Details about the Kits

Ocean Way Drums DTXPANSION Kit 10m

Top drum programmer David Polich created this Medium Dry to Ambient Mix collection specifically for Yamaha's DTX electronic drums based upon top quality sample libraries from Ocean Way and Sonic Reality. As Sonic Reality CEO put it: "Though virtual instruments like Ocean Way Drums DL were designed to be played best from a quality electronic kit such the DTX, we thought it would also be great to offer top quality sounds in native DTX format so they can be loaded right into the kit's RAM."

Sonic Reality's Drum Masters DTXPANSION Style Kits 5 Pack
