If you make metal music, you know how important speed and power can be in your performances. We all know that anybody can program or speed up their played MIDI tracks to light speed tempos, but very few can achieve any sort of realism or finesse without spending insane amounts of time and literally ripping their hair out. This is where our good friend Dirk Verbeuren comes in.
Maybe you’ve heard of Dirk? He’s the powerhouse drummer behind bands like Soilwork and Scarve. He’s also the mastermind behind the original “Library of the Extreme Blasts & Fills” MIDI pack released by Toontrack earlier this year.
Welcome to the second installment in Dirk Verbeurens Library of the Extreme:
"Library of the Extreme - Death & Thrash"
The new ”Library of the Extreme - Death & Thrash” has all the beats that youd need in between those from the ”Library of the Extreme - Blasts & Fills”, meaning the Skank beats, the Carpet Rolls, the D-Beats, all the double-bass stuff, the fills and any and all things beyond. Together with “Library of the Extreme - Blasts & Fills”, this pack makes a really unique encyclopedia of metal beats!
This MIDI pack is not for the faint of heart, or the musically meek. We’re talking about a collection of MIDI grooves, played by a world-class metal drummer - grooves that will pummel your tracks into oblivion. This is the perfect marriage of speed and power.
