Propellerhead has expanded their A-List Drummer Series with the new A-List Power Drummer and A-List Classic Drummer instruments for Reason. They say that, available immediately, these new A-List Drummer Rack Extensions allow musicians to quickly and easily create realistic, inspiring drum tracks at the touch of a button right within Reason.
Propellerhead tells us that each new A-List Drummer instrument combines the living, breathing performance of a top-notch session drummer with the sonic versatility and competence of a professional engineer in a world-class recording studio. They say that you can play, combine and tweak a virtually endless array of drum patterns in real time to create unique, realistic and inspiring performances.
Mats Karlöf, Propellerhead Product Marketing Manager, told us, "With the newly expanded A-List Drummer Series, musicians can choose from a wider range of musical styles, including pop, rock, punk, funk, soul and more. A-List Power Drummer offers over 50 hard-hitting punk and rock styles that bring speed, energy and aggression to your tracks. A-List Classic Drummer gives you more than 50 classic drum styles recorded dry with vintage mics, preamps and fully dampened heads, for punch and clarity that sits perfectly in the mix."
Here's more details in Propellerhead's own words...
The A-List Drummer series goes far beyond static drum loops by providing actual rhythm tracks that will support your musical ideas just like a real drummer would. With smart scripting driving the loop selection, A-List Drummer instruments play with your music, knowing where the downbeat is and adding crash cymbals after fills, making drum tracks very easy to create.
With A-List Drummer series, creating a drum track is as simple as selecting a drum kit and style, then using your MIDI keyboard to trigger verses, chorus patterns, intros, fills and stops. The A-List Drummer will play along, always in perfect sync with your song. Just like in the real world, the entire kit is professionally miked and mixed, with powerful options so you can get the exact sound you want.
With complete control and flexibility to adjust tempo, style, feel and phrasing, you can quickly create the perfect performance for your song -- or spend time experimenting with variations. The drum kits themselves are also available as individual instruments, and can be triggered by other Rack Extensions such as drum sequencers or arpeggiators.
