Toontrack has recently released a new MIDI pack featuring a collection of drum grooves and fills inspired by pop music fro the ’60s through to today: The Pop Playbook MIDI.

If you’re looking for a foundational collection of tried-and-true grooves and fills for all your general pop songwriting needs, this is it. Inspired by some of the most iconic artists, songs and drummers from the ’60s through to now, it will take you on a wild seven-decade-long ride around the world and back again.

Honing in on variation rather than parts, this MIDI pack features 30 songs, each covering five or more grooves as well as the essential fills to go with them. Expect anything from the hard-hitting, funky and upbeat down to the subtle and the laid-back.

As songwriters, we all need a creative haven. This is your new A-Z of pop beats to turn to when inspiration strikes just as much as when you’re drawing blanks. Time to open up your new pop playbook and get going.

The MIDI pack is available from Toontrack for 29 USD/EUR.
