Software Native instruments - Studio Drummer



STUDIO DRUMMER is the perfect realization of a drummer in software, with everything you need to create realistic acoustic drum tracks — top-of-the-line drum kits, detailed mixing options, and a ready-to-go groove library, packed with authentic beats of all colors and flavors.

It's much more than state-of-the-art sampled drums. Thanks to more than 3,500 authentic grooves, STUDIO DRUMMER makes it easy for anyone to produce lifelike, dynamic drum tracks. And the on-board mixer and powerful effects deliver enough usability, versatility and tweakability to meet the demands of eclectic modern producers.

THE DRUMS
STUDIO DRUMMER gives you three premium acoustic kits — a Pearl Masters Premium Maple kit, a Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute kit and a Sonor SQ2 Drum System. The kits are set up with Paiste, Zildjian, Sabian and Masterworks cymbals, and snares by Sonor, Mapex, Ludwig, and Masshoff. To round things off, you also get percussion, with tambourine, sticks, cowbell and handclaps.

All drums were painstakingly recorded using the best mics and outboard gear at Teldex Studios, in Berlin. The result: Over 17 GB of pristine, 24-bit drum samples, capturing the unique sound and responsiveness of the original kits.

THE STUDIO
Behind the glass, STUDIO DRUMMER provides a dedicated mixing environment. All drums close mic’d, plus adjustable snare bleed, stereo overheads, room mics for ambience and an additional mono mic on the entire kit. Mixer presets, with precision mic levels, room sound and effects, provide fast-track settings for a wide range of sounds.


A high-quality studio effects section gives you warm tape saturation, convolution reverb and three big-league effects: the SOLID G-EQ, the SOLID BUS COMP compressor and the awe-inspiring TRANSIENT MASTER.

THE DRUMMER
What good is an awesome drum kit without the skills to play it? STUDIO DRUMMER gives you the chops on a plate, with over 3,500 drum patterns and fills in a wide range of genres and styles. All grooves were recorded live especially for STUDIO DRUMMER, for 100 percent realism.

Find the beat that suits the track you’re working on, choose fills and variations to match, then drag and drop into your host sequencer. And if you’re a drummer, just hook up your e-drums and you’re ready to go

Thanks Graham, at first look it offers a lot, let´s wait to listening to the samples though.

I wonder if there is a way to use features like convolution reverb, Tape saturation, comp,...., on audio tracks (guitars, bass, vocals..), well, I guess not, but I had to ask.

Well the reason I comment is that you make the same comment in any thread where Toontrack are mentioned.
So to avoid the mindless tedium you could do one of two things.
Don't post the comment in Native Instruments discussions.
Or compose a fresh Toontrack slapdown.
A change is as good as a rest.

Being a session drummer my self and hearing all the plugs out there, well this is the first time I can say that they have done something out of the ordinary here and really sounding authentic.
Hats off NI!

I have Superior Drummer 2 and Steven Slate Drums.

This looks/sounds really really nice. I have Komplete 6, I might upgrade someday...

Argh, as soon as I get what I think is the best sounding library. The "Oh, well now I definitely won't need another one" set, this comes out.

That's the whole gear business/video gear business/any kind of business model to keep us buying new stuff..when in fact many of us have more than we need to make good recordings. I have Superior, Addictive, Battery, SSD, DrumCore, and probably a couple of others I've forgotten I own and still I look at this and say, hmmm, that looks like something I could use...maybe need....I'm feeling manipulated and it's only 6:30 in the morning.

Maybe you shouldn't post in non-Toontrack drum sample threads like normally as well. Someone mentions Toontrack and it's like the Bat signal for you.

I looked up the Teldex studios website, where they have pictures. It looks like a nice big gigantic room. I hope the room mics in Studio Drummer have captured that. The audio demos sound good, but I wasn't hearing any prominent "gigantic room" type sounds.

It looks good, but not like we don't have enough Drum workstations already. I guess it's about time NI got into the market with this. These drums do sound nice.

What got my attention was the mention of Kontakt 5. Dang, It just got into K4...
Wonder whats new about this version.

Toontrack is like the grandfather of drum workstations! They were the first company to offer this kind of control for Drum samples.

Superior 2.0 has been our for quite some time. Don't you worry. Superior 3 will happen soon enough. Can't really get much better but if it does then it will be pretty much perfect.

Really needs a built-in reverb. All those Producer Presets are kind limiting since reverb can be a big part of a drum sound.

SD2 needs distortion also. The best interface by far is Addictive drums, I hate their room sound though, very genric.

I just love the Abbey Road 60s and modern. It nice looking but the hardest to work with. But the sound is so much more real than anything else. More than SD2 The hats are what makes it sound so realistic i think. This new Studio Drummer is going to be THE ONE for me. Cant wait

Why would you want a reverb in Superior Drummer when you could use a dedicated reverb plugin in your DAW?

I always multi out superior to pro tools and then send the drums that I want to the oxford reverb... I love this set up.

completely legitimate question no snarkyness intended. (sometimes its hard to tell on the internet).

I personally don't think it needs reverb. The room mics alone are usually enough.
