Basic, traditional jazz and swing drum MIDI variations. In jazz, there is no given set of rules. Rather a canvas on which you, as a musician, paint with broad strokes to create an ever-shifting musical landscape. This goes true especially for the drums. Even if they’re the focal point of the beat, they constantly shift, move and feed off the spur of the moment, a creative urge or an unbridled notion. Jazz is the art of musical storytelling where the instruments all speak their own language, but with one coherent voice. Welcome to the chapter about drums. Works with EZdrummer, EZdrummer 2, Superior Drummer 2 and Superior Drummer 3 (optimized for 1 kick, 1 snare, 2 toms, 2 floor toms, 2 crash cymbals, 1 china, 1 ride cymbal).
