For use with Ezdrummer or Superior drummer the Indie Folk midi pack supplies producers and songwriters with a whole series drum grooves, fills and sections in midi format enabling quick and easy song writing for your next folk masterpiece.
Easy to install and customise the indie midi pack comes from the new range of midi expansions from Toontrack
The new midi files from Toon Track are an expansion on the midi patches included with the Ezdrummer and Superior drummer software.
With the Toontrack Indie folk midi pack Toontrack have worked with acclaimed drummer Stephen Belans to create a whole range of groves and patterns specifically to work within folk music.
"There is no law that says a drum beat requires eighth notes on the hi-hat – or even a hi-hat at all
", says drummer Stephen Belans. And isn't that what's at the very heart of indie music? To stay out of the beaten path, to go your own way, to always question the frayed, prevalent mindsets?
With the Indie Folk MIDI pack, Stephen Belans delivers a wide and useful range of grooves and fills for songwriters that are looking to expand their horizon, go outside their comfort zone or rethink what role the drums can play in a composition.
"Sometimes just a simple heartbeat/backbeat feel is all that's needed. Other times, the drums find their place at far ends of the spectrum. Some grooves stick to a smooth ebb and flow with a natural evolution of intensities while other ones use more dramatic transitions that don't rely on traditional rock defaults", says Stephen.
Every one of these grooves will work as-is. You won't need to change a note – but do feel free, there's plenty of room for customization to truly make them your own.
