Why Classic Backbeats II?
We looked around and just heard too many sample libraries with that ultra-tight and compressed modern sound. So, we set out to do something different. We wanted that classic, vintage drum sound. The kind you get when you have four mics and have to get the positioning just right so you can capture the crisp highs as well as the deep lows. The kind of sound you get when you have the right room, not too big but with enough space to give the drums depth and air.
And, that’s only half of getting that classic vintage drum sound.
Most important, of course, is getting the right drummer in the room and behind the kit. A drummer who understands how to play tastefully and dynamically. Since you don’t have the spot mics to rely on, the drummer is the key to getting that balance that’s going to work in the mix. Simply put, we got all of these elements together and just let the drummer play for a few hours. The result is a fantastic songwriting resource for anyone looking to get that vintage vibe in their drum tracks.
If you need real drums laid down with authority and feel, then Classic Backbeats™ II will deliver true vintage vibe and inspiration.
Over 285 drum loops, covering ballads, straight-ahead rock and pop grooves, mid-tempo feels, shuffles, surf grooves, tom grooves, double-times and more. If your music needs the smooth vintage tones, feel and vibe not found in virtual drummers, Classic Backbeats™ II has much to offer.
