Record Drum Takes

Question: What is the key to that larger-than-life, big budget studio drum sound? Answer: Professionally recorded multitrack drums, played by a skilled session drummer. Record Drum Takes gives you big league rock and pop drums in a ReFill.

Real drums. Nothing can beat it. Loops or multisampled kits can take you a long way, but if you want your pop or rock track to really come alive, you need a real drummer playing real drums in a real room. And Record Drum Takes gives you exactly that. Each Drum Take ReFill comes with two separate three minute backing tracks of live drumming organized in classic song form; intro, verse, chorus, bridge and breakdown. Record Drum Takes builds a steady foundation for any rock or pop creation.

Paste to taste

Record Drum Takes arrives in Record song format, with logically laid out multitrack arrangements containing traditional song parts followed by a host of fills and variations. Play along to the RDT drum arrangements, or simply paste them into your existing song – your entire drum mix will follow right along, and utilizing Record's auto-stretch function, Drum Takes will instantly adapt to your song's tempo.

Shape it to shake it

The differently styled tracks in the Record Drum Takes ReFills all come as multitrack recordings, allowing you to freely shape your drum sound by adjusting the levels of the independent kick, snare, hihat, room,ambient and other microphones. Once your drum sound is mixed to perfection, just cut across all eight drum tracks to arrange and rearrange.

Keep it simple

Although recorded using state of the art technology in a professional recording facility and played by an experienced drummer with an unmistakable feel for music, we've been careful not to overdo it; the playing in this ReFill is sparse and to the point, making it easy for you to make it yours. Included are multisampled versions of all three kits, for adding that extra snare or crash cymbal right where it is needed.

Using Additional Mixes

Record Drum Takes requires Record 1.5. The multisampled kits makes use of the NN-XT sampler and requires Reason version 5.
