"the whole collection has a strong, appealing and very distinctive sound" - Melody Maker
"...the playing is immaculate...a controlled looseness in the playing...the snare drum sounds like a snare drum should...Definitely the best live drumming CD." - SOS, Feb 93.
"...this compilation represents the coming together of everything that has been learnt about drumming in the last thirty years - taut performances, impeccable recordings, skilful tuning and above all, the value of the groove...I can recommend this CD wholeheartedly...If these funky drums are from hell, the Devil still seems to have all the best music." - MT, Mar 93.

GENERAL - EXS24 CD-ROMs are primarily of course designed for use in Emagic's EXS24 itself. However the format is one of the most compatible computer formats so might prove useful for users of other software.
PRODUCT SPECIFIC - This CD-ROM features all the drum loops sliced up in programs that you can load and either play each slice as it is mapped across the keyboard or use the supplied MIDI Files to re-create the original loop and edit as you wish. This is an extremely powerful system allowing you quick and easy loop editing. Full versions of the loops are also included in banks for quick auditioning too if you prefer to work this way.
