New DrumCore 4 Loop Collection by Bernard Purdie: BP Lialeh

Third in a series of Bernard "Pretty" Purdie GrooveSets for DrumCore 4, "BP Lialeh" is a laid back groove from the 1974 Lialeh film by the same name. More about Lialeh on IMDB, Lialeh Soundtrack on Amazon, and on YouTube. This GrooveSet includes 58 audio loops and fills (180 MB) for $4.99. "BP Sweat" was the first GrooveSet, triple-the-size of most GrooveSets, including 248 audio loops (534 MB) for $14.99. The second was "BP Chase", an uptempo set of funk grooves with that unmistakable cop drama car chase scene vibe. Purdie's audio loops are 48kHz/24-bit stereo files recorded on the Pearl Custom Masters Drum Kit at Jankland Recording in New Jersey. Purdie’s multi-velocity sampled Drum Kit for DC4, and more new samples by Purdie and other drummers are coming soon.
