Midi File Organization / Folder Structure
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).
The ROOT folder contains the STYLE folders. The Blues & Rock-n-Roll folder is selected.
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].
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.
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.]
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.
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.
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.
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
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!

I bought the Techno/House midi files a few months ago. As a electronic musician sometimes you need a boost of inspiration to get tracks going and he had the right sounds I was looking for. Tony creates some great midi pattens and I am thankful I found them! The price and amount of files is well worth it! I am just now waiting eagerly for Techno/House Vol 2 and will be on the look out for it when it comes out.
Thanks Tony! Keep em coming!
Very impressed with their quality in Logic Pro

I use Prosonic loops in my home studio, and have been very impressed with their quality. I have used the loops in original compositions and have also had a great time practicing with them. I use them with Logic Pro. They have helped building strong foundations for my tracks. I particularly liked the reggae loops. I have told all of my friends and students about Prosonic loops and will definitely be coming back for more. I intend to add lots of Prosonic grooves to my collection. Thank you for your excellent work.

These libraries do represent the specified genres very well. They are my go to grooves, when i am working in these styles of music. I use these midi drum libraries because they are well organized, and they save me time when i am trying to find a specific groove. The performances on the grooves are very tight, and tasty, to fit each particular style.
I would highly recommend these libraries as they are loaded with very usable midi files that are specific to the idiom and represent good value for money.

The midi loops that Prosonic Studios have provided me have just been simply wonderful. They're in time, simple to use, work with every plug-in I have and best of all. They work with any Beats Per Minute setting I give them. Every genera is covered. And that's just the DRUMS!! They have made putting music together incredibly easy and in turn saves a ton time and you end up getting a lot more done because of it. It's an amazing deal. What you get for the price makes the value, priceless. You can't beat it. Buy em! Now! Do it!
Affordable – easy to use – effective
By Harry Verheijen on Monday, November 13, 2017 | Verified Purchase
If you’re looking for midi libraries to help build up sound for your songs, Prosonic Studios has what you’re looking for. What I like most is that they’ve done the groundwork for you to simplify your work. In one recent song, “In Memorium”, I used their Triad Chord Progression library to add lead horn and background ambience synth modules – there was no guesswork required for the harmonies, since the level of complexity I wanted was already there and available for the choosing. A bit of innovation with the files did the rest for that part of my song.
For another song, “Swing Illusional #2”, I was looking to add a more subtle background ambience to contrast the rhythm of my funk guitar style. It was simple. Prosonic’s library provided what otherwise might have taken extra hours to put together – all I had to do was add the desired midi files into the plug-in modules I was using and I could then tweak minor adjustments to the swing values and sounds to get the results I wanted.
Especially when time on a project is limited, Prosonic libraries can help limit the need to reinvent the wheel and allow you to spend more time on the creative side of your song for generating diverse sounds and fitting it all together with various techniques for something new. And that’s really what I personally enjoy doing the most. For that reason, I turn to my Prosonic midi library for ideas & foundations that I can use in some of my songs.
As a resource, these libraries are affordable – easy to use – effective. You can check out for yourself what I did with mine – both songs on Soundcloud are available for free listening. Prosonic Studios helped make song creation and production inspired work for me. No matter how your imagination puts them to use, their libraries can do the same for you.
I use the midi patterns to learn...
By Ivan Sifrim on Sunday, November 12, 2017 | Verified Purchase
I think of music as a combination of science and art. With this product, Tony exposes some of the science of music that allows us to make beautiful art. I use the midi patterns to learn tried and tested patterns and as inspiration to go outside the box. You can only go outside the box when you know exactly what's inside. This product is also wide in range, allowing you to study a variety of styles. I highly recommend this product to anyone interested in dissecting music in order to understand it.

After a inspiration block for a few months, I wanted some good midi for my home studio to help me create new songs. Let's face it folks , creating songs to a stale click track is not a very insperational way to make new music.... These patterns help me create timeless songs I'm extreamly proud of!!...... Very well originized upon delivery...... Not robotic or fake sounding.......These patterns have the " human " touch.....
Thank you thank you thank you

They let my musicians know what I want.

Awhile ago I bought the Funk and Latin-Salsa libraries, and I'm very satisfied with their patterns. There are plenty of them with a lot of great variety.
In my opinion, the libraries are a real bargain, being very helpful to me. They quickly provide the right groove to start inspired work on my own songs and arrangements, which nearly always spring from the groove.
As cue tracks for my live rhythm track sessions, they let my musicians know what I want without a lot of verbal explanation!
Thanks Tony, I'm happy to spread the good word about your products.
Great song writing tool. Work great with Superior Drummer 2
By Trevor Ferkler on Thursday, November 2, 2017 | Verified Purchase
I ordered the metal/punk midi library a few months back. It turned out to be a great song writing tool. There's a ton of clips and they are all easy to edit and customize.
You will definitely find what you need as far as mid tempo to fast galloping beats along with double bass and blast beats if that's what you are looking for.
The midi files worked great with superior drummer 2. If needed, I would definitely use some of their other midi libraries in the future.

These midi libraries are some of the best I have used. Extremely well done covering a variety of genres. The phrases and loops are exceptional. The Blues and Rock midi drum loops hit the flavor of the blues tunes to a tee. I feel like I am jamming with the greats.
The Piano 4 Chord progressions is simply amazing. The chords are perfect to get you in the mind set of writing creative material. Especially for me since Piano is my weakest instrument.
I use these loops in my songwriting regularly.

I’ve been a fan of ambient music for years and never found grooves that worked for me. I stumbled across your site and couldn’t believe that there was a great library of Loops. Very human sounding and groovy. These are not loops my friend, they are gold. Absolutely brilliant. It’s so inspiring to work with. And thank you for offering free loops as well.
Very realistic drum tracks within Cakewalk
By Ronald Paxton on Monday, October 2, 2017 | Verified Purchase
I purchased both parts of Drum Patterns - Jazz and Big Band Vol 1 for use in my home studio when building backing tracks for practice and publication. The Common and Complex time signature midi patterns are a real time saver that help me build very realistic drum tracks within my Cakewalk production environment.
They are easy to select, import, tweak and tune ... and they produce professional results that I could not achieve on my own, if I tried to program them myself (jazz is just too complicated). I highly recommend Prosonic Studios midi libraries if you are looking for real value and usability.

They work great with both my EZ Drummer 2 and Native Instruments Studio Drummer plugins and are easy to use. I am looking forward to purchasing some of the other libraries.

Love the drum beats - the rock and metal loops and samples are just what you need for creating realistic songs. I am very glad to have discovered these libraries. As a fan of odd and complex time signature music (prog rock and metal) the libraries of triad and four voice chord progressions is also a highly valuable source of inspiration. I recommend trying prosonic libraries and injecting some new magic into your compositions and finished tracks. Great value for money and quality and service. Thank you prosonic.

First, let me say that I am a musician that primarily uses a keyboard to make music. So I am always looking for resources to improve the drum parts in my music.
I prefer to use MIDI rather than samples because they are easier to customize to my particular musical needs. The libraries from Prosonic Studios provide this flexibility. More so, they give me ideas musically that I would not have come up with on my own.
Simply put, these libraries are well-made and clearly organized for serious production. But most importantly, they are "Good" musically.

The amount of quality usable patterns is outstanding for the money.
I purchased the Techno & House midi pack. i was building a live hybrid hardware and computer semi improv Techno set. It is not a genre i usually produce. So after grabbing a few of the free patterns, i saw the value at hand...
I was able to quickly build minimal to complex grooves easily. allowing me to focus on sound design and moving through my set... i new i had a solid drum foundation that would eliminate hours and hours of drum programing. Especially since i was purchasing these drums to spend less time in front of the computer and more time playing music.

This is a fine collection of meticulously assembled tracks that can serve as a solid foundation for writing and practice. Each style is recorded in multiple tracks making it easy to add and subtract individual instruments.
MIDI is really a good choice for percussion tracks, because they can be used with any samples you wish.
The feel of the tracks is realistic and stylistically appropriate, though it comes from a rock orientation. As a keyboard player, I am perfectly capable of hacking a simple rhythm track, but I am not about to waste a week perfecting it.
This collection makes it much easier to start with a clean rhythm so I can concentrate on the music.

I bought the Pop & Soft-Rock style MIDI phrase patterns to quickly help me bring in some drum beat/rhythms quickly to pop music arrangements/project I'm currently working on.
There's quite a number of patterns to choose from and it's almost certain that you'll find something close to what you have in mind. And the good thing is that since these are MIDI patterns, one can easily edit MIDI notes, add or delete notes to add some variety to the pattern or suit one's creative taste.
I appreciate the value for the money that the drum library offers. I use the patterns within Cakewalk Sonar X3 (Studio version) and sometimes with XLN Addictive Drums and Session drums (within Cakewalk).

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...

I have used ready-made midi drum libraries from Prosonic for backing tracks and recordings and have never been disappointed with the results.

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...
By Stephen Tomporowski on Friday, May 26, 2017 | Verified Purchase
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 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.

Tremendous value, they're excellent patterns...
By Gregory Besaw on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 | Verified Purchase
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.

The midi selections are great!
As a songwriter they do just what I need them to do and perform outstandingly across a myriad of platforms.
These are great files! I am sorry I waited so long to find them but happy I have them!
I have used them to create patterns, intro, chorus, verses, and everything else in between.

These are exceptionally well crafted libraries that give you great value for your money. It gave me inspiration that I needed. I hope that you too dig in your treasury to get your hands on Tony Pappas excellent work.
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.
This pack really delivers quality.

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).

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.
"I use these midi drum beats every time I practice. I even used a few on my new album Intergalactic Highway
