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 older 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

MIDI File & Drum Pattern 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 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 Prosonic Pattern and the sound of the drums will be exactly as you sampled it.

What software can I use Prosonic Patterns in?

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

Thanks guys, very good job...

I am usually not the kind of guy that likes everything without finding something wrong or scanty about it...

Well there is nothing scanty here. What not to like? Really well organised, bunch of variety of well crafted midi patterns. When I get prepped midi drum patterns or loops, I almost always feel like changing the patterns and accents. Or add stuff. Because usually they come either to square or dry or repetitive or all of the above...

But to my surprise these midi patterns required very little adjustment. The need to tweak which rises up after an improve session, usually either with a Keyboard or a Bass, played over a pattern. Because you will want to arrange a new traffic accordingly. Since the drummer can't hear me, I have to do the listening for him.

The inspiration comes from small details and nuances for me. And then a good sound. But playing with a good drummer is a must. When you feel that good drum beating, it just pumps you up and elevates your playing like nobody's business..

So I felt like I had to write something about this trip...

I haven't tried everything but I certainly feel drown to indulge myself with more of the good stuff here...

Thanks guys, very good job...

These files give me the freedom to create

I have used ready-made midi drum libraries from Prosonic for backing tracks and recordings and have never been disappointed with the results. I can tailor the midi files for any of my sample libraries and because they are midi, I can customize them to suit any project. It takes a lot of tedium out of my workflow, drastically cutting down production time, (and money).

Not being a drummer, these files give me the freedom to create musical projects that would have been impossible for me before now.

Many thanks! Charlie Balogh

I was used to create my own midi drum patterns for years, spending a lot of time to ultimately achieve rather poor ones, lacking of true feeling and live taste. Then I started to look at ready made ones in the marketplace and found the Prosonic libraries. Great ! They just sound good and the way they are organized make them very easy easy to use. I am now saving a lot of time and quickly achieve the kind of result I am looking for.

I highly recommend getting your beats from Prosonic

I got a lotta drums for the money from Tony. The patterns were very diverse and excellent for a songwriter like myself who likes to always start every song using the best beat I can find.

Unlike other bundles of midi grooves the prosonic packets contain many many more variations of basic beats and even some that are not so basic. As a foundation for any good song you can find, if not exactly what you are looking for, you will find something very close.

After asking Tony what would be the best collection for my style he suggested the "PoP and Soft Rock"....it really fit the bill. The files also integrated seamlessly with EZ drummer2 making the whole process very smooth.

I highly recommend getting your beats from Prosonic instead of the bigger companies that charge more and offer less.

I can spend more time creating sounds...

Prosonic patterns always make it into my music. There's a great variety of sequences for rhythm and chords and also split single instrument midis. This makes the creation of polyrhythms easy as layering midi tracks and I'm not stuck with someone else's idea of a bass hit. Then you can take prosonic drum tracks and run them through a synth for more exotic sounds. I can spend more time creating the sounds rather than fighting with the timing. The variety of Prosonic patterns are just what I need.

The stylistic variety is unique and execution is superb...

The Prosonic MIDI drum patterns are a wonderful way to break the bonds of your favourite drum plugin. They can be easily fed into sequencers and plugins alike, offering longer takes than most drumsaplers have on board.

The stylistic variety is unique and the compability and execution (technically as well as musically) are superb. If you are not a drummer yourself, this is the next best you can come to it. A useful addition to every media composer's palette which will speed up your workflow when creating drum tracks.

As a long time Studio Producer, and "time served" Sound Engineer, I feel well qualified to advise you not to walk by Prosonics Products. The quality & also the VARIETY of their patterns stand tallest among ANY other available on the market.

Not mere Drum loops, but song builders & groove tools of the highest order. ALL patterns come split, enabling you to utilise these Midi patterns with far more control than any other. Everything tidily tagged...ooh...& the Free midi browser is a GODSEND!

They are great for instant production of music.

I use the patterns for techno music. I find that they are great for instant production of music which I then adapt within my DAW. Drag and drop straight in, EASY! The midi files I use are for all aspects from kicks, baselines, hi-hats and percussion loops.

The swing elements give a great variation on your basic 4/4 groove and the amount of creation I feel is limitless. This is the only midi collection that I own and use. I don't feel that I need another.

I got myself a copy of the Techno & House Midi Drum Library and I definitely got great value for my money. The library is packed with high quality loops and provides me with instant inspiration to start a new track or to add a little spice to an existing one.

The dynamics and groove of the midi files are spot on and give your drums a human feel, something that is very important to me. I'm very happy I discovered the world of Prosonic Studios, keep up the good work Tony Pappas!

Tremendous value, they're excellent patterns and priced very fairly for the number and quality in each package. The MIDI files are well catalogued and organized, with a natural feel and good dynamics.

I've used these in Toontrack's EZDrummer 2 and in Superior Drummer 2.0, integrating them with other samples. The mapping works well in General MIDI compatible drummer settings, and I haven't experienced any problems with other software.

I really enjoyed the variety and realism of the Latin & Salsa patterns, which are difficult to get a good feel with. Plenty of dynamics in the Heavy Metal & Punk patterns also.

As a songwriter they do just what I need them to.

My biggest thumbs up is the ability to make each and every file your own. It is quite customizable. It is great when your production needs a little push or if you want a quick drag and drop possibility to get your track started.

I have found it very difficult to find great latin rhythms for a song I'm working on. After weeks of searching various libraries and listening to a lot of loops, I took a chance on the Prosonic "Latin and Salsa" loops library. I'm happy to say that it far exceeded my expectations.

The beats have a great feel and there is a tremendous selection to choose from.

The two biggest challenges this library has presented is a) getting the time to go through all the great loops (a great problem to have) and b) staying focused on my original song when it's so easy to be distracted by the new rhythms into writing more new songs! (another great problem to have).

Thanks Tony!

Heres the thing i loved about the bundle of drum patterns i purchased. They helped me compose things i didnt know i had in me. The creative inspiration alone made the purchase worth it and then some!

Expirimenting with time signatures unfamiliar to me has helped me grow as a musician, and these bundles have so many feels to choose from.

Im glad i acted on the impulse. I got so much more pleasure messing with my DAW because of my purchase. I recommend these bundles to anybody needing help getting out of a creative rut.
