Platinum Samples releases Military Cadence MIDI Groove Library

Platinum Samples Military Cadence

Platinum Samples has released Military Cadence, a collection of MIDI cadence grooves played by John Emrich.

Military Cadence is a collection of grooves in 2/4, 4/4, and 6/8 time signatures. This collection also includes common Rolls and Rudiments. Rudiments are the foundation of the drumming vocabulary. Every serious drum instructor has received a set of hand written rudiments from their teachers and continue to pass them along to new students. We have included these sheets as well.

Military Cadence features

  • Played live and recorded by John Emrich, a retired Chief Musician with the US Navy Band in Washington, DC.
  • Includes 56 cadence grooves, 39 snare rolls and 22 additional rudiments.
  • Played in 2/4, 4/4 and 6/8.
  • Includes 285 MIDI files of unquantized grooves.
  • Formatted for BFD2®, EZdrummer®, Superior Drummer®, Addictive Drums®, Cakewalk® Session Drummer™ & General MIDI Standard MIDI Files (all included).

Military Cadence is available to purchase for $19.99 USD.
