Toontrack SDX: Decades by Al Schmitt -
Expansion Pack for Superior Drummer 3
Decades of Experience.
A massive collection of drums recorded by one of the most prolific audio craftsmen of our time: Al Schmitt.
The Decades SDX was recorded at Capitol Studios and comes with five drum kits, all handpicked to represent a specific sound or era in Al’s career. Expect a palette of immaculate drum sounds encapsulating not only a lifetime of experience working at the apex of the industry but just as much a personal and reflective collection of kits that in a way represents his entire body of work. From jazz and big band to rock, fusion, pop, funk, and AOR – the Decades SDX covers all the styles that can be traced back to Al’s illustrious lifetime achievement.
