German-American plug-in maker UJAM announce their sixth drum plug-in: Virtual Drummer HOT

Here’s what UJAM says about HOT: 

“The majority of today’s charting tracks use electronic drum samples or highly processed combinations of sample layers. However, these samples must undergo extensive engineering to sit properly in a radio-ready mix, as they are often stale, lifeless and difficult to manipulate.

Virtual Drummer HOT provides real drum performances with punchy drum machine-like processing to replace your sample library with more lively and energizing drum grooves.”

HOT adds to the Virtual Drummer series including BRUTE (rock, grunge, punk), DEEP (neo soul drums) SOLID (for top-notch studio drum tracks), HEAVY (from soft rock rock ballads to overdrive grunge) and PHAT (for Hip Hop and Funk beats). 

HOT is available now in VST 3, AU 2 and AAX formats also as a free, fully functional trial at It’s the first natively Apple Silicon compatible plug-in of the Virtual Drummer series.
