Monosole Music presents the Loops Pack from Drum Library Volume 4 'Afro Beast' A collection of 12 Afrobeat inspired grooves and African percussion instruments, which pays homage to classic 70's Afrobeat rhythms.
Recorded in a large studio, the sound of Afro Beast utilises this space with the use of room mics, creating an airy sound thats not overly dry. The authentic 'tubby' sounding drums were recorded with a stereo ribbon overhead, and a kick and snare mic. On there own the drums are relatively dry, but combined with the stereo ribbon room mics gives the user the ability to create space and air to the drum sound. The percussion instruments were captured using a ribbon mic, and were performed a few meters from the mic, which captures more of the room sound.
