Beta Monkey has announced the release of Odd Time Meltdown IV, a sample pack featuring odd time drum loops to inspire the rock, prog-rock, and fusion drum tracks you’ve always wanted.
The newest member of the Odd Time Meltdown series, Odd Time Meltdown IV brings a modern punchy mix to a decidedly up-tempo and energetic collection of drum loops in 3/4, 5/4, 7/4, and 7/8 time signatures with twelve (12) complete Groove Packs® sessions to inspire anyone writing prog-rock, fusion, rock, or experimental hybrid musical styles.
Nearly 1 GB of live, acoustic multi-bar loops in 3/4, 5/4, 7/4 and 7/8 time with tempos ranging from 100 bpm to 150 bpm, Odd Time Meltdown IV is an inspirational collection to go beyond 4/4 and build powerful, natural, and musical drum tracks quickly and easily.
But, just because they’re called “odd meters” doesn’t mean that they can’t groove. Many of the most memorable tunes ever written have been based in so-called “odd” times: ‘Dave Brubeck’s ‘Take Five’ (5/4), ‘Mission Impossible’ (5/4), Pink Floyd’s ‘Money’ (7/4), Led Zeppelin’s ‘The Ocean’ (7/8) Soundgarden’s ‘Spoonman’ (7/4), Seal’s ‘Kiss from a Rose’ (verses in 5/4), Queens of the Stone Age’s ‘Hangin’ Tree’ (5/4) among too many to list. Now, it’s your turn to add to this time-honored tradition and take your music into the exciting challenges that only odd meters can present.
All drum loops and samples are recorded at 24Bit 44.1Khz. Available for download in 16-bit and 24-bit ACIDized WAV, and APPLE LOOPS. An extensive matching single hit collection of drum samples is included with purchase.
Odd Time Meltdown IV is available for purchase for $39.99 USD.
