Submersible Music's DrumCore 3 sports a new “Sunburst Finish” user interface, more than twice as much content and is now a plug-in. DrumCore gives songwriters and composers access to grooves and instrument sounds of more than a dozen drummers and percussionists. It includes a library of both audio loops and MIDI grooves, plus a software drum instrument for Mac and PC. NEW DRUMCORE 3 FEATURES
The "Sunburst Finish" interface lets users search and audition grooves in DrumCore using List View in the updated Groove Browser. Creating more authentic drum parts is easier as content is arranged into song-like GrooveSets that group related loops, fills and variations together. New content includes a larger number of intros and endings, in addition to the verse/chorus variations. It supports searching 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 most music/recording applications. The LiveDrummer DrumCore 3 MIDI engine enhancements provide greater realism for drum rolls and cymbal performances.
DrumCore Version 3 costs $199 USD; an upgrade is available to all DrumCore customers for $50 USD available via www.submersiblemusic.com and music software resellers worldwide. Check out other product news from Musikmesse 2009.
