  • Categories and Loops

    This award-winning collection of beats and individual percussion parts has become the backbone of the Twiddly.Bits series, used by people as varied as film composers to First Grade teachers around the world.

    Drums & Percussion is the industry standard library of rhythmic material whose component parts can be used time and time again- using different sounds, in different contexts, and at different tempos - always sounding fresh, vibrant, and, most importantly, real.

    From simple 8-beat and 16-beat grooves with custom fills, to more demanding grooves in weird time signatures (5/4, 7/4, 6/8, and 7/8 are available), or perhaps just some beautifully played hand percussion (congas and bongos), shakers, tambourine parts, triangles, this collection covers enough staple items (snare and cymbal rolls, paradiddles, and more) along with flashes of rhythmic inspiration to last a lifetime.

    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.

    Motif Versions

    Automatically included in the download are versions of this product saved in 'Pattern' format for all models of Motif. When you load the library into a Motif you will get a series of Patterns named according to type (Tambourines, Congas, 44 Rock etc). On most Motifs they will load with just Track 1 active so just hit the play button and you'll hear the beat. It will loop automatically. Select other Tracks to hear those in turn.

    You can re-voice them, play them at any tempo, cut and caste them into existing Songs or Patterns, or just be inspired and just jam along... with Gavin Harrison or Bill Bruford!
