AOR Grooves MIDI

Expansion Packs by Toontrack

Rock Sophistication

A profound collection of timeless rock grooves – inspired by the greats of AOR.

When bands like Boston, Journey, Toto, The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan rose to international fame in the late ’70s, someone had already coined the divider Adult Oriented Rock (AOR) to set this new, lush and often technically inclined genre apart from its more rowdy sibling, classic rock. With its huge hooks, slick, layered productions and musical prowess, it became the new, widely accepted soundtrack to not only mainstream USA, but the world. Suddenly, rock wasn’t all about being loud. Now, songwriting, performance and skill were front and center, not least in terms of drummers. Players like Jeff Porcaro, Bernard Purdie and Steve Gadd would go on to inspire a whole new generation of drummers around the world.

This collection of grooves takes off in the wake of this era – with a strong foothold in classic rock, but with that “session musician” quality that often signifies the genre. Expect sturdy, timeless grooves with edge, nuance and finesse. This MIDI pack gives you the perfect foundation to any rock track where you want the drums to have attitude – without being overpowering.
