Route Seventy Sticks
There's a simple reason why 70s rock legends like Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Steely Dan and The Eagles continually pop up on your FM dial - it's the sound of these records. There's a pre-digital warmth in the lavish productions of this golden age in rock that stand the test of time.
Now you can get your kicks with the latest addition to the Drumdrops family - 32 drum tracks featuring that classic sound of 70s America. Route Seventy Sticks serves up laidback rock, sun-soaked pop, driving blues grooves and down-home country across a range of tempos from easy riding through to open freeway.
Played with feeling and precision by London session drummer Tim Weller this sumptuous recording even throws in some 12/8 blues shuffles and a bit of brushwork for that bonafide country rock sound. The bedrock of those bygone days is here in 24-bit multi-tracked glory plus stems and DAW-friendly loops which should certainly put the bang in your burrito. With drums this good you're halfway down that road to writing a classic already.
All 32 tracks on Route Seventy Sticks can be purchased on a track by track basis either as Drum Multl-tracks, Drum Stems or Drum Loops. Alternatively you can purchase all the tracks on Route Seventy Sticks as a complete album in each format.
The Multi-tracks come with Pro Tools 9, Logic 9, Ableton Live 8, Reaper 4, Cubase 6 & Studio One 2.5 Session files as well as tempo maps, OMF files for exporting into any other DAW and of course the audio files. The Stem packs include the audio files as 24 bit 44.1 WAV files and a tempo map. The loops are formatted as Apple Loops, Rex 2 and WAVs for importing into any sampler.
"Drumdrops’ ‘album’ concept lets you buy full multitracks, stems and/or loops, by song or by ‘album’. This one has 32 US-style rock/pop drum tracks, all exhibiting a warm, analogue 70s sound. It’s tastefully performed by UK sessioneer Tim Weller, with genres including blues, country, folk-rock, shuffle and ‘laid-back’ (think Fleetwood Mac). We recommend the multitracks for full mix control. 8/10" Computer Music December 2012
