Seattle, WA (January 18, 2006)–Submersible Music has announced a deal with Berklee College of Music that will put complimentary copies of DrumCore, its software for creating drum tracks, on the laptop of every incoming Berklee freshman. Submersible Music, an affiliate of investor Paul G. Allen’s investment and project company Vulcan Inc., will also make DrumCore available free to any other Berklee student who wishes to try it. DrumCore is targeted at producers, composers, and musicians who need drum content in a multitude of styles.
“DrumCore is a great music-making tool that can also act as a librarian for students’ own loops,” said Dave Dysart, Submersible Music project manager “With content by well-known and respected drummers, students can learn how to build drum parts by using the loops creatively–and hopefully the grooves will inspire them to write their own new material.”
“Paul Allen has been an early supporter of important endeavors in American music, such as the Experience Music Project,” said Roger Brown, president of Berklee College of Music. “We are proud that he has chosen, through Submersible Music, to recognize and support Berklee and its role in preparing the next generation of contemporary, digital musicians.”
DrumCore contains drum loops, fills hits and kits by renowned drummers, including Alan White (John Lennon, Yes), Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), Sly Dunbar (Bob Marley), Zoro (Lenny Kravitz), Jeff Anthony (Sheryl Crow), John Bishop (Ernie Watts), Ben Smith (Heart), Tony Braunagel (Bonnie Raitt), Ned Douglas (Dave Stewart), DJ Syze-up (Ultra Nate), and Michael Shrieve (Santana), and others.
DrumCore also features export capabilities to popular audio workstations software, a MIDI drum module and ReWire support for easier integration with other applications and audio software.
