Toontrack SDX New York Studios Vol.3 review by MusicRadar

A product from

The New York Studios series is the centrepiece of Toontrack's amazing Superior Drummer virtual drum kit system, the core library itself constituting Volume 1 (recorded at Avatar Studios), and the first add-on SDX being Volume 2 (recorded at Hit Factory NY and Allaire).

Volume 3 sees Toontrack returning to Avatar to capture three full vintage drum kits and some supplementary snares, as well as a sizeable collection of cymbals. We say 'returning', but actually, the original sessions were done in 2006, with engineers Neil Dorfsman and Patt Thrall retrieving the recordings from the vaults last year for production - so it's really a prequel.

With the full install weighing in at 18GB, NY3 is very much "more of the same", certainly, but Superior has always been all about lovingly recorded acoustic drums rather than crazy electronic sounds or percussive esoterica, and as any Superior user will attest, adding to the library with a new kit or two is always a thrill.

Pro’s:

  • Very well recorded. 
  • Covers a broad spectrum.

Con’s:

  • Big install.

Our Verdict

Another fine addition to the SDX line!
