100% Pure Traditional Jazz Drum Loops!
It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing! Jazz Essentials I offers an extensive collection of drum loops for traditional jazz styles. The royalty-free collection features more than 400 recorded phrases, with loops in authentic jazz drum styes from a cool and relaxed 100 bpm to a blistering bop at 325 bpm. This drum sample collection is all about traditional feels and phrasings, a truly focused set of grooves for discriminating jazz purists everywhere.
Quickly build authentic drum tracks that feel and sound like a live drummer playing a real song – that’s how this library was recorded. We captured the human swing as well as the warmth of vintage drums and cymbals to deliver a veritable toolbox of acoustic jazz grooves.
But, Jazz Essentials includes much more than the standard sample libraries. We’ve included a matching set of multi-velocity drum samples from the kit used in recording the loops. We’ve included a matching set of cymbal samples to allow greater flexibility in drum track construction. And, on top of this, we’ve included the source tracks.
So, whether you want to construct your next jazz songwriting project with the loops and samples or you just want to match licks comping with the full source tracks, the rhythmic possibilities of Jazz Essentials are limitless. It will quickly become an indispensable songwriting tool for any jazz musician.
