Killer Drums on Hallowed Ground

Note: This is a Kontakt library to be used within Kontakt 4 or 5, or with Kontakt Player (free download).

Headley Grange. The name alone conjures images of John Bonham's thunderous performances on several legendary Led Zeppelin albums. That's why Spitfire Audio chose this stately Victorian residence (with its unique acoustics) as the setting for The Grange. This sample library packs your arsenal with a veritable history of rock drums in a single plug-in. Virtuoso drummers Chad Smith, Roger Taylor, and Andy Gangadeen were invited to participate in the project, which was recorded by Nick Taylor through Neve and API preamps to a meticulously maintained 2" Studer analog tape machine. The results - well, take it from Sweetwater: they're breathtaking. Your music will soar to new heights with Spitfire Audio The Grange.

Outstanding drummers, recorded in a legendary space

It has been four decades since Headley Grange was used for recording, and Spitfire Audio was honored to be invited to make one last set of recordings there. Naturally, given the mansion's historic significance, Spitfire set about assembling a cast and crew that befit such a lofty endeavor. The drummers were Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Roger Taylor (Queen), and dance maven Andy Gangadeen (Massive Attack, Chase and Status, Rudimental, and Labrinth). The three were thrilled to be on such hallowed ground and gave it their all. Considering the caliber of these musicians, that's saying a lot. These drums sound huge, full of life, and downright stunning. As such, Spitfire Audio The Grange sets a new benchmark in drum sampling that gives you a comprehensive compendium of ultra-playable kits and a sweeping selection of killer loops with a host of mixing options.
