Authentic top quality professional grooves by Sonic Reality

The R.A.W. series contains special stereo mixes of the high-end multitrack style sessions of the prestigious Studio ProFile™ series featuring top name studio drummers playing many styles of music. Many authentic recording techniques were used in the best studios to give you sounds that sit well in the mix and give you the feeling of having the master tracks for classic rock albums, vintage 60’s Motown and Soul records and other sought after sounds that are otherwise difficult to obtain legally. For example: how many people want to sample those classic records but can’t? Now they can have a license to use a recreation of that sound simply by buying R.A.W.! With the 60’s Motown, you even have the foot stomps, snaps, claps and percussion as if you had the actual masters in your hands!
