Misc : Classic Backbeats Plus: 2 CD set of Acoustic Drum Loops - macmusicBeta Monkey Music releases Classic Backbeats Plus, a two-CD collection of over 1,200 original drum loops with a decidedly classic and retro sound for today's rock and pop music. With grooves, groove variations, fills, one shots, and single hit samples, this collection of acoustic grooves is designed for any production looking to add the pure and unadulterated tones of an acoustic drum kit that sounds right out of your favorite small to medium-sized club.

The loops are suitable for all variants of the rock and pop genres, but are particularly for use in recording situations where only live, vibrant, acoustic drums will do. The drum loops are organized by BPM and style, ranging from 55 BPM half-time ballad grooves to up-tempo rock and pop grooves at 150+ BPM. All drums are sonically-matched (being from the same recording session) and are free of excessive processing.

Virtual Instrument : SampleTank updated: again !! - macmusicWas SampleTank released too early ? Is IK Multimedia without beta-testers ?
It's a good question : SampleTank 2 was available on november 3d, the first update came on november 18th and at last the very new update "2.0.2.R2 " is available now, november 28th !!

This new version has no new functionnality but fixes bugs : improved SampleCell convertion, fixed Reverb fx 96KHz bug, fixed multiple instances on multi processor systems and fixed crash on some child preset load.
