Drums On Demand has announced Upbeat & Aggressive ($79.95), a 2-CD set featuring 1,700 royalty free loops, Loop Layers, and matching single hits in 25 Song Sets. Users can simply drag and drop file, choosing from an average of 45 modular verse, chorus, fill, bridge, break, intro, and ending loops to quickly build a drum track.
The collection includes nearly 250 Loop Layers. Drums On Demand describes Loop Layers as isolated and separated kick, snare, rim, hi-hat, and ride loops, based on the major grooves in a Song Set. Loop Layers allow you to create and mix your own multichannel groove loops. Half-time, double-time, and odd-meter Song Sets are included.
Each Song Set includes an average of 11 Loop Layers for a total 237. The matching sets of single hits include three Velocity levels of bass drum, snare, closed hi-hat, high tom, middle tom, and low tom, as well as single-Velocity open hi-hat and rim/side stick sounds. There is an additional 40 MB of crashes, rides, and other cymbals that work within all Song Sets.
The collection is available in 16- or 24-bit Acidized WAV and Apple GarageBand formats. The tempo range is from 73 to 188 bpm.
