Toontrack has announced the release of Pocket Grooves, a comprehensive collection of drum beats spanning anything from soul, neo-soul and hip-hop to funk, disco, R&B and fusion. This marks the fifty-sixth title in Toontrack’s ever-growing line of drum MIDI grooves for EZdrummer 2 or Superior Drummer 2.
The verse may have a tight hip-hop loop, the pre-chorus a subtle crescendo and, ultimately, the chorus may break out into a bombastic, full-on funk groove. This is just one scenario, but in a lot of modern music production, mixing and matching sound, style and groove is paramount to a song’s narrative.
With that and the modern, versatile songwriter in mind, drummer Brody Simpson created a conglomeration of grooves spanning anything from neo-soul to hip-hop, R&B, funk, fusion and pop – all performed flawlessly with the timing and nuance that only a great drummer can provide. Expect a tight, sturdy collection of drum grooves that will slide right into any modern song scenario. The perfect toolbox for any writer!
