Sometimes, you just need that straight-forward, no frills, clean and lean drum groove. If you do pop, rock, smooth jazz, or cross-over, a pure live drum sound is absolutely essential. Even in today’s dance and R&B, the tight and crisp sound of an unadulterated drum kit is pure gold. This is why Backbeat may become the most important library in your collection!
