the R&B pop sound of John Blackwell to the classic funk rock sound of Ed Greene to progressive rock drumming with Nick D'Virgilio and modern jazz with master cymbalist Danny Gottlieb, the Gold Edition offers a wide variety of killer drum sounds for every need. With 150 multi-track grooves from each drummer and the associated drum kit from the session you can build a drum track with seamless transitions between the MIDI playable kit and the original audio grooves all while having full discrete mix control of the mic channels in both. Stick, brush, blastick/hot rods and mallet played kits are also included.

Drum Masters Platinum Edition (MSRP $995)

The Drum Masters Platinum Edition includes everything from the Silver and Gold Editions plus additional multi-track and stereo grooves and more stellar sounding studio drum kits with discrete control of the mics. Special additions include samples of a 6-tom Gretsch kit in a large room modeled after the famous Town House studio in London as well as a vintage Premier kit with the addition of Roto Toms and Timbales as toms similar to those played by drummers Bill Bruford, Phil Collins, Nick Mason, Neil Peart and other great drummers. Includes extra drum sampling sessions done with the help of the "Drum Doctor" Ross Garfield and recorded at the esoteric Lawnmower Studio in Pasadena where Nick D'Virgiilio and Dave Kerzner of Sonic Reality used to record with Kevin Gilbert.

The Platinum Edition includes over 2,000 multi-track drum grooves. Additional MIDI grooves will be made available for all three versions at www.sonicreality.com.

Notes:

  • Stereo Kits: Multi velocity stereo drum kits sampled at the same session as the loops. These kits have been mixed in stereo for use with the matching grooves and have been mapped in both GM and IMAP formats.
  • Multitrack Kits: These multi velocity multi-track drum kits have entirely discrete mix control. They were recorded along side the grooves for seamless integration and can be played in both GM and IMAP formats.
  • Stereo Grooves: Artist grooves menu mapped in Kontakt for easy use. These grooves are Rex2 format and adjust to your host tempo. Use these grooves with the matching drum kit for the ultimate drum sequencing experience.
  • Multitrack Grooves: Multi-track drum grooves in Rex2 format. These grooves are menu mapped for easy use with your MIDI controller. They are the same grooves as the Stereo version but with fully discrete mix control between microphones. (HH, BD, SD,Toms, Percussion, etc.).
