Steven Slate Blackbird Studio Expansion for Steven Slate Drums Software

Add a host of incredible drums to your SSD library with the Blackbird Expansion. Choose from various vintage mics, rooms, and kits to get the perfect sound.

In the Spring of 2014, Blackbird Founder John McBride recorded the Blackbird Drums Expansion with drummer Chris Tyrell of Lady Antebellum for the STEVEN SLATE DRUMS (SSD) Virtual Instrument. Utilizing three of Blackbird's classic rooms including the chambers of rooms A and D, tons of vintage mics and gear, classic drum kits from an era spanning fifty years, and of course, John's amazing engineering talent, Blackbird Drums is one of the most amazing drum libraries you'll ever experience.
