Amazing patterns. I can fully recommend these products
Absolutely precious retro funk loop! Absolut preziöse Retro Funk Loop! Simply fantastic, with the good samples I get the impression that a real drummer is playing in a small home studio, very dynamic, totally natural feeling, very easy to edit and create something new. Very authentic and precious work, just fantastic! Einfach fantastisch, mit den guten Samples bekomme ich den Eindruck, dass in kleinem Home Studio einen echten Schlagzeuger spielt, sehr dynamisch, total natürliches Gefühl, sehr leicht zu bearbeiten was Neues zu kreieren. Sehr authentische und preziöse Arbeit, einfach fantastisch!
Great for more than funk! These are great for more than just standard funk, I have been using them with rock of different styles. They can give such a cool, unexpected vibe. I really quite like them!
Very useful midi loops Very useful midi loops
Excellent pack of funky beats Love the way these beats are put into order of verse/chorus/bridge etc it makes my work flow so much quicker and easier.
Love Really Jumpstarted my songwriting. Thank you
Love it! Quite realistic. I use them for electronic projects too
Retro Funk MIDI Drum Loops Work great for my projects. I’m looking forward to trying other loops.
Retro Funk MIDI Drum Loops I love it! Just what I needed. A variety of grooves and fills to choose from.
Excellent rhythms; easy to organise Great rhythms, easy to organise -- Intro, Verse, Chorus, etc.
superb funk loops another gem from groovemonkee highly recommended by me. a big 10/10
Good patterns Good patterns, all useful and well laid out.
Perfect I'm not a drummer, so I use theses midi drum loops mostly in Native Studio drummer during the composing/production stage. The grooves are so great and natural that it looks like cheating. All the nuances, the groovy imperfections, the dynamics of an excellent drummer are very well transcribed. By the way, I'm a fan of old New Orleans funk (even if there's no direct link to the music I'm making) and this Retro funk bank is quite in the mood. It's quite surprising how easily you can use it in different genre (trip-hop, moody electro pop, folktronica...), specially that you can edit the drums loops with ease. I used the loops only in Native Instruments (Studio Drummer, Abbey Road and Battery 4) and didn't encountered any incompatibility problem so far (notes, velocity... etc.). Perfect midi drum loop bank for me ! Don't search
great usable funk grooves I am very happy with the retro funk MIDI drum loops package. Lots of good grooves that are in the pocket.
Big Fan The retro funk and New Orleans packs are perfect for players looking for Meters and James Brown influenced rhythms. The variety of rhythms is great and I’ve really enjoyed writing and practicing with them. Well worth it!
Great funk drums They were perfect!
Retro Funk MIDI Drum Loops It's OK so far
Great quality and straightforward to use Very happy with the MIDI drum loops. I t was easy to copy them into Addictive Drums 2 and they were available there straight away. Sounding good too.
Retro Funk MIDI drum loops Has been good so far, I use it in MT Power Drummer and Reaper
VFM A lot of really useful material, using EZ Drummer 2 very good value for money.
they easy to use and they easy to use and great grooves
great beats these are easy to work with I use superior drummer and beat buddy to record drums on the fly. www.nathanclay.net
Retro Funk Great! I usally write Rock music, but bought these to give me a little more choices to think outside of the box. I love them. I have not been disappointed by any of the groovemonkee packs.
Great Grooves Use them almost every day to practice. Drop them right in AD2, change kit and tempo to feel. Thank you
groove monkey retro funk I haven't got the the time to work exstensivrly with retro funk but so far it's more than OK!
Wow Can't stop jamming tunes to the retro funk midi drum pack on my beatbuddy / infinity looper set up.. it's got everything for one man jams...
Just a little more Got the retro funk pack. I like it, but wish there was more variation in the patterns.
Always great. Groove Monkee. Easy to download and install. Easy to use. Plenty of selection. Professional. Sounds great and natural. And affordable. Can't think of anything better.
Retro Funk MIDI Drum Loops Great MIDI set!
Great midi drums, nagyon jó Ár érték arányban nagyon jó. Csak ajánlani tudom.
Retro Funk Perfect for my needs. Good variety of grooves, never overbearing
retro funk Good stuff
Retro Funk Loops I received the download with no issues at all. All the loops loaded into my Superior Drummer 2 with no problem at all and nothing to configure! Easy Piece of Cake! The sound quality is great, and the rhythmic feel works really well in my tunes! Excellent value for the price! THANK YOU!
Retro Funk MIDI Drum Loops Wonderful loops. Very well made and perfectly suitable for EZdrummer 2
Retro Funk MIDI Drum Loops! Da bomb! ... now I can get my James Brown Groove on!
Great Nice set of loops. Great feel. Cheers!
Retro Funk Like all GM loops, these are well organized, organic sounding and useful.
Everything perfect... Thank you Everything perfect... Thank you
Professional drumbeats and so easy Professional drumbeats and so easy to use
retro funk drums Excellent collection, got a lovely live feel to them. Sound great in EZdtummer using the 'pop kit' Highly recommended :sunglasses:
Great! Great product! Very useful to have great drum tracks when I am practicing on my Bass, or guitar, & or keyboard. Works nicely in Ezdrummer & Addictive drums 2.
funky and usefull usefull and good value
Retro Funk This was the missing piece for my latest song. I have 17 Groove Monkee sets and I have used every one of them. They are a great buy IMHO.
Groove Monkee for Session Drummer/Sonar Great patterns, and a wide selection of patterns, all at a great price.
New Beats Since BB rarely puts out beats that I like, I found Groove Monkee and they sound amazing! I've purchased two different grooves from them. The only complaint is they only have verse and chorus beats per track. They do work flawlessly with my BB pedal and Im glad I found more beats besides what BB provides.
Boss Beats and Bass Have purchased three of the the drum loop packages. All have been of highest quality. The loops are great for adding to existing projects, or firing a wave of inspiration while composing.
Great Funk Loops! I love funk and these GrooveMonkee drum loops let me make music easily! Very musical loops and natural playing!
Retro Funk drum beats for BeatBuddy Excellent, very authentic, non-quantized drum beats which sound just perfect! Highly recommended!! I can also whole-heartedly recommend the JazzBuddy and Big Easy drum beats for similar reasons.
Retro funk midi Great package needed some real feel grooves for a project I was working on. Now can you please expand the bass midi libraries.
Retro Funk Drums Excellent pack. Very funky grooves and nice complement of fills and intros.
Very useful grooves, great value. I'm using these grooves with BFD3, and so far I definitely feel like I got my money's worth. My only suggestion for future libraries is the naming conventions; I like when my drum loops include information like "HH 16ths" to indicate notable features of the groove, rather than just a vague name like "116 Say It A", "116 Say It Fill" etc.
Retro Funk Midi Drum Loops excellent - maybe more straight grooves needed
Excellent loops Excellent, human loops. Works flawlessly with Addictive Drums in Studio One.
Retro Funk Great work again.... Thanks Team Monkey
Retro Funk Fine loops at a good price. I’d have given them five stars, but I use Logic as my recording program, and dragging and dropping the loops directly into the Logic Loop browser does not work, which means I have to import the loops one at a time,which can be a time consuming PITA. Not sure why this is an issue.
My go to loops My Music projects always tend to start life in the DAW by pulling in some groove monkee loops. I play blues rock, but i generally find the groove i’m looking for in the retro funk pack. What can i say, i love funky drums. And this pack tends to give my music a much nicer feel, a bit of a twist from straight ahead rock grooves. hopefully there will be a retro-funk 2 on the way before too long.
Another great release I use these grooves for practice all the time.
Awesome Grooves!!! These Funk Grooves were just what I was looking for. They are not overly done (overplayed), but are just very useable funk grooves. Very impressed!!!
Retro Funk I love these! Plenty of funk mojo. Love the after the beat snare on some of these. These are very specific yet versatile. Love 'em.
Got the groove Nice stuff. I write songs. This gives me a real nice groove. Lots of variations. I use REAPER and Steve Slate Drums. Jimmy https://soundcloud.com/subbourbon
Really great, my favorite of all libraries !!!! I don’t write a lot of funk, but have used a lot of groves from this library. It works great with EZDrummer 2.
Gives my music a lot of extra *FUNK* Great grooves that feel natural, but above all,… verry funky!
This is the real thing Powerful, groovy, rough! Exactly what I was looking for. Works perfect with both EZD2 and AD2. Very recommendable!
Sweet 70's groove! No faking the funk with these loops! Even BFD Eco, these were fairly easy to work with!
Retro Funk Midi drum loops Great product, heaps and heaps of grooves and fills with a great live feel. Really inspiring. Just drag em into EZ Drummer 2, they sound awesome with all the EZ drummer kits.
Good reference selection Gives you perfect JB start!
Niceee Nice groove!
Excellent product Great funk loops. Decent length and highly usable. Recommended.
Very well organized, and funky I love how Groove Monkee grooves come in so many formats...and are neatly arranged into folders. (Note: I use a Word macro to rename all the files based on their folder structure so I can drop them all in the same directory...this is just a personal preference. Unless you have as many packs as I do, this is not necessary.) Retro Funk is no exception...everything is neatly arranged in folders and subfolders that make sense. As for the beats...I'm not too far into trying out the grooves, but from what I've heard so far...they are funky!
Madchester groove machine I was looking for drums that would give me that late 80's Manchester sound of bands like the Charlatans and Stone Roses. I'm mad for it, me.
Funktastic! Very tasty grooves. Easy to build songs and find good fills. Great set up. This is my favourite pack so far.
tight midi grooves. nice tight midi grooves. easy to drop in and tweak to taste
Just what I was looking for These work well with the rock & blues sets to add those little "ghost feels" that a real drummer like myself places in between the grooves.... Usable at a wide tempo range without sounding choked or "funny". Another winner IMHO from GM!
Very cool grooves. Never could find a funky drummer to play with in a band. Now at least I have one in my studio!
Great beats! Very useful. Love having these on hand...
Your drum collection isn't complete without Groove Monkee Seriously good grooves. Other grooves are very mechanical sounding and not very natural.. When i heard the grooves made by Groove Monkee i just had to purchase them. I bought the complete bundle. Worth every penny!
High quality funk grooves I own lot of Groove Monkee drum midi loops, none of them have been a disappointment. Retro Funk MIDI Drum Loops is no exception. Really good and usable funk grooves. Worth of every penny. Highly recommended.
Retro Funk I have to say that this collection of midi loops is exactly what I wanted. I use ez drummer funk masters expansion pack, so I have the drum kits of both of James Brown's drummers (which is the ultimate) and the Retro Funk midi loops really groove.
Excellent product and great value for money If you're into the Amen loop and all the rest then this is perfect. The material is really well played, great value for money, and the editability of MIDI make this a real winner. Highly recommended.
Really Funky!!! High quality and very easy to use!!!
It is Retro,Funk and MIDI I love groovemonkee MIDI loops, because I always immagine that I have a monkey drummer behind me, and it is fun.While I’m sitting alone with my computer in a rural Hungarian village, having that feeling is priceless! Even more when the monkey playing the “Retro Funk Midi Drum Loops”. James Brown is on holliday with me!
review of Retro Funk MIDI Drum Loops oooohhhhh soooooo funky!! I dare you to sit still while putting these grooves on your tracks.
Awesome Drum Playing Here.. Am very pleased with the drum loops here, they will be most inspiring. Would have liked an easier install for EZD2 and AD2, as I use both of those. Always happy with GrooveMonkee though!
Awesome!! Very Flexible and usable : )
slum dunk I've always been happy to use Groove Monkee patterns, and Retro Funk maintains the high quality low cost tradition. Groove Monkee beats always integrate easily into my Cubase/Nuendo projects via EZ Drummer 2 and Superior Drummer. Examples can heard at jamiehaynes.com
It's retro. It's funky. Need I say more? Well, yeah. It also merits five stars. :-)
