Full library of impeccably recorded drums.

At the heart of Steven Slate Drums 4.0 Platinum is the SSD Player, a state-of-the-art Mac/PC (VST, RTAS, AU) drum sampler built from the ground up by the award-winning development team behind the Slate Digital TRIGGER drum replacement processor. The SSD Player is extremely easy and intuitive to use. Loading kits, customizing kits, mixing kits, loading and auditioning MIDI grooves, customizing MIDI maps, and routing discretely to your workstation are easy with the SSD Player. It even lets you load your own drum samples to mix in with the Slate drum kits.

100 Kits means that your drum sounds are covered. New in 4.0 are dozens of new DELUXE series kits that were recorded with extreme precision, resulting in a natural playability. In SSD4 Platinum, you'll find Rock, Metal, Vintage, Indie, Funk, and even Jazz/Brushes Deluxe Kits.

SSD4 Platinum also brings back the classic Slate "Mix Ready" kits, but all reprogrammed for better sound, response, and realism. Included in these classic kits are the famous "Signature Kits," which are drum kits modeled after famous sounding artists and albums. Signature Kits include: Steely Dan, Metallica, Dream Theater, Led Zeppelin, Green Day, Nirvana, Pantera, Deftones, AC/DC, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Motley Crue.

SSD4 also features a brand new cymbal pack from Soultone Cymbals. These custom Turkish cymbals are some of the best sounding in the world. From the dark VINTAGE series to the bright and shimmery EXTREME series, these cymbals give the drum kits the ultimate brass accompaniment.

New in SSD4 are five kits in the Urban/Dance/House/Electro genre designed by producer Griffin Boice. These kits are processed with boutique analog gear to provide the fat, radio-ready sound you'll want for your pop, urban, and dance mixes.

        Comments about Steven Slate Drums SLATE DIGITAL SSD4 PLATINUM VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT:

        Amazing sounds come from this program. There's many different kits to choose from and then there's complete customization available. It is very choosy with DAWs. Go to SSD's website to make sure you are compatible. I had to purchase a new DAW. There is a slight learning curve than can be difficult on some parts of the program. Overall, it is a wonderful buy and worth the money.

        • Live Triggered Sound

        Comments about Steven Slate Drums SLATE DIGITAL SSD4 PLATINUM VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT:

        I trigger these sounds live from Pearl Tru trac heads. Amazing software makes a pretty difficult process simple and easy. I got this knowing nothing about midi and drum samples and the software made it easy. I trigger these sounds from real drums with real cymbals and the mix is perfect.

        Junk, Don't Buy it; Purchase BDF 2

        By Dr. X

        from Midwest

        Pros

          Cons

          • Difficult to Navigate
          • Freezes or Crashes
          • Not Enough Audio Tools
          • Not Very Powerful

          Best Uses

            Comments about Steven Slate Drums SLATE DIGITAL SSD4 PLATINUM VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT:

            This has got to be one of the worst virtual instruments I've ever used. Tech support is an absolute joke and they clearly don't care. Major instability problems; you might as well light your money on fire. I strongly urge you to purchase BDF2 instead.
