More Info

DrumCore 3 from Sonoma Wire Works is a virtual instrument that helps in creating authentic sounding drum tracks. The software features recorded audio loops of over a dozen professional drummers, playing in a comprehensive variety of styles, and at various tempos. The audio loops also have their complimentary MIDI files included for further detailed editing.

Unlike similar products, DrumCore concentrates on providing the featured drummers' feel and the beats themselves. This is why the audio content was recorded at various BPMs, since drummers play the same rhythm differently at different tempos. This allows the software to provide a more "live" feel to drum track creation. A database/browser aids in finding musical content quickly by allowing the user to sort and find content according to a wide variety of criteria, including drummer, style, content type, meter, length, and more.

Using an extremely simple drag and drop functionality, DrumCore is aimed at producers, composers, musicians and DJ's who use computer-based audio tools and want great drum tracks easily, without a lot of programming and fuss. The software is cross platform compatible and functions as an Audio Units, RTAS or VSTi plug-in in the appropriate host application.
