Sonoma Wire Works has released an update toDrumCore® 4, the critically acclaimed AAX/VST3/AU plug-in with tempo-stretchable audio and MIDI drum loops of inspiring performances by hit-proven drummers, plus multi-velocity samples of their drum kits in many styles.
DrumCore’s 4.2 update adds UI zooming, which helps DC4 fit better on laptops and smaller screens. Right click anywhere to set the zoom factor of the user interface to between 50-100%. Version 4.2 also fixes a server connection problem that caused issues with registration, content downloading, content purchasing, and version update notifications in the Settings Panel. Therefore, users of DrumCore 4 (4.1 and earlier) must update using update links supplied by firstname.lastname@example.org (not DC4’s Settings Panel). Other improvements are listed in the release notes.
