SDX ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION
Captured in the same room, with the same scrutiny for detail and the same 11.1 microphone positioning philosophy as the Superior Drummer 3 core library, the Orchestral Percussion SDX is not just the perfect complement to the Superior line of sounds, it’s a revelation in terms of flexibility and playability within the Superior Drummer 3 framework.
Given the range and sheer volume of content, the Orchestral Percussion SDX comes configured as a factory bundle of two separate SDX libraries, both available directly upon installation from the drop-down menu in Superior Drummer 3. The first volume includes the more fundamental or leading instruments, such as timpanis, bass drums, taikos, snares and toms, while the second volume covers the triangles, woodblocks, wind chimes, shakers, bells and other instruments often used as effects or to embellish or accentuate arrangements.
All instruments were captured by two generations of the Ouderits family: Leo, Tim and Tom – all three of them skilled percussionists with a deep understanding for instrument selection, composition, performance and above all, love for the craft.
The Orchestral Percussion SDX was produced by Patrick Lemmens, a classically trained engineer/mixer/producer whose credits include countless motion picture scores, classical projects and orchestral arrangements – many of them immortalised within the four walls of the Galaxy main hall.
This is not just a sound library, it’s arguably the most all-encompassing and carefully captured collection of handpicked orchestral percussion instruments on the market.

AUDIO PERFECTION IN UTTER SILENCE......
The Orchestral Percussion SDX was recorded in the same room as the Superior Drummer 3 core sound library, the main hall at Galaxy Studios in Belgium. With its 330-square-meter room measuring eight meters from floor to ceiling, it is the ideal location for capturing immersive audio of the utmost quality.
In addition, the entire studio complex is built on springs to ensure that the outside interference is literally nonexistent. In fact, with only 14 dBA of environmental noise, the main hall at Galaxy Studio is the most quiet recording space of this size in the world. This in itself is a pivotal factor in making the extreme velocity detail translate to its full capacity. Perfect acoustics, balanced reverberation and second-to-none recording technology – Superior Drummer 3 and the Orchestral Percussion SDX called for a superior studio, and got exactly that.
IMMENSE & IMMERSIVE
Just like the Superior Drummer 3 core sound library, the Orchestral Percussion SDX was captured with close and ambience microphones as well as eleven additional room microphones set up in a surround configuration.
Together, these two libraries present the market’s first drum and percussion sound sources recorded in immersive sound technology, in the same room and ready for use in anything from stereo to 5.1, 9.1 and all the way up to 11.1 systems. The combined power and application of these two libraries is near infinite.
