What People Have to Say About DC4
Reviewers and users are delving into DrumCore 4. Several in-depth reviews are under way for prominent publications. Here's are some initial reactions from the music industry.
"I have used DrumCore on every major project I’ve worked on over the past ten years, and DrumCore 4 is even more powerful and easy to use than ever! The great grooves and fills played by the world's top drummers make it easy to build tracks, and the excellent sounding drum kits allow me to record my own parts using a MIDI controller. Whichever way I need to work for a given project, DrumCore gives me the tools I need to produce great sounding realistic drum and percussion tracks!"
- David Mash, Senior Vice President for Innovation Strategy & Technology, Berklee College of Music
"Upon initial review, DrumCore 4 is clearly a unique product, one that provides the user with the ability to massage MIDI tracks of outstanding drum performances to a fine degree. I look forward to delving into this library more deeply in the near future."
- Gary Eskow, Recording Magazine
"I love the Ludwig Kit! Not having been a DC3 user, I had never heard it before, It's beautiful! It really is an exquisitely sampled kit!"
- Joe Marquez, Guitar Teacher, Marin Community Music School
"iPhone 7 Ready" StudioJack Mini and GuitarJack Stage with Headphone/Line-Out and Charging Capability
StudioJack Mini and GuitarJack Stage 24-bit 2-in/2-out interfaces include a headphone jack (stereo line-out) that allow you to use the great-sounding headphones you already own with your iPhone 7, and charge while you play!
With GuitarJack Stage and StudioJack Mini's passionately designed AD/DA converters, your music (from iTunes, monitoring while playing and recording guitar using FourTrack, GuitarTone, and more), will sound even better than your iPhone 7 with Apple's Lightning Headphone Jack Adapter. Sonoma finds that the sound quality is best when the AD/DA are on the same board, which means we've always included a headphone jack on our interfaces. Both I/Os offer incredible sound by Joe Bryan, who also engineered past critically acclaimed GuitarJacks, interfaces for Universal Audio, and others.
These interfaces are device-powered so they are truly mobile with no power required. You can add a cable to a power source for "Pass-through Charging", so your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch will stay fully charged while you play.
Both StudioJack Mini and GuitarJack Stage are conveniently multi-platform (compatible Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Android devices). Made in the U.S.A. Available now!
