"When we were doing the jazz recordings, I brought in a 60s Gretsch drum kit, which is what they used to play that stuff on. Nothing sounds like it, and it worked great ... After recording, Randle spends about three days mixing in his studio, followed by six weeks of editing and fine tuning by Sorensen. Then, Randle and Murphy map out the sound of each Drummer ... making it all just work when you turn the knob ... I think [RiffWorks] is great for people who just want to play guitar and not delve into how it's all done." Todd Sorenson, Session Drummer, Composer and Producer, Drums on Demand
Drummerheads InstantDrummer Sessions offer a wide range of new sounds, styles, and very usable features. Most Drummerheads InstantDrummer sessions are available in both 16-bit and 24-bit formats for greater flexibility.
"I wanted to give RiffWorks users a wide collection of InstantDrummer sessions to pick from, not just my idea of the perfect parts. So I've recruited musicians and producers who make music that I really enjoy to create sessions of their own. Every session we make has a "Produced by" tagline at the bottom, so that if you like sessions from a particular producer, you can search for more." Hayden Bursk, Founder, Drummerheads
Drummerheads recorded drum loops by Jason McGerr, the acclaimed drummer for indie rock band Death Cab for Cutie, and released them exclusively for RiffWorks users. Listen to Jason McGerr InstantDrummer sessions samples.
For over 10 years the team at Sonic Reality has been sampling, programming and developing sound libraries and software for sound companies, keyboard manufacturers and successful recording & performing artists. We create virtual musical instruments and production tools that can be used with today's digital samplers and Mac/PC software samplers, sequencers and digital recorders. They are now transforming their great-sounding content into InstantDrummer sessions for RiffWorks users.
Dave Kerzner from Sonic Reality remarked, "Sonoma and Sonic Reality share a similar philosophy when it comes to music-making - getting the technical stuff out of the way in order to get to the creative part faster. RiffWorks is brilliant and we're thrilled to be able to offer our drums and grooves in this platform so that guitar players can jam with such a diverse range of sounds we've captured all over the world. It's a chance to open up a range of Sonic Reality samples to guitarists that may be new to what we do and that's exciting."
