Although a cool midi pack, it's a bit busy* in terms of overly full rythms, and wasnt any intro, verse, chorus, outro setup.. they were all like Chorus - full on rythms so I had to modify them myself to get close to what I needed. Although they help to inspire ideas, the layout of these is intro/amateur
I was in the market for some new tools if you will, that can help make the creative process easier, quicker and more efficient. A lot of times loops can be tricky because they seldom fit the mood of the song you’re looking for, but these are different. A lot of times writing for TV or whatever you’re on a tight deadline and you fall to using loops for percussion or whatever, and a lot of time they stand out and are easily recognizable. Now if I’m in a crunch for time, or simply just sketching or just need something quick these midi loops are a great starting point, and can be used with any library of choosing. Definitely will make tight deadlines easier now. They will definitely be here to stay for a while.
It was really fascinating to be able to load midi files with such rhythmic patterns. It sparks your idea immediately. It would be even better if Alex can do a Vol. 2 for 6/8 tempo to complement the Adventurous Strings Vol 1. That would be awesome!
I've been looking for midi files for epic percussion for a long time. The Heroic Rhythms Vol.01 and the Heroic Rhythms Vol.02 are exactly what I wanted. Great that Heroic Rhythms Vol.02 for Studio One and Damage 2 is prepared. That's really nice! I am fully satisfied. Thanks Alex !
Some very good and usable rhythms. However, there were a few minor cons. 1. I was hoping for more midi patterns than were provided in this package. 2. The midi patterns were too quantized and lacked the human touch. 3. Pricey for what you get.
Hey Steven, thank you so much for your honest review. Just feel the need to clarify some things. 1. I have written out the exact content of the package. 2 Quantizing is always a matter of taste. Heroic Rhythms 2 is humanized but what is humanized for some, maybe sloppy for others. It is a fine line which I tend to leave to the user 3. Those loops are not simple drum grooves thought out percussion arrangements. Combines with the procedure of mapping and exporting those loops for two DAWs is very time-intensive, so I had to find a compromise. Hope you're still happy with the loops. However, if not, you always know that you have 30 days money-back guarantee with no questions asked :) Cheers, Alex
I really love this pack - an instant epic vibe, but unlike standard audio loops, they're in your control to analyse, then evolve and vary across the track.
