Beta Monkey delivers another round of odd time drum loops to inspire the rock, prog-rock, and fusion drum tracks you’ve always wanted.
The newest member of the Odd Time Meltdown series, Odd Time Meltdown IV brings a modern punchy mix to a decidedly uptempo and energetic collection of drum loops in 3/4, 5/4, 7/4, and 7/8 time signatures to inspire new rock and fusion tracks in twelve (12) complete Groove Packs® sessions to inspire anyone writing prog-rock, fusion, rock, or experimental hybrid musical styles.
But, just because they’re called “odd meters” doesn’t mean that they can’t groove. Many of the most memorable tunes ever written have been based in so-called “odd” times: ‘Dave Brubeck’s ‘Take Five’ (5/4), ‘Mission Impossible’ (5/4), Pink Floyd’s ‘Money’ (7/4), Led Zeppelin’s ‘The Ocean’ (7/8) Soundgarden’s ‘Spoonman’ (7/4), Seal’s ‘Kiss from a Rose’ (verses in 5/4), Queens of the Stone Age’s ‘Hangin’ Tree’ (5/4) among too many to list. Now, it’s your turn to add to this time-honored tradition and take your music into the exciting challenges that only odd meters can present.
All drum loops and samples are recorded at 24Bit 44.1Khz. Available for download in 16-bit and 24-bit ACIDized WAV, and APPLE LOOPS. An extensive matching single hit collection of drum samples is included with purchase.
