Does anyone know where to get drum loop/fill midi files online. I figure with the samll size of MIDI files there has to be free resources out there. I really need some blues shuffle loops/fills as well as ethnic and of course standard rock.
I recently ordered giga Accoustic Essentials (which supposedly has great drum samples) and am now trying to get some loops/fills to test it out with as well as to compose with.
I noticed a couple people are interested in this topic. I recently found some awesome midi files. I paid $50 for drumtrax which you can get at www.drumtrax.com. Cakewalk\'s Session Drummer is a actually a very small subset of drumtrax. The complete drumtrax has tons of great stuff. I really do feel it was very well spent $50. Originally I didn\'t want to spend a dime, but when you see how much stuff it comes with you\'ll see what I mean. And all MIDI was recorded by pros on electronic kits, so there is a lot of human feel. With the right playback system (I use gigastudio with some giga cd\'s) drumtrax will make your drums sound as close to the real thing as you would need!
Are you Cakewalk or Sonar users? there are a few good MIDI-fill samples (DRUM folder) or use the Plug-ins program called Session Drummer™ http://www.cakewalk.com/Products/SR/MIDIFX.html
If not, I could share with you a few of them. (only MIDI files, not the program).
Hope this helps,

Have you tried JAMMER or pg musics BAND IN A BOX ?
Jammer was a freebie on the coverdisk of Computer Music (www.computermusic.co.uk)
im sure they do back issue sales.
I use it to write my drum patterns/ export to a midi file, import into logic,nudge it about a bit...well you get the drift..
(it has also stopped my drummer-bud from feeling like he needs to \'grow\' some extra limbs!)
Hope this helps
