Native Instruments has launched a rework of their Abbey Road Drums instruments: The Abbey Road Drummer Series.

These new instruments are designed to allow both experienced and hobbyist musicians and producers to create authentic acoustic drum tracks, combining sampled drums, recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London, with a comprehensive Groove Library and a detailed Mixer Section with studio effects. This “Drums, Studio, Drummer’ approach was pioneered recently in Native Instruments” Studio Drummer, and the new Abbey Road Drummer instruments use the same technical framework, based on Kontakt 5.

The instruments run in the latest version of Kontakt 5 or the free Kontakt 5 Player. Owners of existing Abbey Road Drums products are entitled to a free upgrade to the new version of the instruments they own.

The Abbey Road Drummer Series is now available at the NI Online Shop on DVD and as a download for US$119. For more info go to .
