Beta Monkey Music have been in touch to tell us that they have released the loudest and fastest member in the Drum Werks Series - Drum Werks X - featuring over 700 punk drum loops. Hereâ€™s what they have to say about it in their own wordsâ€¦
â€œEver get the feeling you're being cheated? Getting drum loops that say they â€˜rockâ€™ or will work in aggressive and fast music but do nothing but fall short? Or, worse, trying to make 120 bpm rock drum loops work at 280 bpm for an all-out aggressive punk track? That's why we created Drum Werks X.
Drum Werks X is a complete songwriting package for aggressive music, featuring over 700 slamming punk drum loops. Everything is fast. Everything is simple. Everything is hard-hitting. No time for complex drumming or subtle ghost strokes - this CD is nothing but hundreds of slamming beats and fast and furious fills. With a wide span of tempos from 100 BPM to well over 280 BPM, Drum Werks X will deliver the no-nonsense â€˜get out of my wayâ€™ drum parts your music needs. And, to top it off, we've included a complete matching multi-velocity sample set for added versatility.
Powerful sounds, powerful grooves. Drum Werks X will inspire the fury and passion of punk, hardcore, and post-punk songwriting styles. Never Mind the Bollocks - it's Drum Werks X.â€�
Beta Monkey's Drum Werks X Features:
- Cohesive Drum Sounds: All drum loops are taken from the SAME recording session (all grooves, fills, one shots, etc., are sonically-matched). Like to change tempos or feels? You can mix any loop with anything else on the disc. The bottom line here is maximum versatility.
