Submersible DrumCore Drum Synth

DrumCore 3
Pro drums for songwriters and composers. Spark your creativity with the kind of grooves that only incredible drummers and great-sounding kits can provide. Tired of faceless, generic MIDI beats and gutless sounds? Need to stretch beyond the limited styles and minimal sound possibilities of other drum software? If you want authentic grooves and sounds without any fuss get DrumCore.

Over a Dozen Pro Drummers in a Ton of Styles
Ever wonder what its like to play with a world-famous drummer? DrumCore features top drummers in a multitude of styles including rock, reggae, pop, Latin, jazz, urban, metal and more. Drummers include:

- Jeff Anthony (Sheryl Crow)
- John Bishop (Ernie Watts)
- Terry Bozzio (UK, Zappa, Missing Persons)
- Tony Braunagel (Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal)
- Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam)
- Luis Conte (Clapton, Pat Metheny, Sergio Mendes)
- Ned Douglas (Dave Stewart)
- Sly Dunbar (Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Black Uhuru)
- Gregg Keplinger (Herb Ellis, Carter Jefferson)
- Stephen Perkins (Janes Addiction, Porno for Pyros)
- Michael Shrieve (Santana)
- Ben Smith (Heart)
- Matt Sorum (Guns 'N Roses, Vellvet Revolver)
- DJ Syze-up (UltraNat)
- John Tempesta (Testament, Helmet)
- Alan White (Yes, John Lennon)
- Lonnie Wilson (Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flatts)
- Zoro (Lenny Kravitz, Bobby Brown)

Audio Loops + Midi = Ultimate Versatility and Authenticity
Why choose between the intense realism of a recorded audio performance and the versatility of MIDI? With DrumCore you get both. Do you think that MIDI-based brush grooves sound a bit cheesy? Get the real thing with DrumCores audio loops. Want to hear that metal beat on a hip-hop kit and have control over every note in the part? Use DrumCores MIDI grooves and kits. Layer audio loops and MIDI together to add accents or create some hybrid grooves.

Featuring Over 100 Great Kits
Don't be satisfied with products that only offer you a couple of acoustic kits. After all, you shouldn't need a new plug-in to add a tambourine part. Use DrumCores kits to play the built-in MIDI grooves or for creating your own beats. Mix-and-match kit pieces (snares, kicks, etc.), retune them and route them to separate mixer inputs in your recording software for ultimate versatility.

The DrumCore Toolkit
This standalone application is great for jamming with beats and for adding your own samples (audio loops and drum sounds) to DrumCore. Catalog your loop libraries and build kits with your favorite samples, complete with velocity zones and crossfades.

Easy Integration
DrumCore easily integrates with popular plug-in hosts on Mac and PC. Audio exports as WAV, AIFF or REX2 and MIDI grooves export as standard MIDI files. Just drag and drop them to a track.

DrumCore Deluxe (optional)
Most pros know that when you buy your tools, you should get them with all the options. For them, there's no better choice than DrumCore Deluxe. Gigabytes and gigabytes of grooves across a multitude of musical styles.

DrumCore Deluxe Includes:
- DrumCore (v3)
- AlanPack I
- CameronPack I
- LonniePack I
- LuisPack I
- TempestaPack I
- MattPack I
- SlyPack I
- TerryPack I
- ZoroPack I

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Yep. This is a winner."
Sound: Excellent quality sounds, regardless of the beat or style. Feature: The search and ability to categorize samples is nice. Ease of Use: Amazingly easy to use. One good sound and drum technique leads to another! Quality: Haven't experienced any glitches with the software itself, but noticed a slight "bite" at the end of saved samples in .wav format. But I can live with that. Value: The price is a bit steep, but you're purchasing a specialized product. This isn't just some generic drum machine. The quality shows. Manufacturer Support: Have not needed any support. The Wow Factor: If you want quality sound and a nice good variety of drum sounds/beats, then you should consider this product. Overall: I plan to use this product for quite a while. It has the quality and flexibility I need.
Style of Music: Rock - eclectic & abstract

"DrumCore - Great sounds, Easy to use"
Sound: Great drummers, great sounds, lots of styles Feature: It does what it does well, not a ton of features, but it allows you to get to work quickly and create good sounding drum tracks Ease of Use: Very easy to use, tabbing back and forth between your host and the app is sort of a pain, but it does make finding your drum beats easy and getting them into your workstation easy. Quality: Great sounding product. Not cheesy, these are real drums played by great drummers. Value: Pretty good value, if you are into midi you should check out KitCore Deluxe. That is a super value Manufacturer Support: No issues
Style of Music: varies depends on job

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
