(mtebaldi | Posted 2011-02-07)
Scandinavian software company Toontrack started the year with two new releases that aim to facilitate composition of drum tracks from the studio production perspective. Unleashed in mid January, S2.0 Presets – Bulb brings Misha “Bulb” Mansoor’s years of experience in crafting complex drumtracks for progressive metal projects into 5 unique presets. Now Toontrack gives Rock musicians and producers a hand with the release of the Rock Songs MIDI Collection.
Superior Drummer is the company’s masterpiece in virtual drum solutions. The software not only facilitates the creation of beats using its professionally recorded drum sample library, but also offers a powerful tool for mixing the samples and pre-programmed MIDI grooves. Misha’s Producer Preset is the sixth addition to this collection, and helps Superior Drummer users easily obtain a great sounding kit from it. Misha is the prolific musician and producer behind metal projects like Periphery, Haunted Shores, and Of Man Not Of Machine. He is widely own for his work on progressive metal syncopated rhythms, inspiring guitar tones and epic drum sounds. Bulb’s S2.0 Producer Presets helps drum tracks cut through and stand out in a sea of distorted guitars, swift time changes and guttural vocal commonly found on this aggressive music genre. S2.0 Presets – Bulb is now available for $15 at toontrack.com
