One of the most profound expansions in the Superior Drummer Line.

Five complete kits, a total of 17 snare drums, 31 cymbals and five hi-hats – all captured on 26 separate channels and spanning a staggering 63 gigabytes of raw, unprocessed sounds. Needless to say, The Progressive Foundry SDX continues the tradition of its sibling The Metal Foundry SDX and gives you one of the most profound expansions in the Superior Drummer Line.

The Progressive Foundry SDX was recorded at the renowned Sing Sing Recording Studios in Melbourne, Australia, by engineer/producer Forrester Savell. With credits on defining albums by Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus and I Am Giant, Savell is not only heralded for having shaped a few of the most sonically progressive productions in the modern Australian metal and heavy rock scene; his forward approach has also brought him to international fame. And it’s not by chance that he picked the Sing Sing Recording Studios for this project. During its more than 35 years in business, the studio has collected a vast selection of top tier microphones and rare outboard gear. Combined with the dense wood-lined walls in its perfectly balanced A-room, Sing Sing has proven time and time again to be the perfect environment for broad, transparent drum recording. The drums, which were sampled by Karnivool’s own Steve Judd, were scoured from all four corners of Australia and present a massive collection of the best in rare, vintage and modern.

The Progressive Foundry SDX gives you 63 gigabytes of raw power, ready for you to harness, mold and shape into your own mixes. Whether you’re looking to make progressive metal, heavy rock or mix anything from tight to ambient drums, the powerful framework of Superior Drummer 2 leaves you at the helm – you decide.
