NOTE 1: Raw MIDI can be used with all DAWs and all ToonTrack Drum software.

Reaper Session Compatibility: Reaper V6+ for both Mac & Windows 

MIDI & Toontrack Presets Compatible with: All DAWs that support the use of Toontrack virtual drums.  

About the Beats: These beats were created specifically for Wetlands. However, with the ability to use the MIDI blocks in a somewhat interchangeable fashion, seeing as the amount of rhythmic diversity in this type of music is somewhat narrow. You should be able to move the blocks around to create many new compositions for your own music.  

Toontrack Kit Compatibility: While these beats were designed attempting to ensure the greatest compatibility with other Toontrack kits, some beats may still have to be modified to work with other kits as not every kit in the ToonTrack lineup has been tested. There are 4 presets available for the most popular kits. These presets are designed as starting places, but may suffice for end use by novice users.
