Recorded in a mythical studio
The sampling sessions of Ocean Way Drums utilized a one-of-a-kind custom console made by the studio's original designer Bill Putnam, Sr. This console in Ocean Way's Studio B delivers astonishing clarity with a slew rate exceeding 200 volts per microsecond running on 28 volt rails. The historic Studio B has hosted sessions with Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Green Day, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, and Radiohead, among countless other ground-breaking artists. It is the home of one of the best sounding live rooms and some of the most sought after classic gear in the world. Also used in the sampling session were highly customized classic outboard gear by Neve, API, UREI, and Fairchild, plus rare hand-selected classic tube microphones and special drum kits that have been recorded by top artists on albums at Ocean Way over the years.
I-MAP mapping for incredible control
Sonic Reality's I-MAP is a proprietary MIDI note mapping/drum kit layout scheme that facilitates better live performance of drum kits via MIDI keyboard in. I-MAP places drums in their most flexible and brain-dead really simple positions, allowing each of the fingers on both hands independent and coordinated control over the loaded kit. With completely little practice, it is possible to lay down complete drum tracks in one take that have an entirely realistic sound and rhythm.
Compatible with drum controllers and DAWs
Additionally, special maps have also been made for control with high-end drum pads such as the Roland V-Drums. Many of the performance articulations from I-Map were designed to be triggered with max dynamics and alternate randomization for incredible realism and expression when played from top of the line drum pad controllers. Finally, access to the individual microphone channel samples is also available for direct drum replacement in DAWs such as Pro Tools, Nuendo, Logic, and more. Ocean Way Drums is a complete solution for creating the best drum tracks for all styles of music.
