Capitalizing on the success of GarageBand, which is part of the new iLife ’04 suite of iApps that Apple introduced at Macworld Expo San Francisco in January, Drums on Demand recently issued Volume 2 of their drum loop collections in Apple Loop format. The loops are also compatible with Apple’s Soundtrack application.
Drums on Demand Volume 2 features 800 royalty-free loops organized into 35 song sets. The tracks feature a variety of pop, rock, and country styles, with a mixture of bridges, choruses, verses, and fills in each song set. Each loop also offers intros, endings, and builds, with sound quality that’s reminiscent of a drummer recorded live in a studio. Multiple time signatures give you a range of appropriate tracks to use with any given song.
You can preview 20-second MP3 samples from each of the song sets on the Drums on Demand Web site. Pricing is US$49.95, or $84.90 when ordered with Volume 1, which is also available in Apple Loop format.
