Toontrack release Pocket Grooves

New groove library for soul, neo soul, hip-hop, funk, disco & R&B launched

Toontrack have 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

In a lot of modern music production, mixing and matching sound, style and groove is paramount to a song’s narrative. For instance, your 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.  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 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.

Pocket Grooves comprises a total of 489 individually played files with tempos ranging from 77 BPM to 135 BPM. Helpfully, beats in 4/4 and 6/8 are included with both straight and/or swing variations.
