Platinum Samples and John Emrich are pleased to announce the release of their Military Cadence Multi-
Format MIDI Groove Library. Military Cadence features drum line grooves, snare rolls and a full
collection of rudiments formatted for BFD2Â®, BFD EcoÂ®, EZDrummerÂ®, EZplayerÂ®, Superior Drummer
2.0Â®, Addictive DrumsÂ®, CakewalkÂ® Session Drummerâ„˘ as well as General MIDI which can be used with
any GM compatible drum software or hardware.
Military Cadence contains a collection of 285 live, military cadence grooves and rudiments recorded as a
real performance on an electronic drum set. This definitive collection features the first really usable
military band style patterns for MIDI.
Military Cadence was composed and recorded by John Emrich, a retired Chief Musician from the U.S.
Navy Band in Washington, DC. Hard to program, drum rudiments and rolls have a feel that can only be
achieved by correctly playing them live. The library features grooves in 2/4, 4/4 and 6/8. The standard
rudiments and snare drum rolls are also presented.
Platinum Samples and John Emrich are two of the foremost producers of drum samples in the world, with
over 50 years of experience in the professional music industry, and now they have turned their attention to
developing MIDI Grooves. Military Cadence was produced and performed by John Emrich on a Yamaha
DTX900 electronic drum set. No quantization, mouse clicks, or pastes were used â€“ we leave that to you.
Use this as the starting point for all your military cadence needs, as well as a creative catalyst for other
musical styles. Military Cadence is like having your own personal military drum line.
Military Cadence is available now as a download from Platinum Samplesâ€™ website and includes all formats
