Drumdrops releases Folk Rock Drops Volume 1 - Sixteen 60s/70s drum tracks available as Multi-tracks, Stems & Loops

Drumdrops has released Folk Rock Drops Volume 1 which features 16 drum tracks played by Martyn Barker and recorded and mixed by Phill Brown.

Folk Rock Drops volume 1 contains 16 drum tracks taking influence from a range of folk rock tracks from the 60s & 70s. The tracks were played by Folk Rock drummer Martyn Barker and recorded by legendary UK Producer / Engineer Phill Brown. The album was recorded at the historic Miloco Livingston Studios in London using a 1966 Vintage Ludwig Hollywood Kit.

These tracks take reference from artists such as John Martyn, Traffic, Neil Young, Nick Drake, Fairport Convention and Bob Dylan. Ranging in tempo from 74 BPM to 162 BPM there is a huge range of tracks and grooves to choose from. There are a few 3/4 options, plenty of shuffles, and a couple of tracks were played with brushes and hot-rods.

For the sound Phill Brown (John Martyn, Bob Marley, Rolling Stones, Talk Talk, Led Zeppelin) used his years of accumulated knowledge
and went back to the time of the 60s when he was based at Olympic Studios.

Phill's idea was to create a 1960s drum sound with a modern twist. Instead of positioning the microphones close to the kit he wanted to capture a natural drum sound and record the 'dead' room. He used only five microphones on the kit: one on the kick, the snare, two kit microphones placed around the kit which provide a surprisingly good stereo picture, and a mono overhead.

All of the mics were recorded through API mic pre's and recorded straight to 2" tape on a Studer A80 with a 16 track headblock before being transferred into Pro Tools. The kit we used for this was a beautiful vintage 1966 Ludwig Hollywood Kit.

All sixteen tracks can be purchased as individual tracks, as multi-tracks (unmixed), stems (mixed) or drum loop packs. The multi-tracks come with a tempo map and OMF file to export into other DAW. We also provide templates for Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Reason, Reaper, Studio One and Ableton Live and the audio comes as 24-bit WAVs. The stems and mix packs which have all the drum parts and percussion
as separate stems come as 24-bit WAVs and a tempo map. The loop packs contain about 6 x 4 bar loops from each drum track. The loops are broken down into each component EG full mix with and without EMT plate, with and without percussion, and they come formatted as 24-bit WAVs, Apple Loops and Rex 2 files. Each track can be purchased track-by-track or if you buy the album (in any format) you get 20% off the price.

Price: From £3.00 / loop pack to £65.00 for the multi-track album.

For every new customer that signs up they will receive 20% off their first purchase with a voucher code given out on sign up, however they can also receive one of the tracks from Folk Rock Drops as a multi-track, stems pack and loops pack.
