Toontrack releases Eighties Pop Grooves MIDI pack

Toontrack has announced the release of the Eighties Pop Grooves MIDI pack. This marks the seventy-fifth title in Toontrack's ever-growing collection of MIDI content for EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 3.

Here's what they say:

Pop drums in the eighties were somewhat a marriage between two eras. At one end of the scale, drum machines and monotonous beats were forcing their way into the sound of the time, while on the opposite side, groove, feel and timing were more important than ever. Amid all this was the traditional drummer, caught in an age when technology came head to head with tradition. Producers introduced click-tracks on a larger scale, asked drummers to play with machine-like precision to not clinch with their sequenced parts and had them lay down their tracks as the first step in a production – all while session drummers like John Robinson, Ricky Lawson, Phil Collins, Manu Katché, Jonathan Moffet, Jeff Porcaro, Kenny Aronoff and Stewart Copeland rose to iconic fame and had more work than ever. This era is indeed a man-against-machine scenario, where drummers who bridged the gap the best came out on top. Who'll ever forget those gated reverbs, larger-than-life drum fill breaks and machine-like beats? Interesting time indeed.

This collection of grooves explores the rich song treasures and artists of the time. Prepare for sturdy beats with an abundance of feel combined with some timeless session drummer magic that can fall into any track with seamless precision. Just like back then, but now – ready for your modern eighties-flavored pop songs.

Features:

  • Drum MIDI grooves and fills inspired by pop songs and iconic drummers of the '80s.
  • More than 500 individually played MIDI files.
  • Intro, verse, pre-chorus, chorus, bridge and fills sections.

Price: €25.
