The Swing Pack

$17.00

Ever tried to program a jazz drum groove in your sequencer? A rock beat can be a real pain if you want it to sound realistic, but a jazz groove is near-impossible to nail. The subtle playing nuances, those little snare drum ghost notes that almost are more felt than heard and the sections where you trade solos with the drummer… Forget about it. It takes FOREVER to get it right.

It’s like the old Duke Ellington song says: It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.

To get the job done, you need a real jazz drummer.

  • 138 MIDI jazz drum loops – That’s almost 55 minutes of great jazz drumming, or 2128 measures if you will.
  • 10 different tempos ranging from 100 to 210 BPM
  • Ride, hihat and tomtom grooves
  • Many variations in playing dynamics – “two-feel” softer, busy, loud etc
  • Trading Four sections with drum solo parts
  • Tempo doublings woven into some of the grooves
  • 5 different MIDI formats (EZ/Superior Drummer, Addictive Drums, Steven Slate Drums 4, I-Map and General MIDI)
  • All recorded live by Berklee-educated professional session drummer Magnus Brandell
  • No quantization whatsoever

Customer testimonials:

“After checking out your very generous free loops, I purchased the Jazz Drums loops at an equally generous price. The performances are absolutely amazing, the extended loop lengths (up to 32 bars) are great for arranging tunes and solo sections and the trading fours blew me away, but what stole the show for me, were the snare drum performances — top notch jazz drumming with breathtaking ghosting and tasteful syncopation. This is a collection no owner of EZX Jazz can afford to be without. Thank you again.”
