Platinum Samples releases Real Jazz MIDI Groove Pack [BFD|GM]

Platinum Samples and John Emrich have announced the release of the Real Jazz MIDI Groove Pack, which they say is "the definitive Jazz MIDI groove collection featuring both stick and brush grooves". Real Jazz is a collection of over 2,100 live, jazz grooves recorded as a real performance on an electronic drum set at specific tempos.

Jazz has to swing, and it has to groove - the key is the swing eighth note, which in jazz has a slightly different inflection at different tempos. Each tempo category in Real Jazz was recorded for accuracy to capture the correct relationship of the notes in the swing pattern. With all of the different tempos represented in this collection, it is easy to keep the correct swing feel intact. The MIDI grooves include 2-beats, 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, ballads, and shuffles for both sticks and brushes. Real Jazz even includes some bop and jungle grooves.

Platinum Samples says that this collection features the "first real usable set of brush patterns for MIDI". By using the sweep articulations available in drum VST and Core Audio instruments, the Real Jazz grooves replicate the correct sound and feel of playing brushes.

This multi-format collection includes grooves formatted as BFD2 palettes, BFD 1.5 bundles, as well as General MIDI Standard MIDI Files which can be used with any GM compatible drum software or hardware - this includes drum machines and synthesizers which have drum sounds.

With over 50 years of experience in the professional music industry, Platinum Samples and John Emrich have now turned their attention to developing MIDI Grooves. Real Jazz was recorded over a five-day session by John Emrich on a Yamaha DTXtremeIII Special electronic drum set. No quantization, mouse clicks, or pastes were used - they leave that to you. Use this as the starting point for all your future jazz needs, as well as a creative catalyst for other musical styles.

Real Jazz is available now as a download from Platinum Samples' website and includes BFD2 groove palettes, BFD 1.5 groove bundles and GM Standard MIDI files for $35.00.
