New York Studios Vol 3 SDX
By Toontrack

What is it?
Toontrack's latest SDX has been designed as a prequel to the Superior Drummer core library - New York Studios Vol 1 - Avatar. 

Unlike The New York Studios Volume 2, which was recorded at the now closed Hit Factory NY and Allaire studios, New York Studios Vol 3 has also been recorded in the New York Avatar Studio; with the same team of engineers and legendary drummer Nir Z, making the library fit perfectly in the New York Studios volumes.

Avatar Studios is known for having one of the world's finest acoustic environments for recording and has won several industry awards. Since its inception in the 1970s, it s hosted bands and artists like Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Journey, Kings of Leon and The Clash.

Who's it for?
Containing 18 GB of uncompressed drum sounds, this pack has been perfectly designed to allow for first time SDX buyers, as well as enhancing the libraries of current Superior Drummer and New York Studios SDX owners.



What makes it different?
New York Studios Vol 3 contains three full drum kits (Ludwig, Slingerland, Rogers) plus additional snares and several setups of different cymbals. The pack includes another handy MIDI library, played by session drummer Nir Z, as well as presets for instant mix-ready sounds.

The drums were recorded through a Neve 8068 console with the signal chains going through modern and vintage studio gear by an engineer/drummer team that has decade's worth of experience behind the console and in the tracking room.

As an additional enhancement from Volumes 1 & 2, New York Studios Volume 3 comes with an even more extensive set of available mixing channels, allowing for bigger and more powerful sounds and control (see comparison chart below).
