Toontrack Drum MIDI: Modern Pop Grooves
Drum MIDI Pack
The Pop Chop Shop.
Drum grooves for all walks of modern pop, ideal for any songwriter.
Pop as a cultural music phenomenon is broader than ever before. In its vast landscape, the already blurred lines between the styles it encompasses are constantly thrust to the side to make room for new iterations. As a foundational component in any genre, drums in particular are often in the forefront of this experimental and ever-changing panorama. Sometimes all-digital or all-acoustic, other times hybrids of both or somewhere floating in between. Production values, one may argue. But fact remains, the groove is the heartbeat of any song.
"I wanted to create a MIDI pack with grooves that had that tight pocket-feel to them. Each groove works as is, but in modern pop productions, a lot of times a drum beat is comprised of several elements outside of what one may consider a traditional drum groove. The beauty of MIDI and working within Toontrack's software is the limitless possibilities to change, rearrange and combine bits and pieces to come up with unique variations. Take the hi-hat element from one of the grooves and mix with a programmed kick and snare beat, add a shaker or an electronic component and you have the best of both worlds. I think this collection is ideal for that type of experimentation," says Norman Garschke.
Welcome to a collection of grooves and fills, perfect for any curious and creative songwriter looking for a palette of new foundational ideas.
"I think one of the biggest challenges in modern pop productions is to keep the human feel. Starting with full drum grooves, or elements thereof, performed by a real drummer is a great advantage," says Norman.
To Norman's point, MIDI offers a bottomless well of creative options. Apply an acoustic kit to it and you get one feel – change it up with an electronic kit or any other sounds at your disposal and you end up with something completely different. Mix, match, change, and rearrange – with the limitless framework of EZdrummer 2 or Superior Drummer 3, only your imagination sets the limits.
