In the R.A.W version of Nick Mason Drums you get 623 high quality stereo grooves provided in three popular formats: Rex, Apple Loops and Acidized Waves. It includes grooves in the style of classic songs that Nick Mason has played on for over 40 years with Pink Floyd! The loops were all performed live in the studio by Nick on his custom Luwdig® “Black Kit” and recorded by Alan Parsons in London.
The drum kit was recorded by Alan Parsons through an EMI TG12345 console, the same mixing desk model used to record “Dark Side of the Moon” in 1973. Using the same microphones and micing techniques, Parsons and Mason were able to revisit the past and recreate a session they’re famous for in rock history.
