Learn how to use an extremely powerful, easy to use drum machine software with the sound quality of a studio mix. Whether you are a beginner or professional, you will be impressed with the awesome dynamics and sound quality that it produces!

Hello, fellow musician! Have you grown tired of trying to find the perfect drum or percussion sound? Do you have trouble getting a good mix, when recording music? Perhaps, it is hard finding a good drummer for your style of music. Maybe, you are an experienced drummer, but would like a more powerful mix to program with your band's sound track. This amazing drum software can solve all of those problems, and free you up to concentrate on the most important thing...the music.

My name is Mike Hodge and I've been playing drums and guitar for over 20 years. Most of my playing was in clubs, but have played other venues. I've played rock, oldies, country, top 40, name it. I have also recorded in the studio with an original band in which we wrote and produced our own material.

How many times have you heard a good band, but the drums were too loud, too soft, or had poor reproduction of the drum set? I am always picky about the sound and would record the band when playing live, to make sure everything was evenly matched. I have specific requirements about the drums, so I had a close dialog with the soundman. The snare drum had to have a clear crisp, yet deep pop sound. The toms had to be in perfect tune and with no overtones that would muddle the sound. The overhead mikes had to be just the right distance to pick up the right cymbal sounds. Sometimes I would bring another drummer with me to play on the sound check so that I could listen out front, and make any suggestions to improve the sound. Like I said, I'm picky about the sound.

The first time I saw this drum software program, I was skeptical. I didn't think a digital drum track on a home computer would sound very good. I was wrong!!! I was blown away! I have been using this electronic drum software for 3 years, and I can not express enough how impressed I am with the sound quality that I get.

It features an extensive library of top-quality, professional drum s sounds, powerful sequencing, loop tools, and killer audio effects, all wrapped in a clean and comfortable interface with a 32 bit state-of-the-art sound engine. You will now be able to capture the power and rhythm of the world's best drummers.

From light jazz beats to crushing hip hop beats, rap beats, straight ahead rock, to time-warping electronica and progressive rock, from dance and R and B to the edge of your imagination, this electronic drum software does it all!

Percussion Effects And Features

This drum programming software is perfect for a guitarist who likes to jam. Just program what kind of beat that you want and hit play. You will be amazed at the quality of the though there was a drummer sitting in with you!
The drum track below is from the included Ambient Basic Kit, which took no programming skills. It is a basic 4/4 beat you could use for jamming or for composing your music. Turn up your Volume and go get your guitar to play along

Some of the other kits included are: Drum and Bass, Hip Hop Lo Fi, Electro Set, Smart Loops, and Rock and Blues Kit. You can save an unlimited amount of custom drum and percussion tracks, or program a measure or two, and loop it to play over and over for as long as you desire. You can also run it through your P.A. System.

You can amuse yourself for hours just using the drag and drop feature to create different drum patterns, drum kits, and if you want, adding a few extra beats to suit your taste. Below is a sample track I put together in just a few minutes using the drag and drop feature.

This is a great feature for someone who does't play the drums, but knows what kind of sound they want. If you play a musical instrument, you can create your own back beat in minutes. It is also a very nice addition to anyone with a home studio. You can combine it with this Multitrack Recording Software to add guitars, bass, vocals, and other instruments to create your own home studio.

Programming your own custom drum track requires a little more time. Each sound has it's own channel, so that for example you can have snare drum on channel 1, high tom on 2, mid tom on 3, low tom on 4, bass drum on 5, high hat on 6, ride cymbal on 7, crash cymbal on 8 and so on. You can add more channels as you go along, if they are needed for additional effects. This allows you to add open high hat, brushes or other effects. There is a button (or step) set to the tempo you choose on each channel. You click on any of these buttons to add where you want the effect to occur. For a basic track you could put a snare on beat 2 and 4, bass drum on 1 and 3, and a high hat or ride cymbal on all other buttons. A neat feature is that you can adjust the volume of each button to add dynamics on beats.

I found a very powerful function while programming a drum track. If you want to add intricate rolls and effects, you can slow down the tempo, add what you want, then play it back at the faster tempo. You really will sound like an expert drummer! You can play the drum track at any time to see how it sounds. There is an undo feature for every step in case you make a mistake. When you are satisfied with what you created, click on the render button, which allows you to save it in several different formats, and you have your finished drum track.

On top of all of this, when you buy this drum recording software, you are eligible to join (for free) a forum consisting of thousands of members who exchange ideas and offer help if you need it. It covers everything from getting started to advanced drum recording techniques, to free software upgrades.

The next time that your drummer doesn't show up, tell him/her that they are being replaced with something that doesn't talk as much, and keeps better time.

It's time to do what you know you should have done a long time ago....record the percussion track that you have in the back of your mind with this Electronic Drum Software program, because you can't seem to communicate to another person the sound you are looking for. So what are you waiting for? Download and get started now!
