Toontrack has announced the release of Rythme Sauvage, a drum MIDI pack by Mario Duplantier of Gojira.

By molding disparate elements of classic, progressive and extreme metal, the brand of sound that Gojira represents has lent them a position as one of the forerunners in today’s metal scene. One key ingredient behind the monster that has become Gojira is the incomparable drumming of Mario Duplantier – an inventive, layered and highly expressive combination of refined finesse, technicality and savage power.

All of this is what Mario brings to the Rythme Sauvage MIDI pack. Loosely based around the Gojira catalogue as well as several all-new compositions, he delivers a collection of grooves that expresses the whole range in tempo, emotion and complexity. Be it classic or progressive metal, heavy rock or fusion, this is the perfect set of grooves for any writer.

Rythme Sauvage features

  • Drum grooves and fills inspired by primarily ‘70s classic rock music.
  • Played by professional session drummer.
  • A total of 319 individually played files.
  • 4/4 in straight and or swing feel.
  • Tempos ranging from 78 BPM to 178 BPM.
  • Song structure categorization (intro, verse, pre-chorus, chorus, bridge, fills).

The Rythme Sauvage packs is available for EZdrummer, EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer 2, priced at 25 EUR.
