Soulful Drums With a Big Heart
Contemporary drummer with a 60s & 70s vibe
Let's get it on
These beats run deep. If that's a quality you're looking to elicit in your music, Virtual Drummer is here to help. And we mean deep as in soulful, deep as in complex and intricate. Deepness as a measure of emotions. DEEP is UJAM's most spirited drummer, standing on the shoulders of traditional genres like Soul and Funk, with its gaze firmly set on contemporary styles and timeless future classics.
Show me what you got:
Sweet Soul music
Soul and funk dominated the music biz during the 1960s and 1970s. And we think for a good reason! These styles were predominantly played by African-American musicians like Stevie Wonder, James Brown, and Marvin Gaye. Soul music took the stages, record players and musical hearts of the world by storm, driven by iconic rhythm sections like the Funk Brothers and Booker T. & The M.G.'s.
DEEP plays perfectly along with Virtual Bassist DANDY. While you may use DEEP on its own, the included Styles are made-to-match with the bass phrases in DANDY. To make joining the two easy for you, the available Styles have got matching names. Just pick the same style name in DANDY and DEEP and create perfectly aligned bass and drum backings in a breeze.
Incredible detail :
From retro to metro
Soul music emphasizes lyrics, vocal melodies, and vocal harmonies. You could see the roots as gospel music without the religious factor. Typical songs emphasize melody and vocals.
Soul music is much less complex than funk music and was more commercially successful.
This means soul drumming features more basic patterns with fewer embellishments.
Edgy and energetic
DEEP covers not only soulful and groovy genres but feels also right at home with pop, rock and alternative vibes. Make your production dazzling, with real-world drumming performances, that breathe artistic life into your track.
Features at a Glance
Quickly customize the sound of each of the five drum kits: Dial in some extra dirt and energy with the Grit control or by using one of our six Mix Presets – from gentle and sophisticated to fierce and powerful.
Use the Mix Presets to shape the overall sound. Each Mix Preset swaps out an entire multi-bus effect chain for every instrument channel and saves you time and nerves.
Finalize and finetune your drum mix by individually adjusting the volume of each component of the kit including separate controls for overhead & room mics before adding a touch of reverb.
I just love UJAM way of thinking, making complex things easy and accessible. The Virtual Drummer is no exception.
While you can use the individual instruments (kick, snare, tom, hats) you also have style patterns you can use and create complete drum performance.
The patterns can be drag & dropped as MIDI parts into your DAW and further edit later.
In addition you can route the different instruments to channels in your DAW for more control and mixing.
Virtual Drummer Deep includes 5 kits with different sound, micing and mixing settings for you to choose from.
