Classic Soul Drum Loops V1 is the first of a series of 3 loop packs that emulate the classic drum sounds and grooves of the Motown era. With huge room ambience and vintage Ludwig drum kits, these soul drum loops offer a truly authentic soul sound that cannot be found in any other drum loop library.
We also included some tambourine loops to compliment some of these timeless rhythms. The Ludwig drum kits were carefully tuned to capture the essence of the drum tones used in the 60′s and 70′s. We used our largest live room to recreate that huge, live sound that was so iconic in the glory days of Soul.

Here’s what you get with ‘Classic Soul Drum Loops V1′:

- 150 Rex2 files for Reason
This loop pack contains 8 collections of soul drum loops that were influenced by legendary soul artists like ‘The Supremes’, ‘Smokey Robinson’ and ‘The Marvelettes’. We worked for days to capture that vintage soul drum sound by using highly collectible drums from the 1960′s and researching the drum tuning styles of the Motown age.
Once we had the drums sounding just right it was time to experiment with the room mics to harness that big room sound. At first we thought our live room ‘G’ would give us the best sound but after experimenting with our largest live room is was obvious that live room ‘G’ just wasn’t big enough for that massive soul drum sound. We moved all the drums and mics to live room ‘L’ and that’s what you can hear in all of the loops and the preview above.
We think we nailed it but take a listen and hear it for yourself.
With ‘Classic Soul Drum Loops V1′ you get some stellar drumming performance that offer you lots of soul style drum fills and plenty of groove variations for easy drum track construction in your songs.
