Beta Monkey’s Natural Grooves Features:
Full Range of Rock, Pop, Blues-Based Acoustic Grooves: Pure, natural grooves for writers looking for that true acoustic sound. The drums are untreated, just a true focus on capturing how the drums actually sound in the room. A good mix of feels and tempos, Natural Grooves is good for any artist looking for the true sound of drums.
Cohesive Groove Sets: All loops are taken from the SAME recording session (all grooves, fills, etc. are sonically-matched).
Fully-Sampled Drum and Cymbal Samples: We took the kit used in the recording sessions and sampled it completely. The sample kit section includes multi-velocity samples of all the drums and cymbals recorded. and give users added flexibility.
Hi-Hat and Ride Cymbal Patterns: We have included for the groove sets stand-alone HH and RC patterns, essentially time-keeping with and without snare backbeats. These are especially useful if you only need a basic hi-hat or ride pattern behind the music or, if you want to create new and realistic beats. These patterns further make Natural Grooves an extremely versatile disc.
The Finishing Touches/One Shots: We also included cymbal swells, ending ritards, and more. All the “little” things most loop libraries don’t include, but are vital to realistic drum tracks.
