After months of work I am proud to bring forth another free MIDI collection. This is a collection of Caribbean influenced beats. In studying the different music styles and rhythms of the Caribbean I made 63 different MIDI drum patterns. This pack has beats from Moombahton, Reggaeton, Dancehall, and Reggae.
I’ve put this library together in such a way you can just drag and drop the MIDI’s into your DAW of choose. This way you can drop them in quickly and start writing out new beats and songs.
The MIDI library is free to those who join the Subaqueous mailing list.
