The Drum Source

The Drum Source is a sample based drum machine VST instrument with a sequencer. It looks and “feels” like a classic (x0x) hardware drum machine. The built in sample browser makes it very easy to navigate through your samples. With the previous and next sample buttons you can quickly change a sample.

The Drum Source

Features:

  • Built in sample browser suited for a easy workflow when working with samples. And almost all of TheDrumSource’s functions is still available while browsing

  • The RUN mode. Lets you play around with the TheDrumsource sequencer even if your host is not playing
