This virtual instrument offers a comprehensive collection of drum sounds that cater to a wide array of musical styles and genres. DW Soundworks is the solution for DW, Gretsch, and Slingerland drum sounds.

DW Soundworks samples capture the authentic tonality of the company’s drums for a realistic audio experience. The core library features drum kit samples from the DW Collector’s Series® line including DW Pure Maple®, DW Maple Mahogany and limited-edition kits no longer in production including the DW 50th Anniversary and DW Pure Almond® kits. Additionally, DW Soundworks includes a Gretsch USA Custom kit, and the personal 1958 Slingerland kit of DW’s founder Don Lombardi. The drums were sampled to the exacting specifications of DW with 18 dynamic layers per sample and recorded at the DW factory with best-in-class microphones, high-quality microphone preamplifiers plus a variety of compressors and equalizers. Future expansion packs will offer users even more drum kit choices.
