Welcome to PROSONIC'S MIDI PROGRESSION SERIES! You've just found THE ULTIMATE CHORD PROGRESSION LIBRARY...
PROSONIC'S new MIDI PROGRESSION SERIES went GOLD on May 1st 2007 and it's going to blow our creative possibilities wide OPEN!
This isn't like one of those old "chord dictionaries" in a paper book... It's a full-blown MIDI library that's over-flowing with thousands of professional, four-bar chord progressions in multiple time signatures!
You'd have to purchase hundreds of "chord dictionary" books to even come close to the content on this CD, and since they're all in MIDI, you can hear the progression instantly with any MIDI instrument you have. No paper book could ever do that!
This CD is like having a WHOLE LIBRARY of "chord dictionaries" and you can use the chord progressions in your own music royalty-free!
Each progression is carefully crafted to follow correct harmony & voice leading rules and the result is amazing! Every inversion is included and each chord is notated with MIDI marker events so that you know exactly what harmony is voiced at each spot in the sequence! (see images below)
I've experienced instant inspiration and song writing has never been easier. Each MIDI progression is like a creative launch-pad for your melodic ideas and the 'next part' in the song just leaps out at you! Begging you to take it to the next section!
If you perform an instrument these progressions are an invaluable tool for perfecting your improvisation skills. I play guitar and these have instantly made me a better player.
Just randomly select a progression and loop it over one of the PROSONIC MIDI DRUM BEATS! If you get stuck on a chord and can't seem to find the right notes... just look at the MIDI marker and you'll know exactly what chord it is!
I've found the progressions incredibly useful for honing my bass and vocal phrasing too. I can put up a progression and score a bass line to it. It's really amazing what happens when you have a simple harmonic structure to work from. This is going to revolutionize our craft and I'm extremely pleased to share it with you.
"Triads in Simple Rhythm & Common Time Signatures" is the first library in the MIDI PROGRESSION SERIES. These progressions can be used in any style and are perfect for a base layer to build your song up from!
There are over 160,000 four-bar diatonic and non-diatonic progressions in this library [and they all sound as good as (or better than) the demos] so be ready to stretch your sonic imagination beyond the limits!
Midi File Organization / Folder Structure
The first folder is the ROOT folder. It contains all of the MIDI Chord Progressions. It is named Midi-Progression-Library and is selected (highlighted blue).
2. TIME SIGNATURE:
Inside the ROOT folder are the TIME SIGNATURE folders. In the Simple Rhythms & Common Time Signatures Library there is 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 6/8, 9/8, and 12/8 and in the Simple Rhythms & Complex Time Signatures Library there is 5/4, 6/4, 7/4, 5/8, and 7/8. We currently have the 4/4 folder selected.
3. TONIC QUALITY:
Each TIME SIGNATURE folder contains the TONIC QUALITY folders. In this case Major and Minor. Chord progressions in Major Key are found in the Major folder and progressions in Minor Key are found in the Minor folder. We currently have the Major folder selected.
4. CHORD TYPE:
Inside the TONIC QUALITY folders are the CHORD TYPE folders. We currently have the Triads folder selected.
5. PROGRESSION START:
Inside the CHORD TYPE folders are the PROGRESSION START folders. These folders contain chord progressions that start on each scale degree in the key. We currently have the "Start at I" (tonic in major) folder selected.
6. CHORD STOP COUNT:
Inside the PROGRESSION START folders are the CHORD STOP COUNT folders. In this case we have "4 Chords" and "8 Chords". In the "4 Chords" folder there are progressions that have four chord "stops" or "pulses" and the same for "8 Chords". (Except there are eight chord stops in each progression.)
7. PHRASE TYPE:
Inside the CHORD STOP COUNT folders are the PHRASE TYPE folders. The "Phrase Type" indicates how the second two measures are treated in the progression. In "NoRepeat" the second two measures are different than the first two. In "QuestionAnswer" the first two measures are the "question" and the second two measures are the "answer". In "Repeat" the second two measures are a repeat of the first two but played a little differently. We currently have the NoRepeat folder selected.
Inside the PHRASE TYPE folders are the actual PROGRESSION folders. Each folder is named according to what progression it contains. The image below was taken in the "8 Chord" folder so that you can see it too. Notice that there are eight chord stops in each progression.
9. THE FILE:
Finally we are at the actual MIDI files. (Examine the file name in the above image.) The file name contains more information about the progression. At the beginning of the file (up to the '_') is the Rhythmic Pulse. So, for example, the first file (starting with "Beat1And2") has chords that sound on the 1st and 2nd beats of the measure.
The second part of the file name (the part after the '_') is the Beat Grouping. [This is only included in complex time signatures like 7/8.] Each digit represents the eighth note count in each beat. So, in the first file shown above, the Beat Grouping is 223. So there are 2 eighth notes in the first beat, 2 eighth notes in the second beat, and 3 eighth notes in the third beat.
The third part of the file name (the part after the second '_') is the Chord Inversion indication. 0 = Root position, 1 = First inversion, and 2 = Second inversion. Each position applies to each chord sequentially.
10. MIDI CHORD MARKERS:
Inside each MIDI progression file are the MIDI CHORD MARKERS. Each chord stop and its chord symbol are provided. So, looking at the image below, each chord has its chord symbol (and its inversion) marked above it. So the first chord is the tonic major in second inversion, and the second chord is a minor second chord in first inversion, etc.

MIDI Chord Progressions FAQ
Is the download version different than the shipped vesrion?
No, they are exactly the same. The download version contains exactly the same files as the DVD except you can start using them now!
What is a MIDI File?
The word "MIDI" is used to describe a few different things. A "MIDI file" can be thought of as "Sheet Music in Digital". (Sheet music that computers can read and play.)
Why use Prosonic Patterns instead of audio loops?
MIDI is a superior method of music composition for a number of reasons.
If you've ever used audio loops to write music you know how frustrating it can be to get them to fit just right in your song. You might find a great drum loop but how can you develop it while keeping the same drum sounds? You can only make variations on the timbre of the sound itself and that's it.
With Prosonic Patterns you have total control over every aspect of each note. Need to bring the hi-hats up in the mix? Easy! Need to change that note and make it sweeter? Just move it where you want it! Don't like a note... delete it!
You can also use a Prosonic Pattern for any instrument. So you can use a drum loop on any instrument (flute or violin for example) and come up with very unique and creative musical ideas!
You can even change the tempo of a Prosonic Pattern and the sound of the drums will be exactly as you sampled it.
What's a "MIDI CHORD PROGRESSION"?
We use the term "MIDI CHORD PROGRESSION" to mean: a 4, 8, or 16-bar musical chord progression (in MIDI) that is crafted to follow correct harmonic and voice leading rules.
What software can I use Prosonic Patterns in?
Every Prosonic Pattern is compatible with, and can be loaded into, any MIDI compatible software or hardware device (ie: your favorite sequencer).
Loading them into Propellerhead's Reason™ and Twelve Tone's Sonar™ has been especially rewarding. They are perfect for Cakewalk Project5, Battery 3, Cubase, Garageband, Pro Tools, Motif ES, Fruity Loops, EZdrummer, DFH, Sony's ACID® Pro, Ableton Live, and many more!
Prosonic Studios is a TAX-FREE website?
**We pay local taxes for you. We do not collect VAT tax, or any other taxes that you are responsible for paying, the taxes mandated by the laws in your country or place of residence.
It's a blast playing around with these tracks.
By Tom Sylvester on Thursday, April 26, 2018 | Verified Purchase
I'm impressed how accurate the MIDIs are. They integrate so easily into my Pro Tools rig (which I MIDI out to my full Roland Synth Drum Kit and my Proteus 2000 Rack). It's a blast playing around with these tracks. I'm getting better with working with MIDI, which is great when you start out with the full MIDI patterns without having to create them first yourself. These are quality files, which allows me to jump right in and start composing. Thanks so much, ProSonic!

Tony and the team at Prosonic Studios have filled a void in the modern musicians toolkit - it is simply a must have. The attention to detail is evident from the quality of the midi files, to the folder layout. Slips straight into your workflow. Amazing!
I wanted to try them straight away! After viewing the folder format and hearing the progressions, you instantly appreciate the attention to detail and the hours put in to make this comprehensive.
You learn to trust the quality of the library. This means you can concentrate on other creative parts of your craft.
Still as valuable as the day I purchased which was 5 years ago.
I’m very grateful that a professional musician has put this together for other musicians.

A GREAT EXPANSION TO MY TOONTRACK MIDI LIBRARY!!
Bought my first Prosonic Studio MIDI 4-Voices Series for the purpose of increasing my limited understanding and application of Piano-Keyboard chord progressions (since I’m not a pianist by any standard)...Smile! However, I found the whole experience so fascinating, after just a few days of messing around with the MASSIVE collection of chord variations and possible progressions. Prosonic Studios do actually understand the science and language of chord formation, and have put a lot of work into producing rock-solid products for the hobbyist/musician.
For Windows PC users they also include The Prosonic MIDI Browser for easy browsing of the thousands of MIDI files they provide. I personally use a Mac, and it works perfectly well with my Toontrack EZPlayer...an added bonus to my other Toontrack MIDI Files I might add!
You just cannot go wrong with these products, guys! The pricing is quite affordable...and did I mention that Prosonic do offer COUPONS every now and then?
It is well worth your money.
By Stephen Bipat on Monday, April 16, 2018 | Verified Purchase
I was initially worried about the quality of the Prosonic Libraries and I always thought they were really expensive. However, I was amazed when I listened to the free drum loops and Mp3 demos. I’m now converted and am the proud owner of 3 Prosonic Libraries, Reggae & Ska Drum Beats, 4-Voices in Simple Rhythm & Common Time Signatures and Major & Minor Arpeggio Patterns. The midi loops can easily be loaded and played in my DAW Ableton or another DAW of choice. It is well worth your money.
Especially useful in Superior Drummer...
By Robert Hartline on Friday, April 13, 2018 | Verified Purchase
Prosonics Midi patterns are comprehensive, easy to use, and help give me inspiration when I just can't find the right beat. The drum patterns are especially useful in Superior Drummer, and add a complete new toolkit to compliment the stock beats. The customer service is great, and the website makes my purchased patterns easy to download again if my computer crashes, which it has several times. The pricing is good, and you get a wide selection of beats for the money. I recommend Prosonics to anyone looking to improve the width of their MIDI library.
musical ideas I would have otherwise not thought of...
By Drake Ritter on Thursday, April 12, 2018 | Verified Purchase
Tony's patterns allow me to unlock doors of creativity by introducing musical ideas I would have otherwise not thought of. When trying to write, it is super refreshing to implement and experiment with the libraries. They provide me with a variety of new approaches and new foundational sounds on which melodic and rhythmic ideas can be built. In the customer service department--Tony is highly attentive to his client's feedback. He wants to genuinely give users precisely what they are looking for. It's important to him. Thanks Tony!
Very easy to find inspiration and song ideas here.
By Kurt Stoffer on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 | Verified Purchase
Tony Pappas' Prosonic Studio MIDI Libraries are fantastic. They have been a great tool for me to use in Ableton Live (they will work in any DAW). They are clearly organized by time signature and style and come with complete song/theme sections and also they are broken down into component parts (kicks, rides, snares, etc...) so very easy to drop in what you need. Since they are standard .mid files they are very easy to use as a starting point to get your groove on, then you can easily modify them in your DAW of choice to fit your track as needed. The Chord progression and arp libraries are extensive... seems like millions of files, lol... practically every chord progression known to man... and even some that aren't. Very easy to find inspiration and song ideas here.
It is very useful for studying composition.

The website of Tony is simple and easy to understand.
The MiDI file of Chord Progressions is my favorite. It is very useful for studying composition.
I am using them with Toontrack's EZ KEYS.
I can use them to make my songs very rich. Thanks Tony!
The length of the MIDI file is also very easy to use.
Tony 's MIDI browser also functions as a player and is free, but very useful software. I manage a lot of My MIDI files with a MIDI browser.
I hope that Tony will continue to make MIDI files that many music lovers will continue to enjoy.
Legit for beginners and good reference for the advanced
By Tony Pirkl on Friday, March 2, 2018 | Verified Purchase
West St. Paul, MN
The 4 voice chord progressions (for basic time signatures) is so useful in coming up with an initial inkling or inspiration for sections or even entire song foundations. I will likely get the complex time signatures down the road.
The arp patterns have an incredible variety to choose from in both major and minor keys (with many combinations I've never even heard before). The sheer number of choices available can actually be overwhelming at times but its far better too many than not enough...
Both would be legit tools for beginners and a good reference library for the more advanced musician.

Great Midi Chord Progressions and Arpeggios! If you are looking for inspiration for chords and melodies this is great!
I produce Hip Hop and sometimes I don't want to play the keys, so I pull in the Chords or Arpeggios and start from there.
Thats why I love using Prosonic Chord Progressions - just drag and drop the midi files into your daw and get some very nice Chord Progressions and Arpeggios - very easy!!!
Support is also very good, replies very fast!

This is a fantastic product. I use these patterns frequently in Sonar to create tracks for synths. So easy to use, just drag the midi on to your midi track and you're ready to go!
They truly inspire ideas for compositions and songs. These are also great for jamming to. I have had many flashes of inspiration just listening to the progressions in Sonar. Its so easy to lay out a progression and hook up a synth for jamming.
Definitely glad I found Prosonic!

You should definitely invest in Prosonic Libraries! Tony Pappas is the best! I love Prosonic Libraries! I've been using them for years.
I first encountered his libraries when I was the Chief Engineer at Music Farm New York, and then Head Producer at MFNY Studios. Since the formation of my most recent musical venture "Olm Ost" I have also had a great time exploring Prosonic libraries and incorporating them into my own larger musical compositions!!!
5 stars all round! Keep up the good work! Bravo Mr. Pappas!!!

I would highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in coming up with some unique ideas or who would like to explore some new or interesting melodic or rhythmic ideas. -Keats Handwriting
I'm amazed at both the quality and quantity...
By Sean young on Thursday, November 30, 2017 | Verified Purchase
So far, I've purchased two libraries from Prosonic, one of chords progressions and one arpeggio package, and I'm amazed at both the quality and quantity of the patterns here.
Whether you're looking for some ideas for chord progressions or want to build an entire song from scratch, these libraries have you covered.
The price is also pretty nice, considering that it would only buy you a fraction of this number of patterns on many similar sites. I've hardly scratched the surface of my first two but I can't wait to get my next library!
A massive quantity and variety of clips
By Graham Reed on Thursday, November 23, 2017 | Verified Purchase
These progressions were assembled with both talent and mathematical precision. Laid out in logical sequences, it's a snap to find what you are looking for. They are arranged in small enough chunks to fit easily into my Yamaha's annoyingly arcane file system.
With such a massive quantity and variety of clips you should always be able to find sounds with precisely the mood and nuance you seek.
As a teaching tool they are invaluable. You can hear the subtle effects that small (or large) changes have on perception and use these in subsequent efforts.
This is one of those rare times when a product that I didn't even know existed has instantly gained a prominent position in my musical toolbox. Thanks Prosonic!

I have really enjoyed the midi libraries I have purchased from prosonic studio. The MIDI files are very natural sounding and also greatly arranged. It is easy to navigate through the files to find what you're looking for because everything is labeled by the cord and/or note. I have purchased a lot of midi libraries and content online and often felt like I did not get my money's worth because the MIDI files we're basic and didn't sound very natural and we're not things that I didn't feel like I could have done on my own as to where prosonicstudio on the other hand gives you an edge moving into your production!

A fantastic value for the money! Well organized and complete, my library was super easy to install. After browsing just a few progressions, I was hit with the inspiration bug and started working on a new song right away!
I find the library is easy to navigate, making it very simple to find just the right progression for the song I am writing. Once I find the pattern I need, I love being able to just quickly drag the file right into my Logic Pro X. This has considerably sped up my workflow!

I find these patterns extremely invaluable. I have been poking around Loop Pack sites and subscription services for the ideal midi patterns for ages and always had to shell out lots of money just to get some that 'will do for now'.
Tony has taken on a gargantuan task, a labor of love coming up with sequences that work very well together and that will fit in admirably with anyone's music producing needs.
They also help a lot when you have music writer's block. It's a great starting point to what could be your next masterpiece or hit. Well done Tony!

very good value for the money

Prosonics libraries are very very good value for the money, First of all, they are arranged/organized sensibly so finding what you want is a breeze. They are very broad in scope and cover a lot of ground so it's very likely you will get what you are after. Simply find a style, select a key, then choose from the many variants available. I get particularly happy results using the chord progressions for feeding any arpeggiator. They work great for me especially since my keyboard and music theory skills are not strong. Hands down, a good buy. Do not miss this addition to your music tool box.

I purchased my first Prosonic Libraries 2 or 3 years ago and still find them a superb reference point when looking for interesting drum patterns and also when hunting out chord progression variations.

With every collection purchased, I was never disappointed. I appreciate the value for money of each library. I highly recommend Prosonic Libraries to all music producers. The libraries make it much easier to start producing and with a wide variety of genres there is something available for everyone.
The file and folder structure also makes it a breeze to find exactly what your looking for and even if you have little or no musical background (like myself) its not difficult to begin composing using Prosonic Libraries. Don't think just buy!
Used in Ableton, Pro Tools and Maschine Studio
By Gavin Bussenschutt on Saturday, September 2, 2017 | Verified Purchase
I have been using Prosonic midi libaries for a couple of years and find them invaluable. I will often start with one of the Prosonic templates as a base and build a song from there. I have used in Ableton, Pro Tools and Native Instruments Maschine Studio.
I will also say the drum patterns were extremely useful as a learning tool when first getting my head around creating realistic drums for my computer based music. I had never played the drums before and other midi patterns I picked up elsewhere were very basic and did not provide much variety.
They provide the "get me started" building blocks
By Kenneth Shafer on Thursday, August 31, 2017 | Verified Purchase
I do not consider myself an especially creative person. But with the Prosonic libraries I can still make music!
They provide the "get me started" building blocks that I use with my Digital Audio Workstation midi software to expand into full pieces. Transpose, copy 'n' paste, edit here and there, assign instruments to the tracks, and there I am - a complete work! With assurance that "the notes go together", which is an important benefit for someone like me who has only limited music theory. Don't let that hold you back!
I especially like the drum beats, though. And the syncopation options Prosonic provides give me plenty of opportunity to "mix it up" and avoid falling into a simple, boring 4-4 beat.
Thank you Prosonic Studios!

The midi libraries help me when I'm stuck trying to write songs. It is a great way to push your creativity forward. There are many combinations of chords to choose from and the possibilities are pretty much endless. I would recommend these libraries to anyone who don't really have a background in music theory. I personally use Ableton Live in my productions. It is easy to drag and drop the midi patterns into the DAW and start writing a song. Next I try to write a melody over the top or add more rhythm to the chords.

Prosonic midi libraries are great starting material for manipulating midi in Ableton Live (and I assume other programs as well).
They will enhance your creativity as opposed to limiting it if you have enough of an imagination and a playful spirit. Throwing together a mock-up or prototype is fast and easy.

It's the collaborative partner I've always wanted. The value for the price is second to none. The possibilities are endless. Thank you for your work!

I make my techno music much faster and easier now. I have now more time for the creative and technical parts of making my music. Now I can play more with the instruments live as the loop is going. Its very user friendly.
I will certainly buy more of Tony Pappas midi patterns and also try other genres to make my music making spectrum much larger.
Thank U Tony Pappas
These are worth every penny and more.

A seemingly endless supply of files and options. High quality and real musical progressions, I've been able to use and modify these right out of the gate.
I use these progressions to generate drum and keyboard loops. They are easy to access, download, and integrate in my DAW (Reaper). I am also using Native Instruments keyboard and these files work flawlessly with all the NI software.
I will for sure be browsing and using more of Prosonics libraries as they grow and expand. These are worth every penny and more.
This is one of the best products I have ever used...

This is one of the best products I have ever used in my musical career.
It helps me on almost every track, even if I don't use that exact progression it inspires and gives me a great place to move forward. It gives you a great starting place for your productions.
The only problem i ever had was moving the unzipped midi files to a new drive. There are so many of them that it took 7 hours to move them all. This is not a negative, it is awesome you get so much content for so little. I don't understand how he is able to come up with so much.
If you are looking for inspiration I strongly recommend this

As a Prosonic user I can say that my experience has been great.
I am a song writer and a musical producer of TV shows, radio programs, advertisment jingles and life music shows from Mexico City always looking for new ideas, Prosonic has a great variety of music styles and chord progressions that are very inspirational, once you start as a Prosonic user you never know where you are going to stop.
If you are looking for inspiration I strongly recommend this site, it rocks!!! Let the music begin!
Similar products cost more and don't offer the same value

I have to say that ProSonic products have really helped inspire my songwriting and filled in the gaps where I was short on ideas. These products can be used as a kickstart to creating a new song or to drop in when you need to change up an existing one to add some color.
I'd highly recommend them to anyone out there wanting to create. You really can't go wrong with the money because similar products can cost much more and don't always offer the same value that ProSonic does.
Customer service is top notch, very responsive.

As a producer building my MIDI library, the Prosonic Studio chords and drum patterns were very useful for instant inspiration.
Also, the chords and drum patterns are also great for speeding up a producer's work flow. We all know how important a speedy work flow is in the music production process. There are thousands of MIDI files and they are organized in folders to keep you organized.
Music producers looking for this should check out these products.
Customer service is top notch as the staff is very responsive to questions/requests.

Prosonic packs have exceeded my expectations

I bought the Blues and Rock n Roll drum pack and a Triad progression pack from Tony at Prosonic. They have been a great aid in kicking off fresh ideas as they are very simple to access and drop into your DAW of choice.
They are also ideal as material to use as starting points for tracks that you can easily cut and paste to quickly create variations in your music. I had thought for a while the Prosonic packs would be useful but they have exceeded my expectations. Thanks Tony

As a singer, songwriter, and producer who has lots of great ideas, but NOT the greatest foundation in music theory, I have found these libraries to be INVALUABLE in my production. If I have an idea I am toying with, I can always count on these libraries to have a progression that fits. And when I'm feeling a creative block, a few minutes spent browsing them typically gets me going into something that ends up great!
It always brings me joy when someone listens to a project of mine and comments on my playing. I secretly know that without these libraries it would be a different story!!
Couldn't be happier!!
it has really opened up my creativity...

I recommend this midi patterns to any producer who wants to be inspired and speed up there work flow
I just love this collection!

I purchased Triad Midi Progressions for two reasons
1. I needed some MIDI files for music production in my DAWs (Ableton Live, FL Studio and Studio One), and
2. I wanted to learn how to play some of these progressions on keyboards as I am a trained percussionist and not a keyboard player.
What I did not expect was the huge number of MIDI files in the pack, I have not even listened to 10% of them!
I will go back to this library over and over again for inspiration and practice.
I just love this collection!
They're an infinite pallette of musical capability...

Prosonic libraries are the most detailed, musical, and comprehensive midi packages in the world.
You cannot find midi samples of this kind of quality and in such large quantity per package anywhere.
Since buying prosonic I have never needed another midi pack and have enough material to feed my vsts for life.
Can't thank you enough Tony, you have eliminated all writers block and given me an infinite pallette of musical capability for years to come.
Helping me find ideas for new compositions
By Stan Shore on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 | Verified Purchase
I was having real problems creating new music. In a real slump. I discovered the chord progression packs and bought a few.
At first I was completely overwhelmed by the sheer size of the collections. I called Prosonic and Tony answered. He was incredibly supportive and helped me get a handle on how to navigate the collections and, more importantly, how to use them.
The progressions are really helping me find ideas for new compositions.
I'm out of my slump and enjoying the creative process again.
For me it's like a secret weapon...

I often use the "4-Voice MIDI Chord Progressions" as an Inspiration or as a starting point. It is also useful for me to practice Improvisation.
I'm really impressed about the large amount of Chord Progressions. It's great to use them with Instruments which can play Arpeggios from Chords.
I also like the "Major & Minor Arpeggios" which I often use in my Vienna Instruments Pro Midi Sequencer (you can import Midi-Files...).
I also like that all future versions are free for Life.
It took some time to find something like this. I dont't use it every time, but for me it's like a secret weapon.
Its a good package and all at a decent price
By Patrick Mooney on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 | Verified Purchase
With a little effort you can build some good progressions. I usually use the midi within EZ Keys then send the signal to other virtual instruments, lounge lizard, classic organs, pianos etc...
You can even use the midi progressions to send to orchestral vst instruments. All depends on how creative you are using the midi.
All the chord progressions are organized very well, so its easy to lay something down quick. All in all i think its a good package and all at a decent price.
"I use these chord progressions every time I practice. I even used a few on my new album Intergalactic Highway
