I needed some swampy, energetic beats for a project I'm working on. I checked in with my friends at Groove Monkey and found the Big Easy beat package. These are just what I was looking for to jumpstart the rhythm section. Easy to use and import, scalable, fully adaptable and editable midi files. Thanks so much, Groove Monkey!
i really love adding these loops to my collection. Ive only listened to them through my Steven Slate Drums ,been too busy to do any recording yet with all the holidays and extra work with my band. But after the New Year I will get back to writing and Ive already got some great ideas of how to include this style with my style of Blues and Rock. Thank you so much Groove Monkee!!!

Fresh Beats I look for inspiration everywhere to spark an idea. So I was delighted to find Groove Monkee. I have now purchased most if not all of their rock midi beat packages and there is all kinds of fresh material, in wide variety of tempos, dynamics, and feels to help start a song. I use them in Addictive Drums 2 and SSD5. Very easy to import and quick to get going. As long as they keep creating, I will keep buying.
Quality and service Excellent products and excellent customer service. In addition to the quality of their loops, they have loyal customers. Highly recommended.

One of the better midi One of the better midi drum grooves on the market.
I like the concept of I like the concept of what you offer, but I seems to have an issue with its application. When I drag the drum sample to my Logic worksheet, it doesn’t convert to the tempo (BPM) of the worksheet. Work in progress.
Big Easy Groove Monkee's "Big Easy" drum tracks are perfect for rootsy New Orleans funk, blues and R&B. Great playing, and a great feel with several variations for each style. Best of all, they work perfectly with Superior Drummer 3 and EZDrummer 2!
Unexpected grooves Big Easy is chock a block with greasy, funky and musical choices. A pure pleasure and inspiring material
BLUES V2 AND BIG EASY I LOVE THE VERSATILITY OF YOUR LOOPS. THE WAY THEY ARE FORMATTED MAKES PUTTING IDEAS TOGETHER FLOW EASILY. I'VE BEEN USING GROOVE MONKEY LOPS FOR OVER 15 YEARS. HELPS ME SHOW MY DRUMMERS HOW TO PLAY WHAT IS IN MY HEAD LOL
Big Easy MIDI Drum Loops These loops groove and they draw out of drum track great human feeling!
Excellent Good grooves and editing possibilities
good sounds good sounds
Best yet Have many GM packs - like them all. But this one is great! Looking fwd to Big Easy 2.
Nice Grooves These are both really groovy and inspirational. A must have, if you like that Big Easy rhythms
The Big Easy is aptly named Nice pack, quite happy with it. Good variety of styles with usable variations. Easy to use with Abbey Road 50s Drumset. My first Groove Monkey purchase, plan to get more soon. Great value.
Big Easy As always, these are very nice and useful grooves laid out in an organized fashion. Work well to provide a little variety.
Big easy I use these loops to write songs and are very useful.
Great company....great products Love Groove Monkee and thank them for sponsoring Johnny Geib and Home Studio Trainer live-streams
Natural feel Big Easy drum loops have a live drummer feel, good resource for Americana
Rock Bass MIDI Divided into formats for major drum synths. (Addictive Drums 2 for me). I would highly recommend these midi grooves. Very useable and editable.
Another great loop set Big Easy is another great loop set to add to my Groove Monkee collection. After many years, I have nearly all of them.
Great Loops, Faff To Install Really like most of the the loops, been looking for some swampy grooves for ages. I use a few pieces of drum software (BFD, AD2, and Kontakt), so getting the right loops in the right folders was a bit of a pain but worth it.
Excellent - as Always Superb patterns as ever from GM. They are 'live', with excellent variations and fills. So many patterns - yet nothing off-the-wall and useless. I particularly like how well they work with Addictive Drums: an instant expansion of available patterns to test out. And so ridiculously cheap for what you're getting. All Thanks to GM as ever.
Nice variety, easy to install, I'm happy! The Big Easy MIDI Drum Loops pack came with a good variety of realistic live drummer rhythms which I was able to immediately put to use. The loops were easy to download and install -- I was up and running in no time. I'll be back for more! .........Curtis..........
Groove monkey Great grooves
GREAT STUFF! These MIDI loops offer so much to the home songwriter who wants to flesh out a complete idea and have it sound as close at to the finished product as possible. Also, if you're stuck and can't find a riff.... sort through these drum loops to find something to get your mind grooving to something or step outside your comfort zone...
Excellent quality + value Excellent quality + value
I needed drum loops I needed drum loops to inspire me. That is exactly what I have received.thanks
The drum tracks are perfectly The drum tracks are perfectly played without quantizing. If I had a complaint, it would be the the verse and chorus tracks are all a bit too similar to one another. Many times, I have to wait to hear a slight difference such as an extra beat and such. More variety in the verse and chorus tracks please. Many thanks, Mark
Big easy Great range of tracks, really well recorded. Easy to install, works very well with ezdrummer
Big Easy...great beats as usual Big Easy...great beats as usual for Groove Monkee.
Big Easy MIDI Drum Loops I am quite pleased with this Drum Loop package. In fact after buying it and working with a few of the patterns in a project or two I can say, the "feel" is very natural and fits right into the music I am working on. Often times I require tweaking patterns to make them lay into the groove of the song better... not so much with these loops. At least so far, the fit as if a real drummer were listening to the tune while playing. And I would go on to say the quality is right there with ToonTracks and other competitors in the field of MIDI Drum loops. I have NO DOUBT I'll be back to purchase more of the GrooveMonkee products.
Big Easy MIDI Drum Loops Hey, these loops have a great feel and connection. Like I'm heading south to New Orleans and looking for a bunch of cats to groove with!
Big Easy MIDI Drum Loops I am really enjoying these loops. There are a large variety of styles. I love the bonus second line loops. This was well worth the price.
A pretty inspiring collection I bought this pack after hearing the samples. I wanted something to get the creative juices flowing when I pick up the bass. This stuff certainly ticked that box and did not disappoint.
Simple is the best This is a very simple phrase So it fits any song style
Nice but not great I had greater expectations from this library
Big Easy for New Orleans Style Found just the beats I needed for a project. Great feel and groove.
Groove install and go, it's that simple to get great midi drums that have a great feel
Great addition to library Great to have access to additional grooves for EZDrummer. Executed and sorted well, some funkalicious grooves mixed in the traditional Norlins stuff. Recommended.
Big Easy Grooves Perfect for the New Orleans based project I've been working on!
Variety Great beats! A large selection of styles and a lot of variations to each style. I especially liked the "Solo" sections!
Good Stuff I like the dum loops I have from Goove Monkey. I use them often and they have a good feel to them.
Big Easy - as the title says Great grooves, well structured for EZD
Indeed Big AND Easy I've used the Big Easy MIDI pack to put together tasty drum tracks with minimal effort. Mostly just cut & paste with very little actual editing. Results can be heard at https://soundcloud.com/dale-blasingame/brang-some-funk Highly recommended!
Loops are great I recently made my first purchase from Groove Monkey and while it took me a few tries to download them and use them with my D A W once I got past that it was great ! The loops sound good and are musical.not drum machine sounding.. I will definitely be getting more loops from Groove Monkey .
Big Easy Drum Loops Very funky just the way they should be! Great jamming and composition loops with tons of creative possibilities.
Big Easy MIDI drum loops The set is a superb representation of the NOLA cadences and rhythms. The bass parts just fell right into place quite naturally and musically against these patterns. Additionally, the service associated with the sale was first rate. Can't say enough good things about GrooveMonkee.
That slunky vibe Great grooves, fills a big gap in my drum library.
Great collection Very usable collection. Works great with my EZdrummer 2
Big Easy Beat Buddy I was pleased with the product but was disappointed with the number of complete "songs" offered
Kudos for The Big Easy Loops The Big Easy grooves cover street beats, funk, shuffles and everything in between. These authentic rhythms take my creativity to new heights. Thank you Groove Monkee!
Big Eassy MIDI Drum Loops I was looking for the right grooves and drum fills for this tune, and I found exactly what I needed in the groovemonkee Big Easy library. You can hear these loops played on the EZDrummer2 Jazz Brush kit in the tune “Optimistic Optometrist” at this link: http://www.jvsax.com/john-vaillancourt-composer
Big Easy MIDI Loops A great set of easy to use Cajun and Zydeco drum patterns. I was able to create great tunes with Big Easy MIDI files and EZ Drummer 2 in minutes. Worth every penny!
Big Easy Midi Drum Loops I was looking for some different loops that would inspire my songwriting. As soon as I heard the Big Easy MIDI Drum Loops demo, I knew I had to have them! I bought the download immediately, opened up my DAW and a new song burst into life straight away! Thanks GM !
Independent Singer Songwriter It's the first group of MIDI beats I've bought from you and I love them! They imported into my Addictive Drums 2 seamlessly and I was using them immediately, and they sound great. I really appreciate all the variations within each group. I'm definitely coming back to you for more soon and intend to check in periodically to see what new grooves you've added. Very happy customer! -Dana Hubbard p.s. -the fact that most the beats you offer are a live performance by a real drummer is a huge deal to me!! I'll be singing your praises and spreading the word!
I'm really glad to have I'm really glad to have your Big Easy MIDI drum loops pack because make my composing much easier. At the moment I use it to make my new song. Thank you so much because you made it for us songwriters and finally we are FREE from drums programming! :D This is the link with one of my songs from 2nd CD. There is more and please check it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-oLrz8GMEA Best, Dejan
Big Easy made easy Great collection with grooves from all SOLA (Southern Louisiana) music styles. Not just 2nd line and New Orleans Funk but down home, out on the bayou, Cajun and Zydeco as well. Good stuff... thank you.
Another Great Library From GM This is another great library that musicians, singer/songwriters. and producers can use to create some inspired drum tracks. Impressive!
Great woonderfull You loops are really very good
Big Easy Midi Drum Loops are great!! Perfect funky blend that melds with EZ Drummer 2 for that New Orleans groove we all are looking for! Great Job!
Great drums! Excellent!
Good Natural sounding drums. Plenty of variation. Works very well with BFD. Very reasonably priced too. Much more agreeable than a hairy drummer.
As advertised. These drum packs contain a LOT of content, and are well worth the money.
Big Easy MIDI Drum Loops I've only just begun using the Big Easy Drum Loops package... so, to write an in depth review after so little time to experiment is perhaps incomplete but I'll try to offer something here. I'm using the GrooveMonkee loops within EZDrummer 1 and/or Superior Drummer, btw. There seems to be sufficient usable content in the MIDI Loop bundle. Of course, the real value of the loops can only be measured when "using them" in context to a song or performance. Just clicking on and listening to the loops (any drum loops) by themselves is short lived entertainment—for me, anyway. A loop needs to find it's place within the arrangement of a song or composition. Only then can their real function and value be appreciated. That said, I feel confident most of the Big Easy package will find a home in one song or another over time. This has been the case with my previous GrooveMonkee drum loop purchases. There is plenty of content within the bundle and I find a high percentage very usable. The loops are simply awaiting context by having a song to call home. I will say, it is nice to have a number of usable loops that are longer than only one or two measures. If I simply want to jam with them and experiment they feel more like an actual drummer because the loops are complete phrases of 8 or more measures and "feel" natural rather than machine driven, quantized loop. All in all I'm quite happy with my purchase and I would imagine I'll get a lot of use out of the Big Easy batch of loops... as I have with previous bundles. Good stuff! Give the monkee a big sweet banana!
Big Easy is really great. Awesome! Big Easy is giving me finally that New Orleans style I was looking for! Groove Monkee your the best!
Big, Easy...Need I say more? Nice grooves, reasonably-priced.
Inspiring These are funky inspiration!
Big Easy Beats If you like the rhythms of New Orleans then you will love this package. I have already used some of the second line grooves in my songs and they are so easy to work with and give great options. I was able to pop them straight into Kontakt via Abby Road and Studio Drummer and also EZDrummer. As a songwriter you can never have too many options and these guys really cater for that in their products. Reasonable prices too.
Big Easy loops a Big Hit This collection of loops is superb and I'm using them for a number of different 'backing' tunes! Keep up the good work!
It's so good I had to make a pot of red beans and rice Great selection of NOLA style beats from second lines to zydeco to cajun. I use it with SD jazz kit and it sounds like your sitting in Preservation Hall. Nice job Groovemokee.
