In what has to be the most historic set of recordings made for a sample library to date, Spitfire Audio proudly presents three legendary drummers recorded in one legendary location, Headley Grange. Anyone with a modicum of historical rock music knowledge knows that this former Victorian workhouse, a private — some say haunted — residence nestled in the heart of Englands rural Hampshire, has played host to some of the most influential Sixties and Seventies recording artists that this country has produced.
The Grange is an exhaustively produced drum library that aims to pick up where those legendary bands left off. To see what other legendary drummers would make with the space and their searing talent and to see what new definitive and classic sounds could be made in this hallowed space.
Spitfire welcomes Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Roger Taylor Of Queen, and dance stalwart Andy Gangadeen whose numerous percussive adventures include work with Massive Attack, Chase & Status, Rudimental and Labrinth.
The Grange is made up of 6 multi sampled, uber realistic and springy out of the boxy kits, with every hit performed by these legends. So youre not playing Chads kit, youre playing Chad playing Chads kit! An embarrassment of loops and phrases which all interlock together with a mixed and mixing system that either gives you quick instant gratification or deeper control of the host of rarefied mics used via Neve and API pre-amps to a pristinely maintained 2 vintage Studer tape machine.
As always we've strived to make something that just works, gives you the tools you need to get into the sounds and make them you're own without having to roll your sleeves up. Blake has done us proud with this stylish and intuitive GUI that gives you help and guidance at every step of the way thanks to those gorgeous little "i"s
