DrumCore 4.3.4 Works with macOS 10.14.5 and Many New DAW Versions:

The DrumCore 4.3.4 Compatibility List has been updated with macOS 10.14.5 (Mojave) and several recently released recording software (DAW) versions. Highlights:

  • Pro Tools 2019.5 (Mac and Win: AAX) works great!
  • Logic Pro 10.4.4 (Mac: AU) works great!
  • Digital Performer 10 (Mac: AU/VST3 and Win: VST3) added VST3 support, and all is working great!
  • Studio One 4 (Mac: AU/VST3 and Win: VST3): AU is fully functional with DC4 on Mac. As a VST3 plug-in, regular stereo out for DC4 is working great on Mac/Win (not multi-out).
  • Ableton Live 10.1 (Mac: AU and Win: VST3) AU is fully functional with DC4 on Mac! Live's new VST3 support on Windows is fully functional with regular DC4 stereo out (not multi-out).
  • FL Studio 20 (Mac: VST3) is a welcome addition to the DC4 compatibility list and works great! FL Studio 20 (Win: VST3) is not on the compatibility list yet because, although audio and stereo-out are working well, there are MIDI issues that we are looking into.

See the Status of Using DAWs with DC4 section for DAWs currently being tested including:

  • Cubase 10 (Mac/Win): A user has reported success using DrumCore 4.3.4 with Cubase 10 on macOS 10.14.5, so we are excited to test it.
  • Acid Pro 9 (Win) with added VST3 support was released. It's not working yet, but Sonoma is looking into a solution. More.
  • Waveform 10 is working well with DC4 per user feedback. We'll post results soon.

Sonoma will be doing further testing, and will update the Additional Info section of DC4's Compatibility List as we know more. Email support with your results if you are using any new DAW versions that we are testing, or if you would like to be informed of results for a particular DAW Version.
