January 2011 MusicTech Magazine Review: Drum Werks XIV: Brazilian Drum Loops

MTM Verdict: “Great value, original-sounding Brazilian drum grooves with plenty of natural swing.”

With BPMs ranging from 75 to 150, there’s a surprising amount of variety in the loops, with swishing shuffles alongside upbeat, rolling snare grooves. The live, open drum sounds have little in the way of processing, with each individual instrument tuned to resonate like a set of traditional Brazilian drums.

Overall, the playing is tight but with plenty of subtle variations, swing and natural-sounding groove to make it feel live…. if you want to build up a natural-sounding arrangement with almost zero repetition, then this is a great collection.
