If you do rock, pop, or blues, a pure live drum sound is absolutely essential. However, the tight, crisp sound of an unadulterated drum kit can be hard to find these days as so many drum loop collections offer heavily-processed, even unnatural-sounding drum kit sounds. In response, Beta Monkey Music's Natural Grooves offers only pure, clean, natural acoustic grooves and was created with one purpose in mind: to give the artist complete control over the drum sound and drum track construction.
With grooves, groove variations, fills, (intros, breakdowns, endings), and ride patterns, Natural Grooves lays down the foundation for a wide variety of musical styles: rock, pop, alt and modern rock, and blues. And, unlike random loop libraries where drum sounds vary greatly, Natural Grooves features a unified collection of drum kit sounds taken from the same recording session. Having consistent drum sounds throughout the disc insures total compatibility and allows artists many more options to mix and match loops from different styles, feels, or even tempos.
Beta Monkey Music's Natural Grooves also gives users an array of single hit drum and cymbal samples, taken from the exact recording session used to create the loop sets. A full multi-velocity sample kit as well as samples from seven different Zildjian and Sabian cymbals is also included on the disc. Create your own complete drum tracks with the sample kit alone or use it to augment the Natural Grooves loops. Once again, the greatest advantage of Natural Grooves is that it allows the artist complete control over the drums, be it in terms of sounds or in actual drum track construction.
The Natural Grooves CD-ROM is available exclusively from Beta Monkey Music with free same-day worldwide shipping.
