Artists Using DrumCore 3

  • Danny Weinkauf "I love DrumCore. I recently needed to re-record a version of one of my TMBG tunes for a museum in Canada, so instead of using our drummer I used DrumCore and it sounded great! I also use it all the time for tracks for TV and jingles. It's got a great variety of easy to use sounds and beats, and that's important when you need to get tracks done quickly." - Danny Weinkauf (They Might Be Giants)

  • Anthony Gonzalez M83 "DrumCore is so handy and so very easy to use! Most of the time I work with real drummers, but because I'm all alone in my studio when I write, I need to start with something. DrumCore is very easy and sounds so good; it's very close to having a live drummer with you." - Anthony Gonzalez (a.k.a. M83)

  • Dave Kushner of Velvet Revolver "DrumCore sounds great and you don't have to worry about the BPM, the mix, etc. You don't have to edit it much. You just throw it in there and it sounds great on its own. I've used it both ways, I've dragged audio files straight onto a stereo track and I've programmed the drums with the MIDI sets. It's really easy to use, and it sounds so real, which is hard to find." - Dave Kushner (Velvet Revolver)

DrumCore 3 Reviews

  • Sound On Sound "DrumCore's come a long way, and version 3 makes it easier than ever to use pro drummer performances on your tracks." More at Sound On Sound

  • Tape Op Scott McChane says, "I was definitely wowed by DrumCore's workflow, but what really won me over was the natural, uncolored quality of the recorded audio files (24-bit, 48 kHz). In addition to the great selection of drumkit and percussion libraries included with the factory install, an impressive catalog of GrooveSets has been compiled in DrummerPack expansion libraries. All of DrumCore's libraries, including both the factory and exansion packs, feature many drummers you're sure to recognize - like Alan White, Bill Bruford, Luis Conte, and more."
