Features three full vintage and custom kits (Requires Superior Drummer software)

The first of the New York Legacy Series appeared as the core library in Toontrack´s critically acclaimed Superior Drummer software and was closely followed by Vol 2 – the first SDX expansion pack to be released. New York Studios Vol 3 is the much anticipated continuation of this series, which focuses on capturing the best studios in the New York area.

Recorded in the renowned Avatar Studios and featuring several vintage and custom kits, this session is best described as a prequel to that first core library which was also recorded in Avatar studios and by the same team, engineer duo Neil Dorfsman and Pat Thrall together with drummer Nir Z.

Avatar Studios is known for having one of the world´s finest acoustic environments for recording and has won several industry awards. Since its inception in the 1970s, it´s hosted bands and artists like Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Journey, Kings of Leon and The Clash.

The drums were recorded through a Neve 8068 console and signal chains of modern and vintage studio gear by an engineer/drummer team that has decades worth of experience behind the console and in the tracking room. Between them, they have worked with artists covering the whole gamut of genres, from classic rock (Kiss, Meatloaf, Bruce Springsteen) to soul (Joss Stone, John Mayer) and modern pop (Beyoncé, Katy Perry).
