Sonic Reality has announced the release of Neil Peart Drums Vol. 1: The Kit, a music software recreation of the DW drum kit of Rush drummer Neil Peart.

It comes as a sound library for sample playing software such as BFD2 and Kontakt using Sonic Reality’s expandable Infinite Player library.

 

Neil has collaborated with Sonic Reality and producer/engineer Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains) to bring the sound of Neil’s "Snakes and Arrows’ Custom DW Drum Kit into the digital domain. With features such as deep level dynamics, humanized random alternating hits, multiple mic mixing and more, this sampled kit is a recreation of Neil’s acoustic set as used live on tour and in the studio.

 

Producer Nick Raskulinecz engineered the sample sessions with Neve mic preamps and deluxe vintage tube mics provided by Ocean Way Recording’s Classic Rentals in LA. With the assistance of Don Lombardi and DrumChannel.com, every detail of “The Kit” was captured both in high-resolution audio, the company says.

 

“The Kit” features 8 Toms, an array of cymbals including 3 Chinas, 4 Crashes, 3 Splashes, Ride, 2 Snares, Massive Kicks, Percussion – such as Cowbells and more. It comes mapped in GM, iMap, V-Drum and a Custom Map mode to be controlled by any electronic drum kit. It includes both discrete mic mixing and album-quality presets right out of the box for instant gratification, Sonic Reality assures.
