Extract from Music Tech magazine's review of Toontrack Decades SDX...
"Well, it’s beyond special. Decades is an outstanding package that will compliment the SD3 default content to its fullest extent and is flexible in use, whether via DAW or in standalone mode. It offers the control that we all crave, while sounding excellent straight out of the box. If you want more rock and pop sounds for SD3, this will be very worthy, but add in the content from the jazz and soul end of the spectrum, and you have a very comprehensive compendium of superior drums.
Do I really need this?
The very fact that you might be considering this library means that you will have Superior Drummer 3, or you will be considering it as a purchase alongside this expansion pack. The complexity of what Toontrack has achieved with SD3 is not to be understated, and while the initial SD3 pack doesn’t cover all bases, it is excellent and sounds superb.
What Decades does flawlessly is fill in several holes in the sonic palette, and add a large number of grooves to an already brimming library. Used sensibly, you can makeup a track that sounds exactly like a real drummer, but in a room that many of us can only dream of using, with an engineer who one might expect to be choosy about who he works with.
It is a formidable expansion package at a price point which makes it the most outrageous bargain."
