Platinum Samples: Bobby Jarzombek Multi-Format Metal MIDI Groove Library

Bobby Jarzombek Multi-Format Metal MIDI Groove Library

Platinum Samples is pleased to announce the release of their Bobby Jarzombek Multi-Format Metal MIDI Groove Library featuring over 1,670 MIDI files (over 3,430 bars of unquantized grooves) formatted for BFD2®, BFD Eco®, EZDrummer®, EZplayer®, Superior Drummer 2.0®, Addictive Drums®, Cakewalk® Session DrummerTM as well as General MIDI which can be used with any GM compatible drum software or hardware.

Tired of working with an uninspiring drum machine or canned grooves that makes your chunky riffs sound flat and lame? The Bobby Jarzombek library includes 24 skull ripping complete performances played by a world-class metal drummer that will kick your songs up to a whole new level. You’ll be amazed at the precise brutal double bass work and killing hands and feet combinations played in straight, triplet and swing feels at tempos ranging from 92 to a blistering 298 BPM. Organized as crushing full pieces and separated into shorter loops of metal mayhem, these grooves won’t just kick your ass – they’ll make you cry for your momma too.

Best known for his 10-year tenure with the HALFORD band, featuring legendary JUDAS PRIEST vocalist Rob Halford, Bobby Jarzombek is also currently the drummer for progressive metal pioneers FATES WARNING, long running New York City metal institution RIOT, and former SKID ROW front man, Sebastian Bach. Making his recording debut with JUGGERNAUT on 'Baptism Under Fire' in 1986, the San Antonio, TX native has also toured and recorded with SPASTIC INK, ICED EARTH, DEMONS & WIZARDS, ROB ROCK, JOHN WEST, and PAINMUSEUM, among others.

Jarzombek just wrapped up a six-month world tour with HALFORD in support of their latest studio effort, 'Made of Metal.'

Platinum Samples are one of the foremost producers of drum samples in the world, with over 50 years of experience in the professional music industry. Bobby Jarzombek recorded the Bobby Jarzombek Metal MIDI Groove Library over a two-day session on a Yamaha DTXtremeIII Special electronic drum set.

Optimized for 1 Kick, 1 Snare, 2 Rack Toms, 1 Floor Tom, 1 Hihat, 3 Crash Cymbals & 1 Ride Cymbal

I can't get the audio demos to load at all. I'm on my Vista laptop running Firefox 3.613. I reloaded the page 3 times but nothing ever loads in the player.

Yeah, that's what I was getting. Sometime it loads after a time, other times it doesn't at all.
