Steinberg Media Technologies AG announces the RADS (Rhythmic Architectural Drum Loops) MultiTrack Drum Loops audio CD collection. The three CDs from the Pocket Fuel series offer music producers extraordinary rhythm material in a handy format.
The acoustic drum sounds were recorded in a live room environment using very live drums. Rex files give full control over the tempo (+- 15 BPM at least), quantization, groove and mix - without time stretching and any loss in sound quality. Rex-files can be imported into Nuendo and the Cubase VST host applications.
- MultiTrack Drum Loops
The grooves on this CD were performed by Sammy Merendino - one of the industries busiest session drummers. The sound Library contains audio files in three different file formats (WAV, AIF, REX) recorded at three different tempos (90 BPM, 100 BPM, 110 BPM). The sound files themselves are organized in a hierarchical directory system arranged by SONG. Each SONG folder contains sub folders organizing the loops into categories of VERSE, CHORUS, INTROS, and FILLS. Each sub folder provides the multi track loops comprised of a primary Kick drum channel, a snare drum channel, a stereo pair of overhead channels a room channel and a channel called MIX containing the previous five loops "comped" into a single mono file - perfect for auditioning.
- RADS Acoustic HipHop Drum Loops
Inspired by some of today's hottest HipHop and R&B recordings the grooves on RADS Acoustic HipHop Drum Loops were recorded using the finest audio equipment available. Considering that most of today's traditional HipHop rhythms are machine and sequencer based, an acoustic HipHop library featuring a "human" drummer will definitely add a fresh feel to the genre. The layout of the CD is quite simple - each directory contains a group of loops that work together both sonically and musically - feel free to experiment.
- RADS Techno Rhythms and Loops
Techno Rhythms and Loops contains hundreds of great sounding electronic and acoustic drum grooves, fills, intros and outs all in REX, AIF and WAV file formats. Simply audition the files and import them into your favorite sample editing application or sampler. These machine grooves were programmed on a variety of different drum-machines, samplers and keyboards. Some of these loops have been mixed with acoustic drums to create interesting textures.
The Pocket Fuel package retail for USD 59,- each.
