Acclaimed producer/engineers Allen Sides and Steven Miller assembled their favorite drum kits and developed a unique, discrete multi microphone recording and mixing technique.

This technique captures the sound of each instrument with startling audiophile clarity and enables the end user to independently adjust each drum and cymbal within every kit from tight and dry, all the way to wide and ambient.

Sides and Miller also created 6 "mix presets" per kit to instantly provide record quality mixes.

Allen Sides is the owner of Ocean Way and Record One studios in Los Angeles. In addition to being considered the recording industry's leading microphone expert, he is a Grammy winning engineer/producer that has recorded over 500 albums, with stars in every genre. Artists include Alanis Morrisette, Green Day, Quincy Jones, Eric Clapton, Beck, Phil Collins, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, Foo Fighters, Sheryl Crow, Frank Sinatra, Faith Hill, Frank Zappa, Mary J Blige and Count Basie.
