DrumCore 4 Beta 7 is working great for hundreds of Mac beta testers. Beta 7 for Windows is being tested internally by Sonoma, and is about to be sent to users of AAX and VST3 plug-ins for Windows. Beta 7 includes all the main DrumCore 4 features (with many fixes and improvements) and adds previews of unowned loops and store purchase functionality. DC4 is very close to a release candidate.
DrumCore 4 is an AAX/VST3/AU plug-in instrument with royalty-free 24-bit audio loops, MIDI loops, and multi velocity sampled drum kits. Includes royalty free recordings of celebrity drummers in many styles. Easily integrates with most 64-bit recording software.
Pre-order DrumCore 4 now to apply to the beta program. Upgrade pricing is available for DrumCore 2.5, DrumCore 3, and KitCore users. Intro pricing for DrumCore 4 Prime Link has been extended through June 10, then the price will increase to $229 (new) and $129 (upgrade from DC3).
We've reviewed Sonoma's portable GuitarJack interfaces more than once, and have always been very pleased with their sound quality and portability. Now we have the new StudioJack Mini to supersede them; like its predecessors, it is designed and built in the USA of primarily American-sourced components, and while it's still tiny and far lighter than its predecessors (under 3 ounces!), it packs a pretty big punch for such a small box...I found the StudioJack Mini to be incredibly easy to set up and use, portable, reliable, and great-sounding. If you like the idea of a solid stereo audio interface that plays well with computers and iOS devices alike and weighs practically nothing, you'll find the StudioJack Mini suits the bill perfectly.

To control non-Sonoma apps with GuitarJack Stage, use the free GuitarJack Stage Control app. This app enables third-party apps to be controlled by GuitarJack Stage's buttons and knobs, including AmpliTube®, BIAS® FX (iPad), JamUp®, JamUp® Pro, and many other third party apps that support MIDI input.
Mic two sources at the same time using StudioJack Mini or GuitarJack Stage with Sonoma's Dual Mic Breakout Cable. This custom, 4 foot cable has a 1/4-inch stereo (TRS) plug on one end, for connecting to the mic input of your GuitarJack Stage or StudioJack Mini, and two mono female XLR plugs on the other end (with a 6 inch fan-out) so you can plug in two mics. Ideal for when you want to get a stereo recording, or record an amp and vocals, or even capture two vocals at once! The possibilities are endless!
