Multitrack Session

  • Product Description

      Indie Rock Drops - Songwriter Series is a collection of 14 live indie, pop and Rock live drum tracks ready to inspire your next chart smash. If you are a writer, musician or producer specializing in these genres then this collection of drum tracks is the perfect tonic to get creative with.

      The album provides rock and indie pop drum tracks ranging from 64-172 BPM which are simply arranged with intro, verse, chorus and middle 8 sections. The drum tracks are designed to help you build your songs easily and quickly.

      Indie Rock Drops was recorded and mixed by producer Mike Pelanconi in two different studios and on two consoles - the legendary Olympic Studio 2 through an EMI TG series console, and at Funky Junk on a vintage Neve. The session drummer was D. Whiteman.

      Each drum track is available in three different formats - live drum multi-tracks, drum stem packs or drum loop packs. The multi-tracks come with a Pro Tools session file, OMF file to import the session into any other DAW software, a tempo map to map the live drums and all the audio is supplied as 24 bit 44.1 WAVs. The Rock Drops Multi-tracks are for the musician that wants total control over the drums. You can control the levels of each microphone and change the tone of each drum. The drum stems supplies a full mix, kit mix, kick drum and snare drum mix as 24 bit WAVs. These are the fully mixed versions of the multi-tracks and are designed for the songwriter who wants to quickly load up a great mix of the drums. Finally each drum track is chopped up into about eight loops and provided as full mix, kit, snare and kick. They are then supplied as Apple Loops, WAVs and Rex 2 Files.

      There is a superb choice of pop, rock and indie drum beats here: from vintage shuffle 60s pop beats to funky New Orleans grooves; and from old school 60s funk to atmospheric funky sound track grooves, with many other styles thrown in too.
