Toontrack have collaborated with an array of incredibly talented producers and engineers over the years and judging by the teasers the Swedish drum experts have been dropping on social media recently, it looks like their next release will follow suit...
What we know so far...
The Decades SDX expansion for Toontrack Superior Drummer 3 has been recorded with the legendary Al Schmitt whose illustrious career has brought well over 700 recordings, 160 gold and platinum albums and a whopping 23 Grammy Awards. He's worked with a stupendous list of iconic artists including Elvis Presley, Tony Bennett, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Natalie Cole, to name just a few.
"We couldn’t be more humbled and proud to have his name grace a Toontrack SDX. Prepare your Superior Drummer 3 for some epic sounds." say Toontrack.
Earlier this week, Toontrack shared an excerpt from an interview they've recorded with Al Schmitt... "If I want a brighter sound, I use a brighter microphone or I move the mic around until I get the sound I want. When I started, we didn’t have equalizers, so it’s the way I learned.”
It's impossible not to admire and have the greatest respect for Al Schmitt's experience and knowledge and we can bet the Toontrack Decades SDX will be one of their finest yet. It's coming very soon and we can't wait to tell you more!
