Velocity detailed Jungle Midi Drum breaks with human swing and groove.


Over 60 MIDI Drum Patterns featuring Human Performed Authentic Grooves: Perfectly crafted for Jungle, DNB, Hip Hop, and Breakbeat genres.


Capturing the nuances that make drummers groove!

This product is all about capturing the subtle details that make sequenced drums sound real - the snare hits, the ghost notes, the natural swing. Although crafted with Drum and Bass and Jungle in mind, these can be also slowed down to create infectious grooves for House, Hip Hop, or even Jazz.  They can even add a unique rhythmic twist to Soul and Pop tracks.

Inspired by legendary breaks such as Apache, Funky Drummer, the Big Beat, and of course, the Amen. Each MIDI drum pattern has a humanized performance which includes varying note lengths, Velocity, and Human timing. This is ideal for producers who want complete control. The MIDI allows easy rhythm edits, arrangements, better mix control, more options with FX, and greater sound design opportunities than the drum loop techniques standard in current drum and bass and Jungle productions.


Of course, with MIDI the rhythms will work with any tempo; Try using 160bpm + for Jungle and Drum and Bass, 130bpm for House, or 80bpm or lower for Hip Hop.

This breaks kit was created as a MIDI Drum Pack, the loops that come with it are the result of testing the MIDI files and sampler. Although very usable, they have had little processing, this was not created as a drum sample pack. 


Compatibility:

Compatible with any digital audio workstation (DAW) and sampler on the market, including Ableton Live (Sampler), Cubase (Groove Agent), Nuendo, Studio One, FL Studio, as well as third-party samplers such as HALion, Kontakt, Stylus RMX, Maschine and Simpler. I would highly recommend using and sampler and library that use multi-velocity samples, so you can hear the articulation and syncopated detail.


Demo Information;

  • Track 1, Jungle MIDI Drum Breaks Demo - This demo has been made using the Loops. Each Wav Loop was made using the MIDI

Tips and Tricks for Using MIDI Drum Breaks

  • It's important to use a sampler and sample library that utilizes multi-velocity samples. Without multi-velocity, you will miss the Snare, Hi Hat, and Kick articulation. Getting this right can really make the grooves shine. 
  • For Jungle try choosing short samples and use the amp envelope (ADSR) on your sampler to shorten the sustain and release. Heavy Jungle and DnB drums can even sound gated at times.
  • Kontakt Player 7 comes with a free drum sampler; The Urban and Funk preset works well with the pack.
  • Test muting some Kick or Snare hits and Cut up the patterns to build drum progressions and arrangements.
  • Try mixing and matching the different percussive instruments from the MIDI drum loops.

Example Loops

These are some screen prints of the 4 MIDI loops found in the pack to demonstrate the detail in these rhythmic compositions.


1 Disjointed break

Highly syncopated with cymbals and pedal hats creating rhythmical accents, perfect for dynamic start-and-stop styles. The audio demo can be found above and was created using HALion 7 which comes free with Cubase.



3 School Me 

A developing quick-fire roll of snares adds a slightly manic beat while maintaining the groove.



4 Amen Shake

A syncopated take on the Amen break with attention to velocity detail and a tightened swing, ideal for a Jungle feel. The Demo for this loop can be found above and was created using the free sample instrument which comes with Kontakt Player 7.



Please note, I only used 2 free samplers to create this demo. HALion which comes with Cubase, and Kontakt Player 7 Komplete Start, which is free from Native Instruments website.
