The drum samples are hosted in a customized version of the Accent plugin from Platinum Samples. It is a full drum plugin complete with individual kit piece bleed into room and overhead mics. Per piece trim, phase invert, tuning, envelope control, effects processing, and aux routing.

Host Third-party Plugins

One standout feature in the mixer is the ability to host third-party VST and AU effects plugins along side the internal ones that ship with the instrument.

MIDI Grooves

To round things out, Galaxy Drums ships with a nicely thought out MIDI groove library. There are controls to customize the timing and feel of the patterns before dragging them into your DAW. There is also an extensive Mapping page, for use with a variety of external MIDI drum controllers.

Galaxy Drums runs on both Windows (Windows 7, 8/8.1 or 10) and Mac OS 10.7 or higher.
