Beta Monkey Music Release Retro Rock Grooves: Classic Backbeats Ii

Versatile vintage sound with all the staple grooves of the 50s and 60s, Beta Monkey Music’s Classic Backbeats™ II is an all-new drum loop and sample library for writers looking to expand the depth of their groove collections.

Capturing the rich sonic vibe of a vintage Ludwig Black Oyster 60s drum kit, Classic Backbeats™ II is a complete retro rock songwriter’s toolbox, featuring various feels and styles in eight (8) tempo-based Groove Folders™ and a complete multi-velocity drum and cymbal sample set.

If you need real drums laid down with authority and feel, then Classic Backbeats™ II will deliver true vintage vibe and inspiration.

Beta Monkey’s Classic Backbeats™ II Features:

  • Authentic Vintage Sound and Feel: We went to one L.A.’s premier drum rooms and put a seasoned (i.e., “old”) pro behind the kit, with both the chops and knowledge of the genre to capture authentic drum grooves with unmatched vibe.
  • Versatile Grooves: Over 285 drum loops, covering ballads, straight-ahead rock and pop grooves, mid-tempo feels, shuffles, surf grooves, tom grooves, double-times and more. If your music needs the smooth vintage tones, feel and vibe not found in virtual drummers, Classic Backbeats™ II has much to offer.
  • Cohesive Drum Sounds: Single recording session with consistent vintage tones. All grooves, fills, one shots, and samples are sonically-matched allowing ease in mixing and maximum “drag and drop” versatility.
  • Fully-Sampled Drum and Cymbal Samples: Get more flexibility with a complete matching set of drum and cymbal samples. A fully-sampled vintage 60s Ludwig drumkit, matching Ludwig snare, and a number of time-tested Zildjian cymbals give you further control over your drum tracks.
  • Complete Song Construction Elements: Main grooves, groove variations, fills, intros and endings – all the parts you need for songwriting are included. A complete songwriter package to create your next song quickly and easily.
