Sonoma Wire Works DrumCore 4 is an upgrade of the award-winning DrumCore 3 plug-in drum instrument with stereo 24 bit audio loops and MIDI loops of inspiring performances by hit-proven drummers, plus multi-velocity drum kit samples across a multitude of styles. Now a 64-bit VST3/AAX/AU plug-in, DrumCore 4 works with most popular 64-bit recording software, and includes a convenient groove browser, song timeline, mixer, effects and more. Choose to use royalty-free drum loops by celebrity drummers (provided as tempo-adjustable GrooveSets in a wide variety of styles), or create your own grooves with multi-velocity drum kits, which are MIDI-mapped and customizable, making DrumCore easy to use with external controllers. DrumCore 4 is the perfect tool for songwriters, composers, musicians and producers. Simply drag and drop grooves to tracks in most popular recording applications on Mac OS and Windows.
