Sonoma Wire Works DrumCore 4 Prime Link -
Drum Kit Virtual Instrument
DrumCore 4 is an AAX/VST3/AU plug-in instrument with 24-bit audio and MIDI drum loops of inspiring performances by famous drummers, and their multi-velocity sampled drum kits. With its improved browser and searching, 64-bit compatibility, mixer view with insert effects, song timeline for assembling loops, and integrated store with previews, DrumCore 4 is the perfect tool for songwriters, composers, musicians, and producers. Choose to use royalty-free drum loops by celebrity drummers (provided as tempo-adjustable GrooveSets in a wide variety of styles), or create your own grooves with the drummers' kits, which are MIDI-mapped and customizable, making DrumCore easy to use with external controllers. Drag and drop grooves to tracks in most popular recording applications on Mac and Windows.
DrumCore 4 Prime includes 20 GB of content, including 160 GrooveSets (10,000 and 2,000 MIDI loops and fills) by 17 drummers, and 100 multi-velocity sampled kits. DC4 Prime Link is available as a download only.
Audio Loops, MIDI files, and Sampled Drum Kits
DrumCore 4 Prime contains more than ten thousand tempo-stretchable, royalty-free audio drum loops and fills recorded in sparkling 24-bit 48kHz format. Many of the loops also have a matching MIDI version to edit or create your own fills and rhythms that work seamlessly with the audio. These MIDI files can be used to trigger the included 100 multi-velocity sampled drum kits. Not enough? DrumCore 4 includes an integrated store, built directly in the plugin, which allows you to purchase and download more loops, MIDI files, and sampled kits from an ever-growing collection.
DrumCore 4 Prime is more than just a collection of tempo-stretchable audio loops. Switching to MIDI loops gives you an incredible amount of control over the sound and quality of the sampled kits. Using the new Kit Tab, users can mix, apply effects, and create customized kits using individual instruments from any the 100 included kits. Want the recognizable snare of Matt Sorum with the thunderous kick drum of Terence Higgins? The choice is yours.
In addition to being able to apply effects to the individual drums when using MIDI, all new stereo MasterFX can be applied to both audio and MIDI loops. A multiband compressor, parametric EQ, and stereo delay are included with a spectrum analyzer to ensure you know exactly what is happening with your audio. Customize your sound directly in the plug-in without the need for extra effects in your DAW.
