WHAT IF YOU RECORD DRUM MACHINES IN A PRO STUDIO?

We wanted to combine classic drum machines ( 15, to be exact ) with the the organic ambience and warmth of studio recorded drums.

So, we took a club PA to two different studios, turned it up really loud, and recorded the results: through high-end mics, vintage consoles, valve pre-amps, bass-amps and even acoustic drum shells.

Classic drum sounds as you've never heard them before.
