Rock Essentials

Rock Essentials brings you the drum grooves from a time when real rock-stars roamed the Earth, and multi-platinum-selling albums and headbanging stadium concerts were a reality. Spanning over four decades of rock, this expansion includes in- your-face blues-rock, heavy uncompromising hard-rock and epic rock ballads. From incredibly paced rhythms, aggressive midtempo parts to hard-edged fills, Rock Essentials covers everything you need to create the perfect drum tracks for memorable solos and catchy choruses.
The 10 exclusively recorded Styles range over different tempi and rhythms that can instantly be played on the pattern pads. Choose from the many included intros, main parts, fills and endings, and control the complexity and intensity of each beat from within Groove Agent.

Rock Essentials has it all. Just rock and do it loud!
