THE DRUMMER

OVER 3,300 GROOVES

STUDIO DRUMMER gives you a personal session drummer in the form of the groove library. It contains over 3,300 grooves for pop, rock, funk, jazz, indie, metal, ballads, blues or country, with a choice of fills and variations for each groove. Especially if you’re not a drummer, using grooves is a quick and efficient way to produce authentic-sounding drum tracks.

100% AUTHENTIC

All patterns were played live by pro drummers for organic, physical authenticity. This is important because if you’re after a natural sound, you have to be aware of the real-life physical constraints of real drummers. Hit the crash, snare and floor tom all at the same time? No way.

Played grooves also possess an inherent feel and character, which is difficult to recreate with a mouse or the little drum pads on your keyboard.

DRAG AND DROP INTO YOUR HOST

When you’re working on a song, browse through the grooves to find the right beat for your track. When you’ve got the groove you need, just drag-and-drop it into your sequencer to create a new MIDI pattern - which you can now fine-tune in any way you want.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR GROOVE

STUDIO DRUMMER gives you two ways to customize grooves: As mentioned above you can tweak the MIDI pattern in your sequencer, or you can use the on-board customizing features: The Tightness control lets you adjust the feel of each groove in real time, from gridded precision to enigmatic slack. The Swing control adds swing, changing a straight rock beat into a loping shuffle at the twist of a dial.
