The Urban GT from Sonoma Wire Works is an expansion pack for DrumCore/LT, created by Gary "GT" Thompson, a professional drummer and drum programmer, who has worked with artists such as Robbie Robertson, Dave Stewart, Everclear, Ann Wilson and many local Seattle artists.
The DrummerPack contains MIDI beats and individual drum kit sounds. There are no audio loops. Much of the material ranges in tempo from 65 to 105 BPM and styles include hip hop and R n' B.
Note! This expansion pack requires DrumCore 2 or better, or DrumCore LT, and a DVD drive for installation.
- Includes a "Hip Hop Classics" pack which is a collection of vintage and modern hip-hop beats modeled after Billboard's "Hot 100" Hip-Hop/R&B hits of all time
- The Classics 1 GrooveSet is derived from beats in the 65-90 BPM tempo range
- Classics 2 covers 90-95 BPM
- Classics 3 is 95-105 BPM
- Classics 4 starts from tempos 105 BPM and goes up
- The GrooveSets mix both single "golden beats" with groups of beats that can work together as variations on the same groove
- The "Hip-Hop/R&B" pack includes original beats in the hip-hop/R&B vein
- Groups content in the usual DrummerPack tradition where all the beats in a GrooveSet relate to the same core groove for easy song construction
- Many of the Urban GT beats will work better at slower tempos, between 80-100 BPM, as is more the norm for hip-hop
