GET THE DRUM SOUNDS OF YOUR DREAMS

Steven Slate Drums 5 is a Drum Virtual Instrument and Sample Library with 103 Kick Drums, 111 Snares, Hundreds of Tom/Cymbal/Percussion Sounds, and 1,000 Grooves.

Since 2005, Steven Slate’s drum samples have been the secret sauce behind the massive drum tones of the industry’s heaviest hitmakers. Now, with Steven Slate Drums 5, the largest and most streamlined SSD library yet, building larger-than-life drum tracks entirely inside the box couldn’t be easier — even for the non-drummer. A completely redesigned user interface, an additional 50 precision-sampled Deluxe 2 drum instruments, and a new groove library featuring 1,000 drag-and-drop rhythms and fills make SSD5 the shortest route to radio-ready drums and backing tracks. Choose from several artist-modeled preset kits for instant inspiration, or piece together your dream kit from 84 kicks, 77 snares, and hundreds of toms, cymbals, and percussion sounds. In addition, a completely reworked mapping section, complete with velocity and dynamics curves for each drum, makes Steven Slate Drums 5 the ultimate engine for electronic drum kits.

EASY EDITING

SSD5 makes editing your kits a breeze. Select individual drums, customize the mics and routing, choose your MIDI maps, customize your velocity and dynamic curves for each drums, and build your custom tone exactly as you want it.

MIX IT

SSD5’s mixer allows you to get the perfect mix of your drums, with easy access to ambient room mics and close mics. It allows you to easily route your drums discretely to your DAW so you can use your favorite plugins to get the ultimate drum tone. We also added a new master volume control to the entire plugin.

MAP IT

Customize your MIDI Map with SSD5’s completely reworked MIDI MAP converter. Everything in a kit preset is easily mappable and re-mappable plus you can quickly load mapping presets.
