Steinberg Nashville Drums - Electronic Delivery

Drum kit expansion for Groove Agent featuring an authentic drum kit dedicated to contemporary country music productions
MFR# 1143-505

Product Description

The Steinberg Nashville Drums VST Sound Instrument Set for Groove Agent brings you the sound and spirit of world-famous Music City, USA, and puts it right into your productions.

Recorded by Grammy-award-winning sound engineer Chad Carlson at the legendary Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, the drum kit comes with over 8,000 samples and hundreds of grooves that will instantly enhance your productions.

The top-notch recordings with 24 different microphone channels make it universal for all genres: from true organic country that purists long for to pop-flavored country rock. The remarkable room of the studio together with the striking microphone setup and outboard equipment make the sound of the drums stand out in every way.

The 21 Styles that were exclusively recorded for this set are blending rock and country and range from chugging ballads and soulful blue-eyed R&B with country flavor mixed into energetic country rock and radio-friendly contemporary country productions.

Get the authentic sound and groove of contemporary country music as it is produced today with Nashville drums — the backbeat of country.

Nashville drums

In order to capture the sound of contemporary country, all drums were recorded in the Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.

The legendary Studio B with its renowned “live” drum sounds has been the place of choice for many top-class productions for Don Williams, Taylor Swift, Patty Griffin, Elvis Costello, Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, Jamey Johnson, Don Henley, Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town, Blake Shelton, Johnny Cash to name but a few.

The Yamaha drum kit used for the recordings includes 13 kit pieces including two snares that can simultaneously be played and separately be mixed in the dedicated mixer of the Nashville kit. With up to 16 velocities and five round robins per instrument the drum kit sounds amazingly fresh and natural and feels so authentic as if you were actually sitting behind the mixing desk in Nashville.

Distinctive features are the multiple ambient microphones that have been used to cherish the fantastic sound of the room. With close room, far room and roof microphones, several options can be used to vary the sound of the drums extremely from direct and dry to airy and light and everything in between. The additional trash microphone lets you blend this special character to the mix that can make the big difference in the production. The single overly compressed ribbon microphone, just above the kick and below the toms, pointed at the drummer, can be individually blended into the channels of the kick, snares, hi-hat, and all the toms.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
