ABOUT THE ROCKING NASHVILLE SESSIONS: When we went to track drum tracks for our Pure Country Series, one location was the only one even mentioned: Nashville. Sure, everyone knows that, right?
But, while in Nashville, we learned a few things that go well beyond country music. We learned the level of musicianship in town is unsurpassed - walk into any club, bar, or honky-tonk and you'll see and hear world-class players on every instrument. We also learned that musicians in Nashville are extremely efficient and productive - when the clock is running, work gets done. We also learned that Nashville is a great rock town as well as other styles you'd never expect from the capital of country music.
We used a timeless classic for a drumkit - the Yamaha Recording Custom drumset -- and dialed in a great, live drum mix in one of the best-sounding (as well as best-looking) drum rooms in town. A well-conditioned API board was brought in to capture the sweetest subtleties of live brush work as well as the thick, punchy country, country-rock, and rock drum tones you've heard on countless country-rock hits.
These Rocking Nashville Sessions remain some of our favorite sounding drum tracks to this day and include the following Beta Monkey drum loop and sample collections:
Drum Werks IX: Pure, unadulterated hard rock drums. Big room sound, no reverb needed or wanted.
Drum Werks XI: More pure power rock but with more rpms! Lots of energy and attitude.
Drum Werks XII: Rock and blues. Or, is it blues and rock? Either way, heavy-duty 12/8 and shuffle drum tracks. This is real blues for real blues players.
Pure Country I: Rocking Nashville Don't let the country scare you if country is not your thing. Think simple, solid, 2's and 4's, more AC/DC than Garth Brooks, that's for sure!
