The EastWest ProDrummer is out
EastWest has finally released its ProDrummer virtual drums designed in collaboration with Doug Rogers, Mark Stent and Joe Chiccarelli.
EastWest ProDrummer is a drum library designed for the brand’s own sample player on Mac OS X and Windows. It features all the tools you need to mix MIDI sounds, grooves and pre-mixed kits, such as a sequencer, a 16-channel mixer in which each drum has its own channel and a nice collection of processors, including the SSL Transient Shaper, dynamics, EQ and the famous Stereo Bus Compressor, the Ohmforce Ohmicide multiband distortion, compression, EQ and filter as well as the new EastWest Amp Simulator and the Expanded Convolution Reverb with 726 presets. All the parameters in ProDrummer can be adjusted and stored as presets.
ProDrummer launches with two libraries: Volume 1 features approximately 60 GB of content, with kits and grooves produced by Mark “Spike” Stent and Doug Rogers from DW, Slingerland, Gretsch, Ludwig, Yamaha, Orange County drums as well as Zildjian cymbals, all played by Steven Sidelnyk (Madonna, Seal, Massive Attack) and recorded in 5 different studios.
ProDrummer volume 2 features 40 GB of sounds produced by Joe Chiccarelli and Doug Rogers, who called Matt Chamberlain (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Gabriel) to play in three studios on Craviotto, Ludwig, Tama, Slingerland, Gretsch drums with Istanbul and Zildjian cymbals.
In total, ProDrummer offers over 100 GB of content and 14,000 MIDI grooves, but don’t worry, a search engine is included. Last, you can export all the drum tracks to your DAW.
Each ProDrummer volume is available for the introductory price of 179 € / $199 instead of 230 € / $249, or bundled for 319 € / 349 instead or 460 € / $498 for a limited time. The collection is also available via the Composer Cloud subscription offer. More info at www.soundsonline.com/prodrummer.
