Submersible Music (NAMM Booth #6225 Hall A) has announced DrumCore LT, a "lite" version of its award-winning DrumCore software. This new product is positioned as a DrummerPack player - giving musicians, producers and songwriters access to DrumCore-quality content at a new, breakthrough price of $69 (US MAP).
Users simply purchase a DrummerPack for $79.99 retail/ $69.99 MAP (US) and download DrumCore LT from www.submersiblemusic.com. Then they can start writing songs with their recording software (Cubase, DP, Logic, Live, Pro Tools, Sonar, etc.) and access all the great grooves and MIDI drumkits found in their DrummerPack. Your DrumCore LT library can be expanded by purchasing more DrummerPacks or by upgrading to DrumCore. Note that DrumCore LT only allows use of Submersible DrummerPack content.
Full versions of DrumCore come with more content and allow importing WAV, AIFF, REX2, Acid and MIDI files plus editing and creation of user drumkits.
DrumCore LT Features:
Loop Librarian/Search Engine - the fastest way to the perfect groove The DrumCore search engine provides quick access to the grooves, fills, variations and drum sounds found in DrummerPacks. Search DrummerPack content based on drummer, style (rock, funk, country, and others), feel (straight, shuffle, etc.), time signature and tempo. It is a great tool for quickly finding the groove you need.
GrooveSets -building blocks for creating a great drum track
DrummerPack content is organized in "GrooveSets", that feature a basic groove, variations and fills that support standard song structure (intros, verse, chorus, etc.). The grooves are available as audio files and as MIDI with MIDI drumkit sounds that match the groove.
MIDI drumkits - access to impeccably recorded kits owned by A-list drummers
DrumCore LT includes a MIDI instrument that gives you instant access to the drumkits and percussion included with any DrummerPack. ReWire integration means that any pad (snares, kicks, etc.) can be routed to your recording software's mixer to allow custom mixes and processing with plug-ins. Want some great Latin percussion? Users can buy the new Luis Conte (Sergio Mendes, Madonna, Clapton, etc.) DrummerPack and get hit-proven MIDI grooves and percussion sounds.
The "Gabrielizer™" - fuel for the creative process
DrumCore's "Gabrielizer" technology intelligently generates variations on audio or MIDI content based on a set of "drummer rules". Cut it up from mild to wild with the Gabrielizer! Then export the file to your digital audio workstation (DAW) for cool, new beat variations.
It's also a DrumCore Demo- get a feel for how DrumCore works with LT which includes a free Ben Smith (Heart) GrooveSet
DrumCore LT also serves as a great demo of how DrumCore works. It comes with a minimal, example GrooveSet by Ben Smith, drummer for Heart and other artists.
DrumCore LT for PC and Macintosh will be available via the Submersible Music website in February, 2007.
