Wow What a Find! Simply Genius!
I started hearing rave reviews about this software program called DrDrum. Finally bit the bullet and took this software for a "spin" and WHOAA! Rarely say this but I got blown away sky high. Ladies and Gents, we are now in the 21st Century ! Bustin outta a beat and cranking out a banger like a pro was never easier or more intuitive. DrDrum has no steep learning curve and offers all the sophisticated beat maker tools that can turn a newbie zero into a DJ hero.
Like most of you, I always used to think that cranking out great beats required HUGE wads of "Benjamins" , years of study and learning "beatology", and having the right connection . But, Oh, was I ever wrong. This DrDrum software truly evens the playing fields; any newbie can produce ubber quality beats and tracks for just lunch money for you and your gal and a few minutes. I kid you not, you can lay down your beats and samples in a matter of minutes and be the DJ that matters.
It really doesn't matter if you've never created a beat before in your life...Even if you've never touched a sequencer or mixing board before...In fact, I'm as newbie as they come when it comes to busting outta a cool beat.
So here are the incredible specs for this software:
16 TRACK SEQUENCER !
DrDrum comes with a 16 track sequencer which makes it easy to compose and edit your masterpieces fast. This gives you an incredibly powerful yet highly intuitive interface allowing you to mix your beats without the headache that comes with learning other complicated software.
16 TRACKS OF SOUND !
DrDrum also brings you 16 tracks of stereo sound. You can change sounds and patterns with just two clicks. You also get several thousand built-in drumbeats, keys, FX and sounds. The coolest thing is that the final product exports as a 44.1 Stereo 16bit PCM .wav format! As you know, the 44.1 professional studio quality .wav file is what the pros use (not mp3). Moreover, DrDrum will also automatically create a video and upload your beat DIRECTLY to your own YouTube account. There's also controls to adjust the volume of each track and adjust the "pan effect" of each track and adjust the Low, Mid and High tones of each track.
MASSIVE 12 PAD DRUM !
If all this wasn't enough. DrDrum includes an easy-to-use drum machine which contains 12 Pads per kit and a HUGE database of BOOM BOOM booming, as well as exclusive mastered sounds to choose from so you can let your talent shine on through.
And if you wanna add your own samples, DrDrum makes it "drag-and-drop" simple to import your own custom sounds to use with your beats. Is that awesome or what?
There is also the option of mixing the volume on each channel any way you want, moving sounds around with just a couple clicks. All this results in professionally mastered sounds.
FOUR OCTAVE KEYBOARD !
I also loved, loved, loved the 4-octave keyboard where you can add Pianos, Guitars, Synth, Strings, FX and much more….imagine the you could knock out with this feature alone. Crazy!allowing you to knock out awesome beats. Crazy!
The keyboard also has the following features: Four octaves. No need for MIDI cables. All the sounds you could want, from sax to piano to FX samples. Ability to import more kits or your own sounds with 1 click. Thousands of stereo imaged sounds. Just one click to switch instruments. Easy to alter the Frequency, Resonance, LFOR and LFOA to create those slick DubStep sounds. Ability to overlap sounds in seconds.
Unlike other beat making software, you can upload your own samples and DrDrum will automatically scan the imported sound, find out what note it is and recreate ALL the other notes for you giving you a full 4 octaves from your single sample.
DRDRUM BLOWS AWAY THE COMPETITION
Like you, I looked at other beat making software and took a few of them for a spin. Didn't take me long to figure that those other software competitors will promise you the world but leave you shipwrecked on a desert island. Way too complicated, poor quality, and no support. Here's what makes DrDrum the best program of its kind out there:
1. The Competition uses MP3s for their samples. Bad.Bad. Bad. MP3s are compressed files, and can never be professional quality. When you export them they get compressed again which lowers the quality even more! What you have left, my friend, is a sorry-excuse for "a master track" that is double compressed and toxic to the industry standard. We're talking "8-track cassettes!" You'll be laughed out of Motown.
2. The Competition doesn't give you enough samples and the sample qualities are way low on the quality scale. Think for a moment. If you just get a few dozen MP3s to play with, you won't be coming up with any good beats antime soon. Their samples are scraped together from amateur wannabe musicians which will make your beats sound like they were made on a phone keypad by my shortie.
3. More importantly, the competitor's software is far too technical and complicated! Its easier learning the Greek language than figuring out what to do with this other software.
Dr Drum is completely intuitive and anyone can learn how to master it in a few hours. Dr Drum is the real deal. You'll be exporting professional, club quality tracks the same day you install it on your computer. There is almost no learning curve at all. Every song you make will be a banger! It used to be that it could take days or even weeks to lay down a high-quality beat and mix in your samples. DrDrum built the easiest to user interface and takes the time to teach you exactly how to use it. You can even import any sound you need in a matter of seconds. You'll have access to the same tools as the pros use, but at a fraction of the cost. We've got you covered! It's so simple....
Best of all, it costs much less than any other professional beat-making system on the market today.
Now the icing on the cake for me was the simple fact that you get all this great value and quality for a price far lower than the competition. So right now, you can have the whole enchilada for NOT $329.95, NOT $297, NOT $197, NOT $97, but $29.95... if you wait it might cost you double, triple or may even return to its recommend price of $329.95.
