Hey there fellow “metal heads” or home recording enthusiasts, today I wanted to share with you some of my “metal midi drum loops” I have created, to make YOUR home recording or creative journey easier and time efficient for creating drum tracks with the famous “MIDI DRUMS“. This little pack is part of the loops that are included in the Metal Midi Drum Loops Vol.1 (which is soon to be released!) metal midi drum loops free download


I am a metal head (Metal Scream Tutorial) that is obsessed with metal drums and even though I have played guitar for over a decade now, I have picked some drum ideas up and listened to ALOT of Metal, Metalcore, Death Metal, Deathcore, Hardcore and the other “CORE’s” that are out there. I have found certain drum beats or loops to be the simple foundation of a METAL song that sounds “nice” or “technical” to the fan’s or artist’s ear. metal midi drum loops free download

At the end of the day we most probably have Superior Drummer 2, Steven Slate Drums or Kontakt, other wise you wouldn’t be here reading this post on metal midi drum loops free download. As a frustrated music maker I feel that there is not enough “Real Metal” loops that you can just drag in and it doesn’t; A. Sound out of time or B. The velocities are NOT realistic enough and thus wasting time tweaking every hit.

So hence why I have done the work of creating these loops that are at least more real sounding with good velocities and timing

Let’s Face It

Most of us are NOT “wealthy” enough to buy the best drum kit for recording at home or to go into the studio and pay a session drummer $$. (Or rent the place for the day as well as mixing and mastering and etc). WE GET BY…But by having a library of GREAT midi loops is a good attitude to have, because the more metal midi loops you have for drum tracks the more creativity and ideas is available to YOU on the fly! and when you are “in the zone” MUSIC is born and a drum track sounds “real” or as we would like to replicate a drum kit mic’d up in a studio.

So now we know WHY we want metal midi drum loops that will benefit us for creativity, you should listen and interpret what YOU like as an artist to see what YOU like and “don’t” like with loops. The best part is…you CAN change WHATEVER notes or hits you want on YOUR metal midi drum kit.

I appreciate you taking the time to invest into your passion and see if you in fact “like” what my take on MIDI METAL DRUMMING is and I hope you let me know what you think of these Metal Midi Drum Loops. metal midi drum loops free download

Please WATCH this video I made with some midi loops to show you an idea of what can be accomplished with MIDI and how you get “that” drum sound you are always chasing.

So what am I downloading?

In this sample pack I made some grooves, offbeat, double kick variations and some fills to get an idea of what is to be expected in Metal Midi Drum Loops Vol.1. I have edited the velocities of every midi note to sound as “real” as a drum performance would be if it were in a track and I also have created a drum map so you know what your hitting or writing in the Midi window of your DAW.

Now also have in mind that when using these or any midi loops, the drum samples are VERY important because without great recorded drum samples you could have the best midi groove but if the samples are not recorded well the drum track will not sound as good as you would like.

So invest in some METAL DRUM SAMPLES or download some that will get you in the right direction of proper time efficiency and closer to your goal whatever that might be.

Well I hope you get some great use out of these midi loops and comment or SUBSCRIBE to my Youtube channel for updates on the Metal Midi Drum Loops Vol.1 to be released.Good Luck!

    I think I’ve just found my holy grail! I create my best riffs and songs from drum patterns, I couldn’t find a drummer that records ideas at home. I think this is it!!! If this turns out into proper songs we will be in touch to discuss credits and whatnot.

    Thank you!
