They say that these top of the line groove libraries offer the first ever 24 bit multi-track Rex2, Apple Loops and Acidized Wave drum loops that offer flexibility with the feel and tempo combined with full control of the individual direct, overhead and room mic channels. All of this is done while still retaining the relative time relationships from the difference in positions of the mics and is even consistent between the three formats for the ultimate flexibility and compatibility for use with any DAW or sampler.
In addition to multi-track grooves each title comes with sampled hits of the drum kits used in the session with the same multi-channel mixing control in samplers like Kontakt 2. Users can start with various grooves from the title and supplement them to fit their song by playing MIDI parts with the same drum kit for unlimited creativity while centered on the authentic style of the product.
Here are Sonic Realityâ€™s descriptions of the two collections:
Rhythm & Soul Drum Sessions concentrates on classic Soul grooves from the 60â€™s & 70â€™s from labels like Motown, Stax and Atlantic with artists such as Marvin Gaye, Tempations, James Brown, Supremes and more. Drum sessions were emulated even down to capturing the additional percussion, foot stomps, claps and snaps. Classic miking techniques were used to emulate that â€œMotown soundâ€� with additional modern miking options as well for maximum production flexibility. Itâ€™s almost like having the multi-track masters in your hands.
British Rock Drum Sessions concentrates on classic rock grooves from British bands in the 60â€™s & 70â€™s like The Beatles and Led Zeppelin. It features an authentic Ludwig Black Pearl â€œRingo Kitâ€� as well two other vintage drum kits including one that matches the specs of the kit John Bonham used. Special miking techniques were used to emulate the classic sounds of these drummers in the studio while also offering a choice of modern miking options as well for maximum production flexibility. Grooves are played with the authentic style and feel of these classic British rock bands offering rare access to emulations of the drum tracks from multi-track masters.
