    Drums & Percussion 2 is a collection of 600+ drummer-played MIDI loops, fills and motifs and follows in the footsteps of the original Drums & Percussion collection, which has been one of the most popular "Twiddly.Bits" MIDI sample libraries for more than a decade.

    If you are a songwriter, a producer, or you work in video and need a variety of music content 'fast' ... you play live and need a variety of realistic drum backings... this collection offers the creme de la creme of KEYFAX's MIDI drum recordings in one cost-effective collection.

    In the years since the original Drums & Percussion was released we have recorded countless drummers from all over the world: drummers like Ron E Beck from Tower Of Power, Tim Siefert from The Yardies; American drummers, English drummers, African and Latin American drummers, none of whom contributed to the original Drums & Percussion library and all of whom have helped create masterful drum loops and fills for subsequent style-based collections that looked at Reggae, Salsa, Hip Hop, electronic dance music, and more.

    This collection features a dozen 'Rock' Patterns spanning classic rock loops and fills to blues shuffles, rock ballads, funk and 3/4 time feels. In the hip hop and R&B categories you'll find everything from breakbeats to 808 loops, classic West Coast feels to high energy jungle with both loops and fills on offer. There are more than 40 individual and cutting edge electronic/dance loops and fills - enough to inspire months of electronic wizardry.

    Sometimes you find yourself working in genres beyond your comfort zone and there's nothing worse than 'fake' jazz or Latin drumming. The collection features some peerless Latin and jazz loops recorded by top players in their fields. Same goes for the beautiful reggae loops and fills, and also the traditional country patterns.

    The percussion loops are based on individual instruments - congas, bongos, shakers, bells and blocks, tambourines etc. These can easily be combined with the full kit loops in the collection, or simply added to pre-existing drum tracks to add spice and life.

    SMF Type 1 file format. Guaranteed to work with all DAWs and hardware sequencers that can load/import .MIDs: Cubase (all versions, including LE and Sequel), GarageBand, Pro Tools, Logic, Acid, Reason, Ableton Live, FL Studio, Live, and Cakewalk (all versions), and with all VSTs or synth sound sources.

With up to 16 loops in each Pattern you can just load, solo a track and hit Play. The voicing will be appropriate and looping automatic. You can re-voice them, play them at any tempo, cut and caste them into existing Songs or Patterns, or just be inspired and just jam along... with these incredible - and real - players.
