EastWest has released ProDrummer 1 & 2, new dedicated drum virtual instruments that combine meticulously recorded drum sounds, pre-mixed drum kits by top recording and mix engineers with drums performed by top drummers, and MIDI drum grooves. The first two volumes of ProDrummer are new additions to the catalog of EastWest ‘s newly launched subscription model Composer Cloud starting at $29.99/month, or can be purchased individually for $199 each.
EastWest producer Doug Rogers co-produced both ProDrummer 1 & 2. The first volume in the ProDrummer series includes approximately 60 Gigabytes of drum sounds and kits produced by Grammy-winning engineer Mark “Spike” Stent (Coldplay, Muse, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Usher, U2, Madonna, Linkin Park, Björk, Depeche Mode, Maroon 5, Moby, No Doubt, Oasis and more) and Doug Rogers, with drums played by Steven Sidelnyk (Madonna, Seal, Massive Attack).
The second volume in the ProDrummer series includes approximately 40 Gigabytes of drum sounds and kits produced and pre-mixed by producer, mixer and engineer Joe Chiccarelli (U2, Beck, The Killers, The Raconteurs, The White Stripes, The Strokes, Morrissey, Jason Mraz, Elton John, My Morning Jacket, Rufus Wainwright, Cafe Tacuba and more) and Doug Rogers, with drums played by Matt Chamberlain (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Gabriel, etc.).
ProDrummer features a combined 100 Gigabytes of professional drum sounds in two volumes, and 16 channels of pre-mixed drum kits from the producers using the state-of-the-art tools in the ProDrummer software. The producer’s drum mixes can be used as they are, or as starting points to customize to the users’ needs and taste with the included tools, such as Solid State Logic EQ and Dynamics, Transient Shaper, and the Stereo Bus Compressor; Ohmforce’s Ohmicide multiband dynamics and distortion effects processor (which works well for creating EDM drum tracks); plus EastWest’s Velocity Processor, Amp Simulator with 80 presets, and Expanded Convolution Reverb with 726 Additional Reverb presets. All parameters in ProDrummer are user adjustable and can be saved as custom user presets.
ProDrummer also includes more than 14,000 MIDI drum grooves in many different styles. The Groove Search Engine allows the user to quickly find the right grooves, create favorites and assemble the drum track right inside ProDrummer with the built in sequencer. The drum tracks can then be exported into any DAW to add additional instruments and vocals.
