Product Information

Hip Hop/R&B Meets Pop Fusion With One of Today's Top Drummers!

John Blackwell Multitrack Grooves Volume 1 is part of the Drum Masters series where you can pick out a la carte kits and grooves that work with Sonic Reality’s Infinite Player plugin and build one of the most powerful virtual drum collections ever!

About John Blackwell Multitrack Grooves Vol. 1:

These drum grooves were played by R&B/Fusion/Pop/Hip Hop drummer John Blackwell on a Tama® Star Classic® drum kit at Dungeon Studios in Miami. Multiple mic options and a medium to large sized live room make these versatile grooves to produce a wide variety of drum sounds. The Tama Star Classic is the main kit that John uses with artists such as Prince, Timbaland and Justin Timberlake. These grooves were played with sticks, and brushes and features a Yamaha® Sub Kick for getting deep bass tones ideal for Hip Hop, R&B and Pop.

ProFile on John Blackwell:

John Blackwell is one of today’s hottest Pop/R&B/Hip Hop drummers both live and in the studio. He’s played with Prince, Diddy, Patti Labelle, Lauryn Hill, Cameo and was recently featured on Justin Timberlake’s “Future Sex Love Show”. John is known for flashy light speed drum riffs and tight funky drumming that suits many different styles of music. His sound and style of playing crosses the lines between Pop and Fusion, between old school R&B and modern progressive Hip Hop.

Sonic Notes:

Quote from Dave Kerzner of Sonic Reality about John Blackwell: "I first met John when he was sitting in at a gig with Sheldon Reynolds and Larry Dunn formerly of Earth, Wind & Fire. I was amazed at what a tight, funky and entertaining drummer John was. A true showman with style. His tutorial DVDs are some of the most popular amongst today's drummers and he is one of the most in demand performers for live shows and studio work. We re proud to have John as part of our Studio ProFiles Drum Masters series. He brings with him a unique sound, style and feel to every session."

• Diverse Range of Kits and Grooves:
Unique custom and vintage drum kit sounds and grooves from legendary drummers.
• Performance Maps for Playing Grooves Along Side the Kits:
Drum Masters grooves come with "Performance" maps which are 1-2 octaves of drums that are mapped in an area above the kit where both the kit and the grooves can be played at the same time and automatically routed to the same individual outputs for processing.
• Signature Styles and Sounds: Authentic techniques and recording equipment used in the session to recreate drum sounds from iconic Classic Rock albums to Jazz, Soul, Blues, Hip Hop, World, Pop and other styles.
• Full Multi-Channel Control! Hi quality discrete mic channel mixing so you can blend directs, overheads, rooms and more to get a diverse range of sounds from dry to ambient.
Unprocessed Natural Acoustic Sound: Recorded naturally with no additional processing for maximum flexibility to produce, process and engineer within your DAW.
• Loops Can Automatically Sync to Your Host's Tempo! Drum Masters multitrack Grooves are set to automatically sync to your host's tempo. This can be turned on or off in the plug-in for the ultimate convenience and flexibility in your work flow.
• Authentic Played Audio Grooves Add Realism! By combining the audio grooves with your MIDI kit performances you get more nuances, feel and interaction of the kit which helps to simulate a REAL multitrack drum session.
• Ideal Material to Use with Effect Plug-ins: Process each mic channel separately or together through your favorite studio effects plug-ins and channel strip EQ in your DAW.
• Endlessly Expandable Collection! With the Infinite Player you can expand and add more Sonic Reality drum kits, grooves and other instrument sounds to your collection.
