Pro Drum Works Volume One is a massive drum loop library that lets musicians and producers quickly create drum tracks for a wide range of rock and pop music. Pro Drum Works is organized into three separate Drum Kits: Acoustic Kit, Thunder Kit, and Trap Kit. The entire collection includes over 3,000 unique grooves and fills, each performed on all three Kits, for a total over 9,000 loops and samples. Users can copy and paste drum grooves as is, or mix and match loops within each kit to create a virtually unlimited number of possible drum tracks.

Each Drum Kit provides a distinctive sound suited for particular musical styles: Acoustic Kit: Acoustic standard size drums recorded dry, with no effects. EQ and compression applied to enhance the natural quality of the drums, and to provide a little punch common in various rock music styles.

Thunder Kit: Acoustic drums recorded with powerful effects and processing to create big sounding drum tracks for today's aggressive rock styles.

Trap Kit: Acoustic drums using smaller drum sizes, and tuned for a unique small, up-front type of sound. This drum sound has been popular in styles ranging from acid-jazz to R&B Hip-Hop. Minimal EQ and processing applied.
