GET GROOVING WITH SIMEN & BAARD

What do you get when you give an e-drum kit to two of the best drummers in Scandinavia and lock them in a room for several weeks? An absolutely mind-bending groove pack, that’s what! Beyond Prog Grooves is the result of two ridiculously talented drummers, (and best friends) Simen Sandnes (Shining) and Baard Kolstad (Leprous), working together to develop one of THE coolest midi groove packs to have ever been created.

With 350+ grooves in this midi pack it has all the variety you would expect from two prog masterminds. It’s got tons of polyrhythms, heaps of odd meters and crazy fills, all while grooving super hard. These guys aren’t you’re typical drummers. They’re chameleons behind the kit with an understanding of the instrument and sense of musicality that shines through in their grooves. If you’re looking for a creative spark of frenetic, musical, groovy, proggy goodness, look no further.

HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT GGD

Simon Grove
Producer & Mix Engineer (Protest The Hero, Plini and Intervals)
One Kit Wonder is a no-brainer if you’re after instant mix-ready drum sounds. A crucial tool for the modern songwriter.

Jeff Dunne
Producer and Mix Engineer (Emmure, Cane Hill, Crossfaith)
Whether I’m aiming to reinforce or replace the shells of a recorded kit, add depth and space with room samples, or program a realistic sounding part from scratch, I know GGD will cover all my bases. The explosive room sounds and perfectly tuned toms are worth the price of admission on their own, and the Kontakt UI makes it a breeze to set up in any project.

Jeremy Reeves
Producer (Bruno Mars, Foster The People, Justin Bieber)
GGD has quickly become part of my go to Arsenal for acoustic drums. The detail in these drum samples, as well of the comprehensive easy to use interface, makes for quick and efficient drum tracks in any genre artist that im working with. You would be doing yourself a disservice if these drums were not part of your production.
