[NAMM] Submersible Music Drumcore 3
Submersible Music has announced that it will be demonstrating version 3 of the DrumCore software at this week's NAMM show.
The new version 3 sports a new interface, new content and is now a plug-in (RTAS/AU/VST).
Drumcore 3 New Features
New User Interface
DrumCore v3 features a new interface with enhancements asked for by DrumCore users. Beats, variations and fills are arranged into song-like GrooveSets for fast access. Search content based on drummers, musical styles and "Feel" criteria (like shuffle,swing, 1/8th, 1/16th, etc.) and then drag and drop grooves into a music application (Acid, Cubase, DP, GarageBand, Live, Logic, Pro Tools, Sonar, etc.).
Expanded "Basic Beats", Urban and Jazz Sections
A selection of songwriting beats have been added plus expanded jazz content featuring Seattle jazz drummer Gregg Keplinger. Submersible's "Urban GT" expansion pack ($49 value) is now included, which features hip-hop and modern R&B MIDI grooves plus 24 subwoofer-slammin' drumkits.
Matt Cameron (Soundgarden), John Tempesta (Testament) and Stephen Perkins (Jane's Addiction) Content
Included with v3 are drumkits and grooves from Seattle rock/alternative legend Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam), all of the Tempesta Pack II expansion pack ($79 value) featuring smoldering metal drummer John Tempesta (Rob Zombie, Testament, Helmet) and new grooves by Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins.
DrumCore v3 is now a plug-in for easier integration with the popular recording applications.
DrumCore Toolkit can be used for importing REX2, WAV, ACID and AIFF loop libraries as well as for building drumkits using any WAV or AIFF files. It is a standalone application and ReWire client that works similar to DrumCore 2.5.
Pricing & Availability
DrumCore v3 will be available for $199 in Q2 of 2009.
A v3 upgrade will be available to all DrumCore customers for $50 via www.submersiblemusic.com and music software resellers worldwide. There will be no free upgrades. Example drum tracks will soon be available on the Submersible website.
