In the tradition of other SCARBEE products such as J-Slap n’ Fingered, R.S.P’73 and W.E.P., Scarbee Imperial Drums sets several new benchmarks in the arena of drum sampling. Recorded in 24bit/88 khz high definition resolution (down-sampled to 44.1 khz for release), S.I.D. captures the true full dynamic range of every drum, providing nearly 30,000 individual drum samples on 3 DVDs. These DVDs represent the distillation of over 1 terabyte of recordings. As with all other SCARBEE offerings to date, rather than offering a ‘grab bag’ of many instruments which have been sampled to an ‘acceptable’ level, S.I.D. focuses the combined energies of the entire production team on a single DW® drum set and Paiste® cymbals, with additional snares and an alternate DW® bass drum. The result is a sampled drum kit which is rendered to a level of detail previously unavailable to sample users.
