Music Demos

The tracks below were created by various artists to show what you can do with Prosonic Patterns. Each track uses at least one of the patterns in this library.


There are over 24,600 Rap and Hip-Hop drum loops in this library and they all sound as good as, or better than, the demos.

More Information


This isn't like one of those old "drum pattern" books made of paper. It's a full-blown midi library that's over-flowing with thousands of professional Rap & Hip-Hop drum beats and rhythm patterns!

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

This collection is like having a WHOLE LIBRARY of drum books, and you can use the beats in your own music royalty-free!

These Rap and Hip-Hop Drum Beats have been inspired by greats like: Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy, Tupac Shakur, Eric B. & Rakim, Jay-Z, OutKast, N.W.A, Notorious B.I.G., Grandmaster Flash, Nas, Ice Cube, LL Cool J, De La Soul, Kanye West, Scarface, Dr. Dre, Wu-Tang Clan, Eminem, The Beastie Boys, Snoop Dogg, and many others.

Each beat is carefully crafted-to-groove, so there isn't a bunch of "flash" in there (like so many other libraries where the drummer's just showing-off). The beats in this library are solid and professional, with just enough fill to make them interesting, so you can actually build songs that work.

I've experienced instant-inspiration and song writing has never been easier. Each rhythm is like a "creative launch-pad" for your ideas and the 'next part' in the song just leaps out at you! I get so many ideas that the challenge now is getting them all recorded fast enough!

If you perform an instrument these patterns are an invaluable tool for learning rhythm. I play a lot of different instruments and these have instantly made me a better player.

There are over 24,600 four-bar Rap & Hip-Hop rhythms in this library [and they all sound as good as the demos] so be ready to take your music to the next level!

File Info & Folder Layout

1. ROOT:

Drum Loop Root

The first folder is the ROOT folder. This folder contains all of the MIDI Phrases. It is named "Prosonic Phrases 3.0" and is selected (highlighted blue).


Drum Loop Style

The ROOT folder contains the STYLE folders. The Blues & Rock-n-Roll folder is selected.


Drum Loop Time Signature Feel

Each STYLE folder contains the TIME SIGNATURE & FEEL folders. In the Common Time Signatures library there are 6 time signatures: 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 6/8, 9/8, and 12/8. In the Complex Time Signatures library there are 7 time signatures: 5/4, 6/4, 7/4, 5/8, 7/8, 10/8, and 11/8. There are 6 possible feelings: [Normal Straight], [Normal Medium-Swing], [Normal Hard-Swing], [Double-Time Medium-Swing], [Double-Time Hard-Swing].


Drum Pattern Theme

Inside the TIME SIGNATURE & FEEL folders are the THEME folders. The MIDI Phrases are grouped into "themes". Each THEME has a particular groove to it and there are lots of variations within each THEME.


Drum Pattern Syncopation

Inside the THEME folders are the SYNCOPATION folder and the midi files. The SYNCOPATION folder contains all the theme phrases in a heavily syncopated format. The syncopation folder is only in 4/4 and if you're looking for something a little different check here. [I personally find this folder to be the most interesting... it's amazing how many lyrical sequences can come out of asymmetrical patterns.]


Drum Pattern Midi Files

Inside each THEME folder are the actual midi files. The first number in the file name is the variation group. In this case there are 8 variations in variation group zero "0". The second number is the number of notes in the file. So the selected file has 46 notes in it. Next come the names of the instruments contained inside the pattern. So the selected pattern has KICKS and HI-HATS playing in it. The last number is just a unique index and has no significance.


Drum Pattern Midi Files Cont

As you go down the list the patterns continue to "build up". There are more instruments added (and therefore more notes) so the textures get thicker. I've scrolled down a little here, notice the file I have selected, it has 99 notes played by 8 instruments: Kick, Ride, Toms, Snare, Hand Claps, Congas, Side-Stick, and Bongos.


Drum Instruments

Inside the ROOT folder is the Singles folder. (It has a "z_" in front to make it go to the bottom of the list.) The Singles older contains all the single instrument patterns. Notice, in this example I've selected the 6th Hi-Hats file. The first number in the file is the note count. The last number is a unique index.


Drum Instruments File Name

Here are the abbreviations for each instrument. They're simple, but I'm putting them here in case you're interested.

Sticks=STIX | Kicks=KICK | Clap=CLAP
Toms=TOM | HiHats=HAT | Snares=SNAR
SideStick=SSTK | Bongos=BONG | Congas=CONG
Cabasa=CABA | Maracas=MARA | Guiro=GIRO
Claves=CLAV | Cuica=CICA | Castanets=CAST
Shaker=SHAK | Rides=RIDE | Cymbals=CYMB
Tambourine=TAMB | Cowbell=COWB | Triangles=TRIA
WoodBlocks=WOOD | Timbale=TIMB | Agogo=AGOG

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 am extremely happy with the ProSonic products I purchased. I am in the process of writing three separate albums and these drum loops are superb.

I use Abelton Live 10 regularly for music composition. I had researched drum loops and found Prosonic products to have received good reviews. As a result, I purchased some loops.

The creation of drum loops using Prosonic Studios has been a dramatic improvement in the drum tracks I am able to create. I find the drum loops to be useful and versatile.

The drum pattern midi packs I purchased have been very inspirational to me. I use them with various drum plugins to create the perfect starting point for my tracks. I've found that they are really well arranged within folders, so it's easy to build up drum arrangements as required. It's simple to modify the patterns and combine grooves to make your perfect beat. I would highly recommend Prosonic's packs to any producer that needs solid midi material, to deliver quick professional results and/or to inspire more customised creations. Have fun!

Prosonic is just the thing you need when you need to be inspired. Innovative libraries that drive your imagination to work in tandem with its extensive libraries.

Mixing the Major and Minor Arpeggios with Hard-Rock drums. Is it madness or genius? Unlimited amounts of combinations at affordable prices. You won't know what you will discover till you have the tools to mix and match.

Music is expression. Mathematical signatures imbued with the human spirit to give it life. Don't miss out on the opportunity to express yourself or discover what it is you can create with Prosonic.

I purchased three midi libraries from Prosonic Studios. I have used Blues & Rock and Roll, Country & Folk, and Pop & Soft Rock. All of these libraries have a lot of content and the price is great!

I have used them in both EZ Drummer and live with my Beat Buddy drum pedal (after some editing because the Beat Buddy has a more limited midi map than these great midi samples) and I am impressed with the results.

There are so many great grooves to inspire your creativity, and there are a lot of small variations to give your songs some life! Another thing I appreciate is that these grooves are song oriented, not over done with too much going on like so many loops I have found in the past.

Try Prosonic for yourself, they have a lot of free midi patterns that you can try out before buying. I have been very pleased with my purchase.

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

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!

Prosonicʻs beats and chords are downright awesome! I have used their libraries in a number of my compositions and scores and have always had amazing results. Scoring music for film and video can sometimes sometimes lead you down the path of listening to numerous bland patterns. What keeps me coming back to Prosonic is the originality and quality of their libraries. The music sounds fresh and the scores come together quickly. There are a lot of choices out there on the internet, but few can match the libraries that Prosonic delievers!

Drums are always full of colours and flowing, their patterns can make you write a piece in a few minutes and even better, can give you instant inspiration and teach you how to play real drums, finding odd and nonetheless always flowing grooves and find those little shifts in tempo that are so important to give that human feel to music.

Excellent quality patterns. Very musical and usable with a DAW or SAMPLER. Like the variations and how versatile the grooves and midi files are. Also the way files are organized and laid out in the folder make it very easy to use and find a groove or rhythm for your song or production.

What I like the most about the libraries is that they are usable in demos or final productions. I bought several libraries in my first purchase and they have all been used in music I have been working on recently. Great overall product.

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.

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!

You just cannot go wrong with these products, guys! The pricing is quite affordable...and did I mention that Prosonic do offer COUPONS every now and then?

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.

I'm a full-time Composer/Sound Designer for video games. I do a lot of work on casual games, so I'm always working under tight deadlines. Casual games don't have 2 year schedules like AAA games.

I typically don't have time to program drum patterns a note at a time, and I don't have a MIDI kit to record in my production studio. Prosonic MIDI drum libraries are my "go to" resource for creating drums quickly.

I know some people like using .wav loops for their drums, but I paid a lot of money for high-end drum sample libraries. They sound better than loops. Using MIDI to trigger my libraries (instead of using .wav loops) gives me the flexibility to alter any pattern to meet the exact needs of the piece I'm working on.

The Prosonic MIDI drum libraries are a great resource.

Have looked around for ages for decent midi patterns. Stoked to find this site. After listening to the samples (which were really effective the way they use the same demo) I decided to get the heavy metal patterns.

As a singer songwriter with guitar my primary instrument, these patterns really gave me the foundation I needed.

The variety just within this first pack was huge, all neatly packed away in time signature folders.

It was very easy to set my tempo, choose my kit instrument, and find a nice pattern. Because of the volume of patterns it’s so easy to get a few nice changes through the song. Singles give that edge to make a part standout.

Recently came back and picked up a few more pattern packs to really branch out with some songs.

You can play around with "humanization" (quantize) and get the groove you want. Every thing is very well sorted and you find the Patterns you're looking for even so there are 1000s of them..

This is one of my go-to libraries.

I use a lot of MIDI drums so these are a great time saver....just find a compatible beat and throw it on the track and the song is off and running. Then I go back later and add fills, intro, bridge parts, fit the song.

And with MIDI files, nothing is can change tempos and keys and structure before ever locking down the track.

They are easy to use, easy to edit....for a songwriter like me they are an indispensable tool of the trade. I have a variety of styles for any occasion and this is one of my go-to libraries.

Simply put, these packages were a life saver for me.

Like many singer-songwriters, I've taken a complete DIY approach to music scoring and production. I bought one package of drum loops, and with one support email, was off and running.

The materials are complete, easy to work with (and edit) and played well in my DAW and third party drum sample (Battery by Native Instruments).

The variety within each package is significant. Not only is there ample variety to choose from, they include "singles" (each drum in a separate file) so once you lay down your scratch tracks, you can easily create individual tracks for each drum, giving easy editing and variability.

In short, if you are creating music from scratch, these take help with composition through final production.

I would highly recommend the Prosonic Libraries. I work with a number of different artists, whose tastes are as diverse as the Libraries. When we get stuck in the creative process, I play a couple of the tracks and it inevitably stirs the creative process and gets us back on track.

I would recommend for the professional, the aspiring and the garage band musicians. Even my son, a budding guitarist, uses it to develop his timing rhythm. So stop wasting your time with other products that will leave you wanting more and choose Prosonic to move your music to the next level. Aaron Knapp, ItsAK Music Productions

If you are like me and swimming in Kontakt instruments, drum machines and thousands of individual drum samples then these packs are perfect to build a new kit, get a drum beat down quick, build a click track or just get moving quickly on other parts of your productions.

I am very pleased with the product. Its well organized and easy to pick the correct pattern! I personally use them for inspiration. Sometimes I slightly edit them to perfection.

I believe the included software is very usefull. I use it all the time. The only problem I see is that there are waaaaay too many variations of everything. I understand the why; but I believe it would be better without that many option. +100k options its hard too deal with sometimes. Of course, the way I deal with it is simply chequing one or two options per folder.

Anyways, its a good product.

I also like having a wide variety of styles and patterns, because these suggest ideas I wouldn't have thought of. In addition, we are always brining up new drummers, so if I can provide them with a drummers guide track, they can catch the feel of the song. Many thanks for providing this tool!

Although I haven't had anything released as yet it did give me confidence to start sending my tracks to record labels and I've had some good feedback.

When I first saw the pack of House patterns I thought "Nah, I can do that myself" but then I thought maybe give it a try.

I bought it and just opened it up and put some random patterns in Logic. I was really impressed of the realism one can get with even simple kits. I even started learning new techniques for midi programming and this helps me every day.

There was a book I bought a few years ago the 260 patterns for midi. It is a great book. But with that pack I got many more patterns and I can instantly try them out instead of having to program them in myself. That is great! Thanks, Tony!

I'm a big fan of the midi drum kits on this site. If I have a lack of inspiration I can always just drop some midi files down and play around. If I am feeling inspired, I can take these midi files and transform them entirely.

If you are familiar with your DAW, then you should understand the vast possibilities that begin with midi files. The drum beats give a good fundamental structure to which you can slice and dice and edit to come up with beats like you never heard before, really cool!

I also like how any of these files can easily be personalised to become your own creation.

If you’re looking for midi libraries to help build up sound for your songs, Prosonic Studios has what you’re looking for. What I like most is that they’ve done the groundwork for you to simplify your work. In one recent song, “In Memorium”, I used their Triad Chord Progression library to add lead horn and background ambience synth modules – there was no guesswork required for the harmonies, since the level of complexity I wanted was already there and available for the choosing. A bit of innovation with the files did the rest for that part of my song.

For another song, “Swing Illusional #2”, I was looking to add a more subtle background ambience to contrast the rhythm of my funk guitar style. It was simple. Prosonic’s library provided what otherwise might have taken extra hours to put together – all I had to do was add the desired midi files into the plug-in modules I was using and I could then tweak minor adjustments to the swing values and sounds to get the results I wanted.

Especially when time on a project is limited, Prosonic libraries can help limit the need to reinvent the wheel and allow you to spend more time on the creative side of your song for generating diverse sounds and fitting it all together with various techniques for something new. And that’s really what I personally enjoy doing the most. For that reason, I turn to my Prosonic midi library for ideas & foundations that I can use in some of my songs.

As a resource, these libraries are affordable – easy to use – effective. You can check out for yourself what I did with mine – both songs on Soundcloud are available for free listening. Prosonic Studios helped make song creation and production inspired work for me. No matter how your imagination puts them to use, their libraries can do the same for you.

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!

And the good thing is that since these are MIDI patterns, one can easily edit MIDI notes, add or delete notes to add some variety to the pattern or suit one's creative taste.

I appreciate the value for the money that the drum library offers. I use the patterns within Cakewalk Sonar X3 (Studio version) and sometimes with XLN Addictive Drums and Session drums (within Cakewalk).

I utilise Prosonic Studios Major/Minor Arpeggios regularly in my compositions, along with Techno House Drums. I found the process, quality and ordered layout of the installed files a joy to work with.

The amount of workable files received was beyond my expectation, giving me plenty of options when looking for that little something special not found in many other packs I have utilised from elsewhere.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Prosonic Studios packs, and if your unsure they have plenty of free downloadables to get you started and hear how a small portion of the pack will sound for you.

If you are looking for inspiration I strongly recommend this

As a Prosonic user I can say that my experience has been great.

I am a song writer and a musical producer of TV shows, radio programs, advertisment jingles and life music shows from Mexico City always looking for new ideas, Prosonic has a great variety of music styles and chord progressions that are very inspirational, once you start as a Prosonic user you never know where you are going to stop.

If you are looking for inspiration I strongly recommend this site, it rocks!!! Let the music begin!

Thanks guys, very good job...

I am usually not the kind of guy that likes everything without finding something wrong or scanty about it...

Well there is nothing scanty here. What not to like? Really well organised, bunch of variety of well crafted midi patterns. When I get prepped midi drum patterns or loops, I almost always feel like changing the patterns and accents. Or add stuff. Because usually they come either to square or dry or repetitive or all of the above...

But to my surprise these midi patterns required very little adjustment. The need to tweak which rises up after an improve session, usually either with a Keyboard or a Bass, played over a pattern. Because you will want to arrange a new traffic accordingly. Since the drummer can't hear me, I have to do the listening for him.

The inspiration comes from small details and nuances for me. And then a good sound. But playing with a good drummer is a must. When you feel that good drum beating, it just pumps you up and elevates your playing like nobody's business..

So I felt like I had to write something about this trip...

I haven't tried everything but I certainly feel drown to indulge myself with more of the good stuff here...

Thanks guys, very good job...


These files give me the freedom to create

I have used ready-made midi drum libraries from Prosonic for backing tracks and recordings and have never been disappointed with the results. I can tailor the midi files for any of my sample libraries and because they are midi, I can customize them to suit any project. It takes a lot of tedium out of my workflow, drastically cutting down production time, (and money).

Not being a drummer, these files give me the freedom to create musical projects that would have been impossible for me before now.

Many thanks! Charlie Balogh

I have to say that ProSonic products have really helped inspire my songwriting and filled in the gaps where I was short on ideas. These products can be used as a kickstart to creating a new song or to drop in when you need to change up an existing one to add some color.

I'd highly recommend them to anyone out there wanting to create. You really can't go wrong with the money because similar products can cost much more and don't always offer the same value that ProSonic does.

Customer service is top notch, very responsive.

As a producer building my MIDI library, the Prosonic Studio chords and drum patterns were very useful for instant inspiration.

Also, the chords and drum patterns are also great for speeding up a producer's work flow. We all know how important a speedy work flow is in the music production process. There are thousands of MIDI files and they are organized in folders to keep you organized.

Music producers looking for this should check out these products.

Customer service is top notch as the staff is very responsive to questions/requests.

I was used to create my own midi drum patterns for years, spending a lot of time to ultimately achieve rather poor ones, lacking of true feeling and live taste. Then I started to look at ready made ones in the marketplace and found the Prosonic libraries. Great ! They just sound good and the way they are organized make them very easy easy to use. I am now saving a lot of time and quickly achieve the kind of result I am looking for.

I got a lotta drums for the money from Tony. The patterns were very diverse and excellent for a songwriter like myself who likes to always start every song using the best beat I can find.

Unlike other bundles of midi grooves the prosonic packets contain many many more variations of basic beats and even some that are not so basic. As a foundation for any good song you can find, if not exactly what you are looking for, you will find something very close.

After asking Tony what would be the best collection for my style he suggested the "PoP and Soft Rock" really fit the bill. The files also integrated seamlessly with EZ drummer2 making the whole process very smooth.

I highly recommend getting your beats from Prosonic instead of the bigger companies that charge more and offer less.

Prosonic patterns always make it into my music. There's a great variety of sequences for rhythm and chords and also split single instrument midis. This makes the creation of polyrhythms easy as layering midi tracks and I'm not stuck with someone else's idea of a bass hit. Then you can take prosonic drum tracks and run them through a synth for more exotic sounds. I can spend more time creating the sounds rather than fighting with the timing. The variety of Prosonic patterns are just what I need.

I bought the Blues and Rock n Roll drum pack and a Triad progression pack from Tony at Prosonic. They have been a great aid in kicking off fresh ideas as they are very simple to access and drop into your DAW of choice.

They are also ideal as material to use as starting points for tracks that you can easily cut and paste to quickly create variations in your music. I had thought for a while the Prosonic packs would be useful but they have exceeded my expectations. Thanks Tony

The Prosonic MIDI drum patterns are a wonderful way to break the bonds of your favourite drum plugin. They can be easily fed into sequencers and plugins alike, offering longer takes than most drumsaplers have on board.

The stylistic variety is unique and the compability and execution (technically as well as musically) are superb. If you are not a drummer yourself, this is the next best you can come to it. A useful addition to every media composer's palette which will speed up your workflow when creating drum tracks.

As a long time Studio Producer, and "time served" Sound Engineer, I feel well qualified to advise you not to walk by Prosonics Products. The quality & also the VARIETY of their patterns stand tallest among ANY other available on the market.

Not mere Drum loops, but song builders & groove tools of the highest order. ALL patterns come split, enabling you to utilise these Midi patterns with far more control than any other. Everything tidily tagged...ooh...& the Free midi browser is a GODSEND!

I use the patterns for techno music. I find that they are great for instant production of music which I then adapt within my DAW. Drag and drop straight in, EASY! The midi files I use are for all aspects from kicks, baselines, hi-hats and percussion loops.

The swing elements give a great variation on your basic 4/4 groove and the amount of creation I feel is limitless. This is the only midi collection that I own and use. I don't feel that I need another.

I got myself a copy of the Techno & House Midi Drum Library and I definitely got great value for my money. The library is packed with high quality loops and provides me with instant inspiration to start a new track or to add a little spice to an existing one.

Prosonic libraries are the most detailed, musical, and comprehensive midi packages in the world.

You cannot find midi samples of this kind of quality and in such large quantity per package anywhere.

Since buying prosonic I have never needed another midi pack and have enough material to feed my vsts for life.

Can't thank you enough Tony, you have eliminated all writers block and given me an infinite pallette of musical capability for years to come.

Tremendous value, they're excellent patterns and priced very fairly for the number and quality in each package. The MIDI files are well catalogued and organized, with a natural feel and good dynamics.

I've used these in Toontrack's EZDrummer 2 and in Superior Drummer 2.0, integrating them with other samples. The mapping works well in General MIDI compatible drummer settings, and I haven't experienced any problems with other software.

I really enjoyed the variety and realism of the Latin & Salsa patterns, which are difficult to get a good feel with. Plenty of dynamics in the Heavy Metal & Punk patterns also.

As a songwriter they do just what I need them to.

I have found it very difficult to find great latin rhythms for a song I'm working on. After weeks of searching various libraries and listening to a lot of loops, I took a chance on the Prosonic "Latin and Salsa" loops library. I'm happy to say that it far exceeded my expectations.

The beats have a great feel and there is a tremendous selection to choose from.

The two biggest challenges this library has presented is a) getting the time to go through all the great loops (a great problem to have) and b) staying focused on my original song when it's so easy to be distracted by the new rhythms into writing more new songs! (another great problem to have).

Thanks Tony!

Heres the thing i loved about the bundle of drum patterns i purchased. They helped me compose things i didnt know i had in me. The creative inspiration alone made the purchase worth it and then some!

Expirimenting with time signatures unfamiliar to me has helped me grow as a musician, and these bundles have so many feels to choose from.

Im glad i acted on the impulse. I got so much more pleasure messing with my DAW because of my purchase. I recommend these bundles to anybody needing help getting out of a creative rut.
