Sonic Reality's Neil Peart Drums Vol. 1: The Kit released

Tue, Aug 31, 2010@10:54AM | comments removed/disabled

Last week Sonic Reality announced via a press release that their new Neil Peart series drum sample instrument library Neil Peart Drums Volume 1: The Kit is now shipping for the Infinite Player software powered by Kontakt. The version for FXPansion's BFD software was announced as shipping earlier this month. For information on purchasing the product visit or check out this list of Sonic Reality retailers. I'd first reported that Sonic Reality had completed a Neil Peart drum sampling session engineered by Nick Raskulinecz way back in April of 2008 but it's taken over 2 years to develop the end product. You can listen to 4 different demo samples at this link. There's also a behind-the-scenes video from the recording sessions for the sample library posted to Sonic Reality's YouTube channel. The video shows Nick Raskulinecz and the Sound Reality guys setting up the mics and then a couple of minutes of Neil pounding away on his kit.

Thanks to BW&BK for the heads up.
