Free Loops For Steven Slate Drums
Here's a link to some free MIDI files for SSD4. You can use these grooves just like the loops that come with SSD4. All our paid products come with MIDI for SSD4 but now you can "try before you buy".
Here's a video showing you how to install MIDI files into Steven Slate Drums 4.
Groove Monkee supports all major MIDI mappings and formats. Please view our MIDI Formats PDF. Our files work in any software that imports MIDI files.
Highly Detailed Recordings
Our MIDI loops are recorded using all available hi-hats: tip, shank closed and open, and various openings. This makes for more detailed and realistic recordings.
Unlike many of our competitors, we do NOT record our drummers in General MIDI! We remap the loops to general midi for those that need the gm mapping.
Usage in Steven Slate Drums
Our MIDI loops are mapped to match Steven Slate Drums EXACTLY. Plus, you can preview the loops in the Steven Slate Drums Groove Browser. You do NOT need to use the SSD drum remap feature!
