The album everyone knows & loves from Metallica. So simple, yet so iconic. I was a freshman in high school the first time I heard this album and it still holds the test of time today; it's been called Metallica's Dark Side of the Moon. I couldn't agree more and I knew when I started this project I had to work really hard to get the drum sound just right. Toontrack attempted to match the sound in their Superior Drummer 3 Core library with the Man of Sand preset but it still didn't sound quite right. So I spent over a month working on a preset of my own that I feel captures the sound Bob Rock & Metallica created with this album.


Project Information

The Superior Drummer 3 project file will contain the full MIDI drum information with tempo maps of each track as performed on my YouTube channel.  The preset uses the core Superior Drummer 3 library for just about everything but I did have to dig into an additional library to round out the kit.  The Rock Foundry SDX is used for the hi-hat as well as an additional layer on the floor tom.  So for the most part, you can get a good mix of the kit right from the original Superior Drummer 3 library if you do not have the additional SDX library.
