We update our products regularly so we can make them better for you. On Thursday, October 8th 2020 we released version 2.1 of Virtual Drummer!


If you own a 2nd generation Virtual Drummer, such as HEAVY 2, SOLID 2 or PHAT 2, please head over to your account to download the free 2.1 updates.
Please note that 1st generation Virtual Drummers won’t update automatically, upgrade offers to the 2nd generation are available for 19 EUR / USD per plug-in.


Below you’ll find what’s new:


  • You can now quantize Virtual Drummer to match the playback tempo of your DAW. Choose a starting point from the current grid, 1/4, 1/8, or 1/16 notes. You’ll never miss a beat again – promised!
  • PreSonus Studio One users running on version 4.6.2 or later will now find style names and drum-elements printed on the keys of their piano roll. This makes finding the right styles and drums for your track a walk in the park.
  • Another cool feature to speed up your production: the scale range of styles and instruments are highlighted on the left side of your piano roll.
  • Last but not least, we also fixed some minor bugs for a better workflow.
