* Bold = These do NOT come with DrumCore 4 Ultra. If you have Ultra, or are considering upgrading or crossgrading to Ultra, you should choose the bold ones for your freebies.

To preview each drummer's GrooveSets:
First check that DC4 is not downloading any other files. Previewing GrooveSets also downloads files, so you don't want to overwhelm your system by downloading too many files at once. In DrumCore 4.3.4 SETTINGS: Check that all your DC4 edition content has downloaded by clicking "Download all owned content", or, if you do not wish to wait for your other content to download, you can simply click "Cancel all items in queue." This will free up your system to download previews. For more tips about searching for and previewing un-owned content in DC4, see the DrumCore 4 User Guide sections 3.2.5 and 3.2.6.

Then open DC4, click the BROWSER tab at the bottom of the plug-in. Make sure your "Show Owned" button is not pressed so you see all of the content available. Find a drummer from the list of drummers above (e.g. EarthBeat), then preview a loop by clicking ONE play/arrow icon, wait for the loop to download, listen to it, then press the same button again to stop the preview. Repeat to preview other loops one at a time.

Email support with a list of GrooveSets you are interested in for your Bonus drums (e.g. EB Carlos GrooveSet...).
