"Designed to inspire, the Multitrack Drum Loop Series combines the workflow advantages of loops with the mix control offered by full, multitracked, drum recordings. Each genre-based title in the series delivers a massive collection of multitracked drum performances with all recordings made in Ueberschall's own dedicated recording studios. Drum and cymbal combinations were selected to match each music style, while top-end preamps and microphones – including matched pairs where required – were used alongside analog compressors and limiters throughout the recording process. Special attention was paid to drum tuning, while some recordings feature distinctive and characterful high or low tuned shells/drum heads. Rare high-quality cymbals and an arsenal of different sticks and mallets were also used.
All the drum performances within this series were played by the exceptional drummer Matthias 'Maze' Meusel. Maze's credit list spans recording and live duties with chart-topping artists, TV and theatre work, and tours in over 30 countries world-wide. From smooth to uptempo jazz, drum&bass, Latin, house, pop, ballads, lounge, downbeat, easy listening, soul, neo soul, R&B, funk, hiphop or big-band, Maze is a master of every genre. Whether it's vintage grooves or complex modern beats, he likes to experiment with timings, accents, tunings and unusual sticks and mallets. The results are always unique and always inspiring.
The titles within the Multitrack Drum Loop Series offer loops that cannot be found anywhere else. The quality is always high and, thanks to the advanced time-stretch algorithms built directly into Elastik, users can mic and match across all the loops. The drums can also be detuned using Elastik's powerful pitch-shifting functions with ReTune allowing you to tune your drum performances to your song key and scale if required. With the sophisticated sound design options provide by Elastik, these acoustic drums can also be transformed to suit electronic styles, but always retaining the detailed expression provided by a world-class drummer."
