Drum Werks XIV: The Brazilian Kitchen offers a wide variety of Brazilian drum loops and styles in tempos ranging from 75-150 BPM.
With eight (8) complete Groove Sets™, Drum Werks XIV will be your go-to disc for the classic Bossa and Samba grooves of Rio de Janeiro, to the fresh sounds of Xote, Baiao, Maracatu and more from the Northeast. The disc includes groove variations, fills, one shot endings and a complete multi-velocity sample kit.
The drum sounds were mixed with the goal of giving you the utmost versatility, aimed at the sounds of the instruments of the bateria. Live, open drums with little processing, the toms and kick resonate like surdos, the snare with body, but enough attack to emulate a repique, tamborim or caixa.
As with all our Drum Werks releases, Drum Werks XIV carries the feel and swing you just can’t get on a drum machine. And in this case, without Beta Monkey you’d be hard pressed to get it at all outside of Brazil.
Powerful natural sounds, infectious Latin grooves. Drum Werks XIV is pure rhythmic inspiration. Make it swing!
