This audio CD and CD-ROM set contains over 1000 of the highest quality stereo drum loops, variations, fills and hits from top session drummers recorded at world class recording studios in Seattle and LA.

All loops have been edited to exact tempos (+/- 0.001 bpm) for perfect synchronization with your sequencer, and ACID properties are pre-defined for the CD-ROM WAV files.

The Performance Loops series represents a unique approach to sample libraries, taking several loops, variations, fills and hits from the tracks of real song performances. By using many different loops, variations, and fills from a performance, you can construct a complete track that sounds like it was played by a real drummer instead of sounding like the same loop over and over (unless that's the sound you're going for). Or, if you are searching for that perfect loop, you have a much wider range of variations to choose from in each style with the Performance Loops series.
Real drum tracks from real songs chopped up, keeping as much usable material as possible from each song. On the CD-ROM, the files are all arranged by performances, with each folder contains all the different loops, variations, fills, and hits, from a performance. Some of the performances have been chopped up into over 60 different loops, variations, fills, and hits. Most of them have over 30 files, and the smallest amount of any of the Performances on Volume 2 still has 20 files in it. There are over 1000 total files on this product, representing 21 different song performances, plus 3 extra folders (extra individual drum hits, misc. extra loops, and some processed loops).

Performances and how many files are in each folder: ("loops" means loops and variations from various sections of the song that usually don't contain fills, "fills" are loopable as well, but have snare or tom fills... some fills may be a single beat or two, while others can be full loops with fills on the end of them; endings are easily created by using a fill followed by a crash and kick hit if that particular performance doesn't have a performed ending).
