The tyrants over at The Loop Loft have been leaving threatening messages on my voicemail, promising I’ll soon awake to a horse head in my bed if I don’t promote their latest release, Cinematic Drums. So, rather than ruin my 500 count Egyptian cotton sheets, I decided to give in and provide the following shout out:
“Produced specifically with the big screen in mind, Cinematic Drums contains loops and samples that will quickly conjure up specific moods and imagery in your tracks. From thunderous walls of pounding toms, to angst-ridden, heart pulsing beats, this collection is a must-have for anyone who composes for the moving picture. We also meticulously sampled every individual drum, cymbal and yes, pot and pan, allowing you to quickly program your own grooves using the exact same sounds from the live loop sessions.
But don’t let the name of this collection fool you, Cinematic Drums can also add an extra sonic dimension to your pop, rock, dance and jazz tracks. Slide in some Civil War era field drums under a traditional drum set groove or layer timpani-esque toms on top of your 808 loops, and you’ll quickly have the extra depth in your productions that standard loop sets simply can’t provide.”
