Bill Bruford Stereo 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!
This product is a collection of stereo grooves made to be played from Sonic Reality's Infinite Player. The grooves were played by Bill Bruford on his famous half-electric/half-acoustic setup made famous by his inventive playing with progressive rock innovators King Crimson. This collection reflects Bruford's renowned physical intricacy and use of odd time signatures, as well as the unique combination of cymbals, log drums, acoustic drums, and electric pads that is particular to Bill Bruford's style.
Bill Bruford is a drummer known for innovative playing with classic rock and jazz groups such as Yes, King Crimson, UK, Genesis, Patrick Moraz, Al Di Meola, Chick Corea, ABWH and many others. Specializing in odd time signatures and a distinct high pitched snare, big roto toms and pioneering the use of percussion electronics, Bill’s sound has always been recognizable as his own.
Bill Bruford collaborated with Julian Colbek and Keyfax to create a Bill Bruford 3 Pack sample library featuring grooves and drum kits played by Bill in the studio. It was briefly distributed by Qup Arts and then became rare and hard to find. Sonic Reality contacted Julian and Bill to see if we could update it to the latest loop and sampler formats and include it as part of the Studio ProFiles Stereo Master series.
Quote from Dave Kerzner of Sonic Reality about Bill Bruford: "There were several rare drum libraries recorded with famous drummers in the late 90s. I actually wanted to have them in modern loop formats like Rex2 myself so I could use them in my music. I figured that if I did then surely a lot of other people would too! So, I was on a mission to find Bill Bruford and ask him if he’d like to join our list of top drummers in the Studio ProFile series. We’re very happy that he did and now his classic drum grooves are available for the Infinite Player!"
