Say hello to your new Ska drum tracks. We loaded up on inspiration from well known ska legends that took us all the way from ‘Prince Buster’ and ‘The Skatalites’ to ‘Madness’ and ‘The Beat’. You’ll hear the attention to detail in these drumming performances and the sound quality as soon as you hear the demo.
‘Ska Drum Loops’ offers a superb selection of expertly performed live ska drum loops with loads of variations and drum fills. You’ll get side stick grooves, up tempo rhythms and lots of snare fills.Take a listen to the demo above to hear your latest drum tracks and download some free demo loops below.
We fed the kick and snare mic’s through the Focusrite Liquid Channel mic pre-amp and chose our sound proofed mixing room as a live room in order to achieve a dry ‘close-mic ‘d’ sound that emulates classic ska recordings of the 1970′s. We added zero room ambience to the mix so that the tight, dry sound gives you all the space you need to drop a thick plate reverb on those snare fills for that cool ska vibe.
