A note from the engineer:
When I started thinking about cataloging all the samples I have accumulated over the years, I was caught up on how to classify the samples. After looking at the bulk of the work, I noticed that about a third were from API consoles, a third from Neve Consoles, and the remaining third from other consoles like my own SSL, Tridents, and other custom consoles. So I decided to put out 3 Volumes classified by the consoles they were recorded through, along with a 4th “Bonus” Volume of one-off samples that I have used over the years, along with some misc samples.
Over the years, I have had the privilege to work at some of the finest recording studios around, including Blackbird, Omnisound, Sienna Sound (old Quad), Ardent, Dark Horse, and my own studio here in Nashville, along with countless others. All of these samples were recorded using only the best preamp and signal paths, including the highest quality converters and microphones available. Neve, API, Trident, SSL consoles were used.
As I reflect on all the sessions over the years it took to accumulate these, I often think of the engineers that taught me so much in my early career. I was lucky enough to be mentored by some great engineers / producers including John Hampton, Joe Hardy, John Fry, and Paul Ebersold. John Hampton was one of the great engineers of his time. He taught me almost everything I know, and still use to this day, about getting great drum sounds. Sadly, John is no longer with us. John was a great teacher, and I’ve always strived to put into practice all the things he taught me about being an engineer.
