“In much of modern music, the drums are not about intricate grooves or elaborate drum solo-like fills – they’re rather about serving as a steady backbone, delivering sturdy variations of the same beat throughout the song. This is exactly what the Drum Beats MIDI pack provides: a plethora of basic but inspirational four-bar grooves for a near-endless variety of styles. Regardless of whether you’re writing a modern four-on-the-floor-based pop anthem, an old-school hip-hop track or a laid-back jazz-inspired song, this collection of MIDI will make sure you’ll never skip a beat when you’re in the creative zone. Jump seamlessly between styles, mix, match, change and rearrange. Let nothing but your own creative imagination set the limits. Start writing!”
