TheDrumSource is a sample based drum machine VSTi with a sequencer and a built in sample browser.
It looks and "feels" like a classic (x0x) hardware drum machine. TheDrumSource is designed with the purpose to be very simple and easy to work with even if you are used to work with hardware drum machines or not. The built in sample browser in TheDrumsource makes it very easy to navigate through your samples. The sequencer can be running when looking for new samples. You will hear the sample the moment you selects it. There is also a quick button to select the previous and next sample in the same directory as the current selected sample. TheDrumsource has a very short time to get started on making your beats.
Supported file formates include: AIFC, AIFF, AU, CAF, FLAC, HTK, IFF, MAT4, MAT5, OGG, PAF, PVF, RAW, SD2, SF, SND, SVX, VOC, W64, WAV, and XI.
It runs in 3 modes:
- SYNC: The sequencer is synced by the host (DAW) and you control which of the 24 track to be played with MIDI (octave 2 and 3).
- MIDI: The samples can be played through midi keyboard (octave 1) with the sequencer turned off.
- RUN: Lets you play around with the TheDrumsource sequencer when your host (DAW) is not running.
