In order to make Roots SDX, Toontrack went to Nashville’s Blackbird Studio to record the ultimate jazz library but walked out with something far bigger; drums that transcend the narrow confines of a genre and rather define an era - an age of music spanning from jazz, blues to hip hop and rock. Meet the Roots SDX for Superior Drummer 2.0, likely one of the world’s most comprehensive drum sample libraries ever recorded. See what happened behind the scenes at the recording and get retrospect comments from the man behind the wheel, recording engineer Chris Grainger!


  • Recorded by Roy "Futureman" Wooten in Blackbird Studio Nashville, TN
  • Approximately 36 GB of raw, unprocessed sounds
  • A total of 23 separately recorded, tweakable channels available in the mixer
  • Custom MIDI included
  • Large selection of different drums and cymbals (Pearl, Gretsch, Ludwig, Zildjian, Paiste)

In the Mixer:

  • 16 mono, 7 stereo
  • Decca Tree (3 mono mics)
  • Acoustic live reverb chamber
  • 3 different ambience stereo mic pairs
  • 3 different OH mics
  • 3 different kick drum mics
  • 3 different snare drums mics
  • 1 extra "trash" mic

Recording Gear:

  • Console - Neve 8078 - Originally placed in Motown Studios (LA), then owned by Donald Fagen. The Neve 8078 was the last of the "80 series" hand-wired analogue mixing consoles designed and manufactured by Neve for high-end recording studios during the 1970s. These consoles are considered by many experts to be the Rolls Royce of desks and are highly sought after. Each console took several months to build using over 2,500 hours of highly skilled labour and top quality components. It would now be uneconomic to manufacture such equipment to this standard.
  • External Preamps
  • Shadow Hills Gamma (nickel transformer) - Used on the toms, similar to api,neve style pres, but have variable (nickel, steel), or discrete output tranformers.
