    DrumCore 4: Pro Drum Loops and Drum Kit Samples for Songwriters
    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 is available in three editions ($49/$249/$639) that contain the same plug-in. The differences are how it is delivered (download, USB Flash drive or Solid State drive) and how much content is included.

    DrumCore 4 Ultra ($639): 50 GB of content, including 265 GrooveSets (21,000 audio and 3,000 MIDI loops and fills) by 18 drummers, and 139 multi-velocity sampled kits. DC4 Ultra (SSD) is delivered on a silent and fast 120 GB USB 3.0 Solid State Drive with space to add more content from the DrumCore 4 store. The plug-in and content are available on the drive, providing fast installation for new and upgrade customers. The external hard drive makes it easy to install and use DrumCore in different studios. DrumCore 4 Ultra is also available as a download, which is great for those with an excellent internet connection who do not want to wait or pay for shipping. Compare DC4 Editons.

    DC4 Compatibility List Updated: DrumCore 4.3.4 works with macOS 10.14.5 (Mojave), Pro Tools 2019.5, Logic Pro 10.4.4, DP 10, Studio One 4, Live 10.1 and more →

      Audio Loops, MIDI files, and Sampled Drum Kits
      DrumCore 4 Ultra contains tens of thousands of tempo-stretchable, royalty free audio drum loops 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 loops can be used to trigger the included 139 multi-velocity sampled drum kits. Not enough? DrumCore 4 contains an embedded store which allows you to purchase and download even more loops, MIDI files, and sampled kits from an ever growing online collection.

      Kit Mixer
      DrumCore 4 Ultra 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 View, users can mix, apply effects, and create whole new kits using individual kit pieces from the 100 included kits. Matt Sorum's unmistakable snare with Terence Higgins' kick drum? The choice is yours.

      Pro-Quality MasterFX
      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.

    Previews and Drummers
    Preview player for Ultra is coming soon. For now, check out the previews for DC4 Lite.
