Virtual Drummer DEEP - Audio Plugin - Avid

Soulful drums with a big heart

Let’s get it on

These beats run deep. If that’s a quality you’re looking to elicit in your music, Virtual Drummer is here to help. And we mean deep as in soulful, deep as in complex and intricate. Deepness as a measure of emotions.

Sweet Soul music

Soul and funk dominated the music biz during the 1960s and 1970s. And we think for a good reason! These styles were predominantly played by African-American musicians like Stevie Wonder, James Brown, and Marvin Gaye. Soul music took the stages, record players and musical hearts of the world by storm, driven by iconic rhythm sections like the Funk Brothers and Booker T. & The M.G.’s.

Band members

DEEP plays perfectly along with Virtual Bassist DANDY. While you may use DEEP on its own, the included Styles are made-to-match with the bass phrases in DANDY. To make joining the two easy for you, the available Styles have got matching names. Just pick the same style name in DANDY and DEEP and create perfectly aligned bass and drum backings in a breeze.

From retro to metro

Soul music emphasizes lyrics, vocal melodies, and vocal harmonies. You could see the roots as gospel music without the religious factor. Typical songs emphasize melody and vocals. Soul music is much less complex than funk music and was more commercially successful. This means soul drumming features more basic patterns with fewer embellishments.

Edgy and energetic

DEEP covers not only soulful and groovy genres but feels also right at home with pop, rock and alternative vibes. Make your production dazzling, with real-world drumming performances, that breathe artistic life into your track.

Features at a Glance

Quickly customize the sound of each of the five drum kits: Dial in some extra dirt and energy with the Grit control or by using one of our six Mix Presetsfrom gentle and sophisticated to fierce and powerful!

Use the Mix Presets to shape the overall sound. Each Mix Preset swaps out an entire multi-bus effect chain for every instrument channel and saves you time and nerves.

Finalize and finetune your drum mix by individually adjusting the volume of each component of the kit including separate controls for overhead & room mics before adding a touch of reverb.
