Ocean Way Drums is the brainchild of studio owner Allen Sides, one of the audio industry’s most esteemed figures. The concept is simple – make the sound of Ocean Way, the world’s most awarded studio complex, available to artists who are serious about their music.
An enormous library of killer sounds is available via the 19 kits, each with 12 presets in both snare on and snare off versions. These presets instantly provide shocking impact and spatial depth. And for those who want to experiment, adjustments to the individual instrument faders and stereo sub mixes offer unlimited possibilities. Imagine booking time in one of the world’s most revered rooms, using the best sounding drums and then having multi platinum engineer/producers record and balance your session. Ocean Way Drums can help your music sound like a million bucks.
Creating The Ultimate Expressive Drum Kit
Allen Sides and Steven Miller chose to collaborate with Sonic Reality because they demand the very best. Ten years ago Sonic Reality created the first high-end drum kit sample library that incorporated expressive performance articulations of the drum hits across the keyboard. Sonic Reality’s proprietary I-Map™ technique is the gold standard of drum mapping. And for Ocean Way Drums, an additional, state of the art map was created just for Roland® V-Drum users.
With expert programming in formats such as Native Instruments Kontakt™ 2, Ocean Way Drums incorporates extraordinary natural room ambiance, high resolution audiofile sound and extended flexibility to make it THE industry standard in sample drum kits.
