Test Grooves from Metal MIDI Drum Loops Groove Pack 1
Working on more grooves to add to the upcoming Metal MIDI Drum Loops Groove Pack 1 – adding more syncopated and broken patterns (as well as anything else that comes to mind that is heavy and slamming).
Here are a few new ones from today’s sessions (for an explanation of the file naming convention, see below):
120 HH DTGroove 06
120 HH DTGroove 07
100 CC 32nd DBGroove 01
A few more added since the original post.
We are working to include more 4-bar patterns – sometimes 4 bars of a similar figure and sometimes a 4-bar pattern with a particular phrasing. What’s nice about the longer patterns especially is the fact you could always grab a bar or two that works perfectly for what you are writing. More flexibility is good – we hope you agree.
100 CC 32nd DBGroove 04
120 CC TripGroove 04
Interesting Observation – The preceding four-bar MIDI drum loop has 135 MIDI notes. Now, we suppose you could program that – anything’s possible. The question: do you really want to?!
Slam Track File Naming Explanation:
In the above tracks, you’ll notice each file has a particular naming convention. Let’s break it down:
120 HH DTGroove 06 = 120 bpm, played on hihats, Double Time Groove (16notes in double kicks is assumed as it is very common in metal patterns)
120 HH DTGroove 07 = 120 bpm, played on hihats, Double Time Groove
100 CC 32nd DBGroove 01 = 100 bpm, played on China cymbal, 32nd note double pattern
120 CC TripGroove 04 = 120 bpm, played on China cymbal, groove is triplet-based
