TOONTRACK Go PROG With The Release Of The SEVENTIES PROG GROOVES MIDI PACK

Toontrack have gotten weird in all the right ways and just released their newest installment to their line of drum groove MIDI packs: Seventies Prog Grooves! This one’s for all you prog heads out there who enjoy a wacky time signature or twelve, with a lot of room for experimentation. See the full list of included features below!

This MIDI pack features:

  • Drum grooves and fills inspired by the vivid 1970s prog rock scene
  • Featuring unusual time signatures but performed to keep a basic and easy-to-understand feel throughout
  • 4/4, 5/4, 5/8, 6/8, 7/4, 7/8, 9/8, 11/8 in straight and/or swing
  • Bands used for inspiration and reference: Kansas, Rush, Pink Floyd, Yes, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Genesis and Styx (to name a few)

About this new pack, Toontrack had this to say:

“Literally covering the entire gamut from 4/4 all the way up to 11/8, this MIDI pack offers an enormously broad foundation of grooves for anyone looking to spice up their songwriting with some basic, tight and classy drumming. May be that it’s delivered in a somewhat challenging format time signature-wise, but change is often what brings out the best of new ideas. Up for it? Start writing!”

You can learn more about this MIDI pack over on the Toontrack website, and can also see their insane line of MIDI drum groove packs here.
