Soulful Drums With a Big Heart

Contemporary drummer with a 60s & 70s vibe

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. DEEP is UJAM’s most spirited drummer, standing on the shoulders of traditional genres like Soul and Funk, with its gaze firmly set on contemporary styles and timeless future classics.

What’s in there?

30 styles with 690 drum patterns, 70 sound designer presets

5 drum kits, 6 mix presets

Drag-and-drop phrases to DAW for detailed note editing

Retro morph control called “Grit”

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.

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.

Incredible detail

DEEP comes with up to 60 velocity layers per instrument. Hyper realism by UJAM’s dynamic round-robin algorithm makes your drums sound like the real thing. All sounds were recorded with a selection of both vintage and modern direct microphones. You get absolute mix freedom thanks to stereo pairs of overhead and room mics.

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.
