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 brand-new additions to the catalog of EASTWEST's newly launched subscription model Composer Cloud or can be purchased individually.
"ProDrummer 1 & 2 are the most powerful and easy to use drum virtual instruments on the market," says producer Doug Rogers, "Typically, you need several products to create great drum tracks. We hit the trifecta of sounds, mixes and performances in one package, giving users all the tools they need in a user friendly interface to create superb drum tracks. The producers I worked with on this project are some of the best mixers in the music industry, working with top artists every day that rely on their expertise to keep them at the top of the charts. ProDrummer is most likely the only opportunity users will have to include drum tracks recorded and mixed by them included in their songs."
Apart from a combined 100 Gigabytes of professional drum sounds in the two volumes, ProDrummer also features 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 legendary Stereo Bus Compressor; Ohmforce's Ohmicide multiband dynamics and distortion effects processor (perfect for creating EDM drum tracks); plus EASTWEST's Velocity Processor, Amp Simulator with 80 presets, and Expanded Convolution Reverb with 726 Additional Reverb Pre-sets. All parameters in ProDrummer are user adjustable and can be saved as custom user pre-sets.
ProDrummer also includes over 14,000 MIDI drum grooves in many different styles which makes it easy to build the drum track of any song. 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.
Multi-award winning EASTWEST producer Doug Rogers has worked once again with the elite of the industry: 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.).

His virtual instrument productions include ProDrummer 1 and ProDrummer 2; Steven Wilson's Ghostwriter; Hollywood Strings, Hollywood Brass, Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds, and Hollywood Orchestral Percussion; The Dark Side; Fab Four; Symphonic Orchestra; Symphonic Choirs; EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos and more.
