KitCore gives you the sounds and beats of famous drummers in a multitude of styles and more.
Legendary Drummers' Kits and MIDI Beats
You get one Matt Sorum (Velvet Revolver) and two Ben Smith (Heart) rock/pop kits, a Jon Bishop (Ernie Watts) jazz kit, a set of Luis Conte Latin percussion sounds, a brushed drumkit and two subwoof-slammin' urban/electronic kits. Plus it comes with over 400 MIDI drum grooves (beats, fills, variations, click tracks, etc.) and includes MIDI grooves from the DrumCore library.
Drumkits and grooves from metal master John Tempesta and Seattle drum legend Matt Cameron
Heavy metal fury from John Tempesta (Helmet, Testament, White Zombie) and rock/alt from Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam).
Recorded "In The Style" for Maximum Authenticity and Delivered at 48kHz/24 bit Kits for Great Fidelity
Using the best of digital and analog, the kit's tone is burned-in at the sample level for great sound with minimal CPU load. From priceless Pultecs to vintage Neumann mics - get the sound of a multi-million dollar studio on your laptop.
An Expandable Palette of Sounds
Unlike programs that only offer a five piece acoustic drumkit, KitCore gives you 48 pads you can mix-and-match with acoustic, electronic and Latin sounds to make your own "hybrid" kits - all with that DrumCore sound.
Plus you can expand your KitCore library via Submersible KitPacks, available in a wide variety of styles and price points. DrumCore users note that KitCore can access any DrumCore or DrumCore LT drumkits you already have installed.
Version 2 includes a way to easily see all the Submersible grooves included with KitCore plus your KitCore expansion packs. Just audition a groove in sync with your main recording application and then drag and drop the MIDI beat or fill onto a track. Content is arranged in songwriter-friendly "GrooveSets" which group beats, fills and variations together to allow faster and easier song construction based on the sensibilities of these great pro drummers. Search for grooves by Feel (Shuffle, 1/8ths, etc.) and use Queue Mode for seeing how beats and fills work together before exporting them - just as in DrumCore.
Version 2 unveils the new "RealDrummer" control that gives you the ability to add drummerly accents to your MIDI and does-away with the evils of machinegun-like MIDI playback. Give your snare roll new life and make your hi-hats groove with this cool new control.
General MIDI (GM) Compatible
Like DrumCore, KitCore is General MIDI (GM) compatible. This lets it work with GM note maps found in the drum editors of most applications and allows easy control via most external pad controllers.
