 - Indie Rock Drums Vol II
Indie Rock Drums Vol IIThe Loop LoftDance, Drums2012-09-07

Following on the success of our first Indie Rock Drums release, Volume 2 delves even deeper into the many subgenres (and sounds) of indie rock. From the post-hardcore aggressiveness of Fugazi, to the slapbacked echos of Built to Spill, to the gritty blues of The Black Keys, this collection of loops and samples will give you those authentic DIY drums you've been searching for. Recorded through classic Universal Audio 610 preamps, each collection of loops comes with a wide selection of verse, chorus, bridge and fill grooves, allowing you to quickly build custom drum arrangements tailored to your own songs. We also individually sampled every drum and cymbal from all of the sessions, giving you the option to program your own beats utilizing our drum sounds. Combine that with feels ranging from Ted Leo-inspired uptempo shuffles to Pedro the Lion-esque 6/8 backbeats, and you have a complete arsenal of authentic indie rock drums at your disposal.

Included is a highly diverse collection of beats covering almost every genre possible including ambient, rock, fusion, dance, funk, jazz and even odd meter.

Odd Meter Grooves Vol 1The Loop LoftDrums2012-01-05

With Odd Meter Grooves Volume 1, we've produced a loop pack entirely focused on beats that go beyond the traditional framework of 4/4. While other loop sites only take these things as far as 7/8 (and charge twice as much!?), we've delved much deeper into the possibilities of space, feel and time. From Zappa-esque grooves in 27/16, to Mahavishnu influenced beats in 15/8, to (not so) straight ahead jazz in 5/4, to Muse- approved backbeats in 9/8, we've covered a wide spectrum of tempos and time signatures, all within one loop pack. Whether you're a film composer looking for a unique rhythmic backdrop, or a bass player seeking the ultimate practice tool, Odd Meter Grooves Vol 1 will provide you with the beats and inspiration to take your music to the next level. Number of Loops: 97 • Tempo Range: 93-220 BPM • High Quality 24 Bit 48kHz Audio

 - Cinematic Drums Vol 2
Cinematic Drums Vol 2The Loop LoftOrchestral, Drums2011-12-16

Volume 2 picks up where our first release left off, taking an even more innovative and sound design-based approach to cinematic drum loops. And "drums" don't even begin to describe the audio contained in this collection. We raided the kitchen and mic'd up sauce pans. We took a van full of bass drums to an airplane hangar. We intimately recorded a rusty hand saw and almost lost a finger. We raided an infant's nursery with a rack full of boutique preamps, capturing the sonic nuances of toys. We pulverized a Coldplay CD with a hammer and several gardening tools. Partly therapeutic, 100% cinematic. This is the ideal collection for anyone looking for something beyond "traditional" drum loops for their compositions. Forget kick and snare based grooves. Cinematic Drums Volume 2 goes far beyond that, creating an incredibly unique vibe and rhythmic undulation with every individual loop. Film scorers, jingle producers, orchestrators, animators and creative songwriters, take note (and a close listen to the preview). This is the loop release you've been waiting for!
