  • 1Description

Delivered on a USB SSD hard drive, DrumCore 4 Ultra from Sonoma Wire Works is a virtual instrument plug-in that offers recordings of audio drum loops, MIDI drum loops, and multi-velocity sampled drum kits, masterfully performed by eighteen hit-proven drummers. It gives songwriters, composers, musicians, and producers the tools and flexibility to quickly create highly-personalized drum tracks in a wide variety of musical genres such as funk, rock, metal, alternative, blues, jazz, R&B, world music, country, pop, hip hop, and more.

DrumCore 4 Ultra contains twenty-two thousand tempo-stretchable, royalty-free audio loops recorded in sparkling 24-bit/48 kHz format, many with a matching MIDI version that works seamlessly with the audio. Up to 3000 MIDI loops can be used to trigger any element of the included 139 drum kits. Use the Groove Browser to easily find grooves based on drummer, genre, feel, or meter, and simply drag and drop audio and MIDI files directly to your tracks, in any supported DAW.

If you prefer to sketch out your rhythm without having to bring it into your song right away, the Timeline lets you construct brand-new grooves and audition them from within the plug-in. Further customize your drums with the Kit Mixer, which allows you to combine kits, layer drum sounds and grooves, and selectively process each sound in the MasterFX section, with effects such as a multiband compressor, parametric EQ, and stereo delay.

The 120GB USB 3.0 SSD hard drive contains the full plug-in and 50GB of content. It allows you to install DrumCore 4 in different studios and access your drums when and where you need them.
