Sonic Reality EpiK DrumS: A Ken Scott Collection DVD Details

EpiK DrumS is a deluxe collection of drumkit and groove instruments created with legendary producer and engineer, Ken Scott (The Beatles, Elton John, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Supertramp, etc.) and five iconic drummers known for their work on numerous original classic rock recordings. EpiK DrumS is an advanced virtual instrument designed specifically to realistic drum performances from a MIDI keyboard or electronic drumkit that offers a stunningly realistic emulation of an actual live drum session. EpiK DrumS has captured authentic vintage drum sounds from a diverse range of classic artists containing over 115 GB of drums conveniently preinstalled on a 250 GB portable HD to get you up and running in minutes, not hours or days. Deep levels of velocity and round robin alternating hits provide extreme expression and convincing realism. EpiK DrumS provides the ability to mix discrete microphone tracks for complete engineering flexibility as well as ready - to - go finished album quality mixes from Ken Scott himself.

  • Five legendary drummers: Bill Cobham, Bob Siebenberg, Terry Bozzio, Woody Woodmansey and Rod Morgenstein
  • Superior quality drum recordings of individual hits and grooves from the same session
  • Multitrack recordings provide discrete mic tracks with tempo adjustable REX control
  • Stereo mixes by Ken Scott also provided
  • Over 115 GB preinstalled on a portable hard drive to get you up and running in minutes
  • The closest thing to a live drum recording session available for your computer - based production

If you want to create drum tracks for your music that sounds like you were in a top notch studio with world class drummer, EpiK DrumS is as close as it gets. Produced by legendary producer and engineer Ken Scott (The Beatles, Elton John, David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Supertramp, etc.) and Sonic Reality, EpiK DrumS provides both grooves and hits from the same session for seamless combination and integration into your own original tracks. EpiK DrumS contains amazing performances by five iconic drummers: Bill Cobham, Bob Siebenberg, Terry Bozzio, Woody Woodmansey and Rod Morgenstein. The diversity in these artists' styles provides a rich variety to suit nearly any production that requires top notch live drumming.

Perhaps the most compelling and unique feature of Sonic Reality's Drum Masters Series and this Ken Scott EpiK DrumS collection is the provided discrete mic mixing for both the individual drum hits for MIDI sequencing and the live audio grooves which lock to your host tempo as multitrack REX files. This powerful feature gives you total control over both the mix and the tempo of your drum tracks. The grooves contain the actual multitrack audio from the drummers' recorded performances and not MIDI sequences of individual samples. Should you wish to supplement the grooves with additional parts or sections, complete multitrack round robin samples of each drum is also provided for your own MIDI sequencing. Ken Scott has also created album quality stereo mixes of the tracks as well. Imagine having the choice of a legendary producer's stereo mix of your drums and the source multitrack material for your own custom mixes. EpiK DrumS provides both.

EpiK DrumS includes seven advanced expressive drum kits in the style of artists such as David Bowie, Supertramp, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Dixie Dregs, Missing Persons, Elton John and The Beatles. The sound of EpiK DrumS is stunningly authentic. Sonic Reality hunted down the specific vintage gear used on the original albums that made Ken Scott and these legendary drummers famous and used that gear to record EpiK DrumS. With the recording equipment in place, an all star team including Drum Doctor Ross Garfield was assembled to gather and prepare the instruments for this production. Surgical detail was applied to every aspect of EpiK DrumS from the drum instruments themselves to the microphones to the preamps and outboard gear employed. In addition to classic drum sounds, EpiK DrumS also includes a suite of percussion instruments used in Ken Scott's productions, orchestra chimes, glockenspiel, hand claps, wine glasses, gongs and more.

With the combination of a legendary producer and engineer, five renowned drummers, authentic recordings using the actual equipment from classic albums and multitrack REX control, EpiK DrumS is the closest thing to conducting a live drum recording session in a top notch studio with the best drummers in the world.
