The Rooms of Hansa SDX from Toontrack features drums that have been expertly produced by Grammy Award-winning recording/mixing engineer Michael Ilbert in one of the most iconic studios in the world: the Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin, Germany. With a broad and handpicked collection of drums captured in all four rooms on the studio premises, this SDX showcases an outstanding width in regard to both tonal range and ambience.

 

THE FOUR ROOMS


The Marble Room

A reflective medium-sized room offering a large natural reverb, perfect for rock drums or any song in need of a nice ambience. The concrete walls offer a nice amount of reflection whereas the hardwood flooring effectively breaks up the diffusion and keeps the decay in check. 

 

The Meistersaal

Located directly below the main/live space is the Meistersaal – the indisputable crown jewel of the Hansa legacy and arguably one of the most iconic recording rooms in the world. The majestic ambience of the Meistersaal can be heard on seminal works by the likes of Nick Cave, U2 and R.E.M., just to name a few. Still to this day, the Meistersaal remains a vivid Berlin landmark and is a common stop on guided tours of the city. Since this room no longer is officially an operational part of Hansa, the amount of projects recorded here are few and selected very carefully. However, with the help of Michael Ilbert and the owners of Hansa Tonstudios, Toontrack were given the unique opportunity to capture drums in this historic space.

The large room offers a unique ambience ranging from medium to large sounding drums, which will sound great on any song.

 

The Live Room

From the mid-’70s and through to today, the cream of the crop of European and international artists have recorded timeless works in this room. In here, anything from insanely popular German schlager to pop, rock and metal has been captured. For drums, it’s a perfect room – spacious but with a relatively moderate ceiling height, making it ambient without sounding overpowering. Simply put, the definition of a perfectly crafted and versatile drum room. 

 

The Vocal Booth

This room makes for a tight and clean tone perfect for beat-making, or any song in need of a dry drum sound. 

 

DRUMS


Kits recorded in the Marble Room


The Twin Shell Kit

This is a very special kit, custom-built by Berlin-based boutique drum manufacturer Udo Masshoff. The stand-out feature in these drums is the the so-called “twin shells.” These shells make use of both steel and maple, resulting in drums that produce very warm, powerful and unique tones with an amazing frequency range.

As an alternative, Toontrack recorded the Twin Shell Kit in a more damped way by applying tea towels to the toms. They also added Michael Ilbert’s personal and favorite Masshoff snare drum, the mighty 14x8 ̋ “Big Chief” – a pure powerhouse made of stainless steel.

 

The Acrylic Kit

This is the personal kit of German drummer icon Armin Ruehl and the very same one he’s played on many of his many tours with Herbert Gröenemeyer. The acrylic shells of this kit produce a very direct and focused sound – rich with higher-mid overtones although with a warm, round tone with a deep low-end. To make it even more interesting tone-wise, we added four 6 ̋ acrylic octabans in varying lengths of 8, 10, 12 and 14 ̋ – giving you monster kit with seven toms.

 

The Rototoms Kit

Why stop at octobans? For the Acrylic Kit, Toontrack also recorded a setup featuring rototoms in 6, 8, 10, 12, and 14 ̋ sizes. These were recorded to go in the standard tom positions and will provide that characteristic, piercing slap sound for the toms. In combination with the thunderous Wahan bass drum, the smack of the Masshoff snare and the soaring voice of the Red Label cymbals, you’ll have a classic but still profoundly unusual kit.

 

Kits recorded in the Meistersaal


The Twin Shell Kit

This is the same kit as the one that was recorded in the Marble Room. In the Meistersaal, though, it has an altogether different voice. It sounds huge! Toontrack also captured it with mallets which again, introduces a completely new voice.

 

Kits recorded in the Live Room 


THE 1970s LA Kit

Early during the planning for this SDX, Michael expressed his desire to record a classic Camco kit in the Marble Room. Toontrack eventually found the ideal one over in the UK and ended up shipping it over to Berlin for the session. This specific set is from the brand’s 1970s L.A. era and this kit is probably best described as the perfect allround choice for a kit. Having a thick and warm sound but still a really crisp finish to its tones, it really works in any mix or style of music.

 

Kits recorded in the Vocal Booth


The Mahogany Stave Kit

This is another choice rather off the beaten track when it comes to drum selection – but for a reason. For the tight and dry space of the Vocal Booth, Michael Ilbert specifically wanted to record one of the beautiful high-end kits of Californian custom drum builder Sugar Percussion. These shells, all individually crafted from solid mahogany chunks, really sound unlike any other drums – extremely articulate, nuanced and deep. The beauty of these drums is that they project a wonderful wooden tone even when played with very low velocities, something Michael was specifically looking for in the Vocal Booth tones.

 

The 1960s Italian Kit

This Meazzi Wooding kit from the 1960s is truly something of a sonic revelation. The moment you hear it you’ll know why. It has a deep and mellow tone that fit perfectly for this confined space. This is the second set from Armin Ruehl’s personal collection and one that Michael Ilbert knew very well from previous recordings of his. He had a clear plan of how to capture it for this SDX and it came out beautifully.
