At the heart of Steven Slate Drums 4.0 is the SSD Player, a state of the art Mac/PC (VST, RTAS, AU) Drum Sampler built from the ground up by the award winning development team behind our TRIGGER drum replacement processor. The SSD Player is extremely easy and intuitive to use. Loading kits, customizing kits, mixing kits, loading and auditioning MIDI grooves, customizing MIDI maps, and routing discretely to your workstation are all a breeze with the SSD Player. It even lets you load your own drum samples to mix in with the Slate drumkits.
100 Kits means that we've got your drum sounds covered. New in 4.0 are dozens of new DELUXE series kits that were recorded with extreme precision, resulting in a remarkably natural playability. In SSD4 Platinum, you'll find Rock, Metal, Vintage, Indie, Funk, and even Jazz/Brushes Deluxe Kits.
SSD4 Platinum also brings back the classic Slate "Mix Ready" kits, but all reprogrammed for better sound, response, and realism. Included in these classic kits are the famous "Signature Kits", which are drumkits modeled after famous sounding artists and albums. Signature Kits include: Steely Dan, Metallica, Dream Theater, Led Zeppelin, Greenday, Nirvana, Pantera, Deftones, AC/DC, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Motley Crue.
SSD4 brings a brand new cymbal pack from Soultone Cymbals. These custom Turkish cymbals are some of the best sounding in the world! From the dark VINTAGE series to the bright and shimmery EXTREME series, these cymbals give the drumkits the ultimate brass accompaniment!
New in SSD4 are five kits in the Urban/Dance/House/Electro genre designed by producer Griffin Boice. These kits are processed with boutique analog gear to provide the fat radio ready sound you'll want for you pop, urban, and dance mixes!
