Drummer Nir Z is one of the most sought-after drummers in the industry and mix engineer Jeff Juliano is a studio legend. If you’ve ever listened to Jason Mraz, Blake Shelton, Genesis, PVRIS, or Steven Lee Olson, you were probably listening to the work of Nir and Jeff. These two made history in NYC when they recorded John Mayer’s debut album, Room for Squares. As you might know, this record went on to become one of the highest selling records of all time and the drum tones on this record became some of the most coveted drum tones in the genre for years. That Sound is honored to have these two icons back together again to deliver such an exhaustive sample library in our catalog. These sounds just keep coming at you. Waves and waves of kick, snare, tom, hat and cymbal options all packed inside this one library. We’d like to think you won’t need another acoustic drum library for a long time. The Nir & Jeff library comes equipped with multi-velocity snares and kicks, and an entire line of cymbals and toms. These drum tones are honest, pronounced, and ready for your next studio or writing session.
