A massive collection of drums recorded by one of the most prolific audio craftsmen of our time: Al Schmitt.

The Decades SDX was recorded at Capitol Studios and comes with five drum kits, all handpicked to represent a specific sound or era in Al’s career. Expect a palette of immaculate drum sounds encapsulating not only a lifetime of experience working at the apex of the industry, but just as much a personal and reflective collection of kits that in a way represents his entire body of work. From jazz and big band to rock, fusion, pop, funk and AOR – the Decades SDX covers all the styles that can be traced back to Al’s illustrious lifetime achievement.


Produced by 23-time Grammy Award-winning engineer/mixer Al Schmitt
Recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, CA
Five (5) kits
12 snares, nine (9) kicks as well as a broad collection of hi-hats and cymbals
Includes several iconic original instruments, like the original snare drum used by Jeff Porcaro on Toto’s “Rosanna” as well as Steve Ferrone’s personal drum kit
Brushes and/or mallets available on select kits/instruments
Drums from the 1920s through the late 1990s
Recorded with an additional seven room microphones for playback in stereo up to 9.1 systems

Meet Al Schmitt with team and get a glimpse of what happened behind the scenes at Capitol Studios during the Decades SDX recording sessions.


In retrospect, figuring out that Al would end up behind a console is somewhat of a no-brainer. He literally grew up in a studio. Already at the age of seven, he hung out with his uncle Harry, who also was an engineer, to help set out chairs for musicians, clean patch cables and whatever came with being a helper during sessions back then.

This was in the thriving days of the late 1930s New York big band and jazz scene. That scene was buzzing, with loads of work and studios scattered all over the city. From there, his path was pretty much laid out. Working his formative years under the tutelage of many of the era’s legendary engineers, he honed his craft before relocating to California. After that, the rest is music history. For real.

In fact, Al Schmitt’s footprint in the recording industry is hard to fathom or even put down in words. Just the numbers alone are mind-boggling: 727 recordings, 160 gold and platinum albums and 23 Grammy Awards.

Scrolling through his discography is even more daunting – his hands and ears have literally shaped our collective music history. From now immortal icons like Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra and Sam Cooke to Madonna, Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Barbara Streisand and Paul McCartney – Al has worked with them all.

How do I keep only the 28gb. Which files do I delete?
  Banned 22.10.2018 422
There is trick i did before for older archives but i didnt install this one yet. Installer copying *.obw files about chosen installation size, example if it needs 28GB you need to count obw files sizes by queue like soundb1.obw to soundb19.obw, cause each obw file around 1.5-2GB.

He is a Godfather of Mixing Al Schmitt. plain and simple. Cannot be criticised or reviewed. He is IT. 18 hours Mixing in the 50s. We are not worthy.

This comes with SO much extra GB size.

9.1 surround drum room mics? Wow. Overkill. :)
  Member 13.09.2017 3 23
Hell yeah. Glad to see more soundbanks being uploaded. Gonna snag this for certain
  Member 28.11.2016 571
katfiles? rockfile? uploadboy? filefactory? any decent mirrors other than the 2 slowest and most restrictive on Earth?


EDIT: found it on torrent sites (and progressive) had them both within a few hours ;)

Just like with the stock SD3 kits it gives a lot more options with the sound even if you're not doing surround.

On a side note I compared the sound of the small 40GB SD3 factory Lib with the full 230GB factory Lib and I decided on the Full because some of the presets really take advantage of those extra channels and it's such a huge sound, you can always turn them down for a smaller room sound.
