About the Author:

There's no question that producer/engineer Ken Scott holds a unique place in music history. As one of only five engineers on The Beatles records, Ken s work has left an indelible mark on hundreds of millions of fans with his skilled contributions to Magical Mystery Tour and The White Album. As producer of four David Bowie albums (including the seminal Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars) and two of the biggest-selling Supertramp albums (Crime of the Century and Crisis, What Crisis), the sound Ken crafted has influenced several generations of music makers. Those credits alone would be enough to set his name in the annals of music, but that's only a brief slice of what Ken has done. He has literally worked with a who's-who of classic rock acts, including Elton John, Pink Floyd, Procul Harum, Jeff Beck, Duran Duran, Harry Nilsson, the Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, America, Devo, Kansas, The Tubes and Missing Persons, among many others. Ken has also played a big part in the world of jazz, being the first to integrate a more powerful rock sound into the genre via albums by Mahavishnu Orchestra, Billy Cobham, Dixie Dregs, Jeff Beck and Stanley Clarke. Not only an innovator in the studio, Ken has proved to be one in the music library world as well, having recently developed EpiK DrumS, a new library based on his past work with such world-class drummers as Terry Bozzio (Missing Persons), Billy Cobham (Mahavishnu Orchestra), Rod Morgenstein (Dixie Dregs), Bob Siebenberg (Supertramp), and Woody Woodmansey (David Bowie's Spiders From Mars). The product is unique not only because it's based around these drummers most popular albums with Ken, but also because it features odd time signatures and superior MIDI feels making it an excellent tool for drummers, engineers, and producers alike. As a counterpart to this Alfred Music Publishing has released EpiK DrumS EDU, an educational tool which contains instructional videos on how Ken records and mixes drums as well as multitrack drum grooves from each of the 5 drummers enabling the user to practice and learn, hands on, about mixing live drums. Over the years Ken has received multiple Grammy nominations as well as dozens of gold and platinum records from around the world for the acts he's engineered and produced, but no honor stands as large as his recent election to the Sound Fellowship of the United Kingdom's Association of Professional Recording Services (APRS), a lifetime achievement award recognizing his contribution to music. Considering his body of work and its subsequent influence on today's music, it's easy to see why so many see Ken Scott as one of the best of the best.

Review:

Ken became a part of the team latterly, which over the years recorded the band to such a high standard - a standard that remains a benchmark today. I was lucky to have Ken to assist me during that period of extraordinary creativity. --George Martin, producer (The Beatles)

I credit Ken for probably one of the most thrilling recording experiences I have ever had. And all of us would agree that was probably one of the high spots of our recording achievements. --Roger Hodgson, Supertramp

I learned to stay calm under pressure from Ken. He was always unflappable, which is a trait that he passed on to me. --Alan Parsons, The Alan Parsons Project
