If you think you can program jazz drum tracks with MIDI, think again. One listen to any of the Jazz Essential libraries and you will hear the difference. You can get the subtle swish of brushes on the snare, the punchy accent of the kick, the human pulse of the jazz ride pattern. And, it's recorded live so it never sounds the same. Just deliciously unpredictable and perfect.
Authentic jazz drums are notoriously difficult to capture. Recording involves a wide range of dynamic levels, syncopation that often go beyond the bar, complicated snare and kick comping, delicate brush sweeps, kick drum feathering, and more. It's a lot of information for the microphone to pick up. Not to mention, of course, recording the swing only a live musician can express! Jazz beats are essentially impossible to program.
