DrumCore gives songwriters and composers access to grooves and instrument sounds of over a dozen famous drummers and percussionists. It includes a library of both audio loops and MIDI grooves plus a software drum instrument for Mac OS X and Windows. DrumCore covers a multitude of styles – including rock, blues, metal, prog, alt-rock, pop, jazz, urban, funk, Latin, reggae and others.

DrumCore FREE v3 is NOT just a demo that times-out. Start writing music with the DrumCore FREE plugin now! Get more drum loops, drum kits, and the DrumCore Toolkit by purchasing the full version, DrumCore 3 or DrumCore Deluxe! Note: Listen to previews on those product pages.

DrumCore FREE is a fully working version of the DrumCore 3 AU/VSTi/RTAS plug-in. The ways it differs are:

DRUMKITS
DrumCore FREE only includes two (2) kits vs. DrumCore which has over 100, and DrumCore Deluxe, which has even more! DrumCore FREE Kits include a great rock/pop kit, a subwoofer-thumpin' hip-hop kit, and a sprinkling of Latin Percussion sounds. DrumCore FREE is not expandable with add-on DrummerPacks, which include more DrumKits, like DrumCore and DrumCore Deluxe are.

GROOVES
DrumCore FREE only includes the Basic Beats "Rock Pop 101" GrooveSet (as both audio loops and MIDI) plus the Urban GT "HipHop Classics (1-4)" and Song Beat GrooveSets (as MIDI files) vs. the thousands of grooves in DrumCore and DrumCore Deluxe. DrumCore FREE is not expandable with add-on DrummerPacks, which include more GrooveSets, like DrumCore and DrumCore Deluxe are.

DRUMCORE TOOLKIT
DrumCore FREE only includes the DrumCore plug-in, and not the toolkit app. DrumCore 3 and DrumCore Deluxe include both the DrumCore plug-in and the "DrumCore Toolkit" standalone application, which let users add their own audio loops and drum samples to DrumCore.

Что бы перетянуть миди трек на дорожку в DAW, нажмите на название миди стиля (В середине плагина), и ведите мышкой на трэк в Вашей программе.

Hi guys ! I 've installed Windows 10, re-install Pro tools 10 then re-install drumcore 3 free. Everything is working (like midi eidting with correct sounds etc) but I can't drag and drop midi grooves into my track. I can't drag/drop at all, it's not working anymore. Have you any idea? I feel like it's not working on win 10. I had win 7 before (as well in 64 bits) and worked perfectly...

The free demo version is VERY useful, sounds great and unlike other free versions offers complete drum-sets and plenty of tweaking options, including the ability to tune tune each individual drum and cymbal. You get both wav files as well as the same parts done in midi, so you can edit them to your liking. Unfortunately the full paid versions are expensive. Drum core 4 is VERY VERY expensive and even the now old Drumcore 3 is $200 or more.

Played around with different free and paid drums. I can tell this one is by far ahead of most plugins.

This needs 6 stars. Absolutely the best freebie by a wide margin. After using DC free I purchased the full product and the expansion kit. DC4 is coming out soon.

Does drumcore free have tempo setting to change tempo?

I have used plenty of drum instruments ranging renowned brands like Native Instruments, MDrummer, UVI as well as soundfonts, but in my opinion DrumCore Free beats them all with its resonating, pulsating drums. Sounds live as if playing next to you. Awesome, rocking...

Love it, I can get realistic sounds, and you can fuzz around with midi too!

Super ! Some limits as free version but super indeed . I use it along with MDrummer small (both at the same time) and get groovy :-) Thomson's Ludwig kit is really rockin' as it's .wav patterns !

I think if you know how to use this VST and use their full potential, this VST can be better than others like EZDrummer... And It's Free!
