This Plug-in Packs Grooves from Drum Legends!Sonoma Wire Works's DrumCore 3 is an exciting release - not just because this popular application has been expanded to include twice as much content, but because it's now operational as an RTAS, AU, or VST plug-in. Use DrumCore 3 to give your tracks their backbone - there are tons of styles, "feels," and variations included, so you can find the perfect vibe for your song. In fact, the newly designed user interface makes it easy to search for the right groove. Rock, blues, metal, jazz, funk, urban, reggae, latin, and more - it's all inside Sonoma Wire Works's DrumCore 3.
Sonoma Wire Works DrumCore 3 Virtual Drum Plug-in at a Glance:
Twice as much content as DrumCore 2.5
Sonoma Wire Works really upped the ante with DrumCore 3, packing it with double the content featured in DrumCore 2.5. Inside, are even more audio loops and MIDI grooves covering a range of styles - from rock to pop to blues to jazz to metal, funk, Latin, reggae, urban, prog, and beyond.
Includes an attractive new user interface, for easy groove searching
Not only has Sonoma Wire Works packed DrumCore 3 with a ton of grooves, they've also revamped the user interface, making it easier to get to work - and find the feel you're looking for. Within the attractive new user interface, you can search and audition the vast amount of grooves in DrumCore via List View - and Audio Mode and MIDI Mode are clearly indicated, so you can find what you want. What's more, beats, variations, and fills are arranged into song-like GrooveSets for fast access. And, you can search content based on drummers, musical styles, "Feel" criteria (e.g., shuffle, swing, 1/8th, 1/16th, etc.) - and then you can simply drag and drop your grooves into your favorite AU, VST, or RTAS DAW application.
Vastly expanded "Basic Beats," Urban, and Jazz sections
Sonoma Wire Works went to work at the heart of DrumCore, and really expanded its core offering of "Basic Beat," Urban, and Jazz grooves, for your bread-and-butter songwriting needs. Expanded jazz content from Seattle jazz drummer Gregg Keplinger is now included. Plus, Sonoma Wire Works's popular "Urban GT" expansion pack - a $49 value - is now included, giving you tons of classic hip-hop and modern R&B MIDI grooves plus 24 drum kits.
LiveDrummer technology plus DrumCore loop-importing toolkit
With DrumCore 3's handy "LiveDrummer" technology, its MIDI engine enhancements give greater realism to drum rolls and cymbal performances for a more natural playback vibe. Just use the LiveDrummer slider to get more dynamics into your groove. And, for importing content from your favorite REX2, WAV, ACID, and AIFF loop libraries, just use the included DrumCore Toolkit - it works as a standalone application and can function via the ReWire client, much like DrumCore 2.5 did.
Includes content from a host of music's best drummers
DrumCore 3 packs in more content from great drummers, including new drum kits and grooves from Seattle rock/alternative legend Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam), all of the Tempesta Pack II expansion pack - a $79 value - and new grooves by Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins. There is, of course, still incredible content from top drummers, including Ben Smith, Terry Bozzio, Matt Sorum, Sly Dunbar, Lonnie Wilson, Zoro, Luis Conte, and more.
Operates as a VST, RTAS, and AU Plug-in
While DrumCore 2.5 was a standalone or ReWire compatible program, DrumCore 3 is now fully compatible with your DAW as a VST, RTAS, or AU plug-in.

Drumcore is the easiest drum software for a guitar player to use
by Blueshawk from Santa Barbara, CAI've tried all of the other major drum programs, and they seem to be made for drummers. If I knew how to play the drums, I wouldn't need software! I was totally drum illiterate when I started.

Now I can quickly put together a midi drum track for a new song, adjust the speed, and send each drum mic to a separate aux track so that I can mix them as if I got tracks from a studio.
It is simple to use. Listen to samples, pick the ones you like and drag them to your instrument track. You really can't mess it up. When you're done you have a track blocked out in perfect time and are ready to add your other tracks. It is very fast and the variety of drum styles and drummers is wonderful. I am not affiliated with the maker of this software, it really is this easy to use. close [-]
