Beta Monkey Music has released Classic Backbeats Plus, a two-CD collection of over 1,200 original drum loops with a decidedly classic and retro sound for today's rock and pop music. With grooves, groove variations, fills, one shots, and single hit samples, this collection of acoustic grooves is designed for any production looking to add the pure and unadulterated tones of an acoustic drum kit that sounds right out of your favorite small to medium-sized club.
The loops are suitable for all variants of the rock and pop genres, but are particularly for use in recording situations where only live, acoustic drums will do. The drum loops are organized by BPM and style, ranging from 55 BPM half-time ballad grooves to up-tempo rock and pop grooves at 150+ BPM. All drums are sonically-matched (being from the same recording session) and are free of excessive processing.
The Classic Backbeats Plus Two-CD Set (shipped free world-wide either as a set or individually) contains 1,252 "acidized" grooves, fills, and one shots in PCM WAV format, ready for use in ACID, Cubase, Sonar, ProTools and all samplers and software compatible with WAV format files. Also included are more than 150 single drum and cymbal hit samples from the recording sessions for further customization of your groove tracks. All loops, whether one, two, or four-bar grooves, are set to the correct BPM, have correctly set loop points to the whole of the loop, and are organized in groove folders indicated by style and tempo. The Classic Backbeats Plus Two-CD Set weighs in at a combined 1.3 GB.
Sold direct by Beta Monkey Music, an individual CD costs $16.99 while the two-CD set goes for $24.99.
