Drum Werks XIV: The Brazilian Kitchen http://www.betamonkeymusic.com/V14.html offers a wide variety of Brazilian drum styles in tempos ranging from 50-150 BPM. With nine (9) complete Groove Sets™, Drum Werks XIV will be your go-to disc for the classic Bossa and Samba grooves of Rio de Janeiro, to the fresh sounds of Xote, Baiao, Maracatu and more from the Northeast. The disc includes groove variations, fills, one shot endings and a complete multi-velocity sample kit.
The drum sounds were mixed with the goal of giving you the utmost versatility, aimed at the sounds of the instruments of the bateria. Live, open drums with little processing, the toms and kick resonate like surdos, the snare with body, but enough attack to emulate a repique, tamborim or caixa.
As with all our Drum Werks releases, Drum Werks XIV carries the feel and swing you just can't get on a drum machine. And in this case, you'd be hard pressed to get it at all outside of Brazil.
Drum Werks XIV: The Brazilian Kitchen is now available in 16 or 24-bit "acidized" WAV and APPLE LOOPS/AIFF formats.
