Platinum Samples - Engineered Drums for BFD

Joe Barresi Evil Drums

Tracking Notes






Joe chose to record the Evil Drums collection at his two favorite drum rooms, using the exact same recording process he's used on numerous album projects. With expert use of the studios' Neve consoles, analog tape and his own (secret) esoteric collection of mic preamps, equalizers and compressors, Joe has created a diverse collection of drum sounds. And with individual control of the direct tracks, the stereo room and the compressed mono room in BFD it's possible to create an amazing amount of different styles from the same kits.
