Jim Scott Rock Drums Volume 1 for BFD
One of L.A.'s most respected producers engineers and mixers — and one of the busiest — Jim Scott has built his rep off of crisp live-off-the-floor sounds and attendant good vibes. Scott picked up his first Grammy in 1995 for engineering Tom Petty's Wildflowers scoring two more for his work with Santana on Supernatural and the Foo Fighters' One By One. In 2007 he doubled his Grammy total scoring a hat trick for his recording of the Dixie Chicks milestone Taking the Long Way. That album was the most recent of dozens of projects Scott has done with Rick Rubin during the past two decades from Petty and Johnny Cash to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Slayer. (Bud Scoppa Mix Magazine July 2007) Jim Scott Rock Drums features a selection from Jim’s personal collection of classic drum kits from the 50’s 60’s and 70’s recorded at his own PLYRZ Studios using his Neve 8048 console and analog outboard gear as well as samples played by Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Average White Band Eric Clapton) recorded at Sound City Studios (RHCP Tom Petty Nirvana) using their Neve 8028 console. The drums compiled in the Rock Drums expansion have been played on albums from Robbie Robertson The Dixie Chicks and Barenaked Ladies to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Volume 1 includes almost 80 gigabytes of uncompressed drum samples recorded with as many as 256 velocity levels featuring 40 drums and cymbals including kits played by Chad Smith (RHCP) and Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Eric Clapton). One of the kits is recorded with both sticks and brushes and another with both sticks and blast sticks for a total of 59 drum and cymbal choices.
