The Indie ADPak from XLN Audio was recorded at SGS Studio A (Swedish Gramophone Studio) in Gothenburg, Sweden. Only vintage analogue equipment was used to capture the essence of indie in every drum recording. The drums were recorded through the legendary Neve 8048 Console using rare vintage microphones. The drums were recorded directly to the 2" Studer A80 tape machine, and finally to the Lynx Aurora converters clocked by a Rosendahl Nanosync.
Indie ADPak also features "Xtra", an Indie tambourine recorded with a right sweep, left sweep and standard hit stroke in multiple layers and round robins. This makes it possible to play or program very realistic tambourine patterns for that real Indie vibe.
The drum kit used to make Indie ADpak was a blue sparkle ICE Custom Shop drum kit. It is a hand made modern vintage rock kit with newly made "old school" shells and original vintage Slingerland hardware. The snare is a Premier Keith Moon signature "The Spirit of Lily", part of the rare 8 Piece signature kit. We tried a lot of cymbals for this kit and found the Paiste 2002 and Signature series were a great match however the hi-hat is a vintage Zildjian K 15" for the right crisp sound.
