Straight Ahead Samples introduces Straight Ahead! Jazz Drums for Kontakt

Straight Ahead! Jazz Drums

Straight Ahead Samples has announced the release of Straight Ahead! Jazz Drums, its flagship sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt, featuring the first sampling of authentic and playable classic jazz loops and samples.

Channeling the essence, sound, and the swing of great jazz drummers like Max Roach, Elvin Jones, Phillie Joe Jones, Billy Higgins, Roy Haynes, Jimmy Cobb and other legends, SA!JD features the amazingly swingin’ skills of young jazz phenom Billy Williams Jr. Straight Ahead! Jazz Drums gives you the tool you’ve been waiting for to create genuinely swingin’ jazz tracks.

One of the main features of SA!JD is that we conceived of a way to separately sample ride/hi-hat loops and authentic snare comping patterns to create truly playable variations in swing grooves. We’ve also included fills and other specialty loops, like kick-feathering, for example, to allow the composer to create truly genuine jazz drums tracks to use in his/her compositions. As well as a fully sampled set of drum hits, that includes such elements as rolls, triplets, snares on/off, side sticks, etc.
