Toontrack has launched its latest drum MIDI pack Acoustic Songwriter Grooves, a collection of grooves and fills tailored for acoustic pop, Americana, indie, folk and more.

In a toned-down and acoustic arrangement, the drums can’t hide behind a wall of guitars, massive layers of instrumentation or larger-than-life type of production setups. In this bare-all setting, every stroke, articulation and grace note is weighed in, sized up and counted for by the ear. But that’s not all, the groove needs to be just right and offer an extra measure of sophistication in order to not eat away at what matters the most: the song. With all that in mind, and take our word for it, keeping it simple doesn’t take the lesser player – rather the opposite.

The Acoustic Songwriter Grooves MIDI pack features a comprehensive collection of material tailored to work seamlessly in any intimate, organic-sounding and acoustic song scenario. Expect inventive train beats, basic backbeats, subtle shuffles and countless fills performed with an extra amount of detail and delicacy. Welcome to the heartbeat of many of your next acoustic pop, Americana, indie and folk songs.

Performed by a professional session player, the MIDI pack for EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 3 features in excess of 450 individually played grooves/fills.

Acoustic Songwriter Grooves is available from Toontrack, priced 29 USD/EUR.
