Jazz Drum Loops or Sample Libraries

Does anyone have any tips about premium jazz drum loops / sample libraries?

I'm preferably after high quality drum loops in a variety of tempos from easy swing brush loops to Bebop.

Looking for real jazz, not "acid jazz" beats or anything like that.

Why not buy EZ Drummer and the jazz kit?

Should do the job

Hey Peachboy,

I mainly use this:

Buy Jazz Grooves for Stylus RMX. (Downloadable sounds)

The dedicated Danny Gotleib pack is also great for crossover jazz inspired loops that are like nothing else !

Thanks. Both are great suggestions.

I've been toying with the idea of getting either EZ Drummer or RMX for a while now. The demos on both sound great.

Addictive drums with the Jazz Sticks and Jazz Brushes AdPaks is amazing imo

Just go for RMX ! ! - There are just so many great libraries available for it and not too expensive. It's ability to mangle the loops, change the time signature of the loops, add or remove swing, slice and sync is just amazing ... I have about 60GIGs of RMX library some made myself using re-cycle ( importing my old CD Audio sample disks etc )

Sonic Reality have a great line up of RMX ready products featuring some of ht e most famous drummers. Products like 'Pro Drum Works' are superb too.

Peter Erskine did one that maps to general MIDI. Forgot where / for whom - you could G**gle it.

AcousticSamples have some really really high end sounding drums for jazz.

I got both libraries (hits and brushes) and they also include great midi files to get you started.

It's like having an organic loop! heh

DrumTasteBrush : acousticsamples, Realistic Sample Libraries

PS they also have some neat acostic bass
