Sonic Reality has released 10 brand new "DrummerTracks" titles for guitarists, bassists, keyboardists, songwriters and other musicians who want to play along with professional "album quality" drum and percussion backing tracks. Designed for songwriting inspiration, practice, play-along performance and fun, DrummerTracks offer the same high-quality drum sounds that Sonic Reality is known for in a simple easy-format that anyone can use.
10 Brand New DrummerTracks Titles:
LZ Grooves: For drums in the style of Led Zeppelin and John Bonham, LZ Grooves is the way to go. Complete drum tracks are recreated using the same type of vintage microphones and recording equipment as well as a Ludwig "Bonham Signature" kit. It's like having the drums extracted out of the master tapes for you to play along with yourself. An inspiration for songwriting or jamming, LZ Grooves has the character of a classic iconic sound suitable for many styles of music today.
60's Rock Grooves: DrummerTracks in the style of rock bands of the 60's such as The Beatles, The Who, Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. 10 groovy backing tracks that lock to tempo are recorded with the same vintage studio equipment used to make classic records. Pro Wave Edition includes 4 additional Bonus Live Tracks all together making 14 drum tracks.
70's Rock Grooves: 70's Rock Grooves has diverse drum sounds in the styles of Queen, Pink Floyd, The Who, Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. These powerful drum tracks are recorded with the same vintage studio equipment used to make classic records. Pro Wave Edition: 4 additional Bonus Live Tracks are included with additional human feel.
B Grooves: B Grooves are DrummerTracks in the style of The Beatles. Complete drum backing tracks are recreated using the same type of recording equipment and Ludwig Black Oyster Pearl "Downbeat" kit that Ringo used in the 60s. With the addition of percussion it is like having the drums extracted out of master tapes for you to play along with yourself. An inspiration for songwriting or jamming, B Grooves has the character of a classic iconic sound suitable for many styles of music today. Pro Wave Edition: 4 additional Bonus Live Tracks are included with additional "loose" human feel.
