Need classic sounding Reggae drum loops? Your search is over. This sample pack features the grooves you’ll need to produce authentic reggae drum tracks that only a live drummer can provide. We used two snare drums simultaneously for many of these drum loops so that you get that signature reggae reverb on the snare fill accents and a dry punchy snare for the main rhythms.
To get that ‘reverbed’ snare tone we tuned the snare drum to a high note and then removed the snares on the underside of the drum altogether. This gives it that almost ‘timbale’ like sound that is so characteristic of classic reggae. We used a vintage Lexicon reverb on those snare fills and left the rest of the drum kit completely dry.
These live acoustic beats and fills were fed through all manner of vintage and modern analogue gear, including Drawmer tube compressors and Focusrite EQ’s. We added some subtle tape saturation for a nice, evenly compressed tone. With side stick, rim shots and highly tuned snares, these classic reggae rhythms should add realism and vitality to your productions.
Here’s what you get with ‘Jammin Reggae Drum Loops V1′:
- 129 Loops in (Acidized) WAV file format.
- 129 Apple Loops for Garageband and Logic
- 129 Rex2 files for Reason
This sample pack features two drum sets that were recorded in different live rooms to give you a variation in acoustics and drum sound. Both were recorded using the same high quality microphones and outboard channel processors.
As always, we don’t force you to choose file formats because at Silicon Beats you’ll get all three major formats. That means you get to download WAV files, Apple Loops and Rex2 files for whichever music making software you like best.
