Thank you for the great Grooves!!! Sincerely Burkhard Frauenlob
Great drum beats - a better deal than most of TT midi packs I purchased
great product and top service.
Not as good as would have hoped I thought there would be more variety and more different feels. Not bad but not outstanding
Useful and diverse! Great selection of grooves and full kit fills. Wish it had even more fills...just shells, no cymbals, but otherwise really happy with it.
good midi files Really useful, you hear that its a real drummer. I sure will buy some more ....
Versatile Variety Nice selection of grooves and variants, very usable.
Actually usable grooves! Actually usable grooves!
Good Midi Loops! Great prices for what you get! Thanks!
Decent set of Beat Buddy rhythms These are solidly compatible with Singular Sounds Beat Buddy drum machine. Only thing I'd like is to have more than one variation per patch, as well as better fills.
Just what I wanted !!! Very satisfied!!! hope to see you soon...AB
Jazz Good collection of jazz riffs!
Will buy more Exactly what I needed for my Jazzy projects
Great MIDIs! I love these MIDI files. As A guitarist I can say they really give you the feel of a real drummer. Moreover it comes in so many formats that I can use them with different VIs
Natural feel. Plenty of usable Natural feel. Plenty of usable beats and fills. Easy implementation with Addictive Drums and BFD3. Great value for the money!
Great loops! Jazz Buddy is a welcome addition to my jazz and Latin compositions! All these loops will be used at some point for sure! Thanks Groovemonkee!
Works great in the mix! Works great in the mix!
Great I'd say better than Beat Buddy products
Good goodies It's exactly what I expected. Excellent for jazz measures especially in 6/8 with a lot of feeling in the playing. I'm now waiting for patterns in 11/8, 14/8 and other measures composed in the same feeling.
Good Value Some useful bread and butter beats and a lot of fills
Very well done! Jazz buddy is very useful. Would love to get in this category.
Delivers the jazz essentials Great job! It's nice to have the real 'essentials' of jazz drums on hand. One can add to these loops as needed, but a great jazz drummers know, sometimes less is more!
awesome lots of different rhythms
Jazz Buddy Nice collection of loops, great compliment to the SD3 core library. As always easy to install. This was my eighth pack so the quality keeps me coming back!
Great midi files Very well programmed, and I had no problem at all loading them in the EX Drummer browser. Highly recommended.
jazz buddy very useful and easy to use, with great fill.
Love Groove Monkee Its make my life a lot easier having access to great midi tracks.
Fantastic, as always I've been a fan of your loops for years, but the last time I purchased a pack was years ago, before the introduction of the SSD integration. You made a fantastic product even better! Love it!
JazzBuddy Great - easy to use and to find the right grooves
Technically Challenged I purchased jazz buddy to improve my performance with my beat buddy. without the help I received from Grove Monkey support I would not have been able to use the beats. support was quick to respond. Thank you and know i'm going thru the beats they sound great.
Jazz Buddy Great loops , with very nice intro and fills. Easy to work with. Love all of it.
Jazz Buddy I'm very pleased about these grooves library. I feel with them like with a real drummer. Very good work Groove Monkee Thanks
Jazz Buddy one of the best These are good feeling straight ahead grooves that are dynamic without losing the pocket. Tasteful with plenty of variety. Groove Monkee midi loops are my favorites.
These loops are now the base of my songwriting. The drummer who played them is simply fantastic! It's very useful to find these loops in an assortment of genres and time signatures. They're also easy to use (even for someone like me, sequencing directly on Logic) and the price is pretty affordable to boot! They're a very good product that deserves more publicity.
Beat Buddy Great loops, easy to use. Will get more loops, especially soft ballad style. THanks
Jazz Buddy /Beat buddy Grove Monkey and Beat Buddy's service is excellent. You couldn't wish for better . Once used to it the process of installing beats is straightforward but it does take a bit of getting used to.
Just what I was looking for Excellent jazz drums and easily dropped into SD2. Saved hours of time
AMAZING!!! What i like the most os the diffrent rithms one can play in minutes be in state of trance! Just playing and playing. Nice job!
love the variety i cant wait to use some of these files in my projects. There is so much variety and even just for jamming they are great fun. A great exercise is to load a few files one after the other, press play, take up your axe, and see what happens!
Versatile jazz grooves Good selection of jazz grooves in various styles. Much more useful than the toontrack basic jazz midi. And great value for money!
Great Jazz Beats Awesome jazz package for my beat buddy.Very usable I was wanting some beats i could use and edit myself with nice brush sound ....go no further.Also any questions they are always quick to get back to you.
Swinging rhythms. Lots of “rhythm box” jazz beats can be over complicated and difficult to lock in with. These grooves are great. Still enough going on to sound and feel authentic without getting too syncopated for the sake of it. Highly recommend.
great set of loops very easy to use, works great with all different formats I‘ve tried. And most of all, great & useful drumloops!
jazz buddy mostly good, but faster tempos not catered for. Ended up having to transform midi to double speed
nice groove I use the jazz midi files: they are really nice
Jazz set Perfect jazz loops for my needs, which is as a writer/ composer who requires a jazz 'feel' rather than straight ahead, full on jazz! Not too busy, easy to select and edit loops so that they fit in the context of a song/ piece. Quick and easy to dowload and get up and running with Superior Drummer 2.
Worth More Than I Paid For It I picked up two libraries on sale recently—my first Groove Monkey purchases. The content is extensive and the grooves work. Great value.
These are the Jazz Grooves missing from EZdrummer. As per the heading, the Jazzy Buddy set is the missing content in EZdrummer/Jazz for someone who needs more "straight ahead" practical swing content. Also easy to install and use.
Jazz Buddy This product, like all of the Groove Monkey products, has a lot of good quality, useable material. It is a great value for the dollar and I highly recommend it.
Jazz buddy I look forward to adding in additional patterns in the near future
Jazz Buddy, great building blocks Great building block grooves to dabble into some of my jazzier tunes, feels great!
Jazz Buddy I'm working with Beatbuddy and I'm looking for more natural, old style sounding, classic be-bop and swing grooves. This package is exactly what I needed. Excellent! Thanks. Gabor
Groovey I have found the loops to be top quality covering a wide range of rhythms, at a great price, response staff, Thanks
Jazz Grooves I´ve got a few sets of the Groove Monkey stuff to use with Studio One and my Native Instruments drum plugins - the usual Kontakt stuff. The ones with NI are good but the Groove Monkey ones are more useful in the way they are laid out - 8 bars instead of two in many cases. They also have the crashes in some of them which I always end up having to put in. My choice before buying these was simple. Do I want to waste my time drum programming only to have to spend ages making it sound a bit more natural or get real drummers to do it who in any case make drum patterns I'd spend weeks trying to programme. Well worth the money
Perfect for me Groove Monkee Jazz Buddy AD is a brilliant set. It has motivated me to do more jazz on my guitar and keyboard. As they say, it's not "too busy", just everything you need and nothing you don't for a small band sound. Thanks from New Zealand. Ron
Jazz tracks Worked perfectly for a jazz session...will use again and again!!
Groove Monkee Jazz Buddy I'm using these loops into Ableton Live for drums and bass loops to back up my guitar sessions. Also great for building songs. I like the quality and feel of of the Groove Monkee loops and use other Blues, etc and will be getting more in the future. Strongly recommend
Swinging Jazz I can use it for my blues backing
Excellent set to replace BeatBuddy stock jazz styles I've purchased Jazz Buddy set to replace stock BeatBuddy jazz grooves. I must say, that this set has immaculate quality! Drums really feels like playing by human. Also, an installation process is super fast and easy to deal with. Recomended to all BeatBuddy users!
I like it I was looking for some decent Bossa grooves I could use in a song I was working on and found them here (and in the World pack too). Alos found to be very useful is the ability to load the grooves into the Addictive Drums library and other drum applications. Well done. Thanks.
Just what I need I'm very happy with these grooves. They're very well played, and are extremely useful for a lot of musical situations. It doesn't happen so often that you can find such good material for a reasonable price ! Edward
This is a great addition This is a great addition to my library.
Jazz Buddy Good selection of good grooves at a good price;what more do you need?Excellent!
Excellent Support Service I emailed support for helping me with a purchase that was conducted in error, after realizing the wrong product that i already purchased was in my new order... Support immediately helped me out with my order and got it correct. Thank you Groove Monkee Tech Support, you guys are on point and very responsive!! Jose'
jazz buddy really nice collection of grooves. easy to put together.
I love the feel. Grooves with subtle touches and a lot of swing.
Excellent Excellent Midi files, flawless installation instructions, inexpensive.
will find their way into my production These loops are versatile and inspiring and fit perfect to ssd4 blackbird. They will surely find their way into some of my tracks :-)
Great product Great produt
Very Nice patterns These jazz patterns worked very well with Beat Buddy. Would like to find some for smooth jazz styles as well
Jazz Buddy ,,,when i need drums to go be-bop crazy, there's nothing better than Jazz Buddy from Groove Monkey. "
Great package with different jazz rhythms The default jazz patterns of the BeatBuddy are not well suited for smooth jazz songs, and this is the perfect extension.
Jazz Budy If you are a jazz guitar/piano player, this is the package that you need: it contains lots of very good jazz drum styles! The quality is top and the drum patterns are way better than the original build-in ones that came with the BeatBuddy. This is one of the huge advantages of the BeatBuddy, compared to the mini: you can extend the content and there is still lots of space available on the SD-card, so the future of your device is guaranteed.
Great!! Pianists are hard to make Jazz drum pattern But you can easily swing with this product
Jazz Buddy as soon as I downloaded - put to good use!!!
Jazz Buddy The grooves have a great unquantized feel and work perfectly with Studio Drummer and Superior Drummer
Best I have found I have tried other midi drum software and this is the easiest to use and most comprehensive
the best, thx the best, thx
Jazz Buddy Is Great! We use BeatBuddy in our combo and we do ALL kinds of music. The furnished BB Jazz patterns were pretty lame, so I ordered Groovemonkey's Jazz Buddy set of MIDI tracks. MUCH better...opened up areas where we could do jazz standards and big band swing with realistic fills and rhythms. Worth the $$ if you do any kind of jazz tunes. I especially like the Bongo Beat...reminds me of some Ray Charles tunes. I would like to see more of the same from Groovemonkey along with some Salsa patterns.
Nice expansion of my MIDI drum library The patterns are great, compatible with Toontracks and other software packages. As with most software directions, properly incorporating the Midi files with the drum software is dodgy, Groove monkey files work great once you load the file specific to your software.
Jazz Buddy - less comprehensive compared to previous Jazz midi package Well strutured but by far not as rich selection as was with the previous Jazz midi packages
Jazz Buddy I'm using the Jazz Buddy MIDI pack (along with others from Groove Monkee: Rock, Blues, etc.) with Addictive Drums 2 in SONAR Platinum. It's a major time saver when putting together a drum track and I love the wide range of patterns and styles. One thing I'd like to see: more one-bar clips for fills, ornaments, intros and outros. Keep up the good work!
Jazz It Up Jazz Buddy is the perfect buddy to my Groove Monkee collection. Another great purchase!! Not a single penny wasted!
An overall nice package. The midi files included where nicely performed, properly mapped and very userful. The only thing not so good was that there was no great variety in jazz styles and patterns.
Very Easy to work with I like the way the drum patterns are dived into intro, verse, fill and so on. Makes it easy to compose a song in EZ Drummer 2. Also the beats are not to busy. For me a simple fill in a song is best. Tony...........
good grooves I purchased three packages (jazz buddy, breakbeats and the funky grooves) to enhance my beatbuddy, which has to replace a drummer in live performances. All in all my little drummachine sounds much more "mature“ now. Thanks for the good job!!
Improvement on BeatBuddy Jazz but unusable for live gigs for live jazz swing gigs, we need a series of simple basic jazz and swing beats, that cut through so you can hear the beat over piano bass sax, and that recreate the sound and feel of a live drummer. BeatBuddy has nothing usable in the jazz genre, Jazz Buddy rectifies this for private rehearsal or students. Groove Monkey at least is jazz, but go to any music store and try the keyboards, just the drumming. why are a wide range of similar beats not available for Beat Buddy???
Jazz Buddy Having purchased my first Groove Monkee Midi Loops package in 2006, I have accumulated many of their great Loop packs over the years. Jazz Buddy is another great addition. I have used the loops in Addictive Drums, Slate 4 and Superior Drummer 2 and can say they work flawlessly - all mapped as they should.
Good Quite good.
Jazz Buddy I ordered a few loops from Groove Monkee and I am still trying to effectively get them into my DAW. You guys have been reall supportive in helping me. Thanks for the quick responses to my emails. Keep up the good work. From what I've experienced so far, the loops are great !
Jazz Buddy An excellent MIDI file collection, great for practice, composition and using in your own productions. Apart from the variety of Jazz styles and well considered formats, the enviable "feel" of the playing is what makes this such a useful product.
Jazz buddy Jazz buddy works as advertised and intended. I customize all my drum parts for back up of live music in clubs. Occasionally I use the groove monkey files for original music recordings in my home studio. is the best program of its kind that I have purchased from Groove Monkey.
Jazz Buddy excellent!
The best jazz, but needs more comping and more tempos. I bought a lot of jazz midi loops, since there are so many great plugins available that let you pick the drumsound you like best. And truth be told it's the only loop library that gives convincing jazz results. That's why it's so frustrating that there's too much fills and too few comping patterns. Cool down, drummer! I'm trying to play a melody here. And it's lacking in variety of tempos: no really fast waltzes, no really slow ballads, not really fast bebop and not enough modern postbop. Still great, but i'd appreciate to see volumes 2, 3, 4, 5...
Nuance and Focus Well conceived and executed package. Perfect for composers/arrangers. Played/recorded with nuance and focus. Creative player without clutter. Just excellent.
Instant gratification I was at my workstation one night and wanted to set up a track for improv practice. I use SSD4 and it didn't have a groove that I wanted so popped onto Groove Monkee, found Jazz Buddy and within a few minutes I had the practice track that I wanted.
Jazz Buddy midi loops library review There are two things that are missing here: 1 . brushes loops Brushes for ballads is a must here. How often a jazz ballad is played with sticks and not with brushes? 2. bossa nova grooves Jazz bossa nova with a swing feel is not so common as a straight eights bossa nova. If samba grooves are there, why not bossa nova?
Great grooves, great Service I bought these grooves for use with my BeatBuddy pedal. They are exactly what I was looking for. Really high quality rhythms, really well played. Perfect!
Jazz drums This was my first purchase of loops for use in garage band. I found the install confusing due to my lack of experience. I was expecting a spimple drag and drop as shown on your site. I finally understood that this was for Apple loops which was not applicable to the product I had purchased. I would have liked clearer information on the use and installation of Jazz Drums in Garage Band on the reference page. I'm not interested in making a finished song I'm interested in making interesting backing tracks for practice use. An ideal pack for me would be jazz drummers to add to the drum styles found in Garage Band.
