iZotope has released iDrum 1.6, a Windows XP/Vista compatible version of its iDrum virtual drum machine software. The update is free for registered iDrum customers.
iDrum turns a Mac or PC into a virtual drum machine. iDrum can utilize users’ customized samples or those from professionally produced libraries. Beats in iDrum can be created from its internal step sequencer or by playing a MIDI controller, electronic drum kit, or even a QWERTY keyboard.
iDrum runs as both a standalone native OS X and Windows application and as a plug-in for Pro Tools, GarageBand, Logic, Ableton Live, SONAR, Cubase and more.
iDrum comes with hundreds of professional drum samples arranged in nearly two hundred files, each with its own preset patterns. Parts, samples, and kits can be mixed and matched. Users can also import their own WAV and AIFF files to build custom kits.
