THE ULTIMATE DRUM KIT


Hans Zimmer Drums features Jason Bonham on his exclusive DW Vistalite kit recorded at the legendary "Newman" Stage at 20th Century Fox, The Sony Scoring Stage and an enormous space on Hans' own lot dubbed "The Cathedral", recorded and mixed by multi Grammy winning engineers: Alan Meyerson, Steve Lipson and Geoff Foster.


This is the ultimate follow up to our multi award winning Hans Zimmer Percussion anthology. Expertly recorded (29,477 samples, 35.6 hours, 34.3 GB WAV format, 22.7 GB NCW compressed format (stereo only) as per Hans' direction, with multiple round robins, dynamic layers, beater types and playing styles. With GUIs and scripting designed back in London by the finest sample developers in the world.



The Newman Stage at 20th Century Fox, one of the oldest and with a 700 square meter live room, one of largest recording studios in the world. Host to recordings by Monroe, Presley, Williams, and movies from the Matrix trilogy to The Simpsons. With rarefied microphones, bespoke Air Montserrat pre-amps via a renowned Neve console.


The Sony Stage is a 600 square meter live room is also one of the largest recording spaces in the world and remains almost entirely in its original condition. Only a few details of the room itself have been altered through the years, but the technical equipment is up to the most modern of standards. The studio, which is still known as the MGM Stage by many industry professionals, is equipped with a cutting-edge Neve 88R. To date, the largest recording session at the Sony Stage has hosted well over 150 musicians and vocalists playing at the same time. And in view of its immense capacity, it is no surprise that many classic film soundtracks have also been recorded here: ET, Schindler's List, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Black Hawk Down.



"The Cathedral" - a large concrete space on Hans' Remote Control Productions lot. Truly an extraordinary, unique and exclusive location.



The library also features some exclusive additional bonus content from Hans himself including some hand crafted modular synth drums programmed by hand from his legendary modular synth at Remote Control Productions. We've also included the Fox stage's bass drum (commissioned by Alfred Newman for the infamous 20th Century Fox Theme).


The library consists of numerous microphone positions (as detailed below) mixed in stereo by Grammy and Oscar winning engineers Steve Lipson & Geoff Foster.
