* Bold = These do NOT come with DC4 Ultra. If you have Ultra, or are considering upgrading or crossgrading to Ultra, you may want to only choose bolded ones as freebies.


• Wait until all owned content has downloaded before previewing new content: in DrumCore 4.3.4 SETTINGS click "Download all owned content." This helps you choose bonus content you do not own, and will keep you from downloading too many files at once (previewing also downloads files).

• Previews of all GrooveSets are available in DC4 Lite ($49), DC4 Prime ($249) and DC4 Ultra ($639).

• To see the list of each drummer's GrooveSets and Drum Kits: Open the DC4 plug-in, click the BROWSER tab at the bottom of the plug-in, toggle the "Show Owned" button to preview drums you do not own, then click "More..."

• See this FAQ for Searching in DC4 and the DC4 User Guide sections 3.2.5 and 3.2.6.
