Rich has become on of Country Music’s foremost drummers in the past decade, winning Modern Drummer’s “Country Drummer of the Year”. Redmond’s signature sound can be heard on countless Jason Aldean singles, as well as many other top Nashville recording artists' hits.

 

Recorded at Black River Entertainment’s Ronnie’s Place, this 37 GB uncompressed library features Rich’s best DW drum kits, as well as an array of microphone positions, dynamic layers, and mixing controls to achieve a Class-A drum sound for music productions in Country, Rock, Pop, Metal, and any other genre requiring high quality, dynamic drum sounds.

Painstakingly recorded and edited over eight months, this drum pack is our biggest and most complete product BY FAR. This is also our first library to join the roster of Native Instrument’s Kontakt Player, allowing users without KONTAKT 5 to use these drum sounds.
