More essential rock drum loops to give your rock songwriting projects what they need: no-nonsense, hard-hitting rock drumming. Nearly 250 rock drum loops geared for heavy rock styles. As part of the L.A. Rock Essentials Series (which also includes Drum Werks XV, XVI, XVII, XVIII, XIX, and XX), Drum Werks XVI provides a versatile arsenal of live rock grooves ready for your next classic or modern rock songwriting project.
Let’s be honest. Real rock music needs real rock drums. Programming your own MIDI drums might work, but can it deliver the sheer human power and nuance of a seasoned L.A. session player? One thing is for sure: Drum Werks XVI can deliver the human feel you want. World-class drum tracks are quick and easy with our comprehensive collection of classic and contemporary rock grooves. Building a powerful rock drum track is as simple as ‘drag and drop’ with Drum Werks XVI.
In this collection, you’ll find our exclusive Groove Folders concept. Groove Folders include song starter drum loops, multiple beat variations, fills, single shots, and single hit samples. Choose from hundreds of rock solid grooves, groove variations, and fills to complete your project with a powerful sound and unparalleled realism. Each Groove Set includes all the vital elements for drag and drop song construction (intro fills, verse, pre-chorus, chorus, bridge loops as well as endings).
And, with our industry trend-setting “Single Session” sample library focus, you get a consistent drum sound across the entire L.A. Rock Essentials Series to make mixing and matching between Groove Sets seamless. With an increased focus on longer loops (four and eight bars) you get the realism your music deserves and avoid the “sounds like a loop” syndrome found in competing products.
Drum Werks XVI picks up where Drum Werks XV left off and again delivers grooves of the heavier and no-nonsense side of rock. It is highly recommended that you add Drum Werks XV and Drum Werks XVII to complete your collection of the L.A. Rock Essentials Sessions.
This powerful collection will deliver the goods to any rock star, whether you cut your teeth on Zeppelin or the Foo Fighters, with an unrelenting attack of powerful acoustic drum loops, live and ready for your listening pleasure.
Get the rock-solid rhythmic foundation your music deserves. Get Drum Werks XVI.
