THE CONCEPT BEHIND BAREFOOT BEATS!
I wanted to create a library of really natural and versatile acoustic LIVE-PLAYED drum loops.
To achieve this I did 2 things:
1. took off my shoes.
2. turned off the metronome.
Why did I do this?
Playing drums LIVE, just feeling the beats and rhythms flow, un-encumbered by clicking sync-tracks and
having the freedom of barefeet gave me a wonderful environment to explore and record for you extremely
natural and versatile drumming.
These beats are perfect for: downtempo, breaks, big beats, trip hop, dub, drum and bass, acid jazz, chill-out, alternative rock (or ANY kind of rock), rock-a-billy, motown-sound and so much more!
All loops are 2 measures long. All loops are provided in REX2 and WAV formats
and were recorded at 24-bit, 48khz.
By adjusting the release, decay and overall pitch of the REX loops, you can create a really wide variety of
sound from these beats even without adding additional effects!
These beats were all played 100% LIVE, and were not recorded to any specific tempo "click-tracks".
The REX files are labeled by closest actual tempo.
These drumloops are un-processed, not compressed and 100% DRY. They have a wonderful raw and natural sound.
Run them through your favorite compressor(s) and effects and/or your favorite "drum room" reverbs to create your own unique sound.
I've also included a very large selection of individual one-shots of these drums:
(Including crashes, splashes and rides), with multiple velocity hits of each sound so you can program your own realistic drum grooves from scratch or add your own unique flair to the beats provided!
Also included is a HUGE 83 sounds SFZ format drumkit all ready for you to load into your favorite sampler and start
programming your own unique beats!
Use the WAV files as previews - find some beats you like, import the REX files into your DAW and get going.
You can easily group together many variations. Quantize them to get a more "tight" sound - or leave them as is and enjoy the natural "swing" of a real live drummer just grooving! If you want an even "tighter" sound (with less "room" sound), pull back the decay control on your REX player! You can also "tighten" and vary the sound in very unique ways by shortening the note lengths manually in your piano roll. Or, use the WAV's with your favorite time-stretching tool and experiment!
None of the mics were moved and none of the levels were changed during the entire recording process of these beats.
This makes this library extremly versatile, as the sound and "tonality" of each beat will be the same as all the other beats
so you can really mix and match creatively.
Enjoy! Keep your head noddin' - JUNEBUG!
