Los Altos, California - November 21, 2017 - Master drummer Dennis Chambers' drum loops are now available for Sonoma Wire Works' DrumCore® 4 AAX/VST3/AU plug-in. One of the world's most sought after drummers, Chambers is known for his technique and speed, and has played with Parliament/Funkadelic, John Scofield, Maceo Parker and many other famous artists.
First in a series of Chambers' GrooveSets for DrumCore, "Rosanna-ish" includes 62 audio loops and fills for $4.99. Chambers' audio loops are 24-bit/48kHz stereo grooves recorded at Secret Sound Studios in Baltimore by renowned engineer John Grant. Dennis played an acrylic Pearl Crystal Beat kit, including his signature Pearl snare. See Chambers' full drum kit configuration.
Born in 1959, Dennis Chambers began drumming at the age of four, and was gigging in Baltimore-area nightclubs by the age of six. In 1978 (at 18 years old) he joined Parliament/Funkadelic, and stayed with them until 1985, when he joined the John Scofield band. He was recruited by Doug Wimbish in 1981 to be the Sugar Hill label house drummer. Since then, he has played with most of the major figures in jazz fusion music. He’s played with Stanley Clarke, Sly Stone, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, Sugar Hill Gang, Santana, Steely Dan, Maceo Parker and many more. Despite a lack of formal training, Chambers has become well known for his technique and speed, especially his fast hands and triplets on the bass drum. Chambers is particularly regarded for his ability to play in the pocket, but can also stretch very far out of the pocket, which is a hallmark of his technique. Chambers exhibits a powerful style that is technically proficient, yet highly musical and groove-oriented. He can play a wide variety of musical genres, but is perhaps most known for his jazz-fusion, funk, and Latin music playing. He plays and endorses Pearl drums, pedals, hardware & racks, Zildjian cymbals, Zildjian drumsticks & general accessories and Evans drumheads.
