Best Drum Software & VST Plugins

Published: Thu July 31, 2014  News Feed


Finding the best drum software is a bit of a minefield. Good news though - we've decided to make it easier for you!

If you are looking for some free VST drum machines then these are useable but can be very limited when trying to achieve a certain sound.

There are some powerful pieces of drum software out there that for not much more, will make a hell of a difference. Here's our top picks.


EZ Drummer 2 BreakTweaker Superior Drummer 2.2

Affordable, easy to use and it's just had a complete audio engine/interface rehaul. Recommended for musicians that want top results with little hassle.
iZotope Break Tweaker drum software electro grunge distorted heavy weird
Breaktweaker bridges the gap between melody and rhythm and creates some truly powerful beats. For users that want complex control with the aim to create unusual drum beats.
Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.2 drum machine software best vst plugin vsti beats
The bigger brother of EZ drummer that contains more options and gives you more control over the output of your drums. VERY realistic sounding.

With drum software such as Toontrack EZ drummer 2 and Superior Drummer 2.2 you can purchase 'EZX' and 'MIDI' packs for not much at all that allow you to expand your possibilities. Here's how they work:

MIDI PACKS - If you bought the Jazz MIDI pack you will have a huge selection of jazz performances that you can put through one of your drum kits on EZ Drummer or Superior Drummer. It's like buying a pro jazz drummer for your band.

EZX PACKS - These are your drum sounds. It's like you are buying a selection of new drum kits for your drummer. The Drum Kit From Hell expansion pack would give you access to a range of heavy metal drum kits - if you paired this up with the Metal Beats MIDI then you would pretty much have a pro drummer playing through one of the best sounding kits in the world.

And the good news is, we currently have 50% off lots of EZX and MIDI packs for Toontrack drum software!
