Download Free 7/8 Drum Loops Here

May 29, 2012 Uncategorized 3 Comments

So, what’s up with 7/8?

free 7/8 drum loops

Yeah, what is up with 7/8 time? Well, for starters it’s a damn cool time signature – and a popular one if you’re into advanced music styles such as progressive rock and fusion. When OddGrooves started out back in 2008 all we did was odd meter drum loops. We have since then extended our range with funk, reggae, latin, metal and others genres. But now it’s back to our roots, so to speak. We have recorded a brand new selection of odd-meter drum loops, all in 7/8 time. And you get to download 8 of them right here, free of charge. 96 bars of top notch drumming recorded by professional drummer Magnus Brandell.

The free version of our 7/8 pack covers styles such as progressive rock, fusion and some pop. All in 7/8. Drum sampler mappings include Toontrack, Steven Slate 3 & 4, Addictive drums, I-Map and General MIDI.

OddGrooves Reviewed in Wusik Magazine

October 17, 2010 Blog Leave a comment

Our MIDI [intlink id=”9″ type=”page”]drum loops[/intlink] packs have been reviewed by the dynamic Alex Arsov of Wusik Magazine.

Here’s quote from the review:

“It is not hard to find some decent four-on-the-floor MIDI grooves among the competition, but when the time comes for fills and intros, Oddgrooves packs are absolutely unbeatable. Hats off to Mister Magnus… Live MIDI drum clips played by an excellent drummer, a collection where everything except the ordinary could be found. Magnus is a real drummer in all matters – unpredictable, wild with plenty of crazy ideas. ”

Fill Pack Update

November 17, 2009 Uncategorized Leave a comment

Hi, Per here with a quick note about the [intlink id=”51″ type=”page”]Fill Pack[/intlink].

We have a couple of sound clips up to showcase just a tiny portion of the content in the fill pack. The finished product will contain over 900 fills in 10 time signatures, played in 4 different tempos. As usual the focus is advanced hard-to-play stuff, but there are also some rather “normal-sounding” fills in there.

[intlink id=”245″ type=”post”]The sound clips can be found here[/intlink].

The Fill Pack will ship in early December.
