It consists of almost 80 multi-samples used to created almost 60 drumsets played by sticks and brushes created using more than 200 components ready to use and customize using MeldaProduction's advanced multi-sampling technology, the MMultiSampler.

Changes in MDrummer v3.0:
- Highly improved MMultiSampler for MTotalDrums - multisampler now handles multisampled multilayer multimiked libraries for even more powerful and realistic acoustic drums and percussion. Pitch envelope has also been added.
