Submersible Music has released DrumCore FREE "to help all those songwriters on a budget get their groove on". DrumCore gives songwriters and composers access to grooves as both audio loops and MIDI files plus it includes an RTAS, AU and VST software drum instrument for Mac OS X and Windows. It is available now via download at submersiblemusic.com.
DrumCore FREE Features
DrumCore FREE sports DrumCore 3's new "sunburst" user interface which allows easy search and audition of both audio and MIDI grooves in the Groove Browser. Content is arranged into song-like GrooveSets, that group related loops, fills and variations together. Content is tagged via metadata that includes Drummer, Musical Style and "Feel" including shuffle, swing, 1/8th, 1/16th, etc. Drag and drop export of audio and MIDI to a track is supported with all popular music/recording applications (including Acid, Cubase, DP, GarageBand, Live, Logic, Pro Tools, Reaper, Sonar, Traction, etc.).
Groove Content includes Basic Beats/Rock Pop 101 and Urban GT/Hip-Hop Classics
DrumCore FREE includes one of DrumCore 3's bread-and-butter, rock/pop songwriting GrooveSets that features audio loops, fills and variations plus MIDI versions of most of that content. Also included are the Urban GT Hip-Hop Classic grooves (1-4) and some other MIDI grooves. More than enough content is there to get your creative juices flowing.
Acoustic Rock/Pop and Electronic/HipHop Kit Plus Latin Sounds
Included with DrumCore FREE are some MIDI drumkits for loading into DrumCore's MIDI instrument. Use these for playing the included MIDI grooves or to write your own beats.
The LiveDrummer DrumCore 3 MIDI engine enhancements provide greater realism for drum rolls and cymbal performances. Tired of "machine gun" playback? Grab the LiveDrummer slider and get more dynamics into your groove.
DrumCore FREE VS. Standard DrumCore
FREE Has Much Less Content (around 1 GB vs. around 16 GB)
DrumCore includes more content by more drummers across many more styles. Drummers in DrumCore include: Ben Smith (Heart), John Bishop (Ernie Watts), Terry Bozzio (Jeff Beck, Zappa). Matt Sorum (Velvet Revolver), Tony Braunagel (Bonnie Raitt), Ned Douglas (Dave Stewart,), Sly Dunbar (Bob Marley), Michael Shrieve (Santana), Alan White (John Lennon, Yes), Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam), John Tempesta (Rob Zombie), Stephen Perkins (Jane's Addiction), Lonnie Wilson (Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flatts), Luis Conte (Clapton, Sergio Mendes) Zoro (Lenny Kravitz) and others. Even more drummer content is available via "DrummerPack" expansion libraries.
FREE Does NOT Include DrumCore Toolkit
DrumCore Toolkit is a standalone application that can be used for importing your audio and MIDI loop libraries as well as for building drumkits using WAV or AIFF files. It is also great for just jamming with the grooves or for using live with a MIDI controller.
