Cakewalk has announced Expansion Packs for Session Drummer 2, which will be available in Q4 2006. Session Drummer 2, found exclusively in SONAR 6 Producer Edition, came about as a result of a lengthy collaboration between Cakewalk and Smart Loops. This relationship continues with the announcement that Cakewalk has commissioned Smart Loops to create content for a series of Session Drummer 2 Expansion Packs, which will be sold through Cakewalk.
Session Drummer 2 was designed from the ground up to provide SONAR users with the fastest and most fun way to create realistic and vital drum tracks. In looking for high-quality content to include in Session Drummer 2, Cakewalk turned to Smart Loops, an industry leader in rhythm content and a leading provider of professional drum loops.
Smart Loops recorded over 200 live MIDI drum grooves exclusively for Session Drummer 2, and provided four complete drum kit multi-sample sets. All drum grooves and multi-samples were performed and recorded by pro session drummer and Smart Loops founder Frank Basile. The drum grooves were recorded on the Roland V-Drums, using the industry-standard V-Pro Series TD-20K drum kit to ensure maximum accuracy and tracking.
Session Drummer 2's sound quality is made possible through a combination of the included high-quality multi-samples and MIDI patterns from Smart Loops, along with the unrivaled non-aliased rendering provided by the Expression Engine, found exclusively in the Cakewalk Instruments Line. The Expansion Packs will open up Session Drummer to even more grooves that are perfect for a wide range of music, including rock, pop, jazz, country, reggae, and blues.
Consumers will be able to purchase Session Drummer 2 Expansion Packs through Cakewalk in Q4 2006. Pricing is not yet available.
