These drums sound amazing. Recorded at the famous Blue Jay Recording Studios near Boston, all drums and all cymbals are stereo, un-looped, and multi-sampled (multiple samples from soft to loud hits). Even the snares are sampled at multiple places on the drum. This attention to detail is guaranteed to give you the most realistic, most playable drum sounds ever. Whether practicing, recording or performing, DM10 drummers can access dozens of drumsets with rich ambience and brilliant timbres.*
Like other Alesis sound libraries, SONiVOX Blue Jay Studios Drums feature Dynamic Articulation technology, which enables Alesis multi-samples to change their timbre in concert with dynamic shifts. For example, light playing and hard hitting produce different degrees of head and shell sounds on drums, and stick versus wash on cymbals.
This is where Carly Simon, Alice Cooper, Joni Mitchell, Amy Grant, Boston, and many other great musicians have recorded and mixed their records. And this is where the Blue Jay sounds were captured by renowned engineer, Mark Tanzer (NRBQ, Carly Simon, Patty Larkin, Jerry Marotta, Livingston Taylor, Lyle Mays and others) and his arsenal of world-class gear to get the best, cleanest, punchiest recordings possible. Taking full advantage of Blue Jays excellent wood, stone and glass recording rooms, SONiVOX recorded natural, small-ambient and large-ambient versions of first-call session drums.
