Maschine MIDI Drum Patterns
MIDI Drums for Maschine
Maschine MIDI Drum Patterns, MIDI library with which the user can combine individual patterns, building drum song sections in a modular way (works outside of Maschine too).
Maschine MDP was made to put drum patterns creation in hyper speed. Why like this? If you have 10 MIDI drum loops you have 10 MIDI drum loops you can use. If you use 10 MIDIs from this pack to make drums with just 4 elements each (more elements in drums equal more combinations possible but we'll focus on essential) you can make 210 combinations.
Let's say you are extremely picky about drums and you don't like whole 3/4 of results - you will still get 50 good results. That's just from 10 files while in this pack there are almost 1000 which you can combine with each other (not counting combination folder nor half time folder). It's also unique because to use it in Maschine you don't have to adjust, transpose or anything, just drag to pad which has drum sound on it and that's it.
For all those features it's a unique product on the market. While it was quite tedious to make it is very easy (and fun) to use. How easy is to use it: in short 3 words - just drag and drop (watch video).
The midi files were made for creating broken/irregular type of beats in first place, from downtempo, hip-hop, rock, breakbeat, DnB and anything in between (anything that isn't regular 4 to the floor beat).
If you make 4 on the floor like House etc this files can still be used for other elements (hi-hats, percussion). If your interest is half-time beats, used in for example trap and genres ending with a "step", we created MIDIs for that too.
All MIDI files were human made (not software generated) in a very slow time-consuming process.
Also, all MIDI files are in 4/4 and don't have any bpm information (usable at any tempo).
Despite the name Maschine MIDI Drum Patterns, it can be used in other DAWs/samplers in the same or similar way. Below is the list of all DAWs tested and results.
Most work the same way as within Maschine (v2, v1 wasn't tested) ie without any need for "special" settings: FL studio, Ableton, Cakewalk Sonar, Reaper, MuLab, Bitwig, Studio One. We couldn't test in more DAWs, so to be sure it will work on your machine please download the demo to test.
More details about our tests are in the manual, which is included in the demo also.
