Woody Woodmansey


This video requires broadband connection and Quick Time 7 or above to view.


Special thanks to Ken Scott, Woody Woodmansey and Sonic Reality for making this feature possible!


This is a greatest "hits" collection unlike any other. Famed producer / engineer Ken Scott has gone back into the studio, along with drummers, Terry Bozzio, Bill Cobham, Rod Morgenstein, Bob Siebenberg and Woody Woodmansey, to recreate the drum sounds of some of their classic recordings. This video series documents the recording of the library.


Using studios that closely matched, acoustically, the originals and the same type of kits, equipment and microphones as they used back in the day, they have given today's modern musician an incredible link to the past.


This collection, co-created with Sonic Reality, contains both multi-sample drum kits and a variety of signature drum grooves from each of the incredible musicians in this collection.
