"Your drums can be as original as your music. After spending hours crafting the perfect song, why would you settle for a less than perfect drum pattern? Sure, drum loops work for sketching out ideas. But, your finished song deserves something more original. Introducing DrumStar, a vst instrument that will help you create original drum patterns. It includes a sampler that's optimized for drums, and a sequencer that's flexible and fun to use. So really, there's no excuse for boring drum patterns.
