July 29, 2010, 6 years ago
BraveWords.com has received the following press release:
When talking about the most precise drummers out there, lots of names come up, such as Neil PEART (RUSH), Mike Portnoy (DREAM THEATER), Stewart Copeland (THE POLICE). Another name that must be thrown into the conversation is QUEENSRŸCHE’s Scott Rockenfield.
As the man behind the kit for Queensrÿche, Scott Rockenfield has defined himself as a drummer par excellence, providing both rhythmic support and percussive propulsion with his signature style. A man who can make his hi-hat work as compelling as his tom fills, Rockenfield further expanded the art of metal drumming with inventive playing and showing that subtlety was just as important as aggression. Listen to the seminal rock opera Operation: Mindcrime for proof positive…
In 1981 at the age of 17 he founded the now Multi-Platinum rock band Queensrÿche. And now after almost 30 years together they have toured around the world dozens of times in over 45 countries and have released over 14 records and with sales over 30 million copies worldwide.
Loopmasters have teamed up with Scott to provide multi-genre producers with a fantastic, fresh and original collection of some of the most truly authentic Rock Drum samples currently available in this royalty free sample collection.
If you are looking for the real sound of Rock Drums to use in your productions then look no further, as Scott has played out some of his favorite rhythms and beats on his preferred rock kits to present here a grooving and heavy hitting collection, now known as Scott Rockenfield’s Rock Drums!
Within this collection you can expect to find in excess of 650MB of content recorded at 24Bit between 130 – 183Bpm. Scott recorded 5 full tracks which have been split into 60 stereo loops (including intro, verse, chorus, bridge, fills etc), and then you also get 165 Loops which are the multitrack loops from these sessions which allow you to mix the beats how you want to hear them, with separated kick, snare, overhead and room mic samples for all the main loop sections. In addition we asked Scott to ‘Rock Out’ for a while and we have edited 60 Bonus drum Loops from this session which feature some truly Rock u mentus drumming!
In addition to this awesome collection of samples producers will also find 76 single Drum samples ready for programming your own beats, and these are also incorporated into 6 Ready to play kits mapped for soft samplers including Reason NNXt, Halion, EXS, SFZ and Kontakt.
