Fresh percussion fodder from the masters 01/11/00Gmedia Technology, manufacturer of the Phat.Boy MIDI controller, has released a new Swing & Shuffle sampler CD.
The Swing & Shuffle Grooves CD - another in the GForce range - offers a choice of WAV and AIFF Audio loops, MIDI loops, WAV and AIFF Individual Hits and Creative Labs SoundFonts all on the same CDROM. Hey!
The drum loops, grooves and fills cover a wealth of styles: Bernard Purdie (Steely Dan), Erykah Badu, Jeff Pocaro, & Eric Benet, even a hint of glam rock. The audio for Swing & Shuffle Grooves was recorded at the famous deep-in-the-country Helioscentric Studios on the vintage mixing desk originally used by Island Records for artists including Bob Marley and Roxy Music, and made famous by the Paul Weller album of the same name. The MIDI loops were recorded using Roland V-Drums.
Swing & Shuffle Grooves is the result of 'hundreds of hours of recording, programming and editing from some of the finest musicians and programmers in the field, including Shane Meehan (Norman Cook/Beverly Knight) and Dave Spiers (Keyfax Software)', says Gmedia.
The software is fully Mac and PC compatible, and is available now from retailers (and directly from the Gmedia website) for £29.95.
