Description

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.

Audio Loops, MIDI files, and Sampled Drum Kits

DrumCore 4 Ultra contains tens of thousands of tempo-stretchable, royalty free audio drum loops recorded in sparkling 24-bit 48kHz format. Many of the loops also have a matching MIDI version to edit or create your own fills and rhythms that work seamlessly with the audio. These MIDI loops can be used to trigger the included 139 multi-velocity sampled drum kits. Not enough? DrumCore 4 contains an embedded store which allows you to purchase and download even more loops, MIDI files, and sampled kits from an ever growing online collection.

Kit Mixer

DrumCore 4 Ultra is more than just a collection of tempo-stretchable audio loops. Switching to MIDI loops gives you an incredible amount of control over the sound and quality of the sampled kits. Using the new Kit View, users can mix, apply effects, and create whole new kits using individual kit pieces from the 100 included kits. Matt Sorum's unmistakable snare with Terence Higgins' kick drum? The choice is yours.

Pro-Quality MasterFX

In addition to being able to apply effects to the individual drums when using MIDI, all new stereo MasterFX can be applied to both audio and MIDI loops. A multiband compressor, parametric EQ, and stereo delay are included with a spectrum analyzer to ensure you know exactly what is happening with your audio. Customize your sound directly in the plug-in without the need for extra effects in your DAW.
