Modern Drummer Snare Drum SelectsPlatinum Samples is pleased to announce they have been selected as the online distributors for Modern Drummer Snare Drum Selects, Volume 1 for FXpansion BFD2 and BFD Eco.

Developed to meet the needs of professional record producers and sound engineers, as well as drummers and home-recording enthusiasts, Modern Drummer Snare Drum Selects, Volume 1 is a BFD2-compatible collection of studio-quality sound samples taken from a dozen state-of-the-art drums, all of which have been chosen by the editors of Modern Drummer magazine for its prestigious ‘Snare Drum of the Month’ column. The drums represent a selection of some of the latest and greatest in metal and wood shell designs and tonalities, and were digitally recorded and mastered by leading drum-technology specialist, John Emrich (frequent Modern Drummer contributor and creator of many of FXpansion’s BFD2 sample libraries).

Each drum used in this collection was meticulously tuned and recorded in a multi-microphone format to showcase its unique sonic properties and offer the end user maximum flexibility. There are snares-on samples of each drum, plus alternate sounds with sticks, brushes, mallets, and hands. This collection efficiently and economically offers the highest levels of sonic variety and quality to virtually any producer, programmer, or player.

Recommended for use in home and professional studio-recording situations, as well as for easy triggering of high-definition drum sounds in electronic-drum performance, programmed beats, or sound replacement of recorded drum tracks.

Modern Drummer Snare Drum Selects, Volume 1 is now available for instant download after purchase for $80.00.
