Toontrack's latest SDX offers a broad, handpicked collection of drums captured by Grammy award winning mixing engineer Michael Ilbert, at one of the most prestigious studios in the world, Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin. Say hello to The Rooms of Hansa SDX.
The Rooms of Hansa SDX features superb high quality drum recordings made in four very famous rooms at the Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin, Germany. The recordings were made by Swedish born, Berlin based Michael Ilbert who has his own mix room at the studios, and a very impressive discography credit including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Backstreet Boys and Adele!
Of the four rooms, the most famous and impressive is the Meistersaal, a 1910 built concert hall with stunning acoustics; many artists including David Bowie, U2, Iggy Pop favoured this recording space. The Marble Room uses Italian marble on the walls and hardwood flooring to break up the diffusion, making it the perfect ambience for controlled but still reverberant rock drums. The small Vocal Booth produces dry, punchy and warm drum sounds whilst the Live Room is a spacious and versatile drum room.
As expected, Michael Ilbert and Toontrack used top of the range equipment and drum kits for the SDX so for more of an insight into this exciting product, take a look at the video below!
