The Progressive Metal MIDI pack was performed by Jay Postones of TesseracT and is loosely based around his own catalogue with the band. Expect a collection where the complexity of fusion, the subtlety of jazz and the raw, unfiltered power of metal intertwine to a form a polyrhythmic alloy of hard-hitting, ghost note-riddled sophistication. These are drum foundations pushed to the limit of technicality, performed with razor-sharp finesse by one of the world’s premier progressive metal drummers.


• Drum grooves and fills inspired by modern progressive metal
• Performed by Jay Postones of TesseracT
• 4/4 and 6/8 in straight feel
• More than 400 individually played files
