Ken Scott - Drum recording feature with Billy Cobham

Bill Cobham session recorded at Long View Farm Studios, Boston

Special thanks to Ken Scott, Bill Cobham 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.

Since 1974, Long View Farm Studios has been a residential recording complex on 100 acres of rolling grass hills not far from Boston, Massachusetts. With over 250 gold & platinum records created there, they are very serious about providing artists the kind of creative vibe that draws out their best. Visit their myspace page.
