Meet the man behind the kit, Matt Halpern. He has made a name for himself in the band, Periphery with whom he has toured extensively across the world. Their third and latest double album Juggernaut (Alpha/Omega) entered at number 15 and 16, respectfully, in the Top 200 Billboard charts. Matt is also well known within the music industry as an educator and representative for Mapex Drums, Meinl Cymbals, Evans Drumheads, and Promark Drumsticks.
Matt's signature sample pack features Mapex Saturn (Maple/Walnut) shells, his signature Black Panther Wraith snare drum and a full range of Meinl Byzance cymbals. Adam 'Nolly' Getgood made a name for himself in the production world delivering hard-hitting, luscious-sounding records. He has worked with artists such as Devin Townsend, Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Good Tiger, Bleed From Within and many more. Known for his keen ear for drum tones, Adam's productions contain powerful and organic timbres and preserve each musician's unique qualities.
As an advocate of using drummer's natural performances, he has spent years experimenting and developing the best ways to tune and capture the tones needed for the best sounding drums possible.
The examples to the right feature the GGD Matt Halpern Signature Pack. Each example shows versatility in usage such as replacing drums completely, augmenting room sounds, and fully programming drums from scratch.
