New from Smart Loops is Pro Drum Works Volume One (US $249 MSRP), a 6-CD collection of ACID-format drum loops for use with ACID and compatible music and audio software products.
Several years in the making, Pro Drum Works Volume One is a massive drum loop library that lets musicians and producers quickly create drum tracks for a wide range of rock and pop music. Pro Drum Works is organized into three separate Drum Kits: Acoustic Kit, Thunder Kit, and Trap Kit. The entire collection includes over 3,000 grooves and fills, each performed on all three Kits, for a total over 9,000 loops and samples. Users can copy and paste drum grooves as is, or mix and match loops within each kit to create a virtually unlimited number of possible drum tracks.
Each Drum Kit provides a distinctive sound best suited for particular musical styles:
All drum loops were performed live by Smart Loops founder and Pearl Drums ' artist Frank Basile with the crash cymbals kept separate from grooves and fills so you can add them only where you need them. In addition to loops for pickups, intros, fills, verses, choruses, bridge sections, and endings, there are also individual "one shot" samples at multiple velocities for each drum and cymbal. Loops have been optimized for Acid-style time-stretching between a 75-150 bpm tempo range
