Drumdrops has released Tony Allen's Afro Drops Afrobeat sample packs. There are 23 Afrobeat drum tracks exclusively available from Drumdrops as multi-tracks, stems and loops that can be used by composers, arrangers, performers and producers to create their next project.
Recorded and mixed by engineer Steve Sedgwick at west London facility Studio13, Tony Allen's Afro Drops incorporates influences from Tony's drumming in Fela Kuti's band Africa 70. Nearly all of the drum tracks come with percussion and plate reverbs.
Each multi-track runs for about 5 minutes presenting all the mic channels as live free running multi-tracks but also include on the beat multi-track looped sections for quick and easy song construction. Each multi-track weighs in at 2-3 gig. Stem packs include mixed stems of separate drum parts - free running with a tempo map but also as mixed song construction loops. Loop packs include folders of groove loops and fill loops all chopped up as Apple Loops, Rex2 Files and WAVs.
Price: From £3.00 per loop pack up to £92.00 for all 23 multi-tracks.
