Tape Op Reviews DrumCore 4

"The main attraction here and what differentiates DrumCore from a lot of other drum plug-ins is the who’s who of famously talented drummers that you have ready at your fingertips. From Terry Bozzio to Bernard Purdie, and from Dennis Chambers to John Tempesta, DrumCore provides access to the actual performances and recordings on the personal kits of these legendary drummers. The recording quality of both the performances and the kits is great, and the five-page interface is efficient and eye-pleasingly designed [...] For me, the variety of drummer talent assembled and how Sonoma has lovingly captured their signature sounds and grooves is more than worth the price of admission. Two big thumbs up for DrumCore 4!" ~ Review by Will Severin
