Beta Monkey releases Rock Hard Funk
Beta Monkey Music‘s Rock Hard Funk, a two-CD collection of funk and funk-rock drum loops and samples with over a thousand acoustic grooves to inspire any serious “groove intensive” project.
Mix the improvisational mentality of jazz, the groove inventiveness of funk and the powerful drum sounds of rock – a beautiful mix of groove experimentalism all captured and available in Rock Hard Funk.
Rock Hard Funk (2-CD Set) Features:
- Versatile Blend of rock and rock/funk styles. Think Soul Coughing, G. Love and Special Sauce, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction/Porno for Pyros and countless other “hard to categorize” bands. Rhythmic invention is the key here.
- Fully-Sampled Drum and Cymbal Samples: The sample kit section includes multi-velocity samples of all the drums and cymbals recorded. While most loop discs offer only a handful of single hits, we have given you the entire kit. Build grooves from scratch or use them to augment any of the 1000+ loops.
- Superior Rhythmic Realism: Looking for the metronomic monotony found on too many sample CD’s? Let Rock Hard Funk show you what a live drummer can do – rolls, stick drags, dynamics not possible on anything but a real kit with a real player.
- Cohesive Groove Sets: All loops are taken from the SAME recording session (all grooves, fills, etc. are sonically-matched). Every loop found on BOTH CD’s will work seamlessly with any other loop! The ultimate in consistency for larger-scale projects.
- High-End Production: Recorded in a World-Class Recording Studio, home to numerous platinum and GRAMMY® Award Winning albums.
