DrummerTracks Big Band Vol 1 features 12 drum-only tracks in the style of Big Band Jazz for musicians to jam to on guitar, bass, keys or other instruments. They are real album quality song-length drum and percussion recorded in a top studio and can be used to spark song ideas, jamming, practicing and performing music.
DrummerTracks albums come from Sonic Reality, a leader in sound development who has created music software and sample library products with top drummers such as Neil Peart (Rush), Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), Terry Bozzio, Billy Cobham, Rod Morgenstein and many more. DrummerTracks are "play along" longer length grooves that work in any media player or DAW. Whether you simply play it from your computer's iTunes® or other media player, from your iPod® or other mp3 player and pick up your instrument to jam along or you import the tracks into your recording software on any platform from mobile to Mac to PC to play along and record yourself, it doesn't get any easier than Drummertracks! You just hit play and start playing your instrument. It's a great resource for sparking up song ideas, for practicing your chops and jamming for fun. It can also be used in live performances for those that have backing tracks.
While Sonic Reality is mostly known for advanced drum kit and groove sound collections for virtual instrument software plug-ins such as FXpansion's BFD, IK Multimedia's SampleTank, Propellerheads' Reason, NI's Kontakt as well as popular loop formats such as Rex, Apple Loops and Acid Waves, Drummertracks now brings these top quality drums to the hands of every musician no matter what level of technical expertise.
Note that most DrummerTracks are simply "in the style of" certain genres and songs. They are not always a complete replica of a song's drum track arrangement but you may find that some are and therefore can be useful for playing a cover of the song it references. However, the main goal of DrummerTracks is to be an easy "ready, set, go!" version of Sonic Reality's popular drum loop products. In this version you get live playing complete with its natural drift and "live imperfections" and unexpected surprises just like playing with a real live drummer! The feel is REAL and that is part of its charm. If you want to compose with more deliberate drum arrangements suiting your song you can upgrade yourself to Sonic Reality's many drum loop libraries such as the R.A.W. Loop series and more. You can even play many of these drum kits from a midi keyboard or electronic drum kit by purchasing the many Sonic Reality multi-sampled drum kits that are available. But, if you simply want a highly affordable source of drum tracks to play along with for the many advantages and uses it has to offer then enjoy the many DrummerTracks album titles we now have available for download world-wide.
