Hi, I am looking closer at the Simon Phillips Studio Drums which the marketing states were recorded at his Phantom Recordings Studios. Can anyone confirm, are the choice of effects presents and effects chains also something he did for the products, or was this chosen by the Steinberg product devs?
How important could this be? If you like the choice of effects or effects chain, and the overall sound of the drums, use it. Otherwise, you can create your own processing.
Personally, I have often used this library, but by creating my own mix with my choice of effects.
I have a lot of respect for Simon Phillips and Steinberg, but I prefer to be creative and use the quality tools they offer me in my own way.
I thought maybe worth learning and piggy backing off his 40+ years of experience mixing and engineering drums in his studio.
