Now available as a download, Acoustic Swing & Shuffle Grooves covers a variety of styles and tempos from 70’s style Glam Rock to NuSkool R&B grooves. If you ever wanted laid back grooves in the style of Bernard Purdie (Steely Dan) or the type of patterns that Barry White would love, you’ve come to the right place.
Parts were played live by Shane Meehan (Beverly Knight, Norman Cook, US3), on a classic 1970’s Gretsch kit and a Ludwig Black Beauty snare drum. Recording took place at Helioscentric Studios on the vintage Helios desk previously used by Roxy Music and Bob Marley and made famous by the Paul Weller album of the same name. For maximum authenticity and dynamics, the MIDI versions of each loop were recorded on a Roland V-Drum kit.
Acoustic Swing and Shuffle Grooves offers unrivalled flexibility because all the parts are offered as AIFF, WAV and MIDI.
This disc offers you the choice of FOUR individual formats:
- Over 220 MIDI loops
- Over 220 WAV and AIFF audio loops
- Over 100 individual WAV and AIFF hits, these being grouped into ten separate kits
Users can either load WAV audio loops for instant groove, or for the ultimate in flexibility, load the MIDI files and assign these to the WAV and AIFF kits.
