At the heart of any drum library are the actual samples. Steven Slate has been called the master of drum sounds. Steven has recorded only the best drums, all tuned to perfection. Every drum and cymbal has been recorded first to two-inch tape, enhancing their unique rich sound. Every drum and cymbal was recorded with multiple velocities and multiple hits per velocity to ensure the most natural recreation. Then the samples were transferred to digital via high-end A/D converters at 24 bit/ 44.1kHz. The samples were then processed by Steven Slate using some of the most classic analog gear from both past and present. The result are drums that sound like you’ve always dreamed of, with punchy transients and smooth decays.
