Smells like mean drumming

For rock, grunge, punk, and cross-over styles

From nineties to noughties

Contemporary hard-and-heavy music genres driven by a very specific drumming style: loud, wild, edgy and cutting through the mix. Both drum sounds and playing are rooted in aesthetics invented about two decades ago. Virtual Drummer BRUTE features the essential sounds and styles from Grunge to NuMetal.
In a nutshell: BRUTE is the Virtual Drummer for you, if HEAVY 2 is too Metal-ish and SOLID 2 not rocking hard enough.

From Seattle with ̶l̶̶o̶̶v̶̶e̶̶ ̶ attitude

In the early 1990s, a guitar-heavy new musical category set out to conquer the hearts and ears of the audience. A new generation of artists would unleash distorted guitars, angry drums, and bucketloads of attitude onto an audience that was suddenly keen to rock out again. Influenced by classic rock of the 1960s and ’70s, and in opposition to the synthetic aesthetics of the prior decade, bands like Rage Against The Machine, Nirvana, Soundgarden, or Alice in Chains popularized the next incarnation of Rock music. Its playbook is still today the go-to for guitar-heavy hard rocking styles.

Drumming in the name of

Programming realistic drum tracks can be daunting. With BRUTE it’s fast and easy, so you can focus on your music!

Punchy, crisp character

What makes BRUTE special? First and foremost it has been designed, recorded and processed to do one thing really well: Compete with layered walls of distorted guitars while maintaining character and detail. This was a tricky challenge… The solution was to record with three different sets of microphones that emphasize different aspects of the drum sound.

Each of the three microphone sets has a specific sonic purpose:

Click/Smack
The vintage Sennheiser MD21 from the 1960s emphasizes the attack transients. The source signal was processed with a Manley Voxbox.

Grit/Dirt
Vintage tube and ribbon overhead mics. This is where the character is captured. All the organic noise and resonances that give a warm, coarse and natural quality.

Clean/Nice
Modern high-spec Schoeps microphones that capture the sound ’as is’. With as little colorization and distortion as possible. For an expensive and glossy character.

NOFX? Well, there are at least a few...

Mix Presets shape the overall sound by swapping out an entire multi-bus effect chain for every channel under the hood. Saves you time and nerves wrestling with the bus system of your DAW:
