    Recorded in Rio de Janeiro by top Brazilian drummer Alfredo Dias Gomes, Brazilian Rhythms was produced by Richard Court (the Brazilian singing star "Ritchie"), and comprises an incomparable selection of authentic Brazilian beats.

    From classic Bossa Nova and Sambas to the Afro-Brazilian Afoxe popularised by Gilberto Gil and Morais Moreira, to the dynamic Carnival favorite Frevo, lilting Maracatu, and Xote ("Shot-tch") the collection lets you savor the spirit of Brazil from the comfort of your own PC.

    Twenty-three separate rhythms, each played over twelve or sixteen bars in an evolving, developing style. This allows you to use a longer beat that changes, or snip out and loop a two or four bar groove for a tighter, more consistent pattern.

    The patterns have not bee non quantized, though they are perfectly in time. Additional fill or 'call' files have been provided specifically for the Olodum and Samba beats.

    SMF Type 1 file format. Guaranteed to work with all DAWs and hardware sequencers that can load/import .MIDs: Cubase (all versions, including LE and Sequel), GarageBand, Pro Tools, Logic, Acid, Reason, Ableton Live, FL Studio, Live, and Cakewalk (all version), and with all VSTs or synth sound sources.
