Across 20 Different Genres

Ambient & Downtempo

Ambient is a catch-all term for any kind of music wherein the atmosphere is more important than any specific element.

Suspended triads are very common, both sus2 and sus4 types.

The open-ended, undefined nature of these sounds make them great choices for ambient music.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Big Room & Progressive House

Big Room & Progressive House is a staple of modern electronic music. 

80-90% of the time, these chord progressions are made of triads—simple major and minor chords. 

Extended chords do appear from time to time, usually in the form of 4-note chords, such as: maj7, m7, and add9 chords.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Classical

The Classical genre is music composed from, roughly, the medieval period until the mid-20th century.

The most common 4-note chord, by far, is the dominant seventh chord. 

Diminished chords are also found allover the place, acting as passing chords, connecting one chord to the next.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Disco

Disco music came into being and took over during the ‘60s.

Major key progressions often contain one, or more, modal chords. 

Extended chords appear frequently. Major sevenths, minor sevenths, dominant sevenths, and half-diminished chords are most common.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Folk & Indie

Folk music is, almost by definition, acoustic in nature and has been strongly influenced by western culture, politics, and instruments.

Diatonic progressions made of triads constitute the majority of folk harmony. 

The natural chords of a key can appear in any order, and progressions are often written through pure experimentation.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Funk

Get a bunch of people together, put on some great funk music, and if someone complains, they aren’t your friend.

Even though funk music is all about the groove, the chords that do show up are anything but simple.

All manner of jazz chords can be found in funk: 7ths, 9ths, 11ths, 13ths, altered chords, and chromatic movements are all common.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Future Bass & Melodic Trap

Future bass encompasses several styles but is generally known for its prominent use of wobbly poly-synths, big bass, dubstep influenced drums, jazzy chords, and bright melodies.

Maj7, maj9, m7, m9, and maj6/9 chords are among the most common. The chord that shows up most often, however, is the add9 chord.

Modal chords are also used regularly because of their sophisticated, and sometimes surprising, sound.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Gospel

Gospel a fusion of church hymns, jazz, classical, blues, and R&B that features incredible arrangements and top-notch musicianship.

Triads, extended chords, modal chords, and the inversions of all these commonly mingle and combine.

Very dense chords—6 or even 7-note chords—can be found.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.


Hip Hop & Rap

Hip-hop has been one of the most popular genres of music for decades.

An emphasis on drums and bass is a uniting factor, while almost everything else is subject to change.

Chords can come from the jazz world, R&B, pop, or even classical.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

House & Deep House

Off-beat hats, four-on-the-floor kicks, and punctuated bass lines—these are the elements that unite the myriad sub-genres of house music.

Chords with 4, 5, and 6 notes are not uncommon. 

Specifically, the inclusion of the 9th within a chord is commonplace—maj9, m9, add9, madd9, maj6/9, etc.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Jazz & Lo-Fi

Jazz is one of America’s greatest contributions to the art world.

It is very rare to see any triads in jazz music. 

Normally, the closest you will find are 7th chords (maj7, m7, 7) and 6th chords (maj6, m6).

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.



Latin & Reggaeton

Latin music is a label that includes music from Latin America, Spain, and Portugal.

Almost across the board, Latin genres favour a major V chord when playing in minor keys. 

In genres where the harmony is fairly simple, there is an abundance of progressions that only use I, IV, and V chords (i, iv, and V in minor keys) in endless patterns.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Neo-Soul

Neo-soul represents a fusion of soul music, R&B, hip-hop, and jazz that is highly musical while remaining laid-back and accessible.

Triads are rare, if not nonexistent, within neo-soul. 

Extended harmony is crucial to the deep emotional quality that is synonymous with the genre.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Pop & Future Pop

Whatever music tops the radio charts could be considered pop by definition and modern pop is its own genre with specific boundaries.

Though extended chords are not absent from pop, there is no doubt that triads reign supreme. 

Diatonic major and minor chords are used in almost every conceivable configuration.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

R&B

The origins of R&B are truly in the ‘40s and ‘50s when the name—Rhythm and Blues—really applied to the music.

Various kinds of seventh chords, as well as ninths, appear frequently—these give R&B its jazzy flavour.

Modal chords are quite common, especially in major keys.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.


Reggae

Reggae was originally the product of Jamaica in the late ‘60s, but has now spread globally through its endlessly infectious offbeat rhythm and fat bass lines.

In both major and minor keys, triads constitute nearly every chord heard in the genre.

When extended chords do appear, they are usually limited to maj7, m7, and dominant 7th types.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Rock & Metal

Electric guitar. There has scarcely been another instrument so defining of an entire musical realm than the electric guitar within rock music.

Rock’s origin is within the blues, so it stands to reason that blues harmony permeates almost all rock chord progressions in some way.

Modal chords are ever-present. bII , bIII , bV , bVI , and bVII chords appear continuously.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Soul

Soul music—an African-American invention of the 1950s and ‘60s—became famous for its funky grooves, bluesy inflection, catchy vocal melodies, and a generally positive, upbeat vibe.

Soul uses a fairly even mix of triads and seventh chords, sometimes intermingling and sometimes remaining with their own kind.

In both major and minor keys, the full range of diatonic chords (except the diminished chord) are commonly used.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Techno & Melodic Techno

Since its birth in Detroit during the ‘80s, techno has evolved and fractured into several sub-genres and styles that can sound drastically different from each other on first blush.

A common trend in electronic music, techno included, is to favour minor keys over major keys.

It is common for chords to last a very long time in genres like techno. Each chord is its own world, full of motion and texture.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.


Trance & Psytrance

Clearly, as the name suggests, trance music developed with the purpose of inducing trance-like states of joy, euphoria, and bliss through extended compositions that build over time.

Extended chords—add9, maj9, m9, and m7add11 chords in particular—are the main harmonic tools used to achieve this goal.

Modal chords are surprisingly rare. Instead, trance favours diatonic progressions which are more familiar and easy to digest.

We've included them all for you in the Unison MIDI Blueprint.

Ambient & Downtempo

Ambient is a catch-all term for any kind of music wherein the atmosphere is more important than any specific element.

This can be achieved in many ways, though it is often done through the use of large reverbs and delay, soft or muted timbres, pad-style synths, and subtle textures that evolve over time.

Anything that adds to the expansive, spacious—even meditative—quality of the music is favoured.

Big Room & Progressive House

Big Room & Progressive House are a staple of modern electronic music.

Melodic intros feed into frenzied build-ups which release into huge drops.

This winning combination commands endless rotation in the club and festival scenes.


Classical

In a historical sense, “the classical period” refers to the period of time from 1750 to 1820.

However, when most people use the term “classical”, they are speaking about music composed from, roughly, the medieval period until the mid-20th century.

Disco

Disco music came into being during the ‘60s

Chords and melodies appear in the form of electric guitars, synths, strings, various horn arrangements, and electric pianos.


Folk & Indie

Folk music is, almost by definition, acoustic in nature.

Guitars and other stringed instruments reign, acting as the primary harmonic generators.

No fancy arrangements or effects are needed to dress up the music.

Funk

Get a bunch of people together, put on some great funk music, and if someone complains, they aren’t your friend.

Even though funk music is all about the groove, the melodies that do show up are anything but simple.


Future Bass & Melodic Trap

Future bass encompasses several styles but is generally known for its prominent use of wobbly poly-synths, big bass, dubstep influenced drums, jazzy chords, and bright melodies.

It is normally quite upbeat and exciting, almost light-hearted compared to many electronic genres.

Gospel

Some of the greatest pianists, organists, singers, bassists, drummers, and guitarists have come out of the gospel scene.

The music is a fusion of church hymns, jazz, classical, blues, and R&B that features incredible arrangements and top-notch musicianship.

Hip Hop & Rap

Hip-hop has been one of the most popular genres of music for decades.

During its formative years, it was characterized by sample-based production, rapping, swing rhythms, and a laid back vibe.

As the years went on, drums became heavier, bass became fatter, rhythms became more straight, and, in a large portion of hip-hop, the subject matter darkened to reflect inner-city life.

House & Deep House

Off-beat hats, four-on-the-floor kicks, and punctuated bass lines—these are the elements that unite the myriad sub-genres of house music.

What began in the 1980’s as an evolution of disco and drum machines, has gradually evolved into one of the most popular styles of electronic music.


Jazz & Lo-Fi

Jazz is one of America’s greatest contributions to the art world.

It’s fusion of African rhythmic and melodic sensibilities, with the harmonic language of the West, produced an extremely nuanced and complex form of music.

Jazz harmony is a massive subject full of logic, subtlety, and emotion.

Almost every possible combination of notes has found a home in this genre.

Latin & Reggaeton

Latin music is a label that includes music from Latin America, Spain, and Portugal.

Some of the genres under this label include bossa-nova, salsa, tango, bachata, flamenco, and reggaeton, amongst many more.

Some styles prefer simplicity, such as reggaeton music, and others gravitate towards complexity, like in bossa-nova.



Neo-Soul

Neo-soul represents a fusion of soul music, R&B, hip-hop, and jazz that is highly musical while remaining laid-back and accessible.

It often features a blend of acoustic and electronic production, mellow timbres, “slugging” beats, complex harmony, and smooth vocals.

The specific blending of R&B and jazz within neo-soul has yielded a unique style of harmony.


Pop & Future Pop

Pop—popular music—is both a meta-genre and a specific genre.

Whatever music tops the radio charts could be considered pop by definition.

The primary characteristics of contemporary pop include a strong focus on vocals, repeating song structures, simple harmony, and a fusion of acoustic and electronic elements.

In recent years, pop has borrowed heavily from hip-hop and electronic music in its structure and instrumentation.

R&B

The origins of R&B are truly in the ‘40s and ‘50s when the name—Rhythm and Blues—really applied to the music.

In the late ‘70s, however, a new breed of R&B began to emerge that incorporated elements of disco, soul, hip-hop, electronic music and the original R&B.

Over the years, this genre has developed into a smooth, jazzy, beat driven style that has found mass appeal.

Reggae

Reggae was originally the product of Jamaica in the late ‘60s, but has now spread globally through its endlessly infectious offbeat rhythm and fat bass lines.

Slower tempos, simple chords, horn sections, and a unique brand of drum beats and fills also contribute to the classic reggae sound.


Rock & Metal

Electric guitar. There has scarcely been another instrument so defining of an entire musical realm than the electric guitar within rock music.

Together with heavy drums, bass, and vocals, the core of rock has remained essentially unchanged for over 60 years.

Soul

Soul music—an African-American invention of the 1950s and ‘60s—became famous for its funky grooves, bluesy inflection, catchy vocal melodies, and a generally positive, upbeat vibe.

There is something very human in soul music, something powerful and connecting.

Techno & Melodic Techno

Since its birth in Detroit during the ‘80s, techno has evolved and fractured into several sub-genres and styles that can sound drastically different from each other on first blush.

Similar to house, the various types of techno are united in four-on-the-floor kicks, off-beat hi-hats, extended repetition, and heavy use of synths.

Trance & Psytrance

Clearly, as the name suggests, trance music developed with the purpose of inducing trance-like states of joy, euphoria, and bliss through extended compositions that build over time, culminating in a massive drop of pulsing synths and drums.

Modern trance music is interested in creating an emotional, energetic space to get lost in.

Hear Some Of The Unison Drum Blueprint Drums...

Ambient & Downtempo

In Ambient and Downtempo, the atmosphere is more important than any specific element.

The drum patterns in ambient & downtempo are there to create a vibe - the results are drum patterns that are expansive, spacious, naturally evolving, and even meditative...

Many times the final pattern is affected and processed to create a complex landscape of sound that supports the other more organic elements in the track.

Disco

Disco music came into being during the ‘60s, and laid the foundation for a large portion of modern dance genres. 

The drums in disco are pretty simple compared to those of other genres. The primary purpose is to relentlessly stomp the four-to-the-floor kick. and fill in space with the characteristic offbeat open hi-hat.

Even if Disco isn't your primary genre, you can use these patterns to lay the foundation for other tracks.

Dubstep

Hard-hitting drums that melt face, that's what Dubstep is all about. 

If you want to create drum patterns that cause a literal earthquake at whatever festival you are playing... Then the Unison MIDI Drum Blueprint is perfect for you.

Dubstep drums are centered around hard-hitting kicks, fat snares, and poly-rhythmic percussion that gets people moving, dancing, and shaking.

Drum & Bass

Drum & Bass patterns are powerful, complex, and are one of the fastest BPM genres to create... That makes them a unique challenge. 

The fast pace creates complex kick drum patterns, snares that can jump on-and-off beat, and hi-hats that are dynamic, unique, and move the entire track forward.

These Drum & Bass patterns will allow you to create the tracks you've always imagined yourself making.

Folk & Indie

Folk music is, almost by definition, acoustic in nature.

The drum patterns for folk and indie serve as the central heartbeat to bring more soul and movement to the music.

These drums are defined by an organic drumming style when played by a real drummer, and so are difficult to program on your own without advanced drum knowledge.

Funk

Funk music is all about the groove, and funk drummers are some of the best drummers of all time. 

Funk grooves are extremely complex, with polyrhythms all over the place. It's easy to mess them up - and up until now, it was almost impossible to program these in without a drum kit...

But when you get them right, the result is a groovy funk track that makes people want to move.

Future Bass & Melodic Trap

Future bass encompasses several styles but is generally known for its prominent use of compressed, punchy kick drums often with sub-bass underneath, wide snappy snares, and rolling hi-hats that create a catchy addictive groove.

It is normally quite upbeat and exciting, almost light-hearted compared to many electronic genres.

Gospel

Because gospel drums are played in a live setting, it's important for them to have a human feel. It's not just drum chops and fast linear patterns.

Programming gospel drums rely on having your velocity set correctly to make sure that the patterns sound organic and not robotic.

Hip Hop & Rap

Hip-hop has been one of the most popular genres of music for decades.

During its formative years, it was characterized by sample-based production, rapping, swing rhythms, and a laid back vibe.

As the years went on, the drums have become heavier, and the hi-hat and percussion patterns more complex. The rhythms became more straight, while still maintining a groove that can be slightly off-grid to feel truly organic.

House & Deep House

Off-beat hats, four-on-the-floor kicks, and punctuated bass lines—these are the elements that unite the myriad sub-genres of house music.

Deep house drum patterns sound deceptively simple at first glance, but it's the slight variations in the hi-hats...

The percussion, and having that perfect kick & clap pattern are the cornerstones of a great house track.

Jazz

Jazz is one of America’s greatest contributions to the art world.

It’s a fusion of African rhythmic and melodic sensibilities, with the harmonic language of the West, produced an extremely nuanced and complex form of music.

Jazz drums are a massive subject, with movies like Whiplash entirely dedicated to the genre. 

Programming Jazz drums on your own is almost impossible given the complexity, so this will be a huge win for you if you produce in this genre.

Latin & Reggaeton

Latin music is a label that includes music from Latin America, Spain, and Portugal.

Some of the genres under this label include bossa-nova, salsa, tango, bachata, flamenco, and reggaeton, amongst many more.

Some styles prefer simplicity, such as reggaeton music, and others gravitate towards complexity, like in bossa-nova.

Latin drums are characterized by the percussion, with complex poly-rhythms creating a dance-able groove that people can't resist.

Neo-Soul

Neo-soul represents a fusion of soul music, R&B, hip-hop, and jazz that is highly musical while remaining laid-back and accessible.

It often features a blend of acoustic and electronic production, mellow timbres, “slugging” beats, complex harmony, and smooth vocals.

The specific blending of R&B and jazz within neo-soul has yielded a unique style of drum programming that hovers from modern to lo-fi.

Pop & Future Pop

Pop—popular music—is both a meta-genre and a specific genre. Whatever music tops the radio charts could be considered pop by definition.

The primary characteristic of contemporary pop drum patterns is a strong focus on being playable on the radio. 

You often have electronic and acoustic drum elements and patterns mixed together, creating something that's challenging to replicate without years of practice and trial & error.

R&B

The origins of R&B are truly in the ‘40s and ‘50s when the name—Rhythm and Blues—really applied to the music.

In the late ‘70s, however, a new breed of R&B began to emerge that incorporated elements of disco, soul, hip-hop, electronic music and the original R&B.

Over the years, this genre has developed into a smooth, jazzy, beat-driven style that has found mass appeal.

Reggae

Reggae was originally the product of Jamaica in the late ‘60s, but has now spread globally through its endlessly infectious offbeat rhythm and fat bass lines.

In Reggae, the hi-hat can actually completely change the feel of the track. 

From a simple one-drop groove to variations of stepper and rocker beats - these Reggae MIDI drum patterns have a lot to offer your tracks.

Rock & Metal

Rock and metal drums can vary from simple to the most complex grooves and patterns out there.

The most important challenge you face when programming is how to make your drums realistic. 

Velocity, note-feel, swing, and even intentional rushing and dragging are all very common and often difficult to replicate without first-hand drumming experience.
