The Farm Stone Room Reverb

With Multi-platinum Producer/Mixer John Kurzweg (Creed, Eagle Eye Cherry, Godsmack)

The Farm Stone Room recaptures the magic in the band Genesis' own studio, "Fisher Lane Farm" in the UK, where they enlisted the original engineer Hugh Padgham to build a stone-walled drum room to the same specs as the one at The Town House recording studio in which Phil Collins made history tracking his explosive drum sound for the worldwide hit song "In the Air Tonight."

And while both studios are sadly now gone, IK was given exclusive access to the Farm before it closed forever to preserve its distinctive sound in a brand-new plug-in. The Farm Stone Room is here to give your drum tracks the sonic impact that only this type of rare stone live room can offer. Awash in the unique reverb of the studio's stone-walled drum room and crushed by compression, it has become perhaps the signature drum sound of the ′80s.

Multi-platinum Producer/Mixer John Kurzweg has worked with many big names in music, including Creed, Puddle of Mudd, Eagle Eye Cherry and Godsmack. We caught up with John about The Farm Stone Room and here's what he has to say about loving this unique stone-walled reverb that recreates the massive drum sound of the '80s.

I was able to dial in a great room sound for drums in seconds. I love the sound quality and all the important parameters are right there where you need them. With the added 3 band EQ + parallel compression on the stereo and mono room mics, it's so easy to give drums the perfect space for your mix.
