Percussion and added rhythm can really add a distinct flavor to your music. Over the years I have been cultivating my own collection of Latin percussion in MIDI. This lets me drag and drop it into Live, or any DAW, and create new percussion parts. Super fast and easy.
This is a collection of 85 unique Latin rhythms in MIDI.

I have also added a Live Set with all the MIDI laid out in clips. I used Abelton Live 9.6. If you are in live try using the Vintage Drum Machine, Percussion Pack I released for free. I’ve been making some awesome sounds with that combo.
This collection is by donation / free. If you want to support the creation of future tools and resources, then consider throwing in a few bucks.
If you want a taste of what these rhythms can sound like, then check out this track Invoking. I used some of these MIDI in creating the percussion elements. It really added a depth and character to the track.
