A unique release, Groove Shadows consists of ambient, atmospheric loops that are perfect to add to your drumloops. If you’ve ever compose a track and thought something was missing, well, Groove Shadows is the answer. The perfect collection of grooves to add to your loops, covering all styles, with BPMs ranging from magesy download 40-180. One of the biggest sticking points is basic tenet that the loops have the ability to make your drum programming appear somehow more professional, a claim not helped by the rather dubious demos supplied. It’s a question of personal taste as much as anything here — I know that many musicians take a lot of time programming wacky little stereo noises into their rhythmic arrangements in order to sustain the listener’s interest, but there are others who consider this mere gimmickry. If you’re of the latter persuasion, then this CD is simply not for you.
