Discrete Recording/Mixing Technique
Audiophile gurus, Allen Sides and Steven Miller developed a unique, discrete multi microphone recording and mixing technique. Utilizing up to 13 separate mono and stereo sound sources per instrument (including 3 sets of stereo room mics), this technique captures the sound of each instrument with startling audiophile clarity and enables the end user to independently adjust each drum and cymbal within the kit from tight and dry, all the way to wide and ambient.

Microphones used for recording Ocean Way Drums were hand picked by Allen Sides from his personal collection.

Recording Console
All audio was recorded through Studio B's custom, one-of-a-kind console, considered to be the most astonishingly clear board in existence. Very little eq or compression was used, but when it was, highly modified classic gear from Neveยฎ, APIยฎ, Ueriยฎ, Fairchildยฎ was utilized.

Natural Room Acoustics
The drums were placed in the rear right corner of historic Studio B, considered by most producers and engineers to be the "sweet spot" with the most low end punch.

Because the wonderful acoustics, each instrument was able to be recorded at the optimal distance and angle and with the microphones that best captured the full frequency and dynamic range of that instrument.

The multiple sets of stereo room mics picked up the room's natural ambience at various distances from the drums. Each separate room source presents its own unique sonic color, and when the various room sources are blended together, they present unlimited tonal options.

Mix Presets
Allen Sides and Steven Miller created 6 "mix presets" per drum kit to instantly provide killer sounding, record quality mixes. Presets can be instantly changed either as an entire set, or, individually per instrument within a drum set. There are 6 separate pre sets for both the mono snare drum (57) and the stereo snare drum (C12A).

Mix Flexibility
Beyond the pre sets, adjustments can easily be made and saved to all of the individual sound sources within EACH instrument of EVERY drum kit. This, along with control of pitch, pan, envelope, velocity and balance of the stereo submasters, gives users total control of the mix and provides unlimited possibilities.

Drum Replacement
Triggering Ocean Way Drums from existing audio is best accomplished in conjunction with Wave Machine Labs' Drumagog. You can transform any drum performance recorded in a less than optimum environment into that "major label" sound. Step by step instructions for both Mac and PC users are included in the manual.

Snare Presets: 57 and C12A
Six close microphones were used to record the snare drum - two C12A's about eighteen inches above the drum head, two custom 57's two inches from the head, and two 55P's five inches under the bottom head.

Here is a list of 12 different mic combinations that we suggest you experiment with:
Stereo C12A's (L&R) with Stereo under snare mics (L&R) Preset
Stereo C12A's (L&R) with Mono under snare mic (C)
Mono C12A (C) with Stereo under snare mics (L&R)
Mono C12A (C) with Mono under snare mic (C)
Stereo C12A's (L&R) with no under snare mics
Mono C12A (C) with no under snare mic

Stereo 57's (L&R) with Stereo under snare mics (L&R)
Stereo 57's (L&R) with Mono under snare mic (C)
Mono 57 (C) with Stereo under snare mics (L&R)
Mono 57 (C) with Mono under snare mic (C)
Stereo 57's (L&R) with no under snare mics
Mono 57 (C) with no under snare mic Preset
Snare On and Snare Off

Snare On and Snare Off versions refer specifically to the sound of the Kick Drum and the Toms. Snare On means that the Kick and Toms include the rattle of the snare drum. Snare Off means that the snares were turned off during the striking of the Kick and Toms.

Multi Channel Output
Ocean Way Drums is a multi output virtual instrument. Every channel in the mixer can be routed to a separate stereo or mono input in your DAW. Even though the default is stereo, you have custom controll over your output configuration and can make simple pre sets for any and all situations.

Loading the Sounds
You can load the sounds of Ocean Way Drums either as individual instruments, or as entire drum kits

Two types of patches are included: Instruments and Multis
Instruments are individual drums (kick, snare, hat, toms, ride cymbal, crash cymbals.)
Multis are entire Drum Kits - a combination of individual drums

Custom Drum Kits
Building custom kit multis are a snap. You can make changes to an existing kit or put together a kit from scratch. It's easy to "mix and match" instruments from one kit with instruments from another. The sheer number of different kicks, snares, toms, hats and cymbals provides many possibilities.

Mapping / Performance
All drum kits and individual instruments come mapped for both MIDI keyboard and drum pads. Ocean Way Drums' custom programming helps you perform realistic drum tracks - down to even the most subtle nuances of the groove.

When choosing kits and individual instruments in the browser, you will see two options: V-Drum (drum pads) and I-MAP_GM (keyboard).

Keyboard map users have the option of switching between I-MAP and GM on each instrument or the entire kit.

GM Map (General MIDI) is the standardized layout for MIDI keyboard. Most existing MIDI files are in this format.

I-MAP is a proprietary MIDI note mapping layout for the keyboard that provides more performance variations and articulations than any other drum product. Featuring a powerful layout that places drums in their most intuitive position, I-MAP enables you to create incredibly expressive drum tracks that feel and sound like the real thing.
