Toontrack releases "Power Metal" and "Hard Rock Grooves" MIDI packs

Toontrack announced the release of two new MIDI packs as part of their ongoing Metal Month. They cost €25 each.

Power Metal MIDI pack is a collection of drum grooves and fills inspired by power metal from the '80s through to today.

Strip any given power metal song down to the bare bones of the rhythm section and a few simple but key elements emerge: speed, power, accuracy and extreme musical prowess. In respect of the drums, that's exactly what this collection of MIDI is all about. Think the likes of Helloween, Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, Sabaton and Dragonforce and you'll hear the galloping beats, the frenetic bass drums, the rampant tempos and, of course, the odd crushing heavy grooves with all the fills and epic parts to go with them.

This collection of MIDI is a full circle compilation covering the fundamentals of what the genre has had to offer thus far – from the classic late '80s European era that launched the genre, through the often more aggressive and thrash-influenced American style predominant during the 1990s and ending up right where power metal is today: resurgent and ever so vibrant.

This "best of" grooves collection is the perfect match for anyone in need of a plethora of razor-sharp drum foundations for use in any epic metal context.

Feature Spotlight:

  • Drum grooves and fills inspired by power metal music from the '80s through to today.
  • Approx. 465 individually played files.
  • 4/4 in straight and/or swing feel.
  • Tempos ranging from 110 BPM to 220 BPM.
  • Song structure categorization (intro, verse, chorus, bridge, fills, etc.).

Hard Rock Grooves MIDI pack is a collection of MIDI drum grooves and fills performed by Michael Miley of Rival Sons.

Any decent drummer can play a basic beat, but not all can throw down a groove. There's a dichotomy between the two that sometimes is painfully obvious. One rocks, the other not so much. In this collection, Rival Sons' sticksman Michael Miley shows that his drumming undoubtedly belongs in the category that rocks. His sense of timing, feel, musicality and overall ability to play rudimentary drum grooves that just scream for a bass, a guitar and a vocal is second-to-none.

In Michael Miley's Hard Rock Grooves, we give you basic drum grooves and fills that are meant to serve as the linchpin in your next batch of hard rock songs. No unnecessary frills or uncalled-for prowess, just great drums that need your music.

Feature Spotlight:

  • Drum grooves and fills inspired by hard rock music of the past four decades.
  • Performed by Michael Miley (Rival Sons).
  • Approx. 350 individually played files.
  • 4/4 in straight and/or swing feel.
  • Tempos ranging from 73 BPM to 178 BPM.
  • Song structure categorization (intro, verse, chorus, bridge, fills, etc.).
