Midi File Organization / Folder Structure


1. ROOT: The first folder is the ROOT folder. This folder contains all of the MIDI Phrases. It is named "Prosonic Phrases 3.0" and is selected (highlighted blue). Drum Loop Root

2. STYLE: The ROOT folder contains the STYLE folders. The Blues & Rock-n-Roll folder is selected. Drum Loop Style

3. TIME SIGNATURE & FEEL: Each STYLE folder contains the TIME SIGNATURE & FEEL folders. In the Common Time Signatures library there are 6 time signatures: 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 6/8, 9/8, and 12/8. In the Complex Time Signatures library there are 7 time signatures: 5/4, 6/4, 7/4, 5/8, 7/8, 10/8, and 11/8. There are 6 possible feelings: [Normal Straight], [Normal Medium-Swing], [Normal Hard-Swing], [Double-Time Medium-Swing], [Double-Time Hard-Swing]. Drum Loop Time Signature Feel

4. THEME: Inside the TIME SIGNATURE & FEEL folders are the THEME folders. The MIDI Phrases are grouped into "themes". Each THEME has a particular groove to it and there are lots of variations within each THEME. Drum Pattern Theme

5. THEME CONTENTS: Inside the THEME folders are the SYNCOPATION folder and the midi files. The SYNCOPATION folder contains all the theme phrases in a heavily syncopated format. The syncopation folder is only in 4/4 and if you're looking for something a little different check here. [I personally find this folder to be the most interesting... it's amazing how many lyrical sequences can come out of asymmetrical patterns.] Drum Pattern Syncopation

6. THE MIDI FILES: Inside each THEME folder are the actual midi files. The first number in the file name is the variation group. In this case there are 8 variations in variation group zero "0". The second number is the number of notes in the file. So the selected file has 46 notes in it. Next come the names of the instruments contained inside the pattern. So the selected pattern has KICKS and HI-HATS playing in it. The last number is just a unique index and has no significance. Drum Pattern Midi Files

7. FILES CONTINUED: As you go down the list the patterns continue to "build up". There are more instruments added (and therefore more notes) so the textures get thicker. I've scrolled down a little here, notice the file I have selected, it has 99 notes played by 8 instruments: Kick, Ride, Toms, Snare, Hand Claps, Congas, Side-Stick, and Bongos. Drum Pattern Midi Files Cont

8. SINGLE INSTRUMENTS: Inside the ROOT folder is the Singles folder. (It has a "z_" in front to make it go to the bottom of the list.) The Singles folder contains all the single instrument patterns. Notice, in this example I've selected the 6th Hi-Hats file. The first number in the file is the note count. The last number is a unique index. Drum Instruments

INSTRUMENT ABBREVIATIONS: Here are the abbreviations for each instrument. They're simple, but I'm putting them here in case you're interested.

Sticks=STIX | Kicks=KICK | Clap=CLAP
Toms=TOM | HiHats=HAT | Snares=SNAR
SideStick=SSTK | Bongos=BONG | Congas=CONG
Cabasa=CABA | Maracas=MARA | Guiro=GIRO
Claves=CLAV | Cuica=CICA | Castanets=CAST
Shaker=SHAK | Rides=RIDE | Cymbals=CYMB
Tambourine=TAMB | Cowbell=COWB | Triangles=TRIA
WoodBlocks=WOOD | Timbale=TIMB | Agogo=AGOG

MIDI File & Drum Pattern FAQ


What is a MIDI File?

While 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 MIDI loops 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 MIDI Phrases 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 MIDI Phrase on any instrument. So you can use a drum Phrase 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 MIDI loop and the sound of the drums will be exactly as you sampled it.

What is a "MIDI PHRASE"?

We use the term "MIDI PHRASE" to mean: a four-bar musical pattern (in MIDI) that is crafted to loop perfectly.

What is a "MIDI PATTERN"?

We use the term "MIDI PATTERN" to mean: a one-bar musical pattern (in MIDI) that is crafted to loop perfectly.

Are there any other differences between the
"MIDI PHRASES" and a "MIDI PATTERNS"?

The new Phrases are awsome! Way better than the patterns! This is a MASSIVE upgrade that is going to take a little time to correctly document here. (coming soon though!)

What software can I use MIDI Phrases in?

Every MIDI Phrase is mapped to the General MIDI Standard and is compatible with, and can be loaded into, any Genearl 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!
