More Information


This isn't like one of those old "chord dictionaries" in a paper book . . . It's a full-blown MIDI library that's over-flowing with thousands of professional chord progressions in multiple time signatures!

You'd have to purchase hundreds of "chord dictionary" books to even come close to the content in this library, and since they're all in MIDI, you can hear the progression instantly with any MIDI instrument you have. No paper book could ever do that!

This collection is like having a WHOLE LIBRARY of "chord dictionaries" and you can use the chord progressions in your own music royalty-free!

Each progression is carefully crafted to follow correct harmony & voice leading rules and the result is amazing! Every inversion is included and each chord is notated with MIDI marker events so that you know exactly what harmony is voiced at each spot in the sequence! (see images below)

I've experienced instant inspiration and song writing has never been easier. Each MIDI progression is like a creative launch-pad for your melodic ideas and the 'next part' in the song just leaps out at you! Begging you to take it to the next section!

If you perform an instrument these progressions are an invaluable tool for perfecting your improvisation skills. I play guitar and these have instantly made me a better player.

Just randomly select a progression and loop it over one of the PROSONIC MIDI DRUM BEATS! If you get stuck on a chord and can't seem to find the right notes . . . just look at the MIDI marker and you'll know exactly what chord it is!

I've found the progressions incredibly useful for honing my bass and vocal phrasing too. I can put up a progression and score a bass line to it. It's really amazing what happens when you have a simple harmonic structure to work from. This is going to revolutionize our craft and I'm extremely pleased to share it with you.

These progressions can be used in any style and are perfect for a base layer to build your song up from!

There are over 150,000 diatonic and non-diatonic progressions in this library [and they all sound as good as the demos] so be ready to stretch your sonic imagination beyond the limits!

File Info & Folder Layout

1. ROOT:

root midi chord folder

The first folder is the ROOT folder. It contains all of the MIDI Chord Progressions. It is named Midi-Progression-Library and is selected (highlighted blue).


time signature folder

Inside the ROOT folder are the TIME SIGNATURE folders. In the Simple Rhythms & Common Time Signatures Library there is 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 6/8, 9/8, and 12/8 and in the Simple Rhythms & Complex Time Signatures Library there is 5/4, 6/4, 7/4, 5/8, and 7/8. We currently have the 4/4 folder selected.


tonic quality folder

Each TIME SIGNATURE folder contains the TONIC QUALITY folders. In this case Major and Minor. Chord progressions in Major Key are found in the Major folder and progressions in Minor Key are found in the Minor folder. We currently have the Major folder selected.


chord type folder

Inside the TONIC QUALITY folders are the CHORD TYPE folders. We currently have the Triads folder selected.


chord progression start folder

Inside the CHORD TYPE folders are the PROGRESSION START folders. These folders contain chord progressions that start on each scale degree in the key. We currently have the "Start at I" (tonic in major) folder selected.


chord stop count folder

Inside the PROGRESSION START folders are the CHORD STOP COUNT folders. In this case we have "4 Chords" and "8 Chords". In the "4 Chords" folder there are progressions that have four chord "stops" or "pulses" and the same for "8 Chords". (Except there are eight chord stops in each progression.)


midi chords phrase type folder

Inside the CHORD STOP COUNT folders are the PHRASE TYPE folders. The "Phrase Type" indicates how the second two measures are treated in the progression. In "NoRepeat" the second two measures are different than the first two. In "QuestionAnswer" the first two measures are the "question" and the second two measures are the "answer". In "Repeat" the second two measures are a repeat of the first two but played a little differently. We currently have the NoRepeat folder selected.


midi chord progression folder

Inside the PHRASE TYPE folders are the actual PROGRESSION folders. Each folder is named according to what progression it contains. The image below was taken in the "8 Chord" folder so that you can see it too. Notice that there are eight chord stops in each progression.


Finally we are at the actual MIDI files. (Examine the file name in the above image.) The file name contains more information about the progression. At the beginning of the file (up to the '_') is the Rhythmic Pulse. So, for example, the first file (starting with "Beat1And2") has chords that sound on the 1st and 2nd beats of the measure.

The second part of the file name (the part after the '_') is the Beat Grouping. [This is only included in complex time signatures like 7/8.] Each digit represents the eighth note count in each beat. So, in the first file shown above, the Beat Grouping is 223. So there are 2 eighth notes in the first beat, 2 eighth notes in the second beat, and 3 eighth notes in the third beat.

The third part of the file name (the part after the second '_') is the Chord Inversion indication. 0 = Root position, 1 = First inversion, and 2 = Second inversion. Each position applies to each chord sequentially.


midi chord markers in cakewalk

Inside each MIDI progression file are the MIDI CHORD MARKERS. Each chord stop and its chord symbol are provided. So, looking at the image below, each chord has its chord symbol (and its inversion) marked above it. So the first chord is the tonic major in second inversion, and the second chord is a minor second chord in first inversion, etc.

Midi Drum Patterns FAQ

Is the download version different than the shipped version?

No, they are exactly the same. The download version contains exactly the same files as the DVD except you can start using them now!

What is a Midi File?

The word "MIDI" is used to describe a few different things. A "MIDI file" can be thought of as "Sheet Music in Digital". (Sheet music that computers can read and play.)

Why use Prosonic Patterns instead of audio loops?

Midi is a superior method of music composition for a number of reasons.

If you've ever used audio loops to write music you know how frustrating it can be to get them to fit just right in your song. You might find a great drum loop but how can you develop it while keeping the same drum sounds? You can only make variations on the timbre of the sound itself and that's it.

With Prosonic Patterns you have total control over every aspect of each note. Need to bring the hi-hats up in the mix? Easy! Need to change that note and make it sweeter? Just move it where you want it! Don't like a note . . . delete it!

You can also use a Prosonic Pattern on any instrument. So you can use a drum Phrase on any instrument (flute or violin for example) and come up with very unique and creative musical ideas!

You can even change the tempo of a Prosonic Pattern and the sound of the drums will be exactly as you sampled it.

What software can I use Prosonic Patterns in?

Every Prosonic Pattern is mapped to the General MIDI Standard and is compatible with, and can be loaded into, any General MIDI compatible software or hardware device (ie: your favorite sequencer).

Loading them into Propellerhead's Reason™ and Twelve Tone's Sonar™ has been especially rewarding. They are perfect for Cakewalk, Project5, Battery 3, Cubase, Garageband, Pro Tools, Motif ES, Fruity Loops, EZdrummer, DFH, Sony's ACID® Pro, Ableton Live, and many more!

I write music in lots of styles and find the chord progressions I bought from Prosonic to be a breath of fresh air. These chords are great when I'm just trying to keep the mood light and riff on some ideas, every one of the files I've tried sound great and has interesting voicings. They are also really useful when I'm ready to dig in and develop an idea. I personalize the changes by rearranging the sequence, mixing chords from multiple sequences and copying the result to a monophonic bass track to work out cool inversions. I'm more than satisfied with my purchase.

An enormous time saver, for me as an experimentalist, I was amazed at how quickly I could put things together, chop, change and edit in a matter of minutes....... And the timing, levels of individual notes are all even and immediately adjustable in my chosen DAW. Some patterns lead me into places I never dreamed of going; they are inspirational to say the least! Plus how on earth could I ever imagine having every key and every time signature available at the simplest mouse-click? Just don't hesitate to buy at an unbelievable low price.

They always give me the boost I need when I have beat block, or when I want to do something new and creative. These are also great learning tools!

Eine großartige Akkordfolge ist der Schlüßel zu allem. Midi Dateien sind für mich das einfachste Werkzeug um mit jeder DAW und den entsprechenden Sounds meinen nächsten Track zu produzieren. Ich habe bisher viele MIDI Bibliotheken gekauft und erstelle auch selbst welche. Die Bibliotheken von Tony sind für mich unerreicht und sehr aufwendig konzipiert. Alles ist gut sortiert und beschrieben, ganz egal ob es die Chord oder Drum Bibliotheken sind. Ich brauchte etwas Zeit bis ich alles überblickt habe, liegt aber daran, das es hunderte Variationsmöglichkeiten gibt. In letzter Zeit greife ich sehr oft auf die MIDI Drum Loops, statt auf Samples zu, dadurch kann ich meinen Tracks in Verbindung mit anderen VST Plugs mehr Leben einhauchen. Gute Arbeit, Tony.

The MIDI files are great value for money and an excellent starting point for own songs, melodies and patterns. A huge amount of working MIDI sequences are provided by the packs. The file structure is well sorted, so it is easy to find a useful and working MIDI file. Also that the MIDI files are grouped, is a big help, when using multiple files in a song. A real timesaver for each one and a lot of purposes. I use it a lot in YouTube scores, when I want a fast result and upload a video as soon as possible, without using the YouTube provided songs. Thanks for these great libraries. - Stefan

Prosonic Midi Libraries are my go to cache of songwriting building blocks, providing the inspirational foundation for any new project.

Once run through my collection of Virtual Instruments, the library used breathes life into sounds, creating a full band or even an orchestral piece.

Have an idea? Open the Prosonic midi browser to audition a library and you're off to the races. I am constantly amazed at how fast I can get an idea in my head organized into a full production of rich tones.

Whether for fun or commercial use, I'm still using my libraries years after purchase and never fail to find new ways to work with them.

I started using the Prosonic Studios libraries a few years ago. I own almost all of the Prosonic Libraries. They have been crucial to developing my personal music production workflow. I am able to save time and money by auditioning the different patterns and voicing variations provided in each set, rather than solely creating just a few of the files on my own from scratch. They have helped me be more creative in expanding my sequencing and composition abilities within Ableton and the other Digital Audio Workstations that I experiment with. I recommend at least trying out one of the Time Signature and Genre sets to see the benefits of purchasing these for yourself!

Estas librerías MIDI de "prosonic studios" me han ayudado mucho a componer, producir y mejorar mi creatividad, sobretodo los beats de batería me dan un buen inicio para comenzar a hacer una canción, otros beats me ayudan a hacer música para géneros musicales que no domino como son la salsa o el hip hop. He podido hacer mis primeros beats de hip hop gracias a estas librerías de beats y chord progressions, en este momento estoy produciendo a mi banda usando estos beats de batería como guía para poder terminar la pre producción de las canciones.

These Midi patterns are definitely my starting point for creating new tracks. I've used the full progressions, and full drum beats with minimal editing in most of my work to this date.

This is definitely worth the money and useful if you're looking to simplify the creation process. It really helped me formulate my progressions and differentiate my options for my new songs.

The drum beats were easy to compose with EZ Drummer 2 and export to my DAW; coming up with new drum patterns for new and creative beats.

Bought my first Prosonic Studio MIDI 4-Voices Series for the purpose of increasing my limited understanding and application of Piano-Keyboard chord progressions (since I’m not a pianist by any standard)...Smile! However, I found the whole experience so fascinating, after just a few days of messing around with the MASSIVE collection of chord variations and possible progressions. Prosonic Studios do actually understand the science and language of chord formation, and have put a lot of work into producing rock-solid products for the hobbyist/musician.

For Windows PC users they also include The Prosonic MIDI Browser for easy browsing of the thousands of MIDI files they provide. I personally use a Mac, and it works perfectly well with my Toontrack added bonus to my other Toontrack MIDI Files I might add!

Tony Pappas' Prosonic Studio MIDI Libraries are fantastic. They have been a great tool for me to use in Ableton Live (they will work in any DAW). They are clearly organized by time signature and style and come with complete song/theme sections and also they are broken down into component parts (kicks, rides, snares, etc...) so very easy to drop in what you need. Since they are standard .mid files they are very easy to use as a starting point to get your groove on, then you can easily modify them in your DAW of choice to fit your track as needed. The Chord progression and arp libraries are extensive... seems like millions of files, lol... practically every chord progression known to man... and even some that aren't.

The 4 voice chord progressions (for basic time signatures) is so useful in coming up with an initial inkling or inspiration for sections or even entire song foundations. I will likely get the complex time signatures down the road.

The arp patterns have an incredible variety to choose from in both major and minor keys (with many combinations I've never even heard before). The sheer number of choices available can actually be overwhelming at times but its far better too many than not enough...

Both would be legit tools for beginners and a good reference library for the more advanced musician.

I used ProSonic's triads and chord progressions to help me in my compositions of electronic music. They were so much fun to put into my soft synths and get my creative juices going. These libraries were some of my "go-tos" when I got into a creative funk. I was amazed by the depth and breadth of the libraries. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in coming up with some unique ideas or who would like to explore some new or interesting melodic or rhythmic ideas. -Keats Handwriting

So far, I've purchased two libraries from Prosonic, one of chords progressions and one arpeggio package, and I'm amazed at both the quality and quantity of the patterns here.

Whether you're looking for some ideas for chord progressions or want to build an entire song from scratch, these libraries have you covered.

The price is also pretty nice, considering that it would only buy you a fraction of this number of patterns on many similar sites. I've hardly scratched the surface of my first two but I can't wait to get my next library!

These progressions were assembled with both talent and mathematical precision. Laid out in logical sequences, it's a snap to find what you are looking for. They are arranged in small enough chunks to fit easily into my Yamaha's annoyingly arcane file system.

With such a massive quantity and variety of clips you should always be able to find sounds with precisely the mood and nuance you seek.

As a teaching tool they are invaluable. You can hear the subtle effects that small (or large) changes have on perception and use these in subsequent efforts.

This is one of those rare times when a product that I didn't even know existed has instantly gained a prominent position in my musical toolbox. Thanks Prosonic!

I have really enjoyed the midi libraries I have purchased from prosonic studio. The MIDI files are very natural sounding and also greatly arranged. It is easy to navigate through the files to find what you're looking for because everything is labeled by the cord and/or note. I have purchased a lot of midi libraries and content online and often felt like I did not get my money's worth because the MIDI files we're basic and didn't sound very natural and we're not things that I didn't feel like I could have done on my own as to where prosonicstudio on the other hand gives you an edge moving into your production!

A fantastic value for the money! Well organized and complete, my library was super easy to install. After browsing just a few progressions, I was hit with the inspiration bug and started working on a new song right away!

I find the library is easy to navigate, making it very simple to find just the right progression for the song I am writing. Once I find the pattern I need, I love being able to just quickly drag the file right into my Logic Pro X. This has considerably sped up my workflow!

I find these patterns extremely invaluable. I have been poking around Loop Pack sites and subscription services for the ideal midi patterns for ages and always had to shell out lots of money just to get some that 'will do for now'.

Tony has taken on a gargantuan task, a labor of love coming up with sequences that work very well together and that will fit in admirably with anyone's music producing needs.

They also help a lot when you have music writer's block. It's a great starting point to what could be your next masterpiece or hit. Well done Tony!

Prosonics libraries are very very good value for the money, First of all, they are arranged/organized sensibly so finding what you want is a breeze. They are very broad in scope and cover a lot of ground so it's very likely you will get what you are after. Simply find a style, select a key, then choose from the many variants available. I get particularly happy results using the chord progressions for feeding any arpeggiator. They work great for me especially since my keyboard and music theory skills are not strong. Hands down, a good buy. Do not miss this addition to your music tool box.

I have purchased and regularly now use several Prosonic Midi Libraries

They are inestimably helpful in sparking ideas, developing harmonic progressions, and inspiring melodies that take my original ideas into new directions.

There are so many variations in these libraries that musicians from practically any genre should find them to be extremely useful. And they should be particularly helpful to people trying to understand harmony, composition and music theory.

An amazing collection. Quality. Utility. Flexibility. Attention to detail. Ease of use. These collections are at the top of the heap.

The tracks sound amazing and provide lots of great ideas. Plenty of variety which I can then mix and match and customize.

They are a powerful toolkit filled with MIDI patterns and supporting MetaData to facilitate their use in your favorite DAW or other MIDI application.

They are great for use in composing and as inspiration for new ideas. The documentation and organization are well done. These are the best products of their kind I have ever used.

I purchased my first Prosonic Libraries 2 or 3 years ago and still find them a superb reference point when looking for interesting drum patterns and also when hunting out chord progression variations.

I highly recommend the triad and 4-voice chord progressions.

The libraries are huge and represent amazing value for money - the chord progressions are exhaustive and I will guarantee that you won't find anything out there to match this unique offering.

On top of all the above Tony is very responsive to any requests and very helpful.

With every collection purchased, I was never disappointed. I appreciate the value for money of each library. I highly recommend Prosonic Libraries to all music producers. The libraries make it much easier to start producing and with a wide variety of genres there is something available for everyone.

The file and folder structure also makes it a breeze to find exactly what your looking for and even if you have little or no musical background (like myself) its not difficult to begin composing using Prosonic Libraries. Don't think just buy!

Used in Ableton, Pro Tools and Maschine Studio

I have been using Prosonic midi libaries for a couple of years and find them invaluable. I will often start with one of the Prosonic templates as a base and build a song from there. I have used in Ableton, Pro Tools and Native Instruments Maschine Studio.

I will also say the drum patterns were extremely useful as a learning tool when first getting my head around creating realistic drums for my computer based music. I had never played the drums before and other midi patterns I picked up elsewhere were very basic and did not provide much variety.

They provide the "get me started" building blocks

I do not consider myself an especially creative person. But with the Prosonic libraries I can still make music!

They provide the "get me started" building blocks that I use with my Digital Audio Workstation midi software to expand into full pieces. Transpose, copy 'n' paste, edit here and there, assign instruments to the tracks, and there I am - a complete work! With assurance that "the notes go together", which is an important benefit for someone like me who has only limited music theory. Don't let that hold you back!

I especially like the drum beats, though. And the syncopation options Prosonic provides give me plenty of opportunity to "mix it up" and avoid falling into a simple, boring 4-4 beat.

Thank you Prosonic Studios!

Prosonic midi libraries are great starting material for manipulating midi in Ableton Live (and I assume other programs as well).

They will enhance your creativity as opposed to limiting it if you have enough of an imagination and a playful spirit. Throwing together a mock-up or prototype is fast and easy.

A seemingly endless supply of files and options. High quality and real musical progressions, I've been able to use and modify these right out of the gate.

The only problem i ever had was moving the unzipped midi files to a new drive. There are so many of them that it took 7 hours to move them all. This is not a negative, it is awesome you get so much content for so little. I don't understand how he is able to come up with so much.

As a singer, songwriter, and producer who has lots of great ideas, but NOT the greatest foundation in music theory, I have found these libraries to be INVALUABLE in my production. If I have an idea I am toying with, I can always count on these libraries to have a progression that fits. And when I'm feeling a creative block, a few minutes spent browsing them typically gets me going into something that ends up great!

It always brings me joy when someone listens to a project of mine and comments on my playing. I secretly know that without these libraries it would be a different story!!

I purchased Triad Midi Progressions for two reasons

1. I needed some MIDI files for music production in my DAWs (Ableton Live, FL Studio and Studio One), and

2. I wanted to learn how to play some of these progressions on keyboards as I am a trained percussionist and not a keyboard player.

What I did not expect was the huge number of MIDI files in the pack, I have not even listened to 10% of them!

I will go back to this library over and over again for inspiration and practice.

I often use the "4-Voice MIDI Chord Progressions" as an Inspiration or as a starting point. It is also useful for me to practice Improvisation.

I'm really impressed about the large amount of Chord Progressions. It's great to use them with Instruments which can play Arpeggios from Chords.

I also like the "Major & Minor Arpeggios" which I often use in my Vienna Instruments Pro Midi Sequencer (you can import Midi-Files...).

I also like that all future versions are free for Life.

With a little effort you can build some good progressions. I usually use the midi within EZ Keys then send the signal to other virtual instruments, lounge lizard, classic organs, pianos etc...

You can even use the midi progressions to send to orchestral vst instruments. All depends on how creative you are using the midi.

All the chord progressions are organized very well, so its easy to lay something down quick. All in all i think its a good package and all at a decent price.
