More info on the Producer

"Killer kick drum work...impossibly difficult snare work...the ensuing result is devastating...a peach...If you don't love Keith's drumming, you haven't listened to it. He is the man machine, easily coping with beats only drum machines should be capable of...a consummate timekeeper. 5 Stars." - Sound On Sound.
Many Sugar Hill Classics such as Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel's 'The Message', plus James Brown, REM, Mick Jagger, Annie Lennox, Seal, 808 State, Malcolm McClaren, Bomb The Bass, ABC, Charles & Eddie, Malcolm X, Living Color, The Cure, NIN. He also created the unique sound of Tackhead with Doug Wimbush and Adrian Sherwood.
GENERAL - Akai Z/S5000 CD-ROMs work with all Akai WAV-based rather than S1000-based samplers. Such as the Z4, Z5, and S5000.
PRODUCT SPECIFIC - This CD-ROM features all the drum and performance 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.
