In 2005 Toontrack� Music was contacted by Pat Thrall with a
request to record drums for the Superior Drummer� software engine at
the New York studio where Pat had his professional home at the time.
We all knew Pats work (with Glenn Hughes, Black Crowes etc) and jumped
at the opportunity to work with one of our heroes. Matters weren´t
made worse by the fact that Pat introduced another long time hero of
ours to add his talents, passion and experience to the recordings,
Neil Dorfsman. Neil has been around since the 70s recording and
producing artists like, Kiss (oh the stories�), Bruce Springsteen,
Dire Straits, Sting etc. Enough said?
Pat also brought along renowned live and session drummer Nir Z whose
credits include such diverse acts as Genesis and Joss Stone to play
his GMS drums for the sessions.
The team was finalized with Mattias Eklund and Henrik Kjellberg from
Toontrack� Music and together they conducted a number of recordings
during 2005. The sounds for EZdrummer� were recorded and produced at
Avatar Studios New York (formerly known as Power Station) on the 1st
of October 2005 by Pat Thrall, Neil Dorfsman and Nir Z. Needless to
say the recordings ended up every bit as great (and better) as
expected. The timeless quality of the sound, the consistency of the
playing and recording and the legendary atmosphere from a studio that
has seen many of the greats create their masterpieces within its walls
all make for a worthy start of the next generation of Toontrack�
acoustic drum samplers.
