Beta Monkey Music Releases Drum Werks VII: Acoustic Drum Loops and Samples for Rock Songwriting
As the seventh release in the ever-popular Drum Werks series, Beta Monkey Music’s Drum Werks VII offers over 900 powerful and versatile drum loops for multiple rock styles. Dig into the intense 16th note grooves at 79 BPM or crank it up and blast off to some deliciously frantic rock drumming at 175 BPM, this sample collection is all about nonsense rock feels and phrasings. Drum Werks VII was created to be a “go-to” collection of grooves for rockers everywhere.
“With the release of Beta Monkey Music’s Drum Werks VII, we definitely went back to basics. Over the past year, our customers have consistently asked for a no-nonsense rock disc, with simple and powerful drumming and naturally versatile sounds. On top of that, they wanted it at an affordable price” said Beta Monkey Music Creative Director, Richard Rice. “So, we found an absolutely beautiful Smith custom Maple recording kit, collected an array of Zildjian, Sabian and Paiste cymbals, and surrounded it with all sorts of world-class microphones.
“We then captured the grooves of several accomplished rock drummers, set loose to a variety of different tempos and rock feels,” Rice continued. “We’ve recorded everything over a three-day period and made sure to complement the 900+ loops with a complete matching set of multi-velocity drum samples from the kit used in recording. We think it’s essential to provide all of this to help our users unlock the full potential of their music. They will quickly build all kinds of rock tracks that feel right and sound great with this jam-packed toolbox of no BS grooves.” Rice continues, “We are giving our customers as well as musicians the world over the kind of drum sample CD they want but often don’t find. We are more than happy to oblige.”
Quickly build authentic drum tracks that feel and sound like a live drummer playing a real song. Drum Werks VII offers songwriters much more than the usual sample CD release. Available in acidized WAV, Apple Loops, and REX2 formats, the rhythmic tools of Drum Werks VII will become another indispensable Beta Monkey release in your drum sample library.
