I write and record soft folk, country, rocky blues. Must of the loops I find are way too busy. The Rock 2 MIDI Drum Loops - Alternative Soft have the groove that I'm looking for.
I'm always excited and happy when I dig into a pack of midi beats from Groove Monkey.
Thank you for these rhythms which are really very good and realistic.
I use Beatbuddy.
I removed a star because I expected to find "Floor TOM" or "Tribal" rhythms.
Do you have a series of rhythms on the TOMs?
Great as always!
Excellent as a companion to the rock bass grooves to get inspiration for a song.
Rock 2 MIDI Drum Loops
Simply the best. Inspiring and very useful.
Rock 2 Midi Drum Loops
I moved the GM Rock 2 midi files easily into my Superior Drummer 3 software and run Universal Audio Luna as my new DAW. The midi files are great and I use them frequently. Also, high kudos for the GM staff who are very responsive in taking care of the customer.

Drum loops for Beatbuddy
I have purchased already several Groove Monkee drum loops for my Beatbuddy, and I'm really satisfied about the quality of the loops.
Thanks a lot Groove Monkee!
Rock Drum Loops
Using with Cockos Reaper and Toontrack EZDrummer2 to add alternative choices explore. So far finding this exploration of music making fascinating.
Every loop usable
Always a source of inspiration and these loops are no exception. They work well within EZplayer and EZdrummer which are my mainstays for drums. Keep up the great work guys and the customer support is brilliant too.
Well laid out
This was the first time I’d ordered from you and I was really happy with the layout and plenty of fill options. Very easy to navigate through and I found them easier than the native ezdrummer midi packs because they aren’t nested within song part folders which an extra click not required
Great midi drums
They always work well with my Drum software, especially BFD3. Can't go wrong if you need to tweak any of the phrases or fills.
Excellent and groovy :)
Very nice job Groovemonkey’s! The drums are very groovy and sound’s good. I appreciate. So pro.
Very easy to install and great value for money. I'm using them in EZ Drummer and they sound great and will work in a wide variety of styles, not just rock. Buy with confidence!
Very good clips, but a
Very good clips, but a real pain trying to make them work with Addictive Drums 2! Finished up with a whole load of files downloaded and un-zipped but useless to me. Had to read the manual (that's unheard of for me!) before I found the right ones. A review of your system to enable buyers to just pick the files they need would be much appreciated.
Excellent offering! Highly recommended!
I have purchased several of the available drum grooves for use with my Beatbuddy drum machine. The loops sound fantastic, are not too busy and sit beautifully in the live mix. My duo www.fb.com/duo.littleblackdress plays al over the New England...these grooves get a ton of use and they just sound fantastic and realistic because they are not quantized (they have a human feel to them). I am in no way associated with Groove Monkey, I just think they have a really great product. You will have no regrets buying their loops.
Ballad MIDI Files x 1
i use superior drummer 3, these files translate well & the tutorials are very helpfull for installs etc.
Rock 2 Drum Loops
Pro grade midi loops for just about any drum instrument.
Excellent Quality and Value
I had a problem with my AD2 when I loaded the GM files. Great customer support helped me realize I had a problem with AD2. Once rectified, the GM worked perfectly and synced perfectly with the AD software. I will purchase again. Definitely worth the small purchase price.
Drums sound great.Nice and tight.
Work with Rock Songs so well! Great stuff!
Great drum loops!!
Awesome loops, instant inspiration!!
These Midi drums come in Handy when writing music in guitar pro 7
I've bought a lot of midi files from here and it really helps with my song writing! I use guitar pro 7 to write my song's, I don't know how to play the drums I play a guitar so this web site is where I go. THANKS VERY MUCH! Great prices to for what you get.
Thank you again!
Groove Monkee and Abbey Road Drums.
After finding Groove Monkee and Abbey Road Drums all the drum synths that came with my DAW have been retired. The feel of a real expert drummer is the way to go for me.
Rock on . .
Great new selection of loops. They fit in well with my rocky, country, bluesy songs.
Keep the beat going
Needed some more Midi beats for my BeatBuddy pedal and these filled the void. I was working on some original songs and these Loops were just the thing I needed to finish them up.
I am a fan of every midi title I get from groovemonkee. Very well done!
Midi Rock drums 2
I was able to get a great song going quickly and easily. Love the layout and song organization. Sat perfectly in the mix as well.
The songs and sounds of the kits are fine.The problem is they are very overpriced and not enough songs for the money.Perhaps if someone told the people behind the pricing that if they charged half they would get 8 times the sales hence even more profit then they make now.
I am not a Drummer but always had the privilege to play with superb drummers. So "programming " drums never came easy hard to get
The human touch. Rock 2 and especialky Rock 3 packages are easy to use inspiring non quantized midi drums . I use ten with the best drum virtual instrument BFD 3 and got real drummers fooled.
I particularly like the song structure makesniy easy to use.
Rock Songs Bass Lacking
Ordered the Rock Songs Bass and the corresponding Rock 2 Drum loops recently. Ordered during weekend sale which lowered cost, especially on the bass clips.
The drums are great and the bass clips do line up nicely. But there is simply not enough bass clips to impress me as any kind of professional product. The one song I am working on has only 1 choice of VERSE loop and only 8 loops available in all.
I also would recommend more documentation for the products. I would love to have quick one sentence summary of clips so I know what to expect. Something like CHORUS) Blah blah blah ...CHORUS ALT) Alternate chorus with greater emphasis on upbeats, great for leading up to the bridge. It would also be nice to have the complete product information prior to purchase so I would know how many and what kind of loops to expect.
Rock 2 MIDI Drum Loops
Groove monkey and I have started our relationship ever since they've been around!
They've made writing so much easier then the days of editing and using my sequencer!
In fact I spoke to designer and owner Russ who btw introduced me to the latest drum programs that today make songwriting a breeze...the complimentary patterns from into,to
Verse- fill,,,and variety of cymbals makes the changes so smooth and seamless that you feel like the drummer is right there with you n the studio! The quick exit upload to the most used drum programs also makes it extremely to find all your grooves in the folder of your drum files..
It's a must have for any Artist who is looking for the right groove. Over 100's to choose from and the styles are exactly what you'd get from a leader who knows their game!
Thank you Groove Monkey! You Rock!!!
It is alright
The choice of rhythms is not that exiting. But for the money I think it OK
The Rock Midi 2 loops are cool. I was interested in trying some of the free loops, but there was no way to install them. Just downloaded the loops and then am unable to try them out. I've also tried to re-load some drums I bought in August to a new computer, and have had little luck with that as well. Tried the legacy account thing, but they don't show up there for some reason. Thanks for asking.
I feel those midi patterns
Very good and useful
If this item included more
Ending patterns the best.
I enjoyed Rock 1 essential's better.
Rock and Roll
Pair these loops with the Rock bass midi and you can quickly lay down some excellent tracks.
Rock 2 Midi Drum Loops Review
These drum loops are very well made. They sound great in ezdrummer too.
Bought This After Trying The Amazing Free Midi Drum Pack
This is a great value midi pack, it doesn't specifically tell you how many files you get in the description but I took a chance and I wasn't disappointed. There are hundreds of drum beats to choose from and that doesn't even include the extras, so I was delighted when I got this. They did a good marketing job with that free midi drum pack, I downloaded that not expecting much (well it was free) and I couldn't believe the quality of drumbeats they made available for free, so thats why I made this purchase. The loops are brilliant, and I especially like that they're categorized into intro, outro, verse, bridge, chorus etc There is everything you need here to bring embellishment and movement to your songs, so I highly recommend this midi pack.
I enjoyed the variety of the loops within the bpm/genre. There was plenty to choose from. I was initially confused but appreciative of all the different formats. That allowed quick assembly. Will definitely be back for more.
Best value midi loops on the web. Fantastic.
Very happy, used with Addictive Drums 2 ! Great :-)
I like it

"I've been writing songs now for 20+ years and it has always proved difficult to be inspired using dead-sounding drum loops. Those sad days are gone now, thanks to you GM. As soon as I loaded a song file, I was free to do what I do best: write chords and a melody. I was inspired by the feel of the drum loops. They are not wooden and dead. It is the difference between night and day. I am inspired along with these GM loops instead of in spite of the loops. Thanks again GM."
