Sonoma Wire Works has acquired the entire Submersible Music product line, including the DrumCore and KitCore software and drum content. Submersible was created by Paul Allen, the philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder, to help him in his own songwriting. The company's products realized his goal of "a great-sounding, accessible drum tool that allows guitarists like him to be backed by some of the most famous rock drummers".
"Sonoma Wire Works was the unanimous choice of our review team," said Chris Purcell of Submersible. "We particularly appreciated their sincere and enthusiastic presentation here in Seattle. Part of our quest was to find a good home for DrumCore, where it could move up to the next level of technology and market presence. Sonoma Wire Works really resonated with us."
Sonoma Wire Works founder Doug Wright said the purchase will be good for existing customers of Submersible and Sonoma Wire Works. "We think Submersible customers will love our plans for integrating Sonoma technologies into future DrumCore versions," he said. "We know that our RiffWorks and InstantDrummer community will love the premium grooves offered by this huge variety of pro drummers."
