Joe Barresi Evil Drums for BFD Sound Library at a Glance:
  • An engineering/producing legend
  • Proven rock recording techniques
  • Quality drums from great manufacturers

An engineering and production legend
Joe Barresi is synonymous with great rock production, having engineered and produced some of today's greatest modern rock bands, including Tool, Bad Religion, Queens of the Stone Age, and many more. He applied his techniques (and gear choices) to this great collection, putting his stamp on its sound and, well, bringing the rock!

Proven rock recording techniques
Barresi 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 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.

Quality drums from great manufacturers
The 70GB of samples on Joe Barresi Evil Drums for BFD were taken from recordings of 64 drums and cymbals, played by Bobby Jarzombek. Drums/cymbals are included from Gretsch, Tama, Pork Pie, Ayotte, Drum Workshop, Zildjian/Noble & Cooley, Ludwig, Zildjian, and Paiste. Astoundingly accurate and amazing-sounding, these samples were recorded with as many as 250 velocity levels, giving you great sound and a huge range of expression.
