From the mind of groove guru John "Skippy"

old school attitude with totally new grooves, presented in ultra hi-fi
sonic fidelity to light your tracks on fire. Great for R n' B, dance,

another remixed loop library, BBB gives you tons of new grooves (66BPM
- 145BPM) each with multiple mix variations, including full mix, simple
mix, no kick, no snare, high-end only, old record mix and more, so you
can actually write a complete song with breaks and turnarounds. And with
Groove Control your options for changing tempo, feel and mix are
The sounds are fresh, fat and in-your-face. The grooves will hit you where
Skippy has programmed sounds for Korg since 1988 and has worked on tons
of high profile sessions, on both coasts, showing off his groove skills.
This is his first Sample CD and we know it won't be his last. You gotta
check it out!
Big Bad Beats - The Concept Detailed
Skippy's Big Bad Beats was designed to be a unique product when compared
to other drum loop libraries. Let's take a moment to explain the thought
process behind this collection of grooves so that you can understand how
to get the most out of the library.
At the root level, BBB is conceived as a collection of 34 high-fidelity
stereo dance, hip hop and pop grooves. Making any of these loops "lo-fi"
is as easy as running them through distortion, EQ or effects boxes, if
you like. These starter grooves are then broken down and remixed into
alternative versions that you can use at different places in your song
for rhythmic variety. Instead of only one loop that never changes in a
four-minute song, with Big Bad Beats, you can arrange the different mixes
at different times, or use the full mixes for the intro and the small
mixes for the verses. You can also use the no-snare version just before
going back into the full mix version for the chorus outs, and so on.
Instead of making 1,700 loops that have nothing in common with each other,
we've created a library that has variations within the same basic groove.
This way, you determine what mix to use, when and where, instead of being
limited to only one loop for the entire song.
After carefully selecting the 300+ loops, every last one of them was put
through a process developed by ILIO and Spectrasonics, utilizing proprietary
software, called Groove Control. This process literally explodes
the library into millions of possible groove mixes, tempos and attitudes.
So you have the option of using the recorded grooves in the traditional
way, or with the Groove Control method, or both! As we say, only your
imagination limits you.
