Below are audio file (.mp3) samples of both of these.

Audio Formats

Alive Drumming Distribution Format:      All the Alive Drumming audio files below are supplied as 256 Mbps, MP3 audio files hosted by Google Docs.

Various User Formats:           Those from artists are usually supplied as MP3s and usually rehosted by Alive Drumming off our Google Docs service.

We also have some samples presented as YouTube videos.  These videos show the App during playback.  That’s not as engaging as most music videos but it allows a musician’s view of the App while playing along to Song Rhythm Tracks.  If this is your intended use-case for the App it might be of interest. These videos are at the bottom of this page.


Streaming and Downloadable

The bulk of the samples below can either be

  1. Streamed,        to quickly listen to as much as you want before moving on, or else,
  2. Downloaded,   so that you can retain the track and use it in your mix in the same way you can all Alive Drumming’s tracks acquired via the App.

Identifying Arrangements – Based on Song Form or Matching Popular Song

  1. Matching Popular Song title  – This is used on the YouTube videos, and
  2. Song Form Arrangement         – This is used on the audio files

Every arrangement can be used by more than one song, so generally, this distinction is artificial.
