Make Music

Create with or without an instrument.

Start making professional-sounding music straight away. Plug in your guitar or mic and choose from a jaw-dropping array of realistic amps and effects. You can even create astonishingly human-sounding drum tracks and become inspired by thousands of loops from popular genres like EDM, Hip-Hop, Indie and more.

Jam with drummers of every style.

Drummer, the virtual session player created using the industry’s top session drummers and recording engineers, features 28 beat‑making drummers and three percussionists. From EDM, Dubstep and Hip-Hop to Latin, Metal and Blues, whatever beat your song needs, there’s an incredible selection of musicians to play it.

Each drummer has a signature kit that lets you produce a variety of groove and fill combinations. Use the intuitive controls to enable and disable individual sounds while you create a beat with kick, snare, cymbals and all the cowbell you want. If you need a little inspiration, Drummer Loops gives you a diverse collection of prerecorded acoustic and electronic loops that can be easily customised and added to your song.
