Submersible Music has announced the release of version 2.0 of KitCore and KitCore Deluxe, the AU/VSTi/RTAS MIDI drum instrument and groove library for Mac OS X and Windows. These tools offer songwriters grooves by famous drummers/percussionists plus their acoustic, electronic and Latin instrument sounds at a low price. Plus users can mix and match any of the 48 pad sounds to create their own custom, hybrid kits. The v2.0 upgrade is free to all KitCore and KitCore Deluxe version 1.0 owners now at submersiblemusic.com.
New Kitcore / Kitcore Deluxe v2.0 Plug-in Features
Now you can easily search and audition your KitCore grooves using the new Groove Browser. Beats, variations and fills are arranged into song-like GrooveSets for easy access by songwriters. Search for content based on drummer, musical style and "Feel" criteria (like shuffle, swing, 1/8th, 1/16th etc.). Then simply drag and drop the grooves to a track in your host application (Acid, Cubase, DP, GarageBand, Live, Logic, Pro Tools, Sonar, etc.).
Enhancements to the KitCore MIDI engine provide greater realism for drum rolls and cymbal performances. Tired of "machine gun" playback? Grab the LiveDrummer slider and bring the dynamics back into your groove.
