Ballad MIDI Drum Loops

Less Is More
Ballads are all about space and proper dynamics. We kept things relatively simple and less "busy" - with a lighter touch.

"Short and sweet" fills usually get the job done. Plus, the fills are tailored to the verse and chorus sections for easier song creation.

Best value for the money - clean with a human feel. All Groove Monkey products work perfectly with my SD3 & Addictive tracks.
Best ballad drum midi beats I've found yet and I've tried many. These are great.
Great ballad grooves, Will use it in the future for sure.
I didn't install well. Because I just can see a little beat no more than 10????,,
Excellent loops. More like this for acoustic groups.
The most professional sounding ballad grooves I have found. I don’t think anyone has as many quality grooves at this price.
I love this pack, it sounds like a real drummer. Will be buying all their packs in the near future.
1. The beats in Ballads all sound like hard rock to me. I was hoping there would be some simple, lighter examples. 2. The names aren’t helpful. Maybe it would help if the beats were named for a popular song they would work with. 3. Cakewalk used to have something called Session Drummer which categorized beats by musical genre: mambo, swing, calypso, etc. I would like to see something like this.
I’ve enjoyed using the midi sets so much that I wanted to share them with a friend and, seeing as I believe in paying for what I use, I purchased this duplicate set to gift to him. Thanks for your continuing support.
Dos kits que adequiri, até agora esse é meu favorito. Componho muita música com estilo clássico, e esse kit tem quase tudo que preciso.
Works excellant with Toontrack software.
Great midi drum tracks to get you rocking quicker and harder! The ballad set is really quality midi tracks. A must to song writing and doesn't break your budget!!
I love it!
Good MIDI loops, good vive, good groove. I like Groove Me!
my songwriting is helped so much more with my new drum loops. i love em
I like these midi drum tracks a lot. I've been using other recorded drum files, but they lack the editability and feel of these.
Ce sont les beats qui manquaient à ma collection pour pouvoir produire de bons enregistrements. Merci Groove Monkee
To me is the perfect tool to create your songs.
very happy with ballads ,great sound quality.THX
Can't wait to see some gospel grooves and wider selection of rnb, hip hop, etc. Great price range and very good grooves. Don't work without it. Thanks guys.
Liked the Demo song #1, have been talking to Russ about info on the midi files used on the Demo if he can any on his computer. It might generate more orders if you had a list of the midi files used on Demo songs to help inspire new users.
Another great pack from the team, thanks!!
One can put the drum midi together much easier
Amazing tools. All incredibly useful and useable
Groove Monkee midi files are an excellent source of inspiration for all types of music. These ballad based grooves are superb, they certainly beat spending a long time getting a starting point for a song.
Good set of softer beats
The ballad grooves where perfect for what we had to do. Our drummer couldn't make it, so we had to bring in virtual drums for our gig. We coupled them with Native Instruments Abbey roads 60s drummer and it worked so well, I'm not sure our drummer has a job anymore!
The midi file are really very well done...
Great midi-files. Highly recommend based on quality and value.
balads me gusta mucho grasias, lo uso en cubase 8 elements y es marabillozo
Alles top:+1: :muscle:
Very Useful Helps get ideas up and running quick, easy to tweak to lock up the band hits. Customer support is second to none!
Not high quality drum loops Not high quality drum loops - programming feels robotic.
Super drum loops Super drum loops
G.M.'s Ballad MIDI Drum Loops! AWESOME! Ballad MIDI Drum Loops turned out to be a great purchase for me. I'm not a pro song writer or musician, but they came in handy, for what i needed. I'm actually working on a Latin song at the moment, and I use EZ drummer 2 with GM midi Ballads, and a fellow musician friend of mine like what i was working on and asked me, who's song is that, and what drums did you use, I like that ballad style, i just smiled and grinned, and I told him about GM and what they sell, he called me about an hour ago, and told me that he just bought a program called addicted drums something like that, and he was gonna buy this pack, and some other ones that he liked. but the ballad midi pack was his favorite, so you're gonna love ballad midi, they are amazing, it's so good that my friend who has been playing drums for 15 years loved it and he's a rocker, and has toured with some big acts, and he loved the pack. So i value his opinion and this midi pack is super awesome it's bad ass. I highly recommend it, any of GM's midi packs this is a bad ass company who makes really good midi packs, and if you are a first time buyer, and work on ballad type music, this is the midi pack for you, I highly recommend it. I hope this little review help you out. Oh and by the way, Merry Christmas to the GM family and all shopper and buyer and Happy New Year too, take care and be safe and God bless you all.
Great quality Played by a “real drummer”, sounds like a real drummer !! Perfect for my use
Great Great drum loops as always .
MIDI drum loops I was struggling to find a Drum pattern within my DAW, Did a search ,and up came groovemonkey! fond what I was looking for. Good value! will use again.
ALWAYS SATISFIED! Excellent grooves! You can’t go wrong with Groove Monkee!
love all my Groove Monkey drums Im a song writer and these last drum, the ballads are great for what I do.thank you so much. Sincerely, Rick Govreau
Good loops Good loops
Great and very simple to Great and very simple to use with different programs
Straight to Jamming This is about as a good as it gets next to having a real drummer to play with. As a guitar player, I don't want to spend a lot of time programming the drums on my tracks. These midi patterns are huge for getting the most of your jam time at home. 10/10 for quality and ease of use. I will definitely be picking up other GM packs in the future
sounds great but having a little problem Great sounding tacks and very usable racks vs. others that are too complicated. Have a problem inserting them into studio one but hopefully will figure it out.
Great balance These patterns are so well done. The dynamics are correct and not over played.
3/4 Time Needed a nice 3/4 ballad midi drum file! GOT IT!
Ballad MIDI Drum Loops Good Quality and wide choice of patterns, fills, intro and outro. A new life for my tracks. Recommended!
Great Drummer’ Great product! Reasonably priced! And all loops are musical and useful. More than just a “beat”.
Buenisima coleccion para inspirarte Lo utilizo con Groove Agent, y no he tenido ningun problema con el GM, todos los instrumentos están en su sitio y puedo trabajar rápidamente con ellos. Recomiendo 100x100 las librerias de Groove Monkee
Nice Grooves Great price
Ballad Drum Loops I have a few of Groove Monkey loop bundles, they sound great are easy to use and versatile. What you get for the price is quite amazing
Simple Simple is harder than complex.
Perfect I am happy with my purchase, the loops are very quality and work well with my BeatBuddy. Thank you
Ballad drum loops Excellent set of loops. The bridges, fills and loops have plenty of variety and scope. I'm impressed by all the packs I have bought so far. (Great value as well)
Really Impressed !!!! Thank you!!!, i will be coming back very soon..keep me informed about any new PBF files....AB
Ballad Drum Loops In most cases I use these loops to generate ideas for my live drum tracks, however at times I do use the loops themselves in the final production. They are that good!!
Great sounding . Easy to Great sounding . Easy to use
Excellent patterns and great service One of the problems I’ve experienced as a singer songwriter who writes predominantly acoustic material, is that most MIDI drum loops (and drum loops in general) seem to be written for electronic compositions and sound unnatural in a more traditional song setting. However, I really like this collection. There are lots of variations to inspire and they sound natural in Reason using a basic (id8) player and its acoustic drum set up. I’m also impressed that I got an email a day or so after purchasing the loops to ask how I was getting on and to offer support if necessary. I will definitely purchase more from Groove Monkey.
Very nice The only problem is my singing. The drum loops are great.
Finally some good ballad drums I've got quite a few libraries that include supposed ballads but they're just way too busy. These hit the spot for what I was after.
Ballads that are good for ballads... Sadly, I've got a TON of MIDID drum loops and many of the ballads are crazy over played. I was in need of sparse ballad midi loops and came here and BINGO that's what I needed. Thx. I like the non-quantized real feel also.
Ballad grooves A nice collection of slow grooves for sure:+1::+1:
Great Drums! Awesome drum loops, really made my project, thank you...
Ballad midi drum loops Excellent product I highly recommended it
Ballad Three stars because there is little help as how to proceed. Granted you get videos to chose your preferred tool but it would be immensely helpful to be abe to audio each song without having to go into the folders. You end up fishing an fishing. Loops are good.
About as good as it gets. Top quality product. This will certainly be my "Go to" company for the future.
Quality useable midi The loops sound natural. You don't have to force them into a mold. Easy enough to edit. Great product.
amazing loops superb value for money loops. ive brought about 10 packs now happy customer 10/10 all good
Drum Freebie Pak - Very impressive! I liked this free midi software so much that I just had to buy more from you. I bought Ballads and Jazz Buddy. This is even better than Toontrack's (EZ Drummer 2) own software! I'd love to buy more from you.
Ballad MIDI Drum Loops After installing the Ballad loops and being quite pleased that I have them available for my AD2, Groove Agent 4, BFD2, Session Drummer 3 and Studio Instruments (I use Cakewalk by BandLab), Abbey Road '60s AND SSD5 (the freebie), I started grabbing patterns and fills. It didn't take long and suddenly I had my drum track arranged quite nicely and I started laughing at how easy and quickly it went. So being able to buy something that makes my workflow painless... nope it actually made it fun and saved me a lot of time. How can you beat (ooops drum pun) that! Thanks to Russ and the Groove Monkee crew! I'll be checking out more loop packs while the coffee is perfect! LOL
Perfect midi packs Perfect midi packs
Perfect for that love song! Did you write that love or longing song song? Then these midi loops are what you need!
Great beats and a great value The Ballad pack has all the tools you'll need to slow it down and put your heart into the groove. Great value and always a great price. Thx Groove Monkee again.
Loving it So far I am loving the packs I have purchased. And thankful to find some that are not all centered around rock or hip hop :) Country and Folk peeps use electronics too :) :):)
Ballad Midi Pack Ver useable !
Drum loops Hello, I ordered quite a few drum loop collections from Groove Monkey and are very happy with the quality of the loops for use with the BFD3 software. The choices are diverse and really aid in my musical creative process.
Just what I was looking for... Excellent sounds and did not have any issues to use with my software.
hammer drums amazing midi's
Great Loops! Have purchased several great loops from GM-never disappointed
first time buy this is my first time buy and experience using midi loops. it's great and easy to use.
Great edition Great editionWorks really good and SSD5 Also ez drummer and superior drummer a must have
GREAT DRUMS!! Works superb with EZ Drummer 2! Love them!
Excellent Realistic beats with fills and intros that aren’t needlessly complex. These loops are meant to support the rest of the live performance not dominate them.
Ballad mid drum grooves As usual, Groove monkee has delivered a solid and intresting grooves library. Thanks
Great product! Excellent product(s). Sound good, easy to use and well organized. For non-drummers, the loops really simplify the process of creating backing tracks!
Nice product I purchased 3 packs: big easy，ballad , Jazz buddy. They are easy to use , compatible with most popular drum VSTs. Great sound in my project. But I found that Jazz buddy is a little bit limited in style choices, need to add more stuffs like basic brush sweep for cool jazz ballad, more variation for medium swing.
GM Drum Midi Files I love GMs loops and midi files. They are such a refreshing change, wonderfully musical. Thank you.
Perfect! Good value for money!
Easy to used, sound great! Easy to used, sound great!
I'm no Drummer I used 2 sets of grooves in first 2 days. I can program drums which groove but why bother. This is way better.
Great midi loops! These are the best commercial midi loops I’ve used ever! Great variety and human-ness in all of the loops. I love and use the Jazz loops in my studio work! Bravo
Very Usable Beats Not over-embellished. Good selection. Haven't used them extensively yet but so far so good.
Great stuff Great sounding drum loops.
Ballad midi Very good product. Thank you
great loops, well organised I've been looking for a flexible set of loops like this for a while and there's loads of alternatives to get the feel you want
