RECORDED AT ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS

All drums were recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, UK, using period equipment and recording techniques.

An iconic symbol of the music industry since 1931, Abbey Road has been the location of countless landmark recordings by artists such as The Beatles, U2, Kate Bush, Oasis, Kanye West and Radiohead, to name just a few.

Abbey Road has pioneered many studio techniques and technologies, and is widely recognized as one of the most advanced recording, mixing and post-production complexes in the world.

THE DRUM KITS

Two highly sought-after vintage kits, each with a choice of two snares, deliver two highly distinctive 70s drum sounds. The Open Kit is a Ludwig Vistalite Tequila Sunrise from 1972 with the big, roomy sound of classic rock. The Tight Kit is a vintage 1970s Premier model with the tight, dry, punchy sound that was popular throughout the 70s.

The drums were recorded in up to 30 different velocity layers, with up to six alternative hits (round robins) for each drum. Find out more about the drums and recording equipment.

NEW: THE MIXER SECTION

Create the perfect drum submix completely within the instrument! All ABBEY ROAD DRUMMER instruments feature a dedicated Mixer Section and a range of high-quality studio effects, including tape saturation, convolution reverb and three big-league effects: a top-quality studio EQ, a high-end studio compressor and the awe-inspiring TRANSIENT MASTER.

And if time is tight, Mixer and Effects Presets provide instant pro sound with precision mic levels, the perfect blend of close and room mics, and just the right effects to set it all off.

NEW: COMPREHENSIVE GROOVE LIBRARY

The right drum sound is only part of the equation. All the updated ABBEY ROAD DRUMMER instruments provide a new Groove Library, full of beats and fills to match the sound of the drums. These MIDI patterns were played live by professional drummers – find the beat that suits the track you’re working on, choose fills and variations to match, then drag and drop into your host sequencer.

And if you’re a drummer yourself, just hook up your e-drums and you’re ready to go.
