Drum Werks XXVI: Rock Ballads

Part of our L.A. Three Sessions that include the exclusively 6/8 drums of Drum Werks XXIV and Drum Werks XXV, we developed an exhaustive and definitive collection of rock ballad drum loops, all focusing on the undeniable expressive drum grooves that sit behind the most recognizable ballads of the rock era.

No funky drum patterns, no syncopated over-playing, and no "beat detective" in sight. Just solid, expressive live acoustic drums in a decidedly slow range of tempos (40 bpm to 75 bpm).

With a top studio drummer behind the kit, you're getting the experience and sensibility of a pro who knows what works best for songwriters. Live, expressive, pocket playing that will inspire your music immediately.

This rock ballads drum loop collection is the real deal - slow it down but make it rock.

Enjoy the grooves!

Drum Werks XVI: Rock Ballads

Sometimes you have to slow things down and let the groove breathe. And, when that time comes, you need to reach for two things: your guitar and Drum Werks XXVI: Rock Ballads.

Let your feelings flow and get inside the rhythmic space of these rock ballad drum loops, perfect for any ballad or slow rock songwriting. But, don't get us wrong, these aren't lifeless, stiff, uninspiring "beats" you usually find from imitators - these are 100% live acoustic drums played by one of L.A.'s top on-call session players. Drum Werks XXVI will take the tempo down, but give your songwriting a potent toolbox of drum tracks to write music that evokes the emotional side of ballad songwriting but with powerful and unmistakably live rock drum sound.

Intense rock ballads, spacious acoustic rock, maybe even a little hairband metal ballads (minus the four-second gunshot in a warehouse snare type sound), it's all possible with the rock ballad drum loops offered on Drum Werks XXVI.

With a versatile collection of grooves ranging from 40 bpm to 100 bpm, Drum Werks XXVI: Rock Ballads will lay the foundation of your most sensitive and emotional compositions for today's working songwriters and producers. If you're inspired by The Eagles, Pink Floyd, Kansas, Aerosmith, Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton or any other artist who has lived on the "softer" side of rock, then these loops will serve you and your music well.

And, for even greater songwriting flexibility, we've included a complete matching multi-velocity drum and cymbal sample set of all the drums used to record the drum tracks. Not just a handful of samples, we're talking an extensive and complete set of samples, enough to develop your own drum virtual instrument and your own sequenced parts. This gives the loop collection unlimited flexibility and potential.

Powerful sounds, powerful grooves. Drum Werks XXVI: Rock Ballads will inspire your passion for ballad and soft rock with a versatile collection of live, acoustic drum loops.

Available in 16 and 24 bit ACIDized WAV, APPLE LOOPS and REX2 loop formats.
