Free MIDI Drum Grooves

Programming MIDI drums can be a pain! I know.. To make the process easier I have compiled a bunch of grooves from the drummers of my favorite bands into groove packs.

These free MIDI drum groove packs were created to spark inspiration in your song writing and let you have fun with grooves from your favorite drummers.

The grooves are from actual songs and thus, I recommend you tweak them before using them on any of your recordings. Doing so will develop your drum programming skills!

Boost Your Inspiration

I personally get major bursts of inspiration when jamming over drum tracks. This is what sparked the idea for creating these groove packs.

What’s in the pack

Each pack consists of grooves, fills, intros, hits and counts. The grooves are arranged according to groove type, tempo and in some cases time signature as well.

Fully Compatible With Any MIDI Drum Sampler

Installation instructions

Below are instructions on how to install the JJ Groove Packs on the most popular drum samplers.

Please visit our support page is you have questions or need any help!

1. Download the JJ Groove Pack and unzip it. You will then find two folders;

“<name of groove pack> (JJ Groove Packs)” AND “SSD <name of groove pack>.lib”

Both folders contain the same MIDI files, the “SSD” folders are just named differently so they can be accessed in the SSD 5 groove library.

2. To play the MIDI grooves first load up your DAW and drum sampler. After that, locate the JJ MIDI Groove Pack you downloaded and drag the MIDI files into the audio editing pane.

3. You can also copy the JJ MIDI Groove Pack folders directly to your drum samplers groove libraries. The packs are fully compatible with popular samplers such as GetGood Drums, SSD 5, EZ Drummer 2, and Superior Drummer 3.

This is the recommended way to use these MIDI packs as it allows you to easily preview the grooves and makes your workflow more efficient.

You can find instructions for integrating the packs with GetGood Drums, SSD 5, EZ Drummer 2, and Superior Drummer 3 below.

JJ MIDI Groove Packs are mapped in General MIDI (GM). If the grooves sound off on your sampler, MIDI mapping is most likely the reason why.

The groove packs are good to go out of the box with Toontrack products (EZ Drummer, Superior Drummer) as they are mapped in GM.

Instructions on how to remap GetGood Drums and SSD 5 are found below. Don’t worry; it’s very quick and simple since there are readymade presets for it! All you have to do is load them.

The MIDI mapping chart used in the packs is found in the manual (included in each pack).

The pack also includes a GM mapping preset for SSD 5.
