It´s that time of year when Toontrack drag out their leather studded belts, practise their death growls, and prepare for a month-long bangover (aka ´metal-neck´).... welcome Metal Month 2017!
The Swedish developers behind this year´s software smash – Superior Drummer 3 have already revealed they´ll be releasing the first SDX for the award-winning drum production software – The Rock Foundry.
Recorded with Bob Rock (Metallica, Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe), the expansion is due for release on 21st November and packs in an incredible seven kits and a plethora of extra snares, kicks and cymbals. This promises to be an incredibly broad palette of raw material to craft your drum mixes within the powerful framework of Superior Drummer 3. Click here for more details.
But before that, today Toontrack have kicked off their Metal celebrations with the release of the Death Metal Drum MIDI Pack.
Designed for use with EZdrummer or Superior Drummer (v2 or 3), you´ll find a full remit of death metal drums from bombastic and ultra heavy to savage tempos, hammering bass drums and blistering fills - all performed with razor-sharp execution by Dave McGraw, drummer of death metal band Cattle Decapitation.
