Sonoma Wire Works Billy Martin: Loops from the Underground

Sonoma Wire Works has released Billy Martin: Loops from the Underground, a new DrumCore DrummerPack from Billy Martin of Medeski, Martin and Wood.

Well known and respected for his innovative rhythms, creative approach, and manic improvisational skills over a wide range of styles, Billy pushes the art of drumming and rhythm to a higher level.

This DrummerPack was produced by Submersible Music, and is configured with metadata for use with DrumCore, which will help users find content based on feel (straight, shuffle, etc.), time signature, tempo and other criteria. Songwriter-friendly “GrooveSets” group related beats, variations and fills to serve as a construction kit for song creation. All audio is 48kHz/24-bit and created in a pro studio using state-of-the-art digital (ProTools HD3) and analog (Neumann, Neve, etc.) recording equipment. DrumCore works with most DAWs, and supports dragging audio and MIDI directly to tracks in applications such as ACID® 7, Digital Performer® 6, Live 6 and up, Logic Pro® 8 and up, Pro Tools® 7.4.2 and up, Cubase® 4 and up (32 bit), and Sonar™ 8 (32 bit).
