Pro Drums for Songwriters
DrumCore 4 is a new and improved upgrade of the award winning DrumCore 3 plug-in drum instrument with stereo 24 bit audio loops + MIDI recordings of inspiring performances by hit-proven drummers, plus great drum sounds across a multitude of styles. Now a 64-bit VST3/AAX/AU plug-in, DrumCore 4 has an improved interface and several highly anticipated features. DrumCore 4 is the perfect tool for songwriters, composers, musicians and producers. Simply drag and drop grooves to tracks in most Mac OS and Windows music software. Easily integrates with most popular recording applications on Mac OS and Windows.
DrumCore 4 Prime contains more than ten thousand tempo-stretchable, royalty free audio drum loops recorded in sparkling 24-bit 48kHz format. A large portion 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 100 multi-velocity sampled drum kits. Not enough? DrumCore 4 contains an online store build directly into the plugin which allows you to purchase and download even more loops, MIDI files, and sampled kits from an ever growing online collection.
DrumCore 4 Prime 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. The recognizable snare of Matt Sorum with the thunderous kick drum of Terence Higgins? The choice is yours.
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 compressor, parametric EQ, stereo delay, and reverb are included with a pro quality spectrum analyzer to ensure you know exactly what is happening with your audio. Customize your sound directly in the plug-in without needed extra extra effects in your DAW.
