FREE: AskAudio EZ Drummer MIDI Pack
Toby Pitman on Sun, February 22nd 9 comments
Grab yourself a FREE MIDI pack for Toontrack's EZ Drummer, which includes 4/4 and 6/4 half time shuffles courtesy of Toby Pitman. Simply login or sign up with a free account and download them here.

Included in this MIDI Pack are two variations on a Half Time Shuffle. There aren’t really any grooves like this in the supplied MIDI (or expansion packs) so I made my own as a starting point for these kinds of grooves.


One is 4/4 and based on a John Bonham type feel from ‘Fool In The Rain’. The other is a 6/4 shuffle reminiscent of Bernard Purdy. 

DOWNLOAD MIDI PACK HERE

DOWNLOAD MODERN KIT PRESET HERE

  • Place the MIDI Pack in your EZDrummer installation folder.
  • Toontrack > EZDrummer > MIDI
  • It should show up in the browser under ‘User Libraries’ at the bottom.
  • Don’t forget in EZDrummer 2 you can place these in the MIDI player and switch the leading hand (Power Hand) and tweak the performance velocities in the ‘Edit Play Style’ window.
  • Unfortunately you can’t use these in the Song Creator as there’s no way to tag 3rd-party MIDI files as yet. 
  • I’ve included a preset for the ‘Modern’ kit that was used to program the loops which were played by hand. It’s called ‘Ask Audio Shuffle Kit’.
  • This needs to go into the ‘UserPresets’ folder. You can find the location of the user folder by clicking the ‘Manage In Finder’ option.

    Hi, just downloaded the MIDI pack, it seems that there are a few folders which are empty: "100@_Halftime_Shuffles", "101@_", "102@_4#4", "104@_" and "105@_6#4". Was this intentional?

    For anyone asking. The empty folders are used to format the browser in EZD with spaces and titles. They are empty on purpose.

    Do these midi files work in Superior Drummer 2.0 ? or Logic Drummer?

    @Kensmith The preset was in the files I submitted. Just contacted Rounik to see where it went. @Carey Yes, these files should work fine with SD2.0 (and probably Logic Drummer). You may have to play about with the velocity mapping for other kits but it shouldn't be to much hassle. You may also have to remap a crash or two as well. Anything below C1 is usually not a GM Standard mapped hit.
