Build the drum kit of your dreams by choosing from 27 different kit pieces. From tight and focused to boomy and huge, the possibilities are endless!

Mixer / FX
12 individually-controllable close, overhead and room mic channels with full bleed controls allow you to mix the audio just as if you had recorded it yourself. It sounds real because it is real!
Each mixer channel contains a 5-slot DAW-style insert section with 9 different effects processors and 4 reverbs hand-picked by Jay.

For those users who wish to mix in their DAW instead, each channel can easily be multi-output routed to individual DAW channels in all popular recording software with our included templates.
