Odd Time Meltdown II features
- Dynamic Grooves: From slow hypnotic grooves to powerfully complex up-tempos, Odd Time Meltdown II delivers a versatile collection of contemporary and classic odd time grooves in variants of 3, 5, and 7. All loops are infinitely compatible, allowing projects to make use of multiple meters and tempos. With a seasoned pro behind the kit in one of L.A.’s best drum rooms, the emphasis is on longer loops for greater realism in your next rock or fusion project.
- Cohesive Drum Sounds: All drum loops are taken from the SAME recording session (all grooves, fills, one shots, etc. are sonically-matched). Like to change tempos or time signatures? You can mix any loop with anything else on the disc. The bottom line here is maximum versatility.
- Fully-Sampled Drum and Cymbal Samples: Build even more great grooves with a complete multi-velocity sample collection of all the drums and cymbals recorded on Odd Time Meltdown II. Create realistic grooves, augment the loops, create breaks, stops, and accents – having the full matching sample set gives you total flexibility.

- 230 (173 MB) multi-velocity drum and cymbal samples.
