Ministry Of Rock 2 was put together with one goal in mind: to create a virtual (software) instrument capable of producing sounds that could actually produce a hit record film score without any live drum, bass, guitar overdubs. The articulations & programming were all reverse engineered from actual performances. The 57 gigabyte collection features LIVE technology that enables multi-sampled drums to sound like a live performance.
Produced by Nick Phoenix & recorded at the Legendary EASTWEST Studios by Phoenix, Doug Rogers & Rhys Moody, Ministry Of Rock 2 features some of the industries top players like Shane Gibson, guitarist with KoRn/Stork/Schwarzenator; Greg Suran, guitarist with Goo Goo Dolls/Avril Lavigne/Glee; Doug Rappaport, guitarist with Edgar Winter/Potent; Tal Bergman, drummer with Billy Idol, LL Cool J, Rod Stewart, Terence Trent Darby, Joe Zawinul.
The drums for Ministry Of Rock 2 were recorded in EASTWEST Studio 1 on three large rock kits from DW, Gretsch & Ludwig, along with 6 additional snares. Top vintage & modern gear from Neve, Neumann, Telefunken, AKG, Manley, Fairchild, Royer, Chandler & Meitner were employed for a legendary sound. Repetition samples were recorded for everything as well as extreme dynamics & three mic positions for drums (close + room, close + compressed room) to dial in the desired sound & an ultra-realistic performance. Any drum from any kit can be selected to create a custom kit, plus there are 6 additional snare drums to choose from.
Ministry Of Rock 2 guitars were recorded on Fender Jaguar, Fender Telecaster Thinline, Carvin 7 String, Baritone, Gibson Les Paul & Schecter 7 String through Fender, Divided By Thirteen, Marshall, Mesa Boogie, Bogner & Vox Amps. Samples feature round robin, hammer on & pull off legato, sliding legato & dozens of other techniques. Dual channel recordings let you pick a wicked real amp sound use the direct signal with popular plug-ins.
Ministry Of Rock 2 also includes all of the remastered content from Hardcore Bass & Hardcore Bass XP plus an all-new 5 string Musicman Stingray bass with 7000 samples & true legato. Fender, Hofner, Gibson, Silvertone, Rickenbacker, Musicman & Lakland basses were recorded through large bass rigs.
