SSD 4 sample player

The SSD player is a drum production powerhouse. Crafted from the ground up by Slate’s award-winning development team, creators of Slate’s Trigger drum replacement processor, the features and functionality of the SSD player are designed in accordance with a recording drummer’s perspective to ensure musicality and great sound first. Compatible with Mac/PC (AAX, RTAS, VST, AU), the SSD Player is extremely easy and intuitive to use. Loading, customizing, and mixing kits; loading and auditioning MIDI grooves; customizing MIDI maps; and routing to your DAW are all a breeze with the SSD Player. Plus, in recognition of the needs of modern drum production, it even lets you load and mix your own drum samples with the Slate drum kits to differentiate your drum tracks from other SSD users.

25 kits spanning multiple genres

SSD 4.0 Platinum features dozens of Deluxe Series kits that were painstakingly recorded without losing musical perspective, resulting in remarkably natural playability. In SSD4 Platinum, you’ll find rock, metal, vintage, indie, and funk Deluxe Kits—25 drum kits in all, so you can find the right sounds for the song.

Classic Mix Ready and Signature Kits

 SSD4 Platinum features the return the classic Slate “Mix Ready” kits. However, not content to simply load the SSD4 Platinum with existing kits, all of the Mix Ready kits have been reprogrammed for better sound, response, and realism. These classic kits also include Slate Drums’ renowned “Signature Kits”, which are drum kits modeled to give you the signature drum sounds of famous artists and albums. Included in these classic kits is the famous “Old Zep” kit, a drum kit recorded in a stone castle that models the classic Led Zeppelin sound.

Soultone cymbal pack

SSD4 now includes a cymbal pack from Soultone Cymbals. These custom Turkish cymbals are some of the best sounding in the world. As any drummer knows, cymbals are the most personal part of a drum kit, and nothing says sampled drums like generic sounding cymbals. That’s why Steven Slate chose Soultone Cymbals; these cymbals give the drum kits the ultimate brass accompaniment, from the dark Vintage Series to the bright and shimmery Extreme Series.

Dance kit

Since electronica has maintained a steady grip on the popular music scene, it’s only right to give SSD4 users their due. SSD4 includes a dance kit in the urban/dance/house/electro genre. Instead of thin-sounding digital kits, this kit is processed with boutique analog gear to provide the fat, release-ready sound you’ll want for your pop, urban, and dance mixes.
