Sonoma Wire Works has released a new DrummerPack for DrumCore: Retro Drums: 60's Volume 1 - Billy Martin Interprets Mitch Mitchell.
Billy Martin is an internationally acclaimed drummer/multi percussionist for Medeski, Martin and Wood. Well known and highly respected for his innovative rhythms, creative approach, and manic improvisational skills over a wide range of styles, Billy continues to push the art of drumming and rhythm to a higher level.
Retro Drums: 60's Volume 1 DrummerPack features 10 Groovesets performed by Billy Martin in the style of legendary Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell. Authentic 1960s drums and cymbals (in Mitch's specifications) and vintage recording gear and techniques were used to recreate the classic Mitch Mitchell sound as accurately as possible. The live audio drum loops cover a wide range of stylistic emulations of Mitch's signature grooves and fills, and are presented in stretchable REX format for ease of tempo selection. Variations, fills, intros, stops, and endings are all included for virtually infinite groovy retro drum track creations in your DAW. Also included are 2 Multi-Velocity layered MIDI kits featuring sounds sampled from the vintage '60s kit, as well as MIDI file versions of the grooves and fills represented in this unique collection. Single hit kit sounds are also readily available for easy addition to your audio loops.
This DrummerPack was produced and recorded by the original Submersible Music team, and is configured with metadata for use with the DrumCore search engine, which will help DrumCore users find content based on feel (straight, shuffle, etc.), time signature, tempo and other criteria. Songwriter-friendly "GrooveSets" group related beats, variations and fills to serve as a construction kit for song creation.
All audio is 48kHz/24-bit and created in a pro studio using state-of-the-art digital (ProTools HD3) and analog (Neumann, Neve, etc.) recording equipment.
DrumCore works with most DAWs, and supports dragging audio and MIDI directly to tracks in applications such as ACID 7, Digital Performer 6, Live 6 and up, Logic Pro 8 and up, Pro Tools 7.4.2 and up, Cubase 4 and up (32 bit), and Sonar 8 (32 bit).
