If your best friend is a Bass player and likes to practice any time you want, then these Grooves won’t be of much interest to you.  If instead, you have a hard time finding someone to practice with, when you want, Grooves are the next best thing.  These preset patterns were recorded simply to be fun to play along with. In FactoryKits and optionally in UserKits (see p.28 in the trapKAT manual or HERE) the rimPads 15, 16, 23, and 24, are used to control the GROOVES. The PERCUSSIVE GROOVES (selected by rimPad 16) use only drum and percussion sounds.  Therefore they will work with almost any sound source. The MELODIC GROOVES (selected by rimPad 15) will play on any GENERAL MIDI sound module.  The Melodic Grooves have more happening in them (than the Percussive Grooves) because we had a variety of sounds to use in making them.   If your sound source is a GENERAL MIDI device, your trapKAT’s MELODIC GROOVES should play right out of the box. See p.11-12 in the trapKAT manual or HERE [how do you use grooves] for more info on GROOVEs.
