30GB of 24-bit/48Khz samples featuring 9 drum kits on 4 Dual Layer DVDs.
Meticulously recorded in the same Ocean Way Studio B where artists like Radiohead, Green Day, and Eric Clapton have created hit records, Ocean Way Drums Silver provides you with 9 virtual drum kits, each with snare on and snare off configurations. It gives you a total of 30GB of content on 4 dual-layer DVDs and works with all major DAWs, supporting RTAS, VST, Audio Units), as well as standalone for Mac and PC. The nine Ocean Way Multitrack Drum Kits include 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 13, and 16—all in 24-bit/48k audiophile samples with switchable mapping for GMap, I-Map, Roland TD20 VDrum Map.
Recorded by Grammy-Award winning engineer/producers Allen Sides (Phil Collins, Alanis Morrissette, Count Basie) and Steven Miller (Suzanne Vega, Dave Matthews Band, Pink, Chicago), Ocean Way Drums puts the sound and power of Ocean Way Recording (the world s most awarded studio complex) in your hands. 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. Three sets of stereo room mics picked up Studio B's natural ambience at various distances from the drums, and when those room sources are blended together, the range of tonal colors and spatial depth is enormous.
Discrete Recording/Mixing Technique
Sides and Miller developed a unique, multi microphone recording and mixing technique that provides unlimited flexibility. Utilizing up to 13 separate mono and stereo sound sources per instrument, this technique enables you to independently control and adjust each drum and cymbal within the kit from tight and dry, all the way to wide and ambient.
Each drum kit has 6 "mix presets" to instantly provide balanced, record-quality mixes. The mixes start dry and in your face, and progress up to huge room sounds. Presets can be changed either as an entire kit, or, per individual drum. And, because each drum and cymbal's sound sources are completely discrete, mixing options beyond the presets is limitless.
Ocean Way Drums provides 3 highly expressive maps. GM Map (General MIDI) is the standardized layout for all MIDI controllers. I-MAP is our proprietary MIDI note mapping layout for the keyboard that provides the highest level of performance variations and articulations to create incredibly expressive drum tracks that feel and sound like the real thing. The V-Drum Map has been programmed to work with Roland's top-of-the-line TD-20 V-Drums° electronic drumkit. A high level of real performance variations and comfortable range of positions for each drum provides for great dynamics and serious playability.
