Platinum Samples is proud to announce the release of its first BFD Expansion Pack featuring multi-platinum award producing recording engineers. The first engineer featured in the series is the legendary Andy Johns, whose classic rock credits include The Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street, Goat's Head Soup, Led Zeppelin's II, III, IV, Physical Graffiti, and Van Halen's For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge as well as the recent number one Billboard album Godsmack IV.

Recorded in one of LA's greatest rock studios through an all class-A Neve 80 series console and Studer analog tape machine electronics, Andy Johns creates his legendary rock drum sounds once more on the Andy Johns Classic Drums BFD Expansion Pack, available now for $249.95.

Recorded in one of LA's greatest rock drum rooms using a classic Neve 80 series console and through the electronics of a Studer 800 24-track tape machine, the Classic Drums expansion pack truly demonstrates why Andy has achieved legendary status. Using no compression and only the console preamps and EQ's, and with each drum meticulously tuned by Andy himself.

To ensure that the drums would fit into a mix, and not to record the drums in a void, the drum sounds were checked with a rhythm section (drums, bass and guitar). The result is an expansion pack where you can load a drum kit and not necessarily need to be an accomplished engineer to have some of the greatest recorded drums available in one of the most sought after drum rooms in the world on your own tracks.

Available on 6 DVD's with unmatched detail, the Platinum Samples expansion pack has 4 installation options to best suit your needs with the 70GB SuperSize installation having as many 250 velocity levels, while the 30GB Small install option has a maximum of 20 velocity levels. The Classic Drums expansion pack includes over 250 MIDI Grooves and Fills and a QuickTime video featuring recording tips by Andy Johns.

Platinum Samples has also posted over 190 additional MIDI Grooves and Fills, and more drum samples on their web site for registered users.
