Start making professional‑sounding music straightaway. 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 more than a thousand loops from popular genres like EDM, Hip Hop, Indie and more.

Create EDM and Hip Hop beats like a pro.

Drummer, the virtual session player created using some of the industry’s top session drummers and recording engineers, features 10 beat‑making drummers in a range of electronic and Hip Hop music styles, including EDM, Dubstep and Trap. Drummer also comes with 18 session players and acoustic kits covering popular genres like Rock, Alternative and R&B. So you can choose from a total of 28 drummers to help fuel your creativity.

Each drummer has its own signature drum kit that lets you produce a variety of groove and fill combinations.
