Platinum Samples is thrilled to announce Jim Scott's Rock Drums for BFD 2.1
"One of L.A.'s most respected producers, engineers and mixers — and one of the busiest — Jim Scott has built his rep off of crisp, live-off-the-floor sounds and attendant good vibes. Scott picked up his first Grammy in 1995 for engineering Tom Petty's Wildflowers, scoring two more for his work with Santana on Supernatural and the Foo Fighters' One By One. In 2007, he doubled his Grammy total, scoring a hat trick for his recording of the Dixie Chicks milestone Taking the Long Way. That album was the most recent of dozens of projects Scott has done with Rick Rubin during the past two decades, from Petty and Johnny Cash to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Slayer." (Bud Scoppa, Mix Magazine July 2007)
Jim Scott's Rock Drums features a selection from Jim's personal collection of classic drum kits from the 50's, 60's and 70's recorded at his own PLYRZ Studios using his Neve 8048 console as well as samples played by Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Average White Band, Eric Clapton) recorded at Sound City Studios (RHCP, Tom Petty, Nirvana) using their Neve 8028 console. The drums compiled in the Rock Drums expansion pack have been played on albums from Robbie Robertson, The Dixie Chicks and Barenaked Ladies to the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Rock Drums offers full discrete multi-channel drums for ultimate mix control with as many as 256 velocity layers for true variation in playing without requiring any velocity scaling. Split into two volumes, Rock Drums Volume 1 includes a brush and blast sticks kit for a total of 59 drum and cymbal options. Rock Drums Volume 2 features three great kits offering a choice of 25 drums and cymbals.
Rock Drums Volume 1 is delivered on seven, and Volume 2 on four DVD's and allow 4 installation options to best suit your needs, with the Supersize installation requiring 80 GB and 38 GB respectively.
Jim Scott's Rock Drums is available immediately for pre-release. The volumes are available separately for $249.95 (Volume 1) and $129.99 (Volume 2) — or as a combination pack for $319.99
