Steven Slate Drums 4 is a Drum Sampler with 100 drumkit presets. The SSD Player is designed to be extremely easy and intuitive to use. Loading kits, customizing kits, mixing kits, loading and auditioning MIDI grooves, customizing MIDI maps, and routing discretely to a workstation are designed to be a breeze with the SSD Player. It also lets the user load their own drum samples to mix in with the Slate drumkits.
New in 4.0 are dozens of new DELUXE series kits that were recorded with extreme precision, resulting in a remarkably natural playability. SSD4 Platinum includes Rock, Metal, Vintage, Indie, Funk, and even Jazz/Brushes Deluxe Kits.
SSD4 Platinum includes "Mix Ready" kits. Included in these kits are the famous "Signature Kits", which are drumkits modeled after famous sounding artists and albums. Signature Kits include: Steely Dan, Metallica, Dream Theater, Led Zeppelin, Greenday, Nirvana, Pantera, Deftones, AC/DC, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Motley Crue.
SSD4 also includes a cymbal pack from Soultone Cymbals. These custom Turkish cymbals span from the dark VINTAGE series to the bright and shimmery EXTREME series.
SSD4 also has five kits in the Urban/Dance/House/Electro genre designed by producer Griffin Boice. These kits are processed with boutique analog gear to provide a fat radio ready sound.
