Toontrack has announced the release of Basic Rock Fills MIDI, a follow-up to the popular Basic Rock MIDI that was released earlier in the year.
The Basic Fills pack focuses entirely on the one thing you can never get enough of: fills. The little twists and turns that accentuate, ornate or make for smooth transitions in your songs – the bits and pieces that make your music elevate and transcend.
“I sometimes find that drummers over-complicate things and dramatize their fills too much. I am not a complicated drummer and never aspired to be. I don’t want to get in the way of the song, just make it lift off where it truly needs to and harness it in between”, says drummer Martin Kristoffersson.
Basic Rock Fills MIDI features
Drum fills MIDI suitable for any type of modern rock.
Categorized in different songs.
Short fills with lead-ins, long fills with lead-ins & single fills.
Halftime / midtempo / uptempo in 4/4 and 6/8 straight and/or swing feel.
