Toontrack has announced the release of the Hip-Hop Offbeats MIDI pack, a collection of drum grooves and fills performed in unconventional rhythmic timing. This marks the sixty-second individual title in Toontrack's ever-growing line of drum MIDI optimized for EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 2.
Here's what they say:
When it comes to timing, there's no right or wrong. Some rush the beat, others stay behind it – a few, like Swedish drummer Hampus Sjöstedt, venture off into completely new rhythmic landscapes. "For me, I've realized that real groove is when I let go of all inhibitions, lose myself in the beat and just let music be music, " he commented.
This collection of drum MIDI captures the unique rhythmic philosophy and groove DNA of Hampus Sjöstedt. It covers a wide range of hip-hop styles and feels – all embodied by Hampus' unique rhythmic fingerprint. "I want my beats to provoke, to challenge convention and to inspire new takes on flow, " he said.
