Drum Werks XXVIII: High-Octane Rock

Another installment of our "L.A. Three" Sessions, we've produced a powerful resource of rock drum loops focusing on the high-energy tempos between 125-180 bpm.

No busy patterns, no syncopated over-playing, no "beat detective" - it's all about solid, live acoustic rock drums. The kinds of beats that have spawned countless rock hits.

With one of L.A.'s top studio drummers behind the kit, you're getting the grooves of a multi-platinum drummer who knows what works for rock. Live, rock-steady, pocket playing will inspire your music like few loop collections can.

If you're still young enough to Rock n' Roll all Nite, then it's time to take the rock drum loops on Drum Werks XXVIII: High-Octane Rock for a ride!

Enjoy the grooves!

Rock grooves that will power your drum tracks!

Drum Werks XXVIII unleashes pure power and energy to your rock drum tracks with an extensive and versatile library of rock drum grooves. Take beats inspired by Bonham, some Bun E Carlos style power pop, and a healthy dose of Dave Grohl alt-rock attitude and combine them in a cohesive collection of songwriting tools that will inspire your rock songwriting to new heights. Drum Werks XXVIII is all about high-octane rock drum loops that deliver the intensity and energy your drum tracks need.

If you're a fan of the drumming of John Bonham, Simon Phillips, Alex Van Halen, or Dave Grohl, Drum Werks XXVIII wil become a formidable source of rhythmic inspiration for your hard rock tracks. This is a powerful package of rock drum loops inspired equally by the classic rock drumming you love and the contemporary rock styles that are keeping rock alive. It's all about big live rock drums on Drum Werks XXVIII. No beat detective. No sequenced "drumbeats." No lo-fi garage recordings. If you want big, sweaty, balls-out rock and roll, then you've got it with this powerhouse collection of live drum loops.

In a focused range of tempos covering 125 bpm through 180 bpm, Drum Werks XXVIII: High-Octane Rock offers powerful live drumming to cover hard rock and classic rock as well as alt, power-pop rock drum styles. Organized in tempo-specific ‘Groove Folders’ you'll get all the rhythms you’ll need to create your next rock song: verse, chorus, bridge, fills, and more. If you can drag and drop audio loops, then you can create professional drum tracks instantly with Drum Werks XXVIII: High-Octane Rock.

And, because of our innovative "Single Session" sample library approach, you get a consistent drum sound across the entire collection of drum performances found on Drum Werks XVII. All drum loops will sit easily and seamlessly into your mixes - ideal if you'll writing for a CD project that requires a consistent drum mix across multiple songs.

What's more is you'll be able to mix Drum Werks XXVIII with any of the drum samples from the "L.A. Three" Series that also includes Drum Werks XXIV, Drum Werks XXV, Drum Werks XXVI, and Drum Werks XXVII.

Tired of one-bar loops that don't sound like a live drum track in your music? Drum Werks XXVIII: High-Octane Rock features longer loops (four and eight bars) to deliver rhythmic realism your music deserves.

For those songwriters who want greater control over their tracks, Drum Werks XXVIII includes an extensive collection of matching cymbal and drum single hit samples. These samples will mix seamlessly with all drum loops on Drum Werks XVIII, allowing users to add accents with crash cymbals, kicks, tom, snares to the loops, an easy way to increase track variety and realism. For users using any of the major virtual instruments (Native Instruments Kontakt or Battery, Maschine, Logic ESX24 and other popular virtual instruments), you can easily create your own custom drum kits and create the exact drum track your music needs. Unlike other commercial releases, our included drum and cymbal samples weigh in at nearly 200 MB.
