With over 370 groove and fill loops, this collection of odd meter rhythms features one of L.A.’s top session drummers (translation: no quantization required!) knocking out grooves equally at home in prog-rock, fusion, rock, funk, pop, and hybrid styles, all in the odd time signatures of 3/4, 5/4, 7/4, and 7/8. All drums were recorded in a single tracking session for the ultimate in mixing and matching versatility. Want to combine a section of 3/4 with 5/4 or 7/4? You can combine whatever your music needs with over 1 GB of essential grooves that go outside the comforts of common time.
