Frontline Producer proudly present Alt Rock Drums, a sleek selection of alternative rock rhythms played by esteemed collaborator Jon Atkinson! Everything included is 100% royalty free and ready for use in your music out of the box.
Known as a drums specialist in all genres, chances are you’ve already heard Jon playing on recent movies such as Johnny English Strikes Again and Paddington 2, TV series like Inside Number 9, Hold The Sunset, Doctor Who and Roobarb And Custard Too, plus album tracks for Kim Wilde, Rick Astley and Nik Kershaw amongst others.
This collection focusses on the sound of Indie, or Alt-Rock drums. Inspired by the sounds of Parquet Courts, Pearl Jam, R.E.M, TheeohSees, Spit Shake Sisters and Ty Segall, these have been recorded very dry and punchy with a compact and in your face sound. No reverb, but heavy compression bringing up the room space. Crunchy vibes using overdriven preamps, guitar pedals and hardware distortions. These samples were all recorded 24bit at 44.1kHz using Antelope Orion converters into Protools Ultimate. Tempos included are 85-158bpm, ensuring you’ve got the rhythm section you need no matter what energy level you’re working at!
