Excellent! Just what I have been looking for! Perfect for any Prog-Metal or Fusion project. A great collection of odd timing and unusual patterns. Lots of variations and fills all perfectly executed. Very well organized, and was easy to install into Addictive Drums 2. Will keep me busy for a while! Thanks Groovemonkee! I'll be coming back for more!
Awesome midi pack. I can easily get an awesome groove going to do some creative writing and practice with different time signatures or use in a final mix. The variety of this pack is great and the fills are perfect. You can adjust the beats in your DAW to fit your song or riff but the fills are awesome. This pac has helped so much in improving my writing in crazy time signatures. Great!
the grooves are great support is great all great
Great for odd time signatures Includes a good selection of odd time signatures with variations. I have the Progressive expansion pack for ezdrummer and this has more samples than the expansion. Also, works great with ezdrummer!
I love it I guys and girls at groovemonkey. The loop are so good, I love them a lot. I like the way they are sorted and the sound is perfect. I use Kontackt as my main sequenzer in studio One DAW. For the Groovemonkey loops, I use Addictive Drum as the MIDI mapping. I will get some more of your midi loops for sure. -Robert
Fun midi Fun midi grooves to jam to
Excellent drum loops Excellent drum loops
great pack This pack is a must-have for the sheer number of time signatures covered alone. I'm especially happy with the 3/4 grooves; I mostly use Toontrack products and they don't offer much in the way of straight 3/4 drum MIDI.
Groove Monkee in Superior Drummer 3: Easy! I bought the Progressive and World Beats largely because I was looking for 5/4 drum tracks that weren't all about Metal. As it turned out, I didn't use the 5/4 from Groove Monkee (I ended up making my own from scratch) BUT I don't at all regret my purchase. I use Superior Drummer 3 in Logic Pro X and getting the Groove Monkee grooves into Superior Drummer was as easy as pie. I like the grooves and will certainly be using some of them in later projects.
just great for my needs Bought "Progressive" pack together with "Hi-Octane" and "Doom" for my home-recording solo project. The project is a mixture of doom/sludge/stoner with some prog influences and unconventional time signatures. All of them ended up being the perfect deal for my needs.
great work as always thank great work as always thank you
Works well with Studio Drummer I've been looking for a drum loop library that would work with Studio Drummer and provide me with a bunch of odd grooves. Found these and I am very pleased, easy to work with and sound very well. Thanks a lot! Gillian
Versatile!! High quality and versatility! Easy to get and upload, clear instructions. I use Studio Drummer, I needed odd time loops and these are perfect!
Progressive MIDI Drum Loops The samples are really good. If you are looking for progressive or heavy metal drum sampling loops with various odd time signatures, you will love this pack. Great drumming too!
Great! Exactly what it Promises. This pack is perfect for a composer to layout the basis for your prog tracks. Everything superbly organized and tagged. Extremely user friendly and with a realism as close as you can get to the drummer.
Good quality and great price Tried those with SSD5 on GarageBand and they worked fine. Good variety on loops and great price for what you're getting. Add sections like intro/verse/bridge/chorus etc. and you'll hit 5 stars!
Great loops for my Adictive drums Great midi for drums, wish there was more 4/4
Great stuff! Grooves are very usable! I like it!
9/8 Groove Very helpful...
Progressive MIDI Drum Loops These midi drum loops are awesome!
Good Good. Only thing I noticed is that the drumming intensity is not as forceful as the ssd4 drumming. It is noticeable if I intertwine the two drum patterns on the same instrument track, the groovemonkee loops sound lesser, to the point where I have to put the groove monkey loops on a different instrument track, and raise the volume until it matches the ssd4 levels. It is a mild pain, as then I have to make new routings for a whole new drum kit, which I am not inclined to do (but which I did regardless for the tune, as the loop was what I needed).
Drum loops Use these drum loops with reaper daw and addictive drums 2. Works and sounds great with this combination :+1:
Fantastic Beats and Where To Find Them (here!) Excellent and versatile beats. Unlike some others I've purchased from Groove Monkee, these ones are more 'chopped up' into 1 or two bars so you can assemble them yourself with fills separate too to slot in wherever you like. The other midi drum samples here are usually in a 'song format' with around 4 examples of intro, verse, pre-chorus, chorus, outro etc plus fills so this was a different structure. They come in a large variety of time signatures from 3/4 all the way through to 9/9, 7/4 etc so ideal for multiple genres, not just prog.
groove monkey good and varied midifiles. easy to use
Great loops Very versatile and huge variety
Amazing! Already greatly recorded almost no EQ or compression needed realistic sounding easy to use you are almost stealing them at this price LOL
Quality midi files Well worth the money. Really high quality!
Excellent Drum Loops The GrooveMonkee Progressive drum loops are simply brilliant. I use them to embellish my tracks
Progressive Drum Loops Expertly performed 'prog' drumming for wide array of compositional expression.
Vert nice Vert nice
Great feel Lots of interesting grooves, all great feel, very human, fun to jam and compose with.
Progressive MIDI Pack I gave Groove Monkee a try after a searching through many different companies that provide midi packs. I'm glad I did. These collections (bought Prog and Metal packs) are really great. Lots of different beats and variations. I find these are better than the packs that actually come with drum software. I'm doing very little editing as the beats sound so natural, just adding in fills (of which there is a HUGE selection of killer fills). I highly recommend buying these packs if your looking for midi drums. They are so well played, this will last you for years.
Best bang for the buck Best bang for the buck!!!
Awesome!!! Just unbelievably good. These drum files are easy to use and make the creative process smoother.
Progressive Midi Drum loops Absolutely outstanding collection of Prog drum loops that works seamlessly with EZ Drummer. I used it in this composition - https://soundcloud.com/user-836903146/its-like-im-living-in-a-cyclone
Progressive Drum Loops So far so good. The odd time signatures are correctly counted and are actually inspiring and usable, unlike some midi drum files I have purchased in the past from other 3rd party producers. I hope some day Groove Monkey makes a a Progressive Metal Set.
Top Time with Progressive Midi Grooves These are really cool, great feels. I really love this Pack
Excellent rhythm sections I could never write progressive rock because of drum track, now I have and I love it
Progressive Midi Drum loops If you like prog this pack is a no-brainer. Works seamlessly with EZ drummer and provides awesome proggy greatness.
Top notch beats Very impressive package, absolutely unlimited amount of ideas from all the fantastic stuff. If you can't find something great in this pack learn the flute.
Great Progressive MIDI Drum Loops! Totally usable on actual projects. Sound great and professional!
Cool Stuff Very cool and unique grooves I wouldn't have found anywhere else, lots of fun to play over
These loops rock I bought the progressive loops pack and so far they work great fro my metal tracks
Excellent product My Groove Monkey Progressive Drums purchase has been well worth the money. High quality midi samples that intergrate perfectly into my favorite sampler.
progressive Sound great - Just got to learn how to play over them now
Progressive MIDI Drums is outstanding I needed to create some mixed meter loops for a piece I am working on and was having trouble finding anything good in 3/4 6/8. This pack is JAMMED full of great MIDI loops that work perfectly with Kontact. I found the web site and the ordering process easy to straight forward.
Tasteful and Fitting; Big Bang for the Buck Typically, I'm not into progressive music, but these loops have been absolutely perfect for a couple projects I'm working on right now. The loops are helping me both add flavor to my music while helping me learn and understand progressive drumming and timing. They also work seamlessly with my Addictive Drums 2 VSTi. The loops are well-organized and have a robust diversity in timings and variations. While I do enjoy programming my own drum loops, you really cannot replace a human drummer and these loops are proof that the human element can make all the difference in the overall musical quality. Highly recommended! Great addition to my growing MIDI loop library.
Complex Time Signatures Really impressed with the selection of patterns, loads of examples of different time signatures that work equally well with both EZDrummer & MTPowerDrumKit...
Great value. Easy to load. Simple to use. Was impressed with what you get. Use superior drummer and this complements my midi grooves library for fills. Best are the GM fills. Able to mix/cut easily, adjust as needed. Very happy.
Progressive Drum Loops are great!!!! I thoroughly enjoy using these loops. The variety is good and they are easy to use with Superior Drummer. They also work seamlessly with other loops. The video showing how to load these loops is great and a time saver. I liked these so much I bought another package a few days later! You cant go wrong with these!
Progressive MIDI Loops I purchased this pack for a track that needed some loops in 5/4 and they worked perfectly for the groove i was looking for. Thanks so much!!
Progressive MIDI Drum Loops I really appreciate and recommend this bundle.
Progressive rockstar drumming Great beat, natural playing with subtle dinamic, nicely organisé in different time signature
progressive drum loops rock!! I had bought progressive drum loops as was so amazed with the quality of the grooves, didn't miss my drummer who couldn't record due to an injury. In fact he wanted to buys his own pack now ! You guys have a great product!
That's what you look for, when you make progressive rock The rhythms contained are those needed, when it goes a bit in the proggy direction. They fit perfectly for my ACID Pro DAW. Unfortunately some of the grooves seem to be louder than others, so, if you use several grooves in one song, you have to take care of the different sound levels.
Excellent MIDI Files All the best formats, great collection of "Beats-per-minute" options and excellent performances. Great tool for songwriting and production.
Having a blast Love this midi loop package, its a great addition to all of my other midi loops. Having a blast with them, much enjoyed.
Super produit Midi loop super géniaux ,j utilise tout les produits Groovmonkey avec addictive drums facile a mettre en place et qui sonne du feu de dieu
Really Good I'm not a drummer, and I really only understand 4/4 time. These loops are awesome and help me develop new odd time signature stuff because I can see how to construct more than just 4/4. I've used the 5/4 loops to create some jagged rhythms. Check out my songs at https://soundcloud.com/st-cosmas I used Groove Monkee loops on almost every track.
GrooveMonkee loops MUY BUENO!!! Excellent midi loops, covers a lot of ground for inspiration, great price! I highly recommend them!
Nice modern grooves perfect for what I play! https://soundcloud.com/a-thyn-noysman
Good value, and awesome playing. I’ve purchased the Progressive bundle and I am very pleased with the drumming. It sounds natural, and is very versatile and well played. Good Job.
Cant go wrong for this price. Some very solid grooves in this bundle
Oustanding MIDI Loops, Customer Service is EXCELLENT! I downloaded the free midi loops. I'm fairly new to midi drums and I was having problems figuring out how to use the new midi files. I called customer service and the owner took me step by step through the process until we figured out how to access the new midi files in Superior Drummer. I for one appreciate the personal time taken on News Years Eve he took to assist me in finding a quick solution. Thanks brother :) Happy New Years!
Great material Time signature in different meters 8/8 7/8 etc... Playable directly with EZDrummer and even Sibelius scores are importing those loops perfectly, at the right pitch, with no transposition.
Great loops for great price I was in need of some odd time 6/4 loops for a Christmas project and couldn't find what I needed anywhere till I found this. Awesome is the word, it was perfect for what I was trying to do. You can hear the finished project here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5T4lmIRCps
Progressive Midi Good selection of beats and fills.This pack has been useful for some odd time stuff I've been working on.So far so good.
Progressive MIDI Drum Loops Useful in the home studio recommend
Awesome drum patterns I needed some inspiration on some 7/8 drum patterns and this library hit the spot. Thank you GrooveMonkee.
prog loop simply excellent, work perfectly with my EZ drummer 2
Progressive Loops Works great with EZ Drummer II as well as a pretty straight forward download. I especially dig the fills!
Great Loop I never buy any loop because I create myself, but your are very good loop. in while I ask you for a New Age Library, when you create …….
Progressive MIDI This is a selection of unusual beats in less common time signatures, (there are some grooves in 4/4, 3/4 and 6/8 as well). There are a lot of grooves- 1,900 which makes it better value for money than other competitors' MIDI packs.
Great Palette Having a sizable library of Groovemonkey loops really offers a great palette for creative sessions. It has helped my workflow in times when I need a little inspiration. Highly recommend this company, for sure.
Excellent !! I will definitely buy some other packages
The definition of progress I purchased the progressive loops midi pack for addition to my Superior Drummer 2 library. I use Presonus Studio One 2 Pro and they are a fantastic addition that open creative avenues for many of my pieces. Great loops!
Great! Very "exoctic" measures, but still groving and sounding very natural
Very well done! I bought the Progressive Grooves. The beats and fills in the many different time signatures is very nice. So many to choose from in each category. These didn’t come in song format (intro, verse, chorus, bridge, etc..), but that’s not always necessary, especially for progressive grooves. The dynamics and feel translate well to my drum VI (SSD4), and their were zero issues with non quantized playing. I prefer non-quantization when played well, and these certainly are. I plan on buying a few more packs. Steve Steele Composer/Performer/Music Theory Instructor/Music Therapist
Perfect ! Perfect marriage of grooves with Addictive Drums 2 ! Great :-) Groove Monkee are the best !
Fantastic Great drum Loops that I am using with EZ drummer and Addictive drums. Also fantastic value for money.
Incredible versatile rhythms! I've been looking for 6/4 and 7/4 time signatures for a long time and came across the prog package. It's an incredible library of solid beats, lovely fills and the drums are played with depth and feeling. I've played around with velocity settings to get the perfect feel for each part of the track and that's all I needed to to. Find the loop(s) and get playing. Easy as pie! Downside is I should have bought the bundle worth this pack included as there is a 20% discount promotion. Recommend for all musicians struggling to find a real drummer!
amazing midi_rock_!!! I am a guitarist using reason... MIDI is the best for recording drums in my opinion... I believe I´ll make great music with this... I already have one song since I got this... thanks a lot...
Love the grooves Easy to install. Love the grooves. Really helpful when writing songs.
Progressive Heaven for EZD2!! I own a few of these GM MIDI packs, they work great with EZD2. If you are writing Metal, Progressive here is essential for adding variety. This is a huge volume, the mind boggles at the possibilities. If there is a minor gripe, it would be that some of the loops aren't as Heavy as I liked....but there is enough cool drum riffs to keep your song writing interesting.
Kicks butt! Easy to install, works seamlessly with EZDrummer (1 and 2) and the beats are off the hook!! What more could I ask for in a drum solution? Thanks!
Why wast time! These drumms can be molded to perfection with a real human feel.
