Drumforge has announced the release of its first drum sampler, compatible for the AAX, AU, and VST3 formats to support the Drumforge 1 Ultimate sample library.

The sampler is highly optimized for speed, ease of use, features a 60+ instrument library, and contains a comprehensive mixer with built-in premium DSP modules. It includes over 50+ fully mixed drum kit presets made by some of the world’s top producers and mixing engineers.

The sampler is also one of the first to be built on community, meaning that Drumforge will be treating this as a living and growing platform by taking the most popular user generated requests and providing free updates in the future.
