This library contains over 150 loops including 4/4 loops recorded at 90 bpm, 6/8 loops at 60 bpm and 6/8 loops converted to a 3 against 2 rhythm with ReCycle! Also included is a Kontakt Buffalo Drum Hit .nki for creating your own grooves and fills to compliment the loops. The Buffalo Drum Hit instrument features 590 MB of beautifully mutisampled round robin articulations in a mirror style mapping (download the manual at the bottom of this page for illustrated information on this).
The Buffalo Drum loops can be played back at simultaneously their original tempo (1x), 2x or 3x their original tempo via Kontakt front panel selection buttons (see above). But that is just the beginning - each tempo or loop layer may be tuned, panned, volume controlled and applied effects (EQ, delay, filters) independent of each other! This makes it possible to create anything from very simple grooves to polyrhythmic tribal frenzy. The loop samples were converted to REX files using Propellerheads ReCycle! giving the user maximum flexibility in tempo control. Please see the Video Page for a 3 part demo on the Buffalo Drum Kontakt library.
