Powerful and potent A comprehensive and versatile collection for underpinning hard rock and metal tracks. As with practically all GrooveMonkee MIDI files they sound like a exactly like real drummer playing.
Great beats and easy install Good selection of beats. And the install for AD2 was seamless!
Good grooves Good midi grooves, used with EZDrummer 2.
Metal 2 Drum Loops There's a lot of loops here for the money. By the same drummer that did the progressive pack. Not only for metals heads, using slower tempos the beats and fills are excellent for a lot of styles of music.
Great! That applies to everything on this site and their customer service. Only gave 5 stars cuz THAT'S THE MAX!
Disappointed Disappointed, the grooves are mostly mere repetitions and are poorly organized. If you're using these MIDI drum loops for songwriting, it will really give you a hard time. Waste of Time and Money.
Metal composer Best friend I write original music, and sometimes I lack inspiration, and this is when this pack comes in. It helps me track my ideas down, and sometimes I just use the metal pack as is for some of my songs. Also I use Steven Slate SSD5.5 for my sampler, and this pack comes ready to drop in.
Great sounding , absolutely non Great sounding , absolutely non robotic patterns with lots of punchy metal aggression and modern feel.
Awesome grooves and high value for money I found these grooves more or less by accident and I just love them, excellent value for money.
metal mdi excellent
Metal MIDI Drum Loops Very good loops
All your essential metal beats These loops are pretty dank. If you already know how to program drums then this can get you 3/4ths of the way there so that you don't have to reprogram the same basis for a blast beat over and over, although for some folks they might not even need that. So far these have been very helpful for metal and also prog music for me. I like that they are not quantized. They are organized pretty well. I'd have liked a bit more variation in places, but again I cos be programing everything from scratch.
Great beats! Awesome grooves, Great variations, I absolutely needed that!
Nice pack Very usefull, it open the work for making good metal rythm. Had some problem with midi maping and Monkey team react with great efficience. Nice site
Title should be changed If they renamed this to the "Blast Beat" package I would give it 5 stars...because thats what this pack really is. Countless variations of blast beats. Which are great, but I was expecting some variety. Still better than Toontrack.
Extremely useful Thanks so much for all those loops, they are extremely useful to me during the writing process before starting to work on the tunes with my drummer. Love all the sets I own, this one is no exception. Great value for the money, would buy again anytime.
Best drum midi loops AFAIK the best drum midi loops comes from Groove Monkee... havent found another company that offers better value for the money.
Metal MIDI Drum Loops Vraiment le fun ! J'adore les chansons complète en extra faites-en plus :)
Fills the void SSD4 might sound great, but it lacks metal grooves and blast beats. Since I got Groovemonkee Metal Loops, SSD4 feels complete.
Not for me I don't use toontrack sampler and it feels like this library is for toontrack, it's maped correctly but the files are not efficient. It's hard to find what I'm looking for. Also the grooves are kinda strange , not natural at all and it feels like they are a lot less in number . Unfortunately I found my self not using it. Probably it's not for me or my drum samplers (no slate or toontrack or AD).
Pretty solid beats My only negative (if you can call it that) is that it would be nice to have a few more tempo options in the beats
Metal MIDI Loops Rule The MIDI loops in the Metal pack are amazingly crafted and so easy to use as-is. Of course they can be modified easily in the DAW, but so many of them are ready to use and sound great. I partner the loops with the virtual instrument Manic Metal Drums from Drums on Demand to make the performance of the loops sound so realistic and awesome, I have been examining the loops for several weeks and they offer a limitless way to design your own tracks. Don't hesitate to purchase these loops!
Metal Pack Is A Must Recently purchased the midi metal pack 2. Truly fantastic! Started creating right away in Studio One using these loops through SSD4. Great sounding and easy to manipulate. Well worth every penny. Wish I had come across Groove Monkee sooner. Highly recommended!!
Grooves Love the variety of maps available! Great product!
Midi loops are great!! Exactly what I wanted these loops are great with my EZDRUMMER!!! Now I need more!!!
metal!!! very good
Metal Drum Loops Exactly what I was looking for and so much more. Love that the velocity of the notes matches the playing style of the drummer. I’ll be busy with this pack of loops for years. Thank you so much!
Disappointed I was hoping for much more in full drum verse beat variety. I dont use nor know how to incorporate cymbal only beats for example. More main theme rhythms less clips bits and portions for me
Metal midi drum loops Bought for heavier/death metal type stuff and works an absolute treat. I usually program my own drum tracks and use the DFH midi grooves, but I can't imagine I'll need to anymore. Needed a little help mapping for EZ Drummer 2 into Cakewalk (2018 edition) and the support was quick, friendly and got my sorted.
Metal midi drums Great grooves, download and install was about as smooth as it gets...now im hopeing groove monkey comes out with some old style war drum midi I can use in Addictive Drums...THANX
Perfect for Black Metal I've started recording my first BM full lenght and needed plenty of blast beats
drum loops Metal MIDI A+
Metal MIDI Drum Loops REVIEW expertly crafted metal midi files !! great selection & usability !!! LOVE EM ALL !!!
Manual install for BFD3 is Manual install for BFD3 is impossible?
Metal 2 Amazing patterns, grooves, ends, fills... For classic and modern metal!
Great midi drums Great midi drums. Need the blastbeat for my black metal project. I guess this is the best purchase from you guys. Will be using with a freeware DAW and VST/VSTi (MT Power Drumkit 2, Sean Pandy Drums, Tracktion 6, Ignite Amps etc).
Ezdrummer 2 and Metal Midi Got my copy on sale for 50% off on Black Friday. Was a good deal for the money. Lots of basic metal beats but they copy the same beat and swap the hi hat for a ride and again for a cymbal ect... Not quite as many different beats as I was hoping. But I would buy again
Great selection!!! An amazing selection of grooves that have been crucial in my most recent productions.
Great for Backing Tracks I Play Guitar but I don't play the drums. I have IK Multimedia's Amplitube and these midi Drums come in handy when you don't know how to play the drums. I also write my own music on Guitar Pro 7. Again these Midi drums come in real Handy for my tracks. Thanks Groove Monkee for great Midi files and a Great Site to get the Midi Loops A Great Price Too!Sincerely, Billy Chase.
not good all blastbeats and double bass crap unbelievable
Excellent Super quality !
Metal & more! Groove Monkee Metals!! Okay, it doesn’t sound as correct as Groove Monkee Rocks! But the metal loops are great. If you need some metal grooves the Monkee’s got ‘em. Get ‘em now, you won’t be disappointed… I sure wasn’t.
Great grooves! I bought the Metal pack to get that 'real drummer' feeling on a project me and my Australian buddy is working on. I uploaded a new version of a track to dropbox where I had replaced the 'placeholder drums' with some of the groovemonkees, and when he heard it he was real stoked and wondered who I'd gotten to record these awesome drums. :)
My short review Everything is fine. Great file choise for various Daw's etc. clear folder schematic
I love these loops! I mainly bought these to check out the included mini pack. Really good stuff! I hope to see more full songs like this!! The metal loops are top notch as well.
outstanding beats and grooves for anyone's songs! ok i am really new to the home studio recording game and i bought my first drum groove software (bfd eco),which is great btw,but it doesn't come with nearly enough grooves to keep things fresh,at least not for my metal songs anyway..so i found groove monkee and immediately bought their metal groove pack..WOW!..once i unzipped the files and loaded them into eco (super easy to do,instructions were provided)it was like night and day with the amount of grooves i have now..tons!..i didn't realize it would be so many..and i'm talking intros,outros,main grooves,fills,the whole nine yards..definently glad i bought this groove pack and i look forward to grabbing a few more in the very near future..it has opened up so much more for me with my virtual drumming..well pleased customer right here..thanks monkee!!!
Great files! I found the files really useful and easy to use. I've been looking for good loops like these for a while!
Good stuff I am having a great time with these drums, they are very useful and integrate well with my other midi loops on EZdrummer. cant wait to see what you guys are going to deliver next.
Grooves/loops are excellently programmed with a very 'human' quality to them. Folder sorting could be slightly improved. I've been using this pack with NI Studio Drummer and have been extremely impressed by the variety and usefulness of the grooves supplied. Great care has been taken to add a realistic human feel with regards to the timing (intentionally ever so slightly off-the-beat in parts and constantly changing velocity in the double kicks and blasts) which has worked wonders to negate the regular "brutal typewriter" sound that I would traditionally associate with programmed drums. This pack has been an excellent songwriting tool and I could not recommend it enough for songwriting and demoing songs for your band. My only criticism is that I don't believe that there were enough subfolders contained within and thus I had to do some manual folder sorting (around 30-60 minutes worth) to get all of the files set out in a way that allowed me to easily view and select them through my Native Instruments Kontakt 5 plugin. Others may not find this to be an issue, but I found navigating through the beats to be a little cumbersome before I did this folder sorting, but I suppose that this is really just a symptom of such a vast array of beats/fills/grooves being supplied. A minor quibble, but I felt that it should to be mentioned as this pack would definitely get 5-stars from me if it weren't for this.
Choices! This pack has so many beats to choose from! I use it with EZDrummer and Studio Drummer. It works with both fine and the sound great playing these midi files. I also own other libraries from GM and love them too. I use most Electronic that I use with the above mentioned software packages as well as Battery 4. I highly recommend their stuff it is top quality at a great price.
Perfect! Perfect for my home studio. Way better than what I need, actually. I use the loops to help compose song ideas for the band. It won't ever replace my drummer, but it sure keeps him on his toes!
Balls to the wall!!!!!! Great double kick and thrash-blast beats galore! Great companion to the Punk package.
Metal Mania... Really good for getting some quick basic grooves and ideas down for songs rather than wasting time making them yourself. A range of beats and I really like the fact that they are not quantized either, thus giving them a better human feel. The best part is without question some of the quick fills that are only possible through a real drummer recording them. Good work.
The best 20 bucks I've spent in awhile! Groove Monkee midi packs are exactly what my tracks needed to come alive! As a metal musician, it's fairly difficult to obtain midi packs that don't sound mechanical and fake, especially at this price. It truly sounds as if a real drummer is playing on my songs now. I also found the number and variations of beats to be extraordinary. It really makes it possible to find the exact feeling that you're looking for to enhance your songs and give them the backbone that they need. Thank you Goove Monkee!
Very Usable! Very usable with tons of swagger, it has a very solid feel without total quantization.
Great solid beats!! LOVE it! Awesome stuff for any metalhead, from nu-metal to Death metal! I have been on a creative high since getting this pack! RJ www.reverbnation.com/palehorseprophesy
Very nice grooves I bought this pack in order to expand my midi library. I use EZ Drummer 2. It was quite easy to import the midi files. I have tried some with my metal drum kit and I like them very much. I am a guitar player and use them for jamming.
Metal drums 10/10 The" metal drums" pack offer a ton of decent midi grooves at different tempos and time signatures and a plethora of fills. Depending on your sampler or drum VSTi you will get realistic drum performances since none of the grooves are quantised and make full use of the velocity layers in your drum program. It's very easy to mix and match grooves and even slice them up to make them more unique. They are fairly well priced at $20.
Metal MIDI drum loops Good, solid, natural and useable drum MIDI. Works brilliantly with EZ Drummer 2, and fits in well with their interface. It's hard to recreate a natural drum performance on a piano roll, these packs go a long way to help create a believable drum track.
Heavy as a white dwarf's core The Metal Drum Loops are fantastic. Tons of grooves & fills with everything from intricate grooves to full-on blast beats. I'm digging it.
Great and varied selection Lots of great loops here, working perfectly with Superior Drummer 2 in GM mode. Detailed descriptions make finding which ones to try easy. Definitely recommended.
Ultra realistic grooves. I bought these because most of the grooves I bought have sounded very lifeless and robotic. These grooves sound like a real drummer and makes the music I have been writing sound more real than all the slick polished robotic metal I have. My only complaint is that I didn't buy more. Honestly best 20 bucks I have spent in a long time. Thanks for putting some honesty back in my music. The blast beats are sick btw...
J Gonzalez good product, I've enjoyed using the files to help me get ideas down and give me different perspectives on how a song can go.
Great drums collections I play guitar and been looking for a collection of drums loops to fill the background of my original songs, found the Metal Drums 2 collection and it has what I was looking for. I'm not a drummer so these loops make things much easier to prototype a song.
Essential! These are an absolute essential pack. These are hard hitting and flexible. Use them stock or edit them. You will be impressed with the results. Cheers
METAL 2!!!!!! Metal 2 midi loops work amazing with the new EZDrummer 2. I love the variety of grooves on this Metal pack as well as all GM products....they make my mouth water. I wasted years in free studio time; trying to write new material with a real drummer, this product is my solution to past mistakes....and then, trying to mic and record the drums was a nightmare....tempo issues, etc. etc. Love Groove Monkee bro!

SICK OF FRONTING A BAG JUST TO GET THE MONKEY TO DANCE???? Anyone with an editing tool can make believable drum tracks with these. Best on the market!!!
