Toontrack celebrates 'Metal Month' with Rock Foundry SDX expansion for Superior Drummer 3

This is the first-ever sample library to bear Bob Rock’s sonic seal.

Each November, Toontrack hosts a month-long celebration of all things metal, and this year is no different.

To honour 2017’s Metal Month, the music software maker has announced that is will be offering up weekly releases throughout November, with a “very special” expansion crowning the end of the month: the first SDX expansion for Superior Drummer 3.

On November 21st, Toontrack will release The Rock Foundry SDX by Bob Rock.

The Rock Foundry SDX features a staggering 65GB of raw, unprocessed drum sounds recorded by arguably the most notable, influential and sought-after engineer/producer of our time: Bob Rock.

While Metallica’s groundbreaking “Black Album” may be one of the more commonly known works in his discography, Bob Rock’s engineering and producing credits stretch all the way back to the late ’70s and include some of the best selling acts in rock history: Survivor, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe, Bryan Adams and many, many more.

In all of his productions, a common denominator is phenomenally engineered and mixed drums. In fact, his work with Metallica and Mötley Crüe may very well have set a new standard as to how we mix drums to sit in a mix. Needless to say, his influence on the sound of hard rock and metal as we know it is monumental.

Toontrack’s release will be the first-ever sample library to bear Bob Rock’s sonic seal.

Recorded at Rock’s choice studio The Warehouse in Vancouver, BC, the expansion is designed to give you the most flexible selection of drums, ambiences and options possible. It’s configured as two individual SDXs, one ‘Main’ and one ‘Mono.’ The ‘Main’ features six kits captured with a traditional multiple microphone technology whereas the ‘Mono’ configuration was recorded using a minimal setup.

In addition to the seven individual kits, a large selection of extra snares, kicks and cymbals are provided, making The Rock Foundry SDX an incredibly broad palette of raw material to use to craft drum mixes within the powerful framework of Superior Drummer 3.
