Good service, good products!
Love the tight grooves
Loads of goodies in this! Perfect if you're having a bit of writers block and need some inspiration! A bargain.
Love the amount of content. Most of it not exactly my taste however I'm still glad I purchased it.
I like the multiple choices for Fills, Intros, and outros.
I'm going to purchase the Ballads Pack next. (I see they're on sale now, so now's the time)
Would definitely recommend it to anyone needing drum loops.
Good value for money, high quality midi files. Especially pleased they are fully compatible with Ezdrummer 2. Very helpful instructions and videos making it a breeze to install. Haven't needed any support from GM as of yet but feel like it would be good considering the followup email after purchase.
A few excellent grooves, a
A few excellent grooves, a few good ones, and lots of mediocre ones. Seamless integration with SSD5. Would like to see an installation filter so I don't have to install styles or time signatures I'm never going to use.
It has everything I need
It has everything I need to make great drum beats!
Although pleased with the drum samples, I had been kind of disappointed with the number and variety of MIDI tracks I was getting from a certain popular source. Expensive, too. Wish I’d discovered GM sooner. Now I have a great variety from four on the floor to odd prog signatures, for about the same cost as one of those other MIDI packs.
A lot of grooves. Haven’t had a chance to delve deep. But so far looks good
I'm really liking this combo
I'm really liking this combo pack.
Easy to use. Drop them in the track and rock on! Lots of patterns and fills. If you're considering a drum machine, do this instead -- you'll enjoy it more.
Combo 1 - Rock MIDI Pack
These loops groooove! Love them!
Really well recorded, great range of grooves
Recommend. Never found a bad Groove Monkee pack yet
It's good for all songwriters
The product enhances my idea when create songs. The drum maps which compatible to many drum software synthesizer are also very useful.
Really usable drums
Tired of busy drum patterns finally found the best colection of well played drums for my songwriting.
Seriously Solid Beats
Purchased most of the metal/rock packs and they have saved me months in work and given me a freedom to just write and not worry about messing about for weeks with Drum Beats.. I just drop them into "Big Steve" (SSD5) and it's pretty much all done (apart from a few tweaks). Pure Genius.
Very good service, thank you.
Awesome set of grooves for songwriting. I use flawlessly with Superior Drummer 3.
Thanks for an incredible bundle at an affordable price!
Really like these grooves. I use them with EZdrummer to find the patterns I need.
Love this pack. Groove Monkee is a great company who were kind enough to sponsor Home Studio Trainer. Thanks for your support and for the great products. I will be buying more in the future
I got a great deal on the Combo 1 - Rock MIDI Pack x 1 and the Combo 2 - Heavy MIDI Pack x 1. There are thousands of loops that do work in the EZdrummer 2. I love it!
Adds a whole new level to structuring songs.
A good set of rock grooves. Works wells with session drummer. A couple of the grooves do sound exactly the same. If there's a difference it is very subtle. It is difficult to search for the groove you want. Some are labeled as a "song" other files are labeled as verse, chorus, etc. But overall pretty good,
Exactly what I was looking for
I ordered the Combo 1 - Rock MIDI Pack. I use it to set up grooves for songwriting and demos. Much more musical than playing to a click track!
The MIDI files are not quantized and don't sound canned. Highly recommended!
Good but not great.
I thought these were good midi drum loops. A little underplayed and safe in my opinion, but they are easily tweaked.
Midi grooves awesome
I love these midi loops are using with ez drummer Superior drummer 3 And addictive drummer 2
I think these are good
I think these are good would be nice if they would partner with someone else that makes drums that does not have all the midi files and come out with a package that would be cool
Combo1 Rock Midi Pack
Love it, works great in Addictive Drums 2!
Lots of great stuff in the rock combo pack. Highly useful with a multitude of applications.
That's what I want. I'm happy with my purchase
A collection of straight rock grooves is hard to find that´s why I really like this collection of just "ordinary" grooves which for normal songwriting a great .
They're awesome , Easy to
They're awesome , Easy to install .
I use Cubase 8.5 with a PC.
Very happy with my purchase
Good products, great support
Great selection of loops. Fits my preference for less complicate, more straightforward loops. Very usable. Complexity of fills is also well balanced with grooves. Excellent and friendly support.
Very powerfull midi groove and songs package for bfd3 which I use
Very cool and easy to use
Rock licks rock!
Very usable material. Rock midi bass tracks to complement rock drums helps to make track building easy.
Very Good Vibrations ! : )
With EZdrummer and BFD3, the "Groove Monkey Rock Pack" gives to me very good vibrations...
Great grooves, very realistic sounding drum, and... the files are well organised !
I bought it during Sales and I'm really happy with it. : )
Makes my job easier
I'm not a drummer so having these patterns at my disposal is a Godsend. Great patterns. Will order more in the future!
Combo 1 - Rock MIDI Pack
Very pleased with purchase. Bought to use with NI studio drummer which has poor MIDI pattern organisation, especially when it comes to fills, which we all know are a pain to program realistically. These loops are arranged logically, with a large amount of fills that sound human ( because they are ) and that are well played. I wish I had bought them months ago.
Great big selection
Nice big selection and wide range of loops. I use it with EZDrummer 2, and the only niggle is that EZD2 is not good at discerning what is "fill" sections and what is "regular" grooves, which makes it not ideal for the song builder function, unfortunately. I suspect the problem lies with EZDrummer 2 and how it searches loops. Otherwise, I hope it's something Groovemonkee will look into.
Overall I'm satisfied with the purchase.

Rock Midi Pack
Love the grooves here. They are a great addition to my EZDrummer collection!
groovemonkee is a great product and for the rite $$
Very happy with the groovemonkee beats. I use ezdrummer 2 and the groovemonkee midi loads and plays perfect!
groovemonkee is a good monkey!
Love the samples. Use it with Superior drummer. Next to the samples from Toon Track this is the next best option. Some complain the recording are loose but in the "real world" they should be with a human drummer. Works great for me.
Highly useable and organic sounding loops. Simple and effective. Was hoping for an old "alternative" section from a demo pack I had. Wasn't included, but otherwise great loops
Best Beats for Beatbuddy!
Between the Rock midi Combo Pack and the Country 2 pack for have found all the beats needed for 2-4 hour gigs with my Acoustic Roots Americana Band or Duo. Lots of oprtions, great sounding, tasteful fills - gigable beats! Groove Monkee beats and the Beatbuddy drum-machine-in-a-pedal are a match made in Heaven!
I am so happy I purchased these MIDI files. I'm a pro bass player, and these grooves are solid. These are all very useable The variations of each rhythm progresses gradually from very basic to complex. I look forward to purchasing more.
Combo 1 - Rock MIDI Pack
Great packet. I use it a lot.
I'm really enjoying my Groovemonkee midi loops. They are so full of life and usable for just about any purpose. Great work guys! Keep on rockin' !!!
Groove Monkee Is Simply The Best!
The only thing better than the Groove Monkee's MIDI Drums Loops is their wonderful customer service. Groove Monkee MIDI Drum Loops have a great feel and their customer service makes you feel great too!
Works great with BeatBuddy
I bought the Rock combo pack and it works great with the BeatBuddy pedal.
Navigate to the BeatBuddy pedal folder and just up load what you want to the BeatBuddy manager program.
Everything is mapped out perfect.
Review „Combo 1 - Rock Midi Pack"
Well i’ve bought me this stuff to have a quick result in producing Drums with the Steven Slate Drums 4. Well what more can i say, but it’s brilliant midi files on a high quality level. I’ve checked a lot of other stuff from diverse Musicians and companies, but seriously there was nothing on the same level as Groove Monkee are. Well I meant i didn’t found something which was common to this. I’m really sure about the fact, that I’ll buy the other Rock, Pop and Metal Stuff too. Cheers Koffax
Fantastic extension to EZDrummer2
I’m a songwriter with zero drumming talent so I’m always on the lookout for easy ways to increase my writing repertoire. Recently I’ve been using EZDrummer2 and was very happy to discover GrooveMonkee Midi packs. They work perfectly with EZDrummer and this pack in particular is a great addition to my songwriting palette.
I got the Punk collection too so be sure to check that out if that’s your thing!
Great Drum Grooves
i'm using the Groove Monkey rock pack with Addictive Drums. Couldn't be happier with the section. Great variety and probably even better than the AD bests themselves. Highly recommended.
Best "Real" Unquantized MIDI Grooves
Personally I aim for as real a "feel" for a piece as possible. All the grooves I have from Groove Monkey form an excellent base from which to work with for very realistic sounding drum accompaniments. The fact these are unquantified gives a distinctly human feel that can't be easily replicated. I love the results and could not recommend these grooves more highly, they deliver exactly what I want, and with style.
Thank you very much everything
Thank you very much everything works great, very beautiful rhythms
Great grooves, lots of options and well organised.
Great solid drumming
These drumparts come handy when you just want to build a solid groove that does not distract from your song idea. Really just solid drumming, in time, never tired, never overambitious. :)
Easy to use. I´ll check out the other packs as well.
I don't know where to begin. I purchased the Combo 1-Rock MIDI Pack. There are so many various patterns that are so well done, the challenge now is trying to decide on what to use. I love the fact that the patterns are not quantized but instead have a fluid feel to them. I've used other patterns before and they sound so robotic. That is not the case here. There are plenty of intros outros and fills as well. These patterns are priced right and are well worth the money.
Fantastically Rocking Grooves
I don't know why I waited so long to get these from Groove Monkey - it is a truly superb collection of unquantized grooves, fills, song structures.
Honestly, I've used MIDI grooves and templates from all sorts, and these really are great collections.
An absolute must have for any songwriter/producer.
Great loops in all formats what I need.
I love this stuff
This groove pack is exactly what I was looking for. It works with both my DAW and plugins and since it's midi I can alter it to suite my needs. Browsing through all these presets jogs my imagination into creating my own rhythm.
