Drum Tree is the flagship drum sound library of professional virtual instrument makers PREMIER SOUND FACTORY®, and is the work of a sound engineer who has spent 20 years seeking the essential elements of what makes a top class piece of music.
In spite of its cute, colorful design, Drum Tree packs a serious punch and an unprecedented deep and powerful sound energy.

You will not be able to contain your surprise and delight the first time you truly experience the benefits and reality of the mastering and mixing process that has been undertaken for Drum Tree.
Inspired by legend: Choose your taste in drumming, not the brand of a drum.
The representative drumming style and sounds of 26 different genres. A huge collection, containing 41 varieties of snare, 67 cymbal varieties, 185 piece variation options and 8,000 samples. (17GB)
With just the click of a button, Drum Tree intuitively and instantly provides you with your desired sound and genre.
Drum Tree is a product that, through tremendous cost, effort and dedication has pursued and captured the techniques of the legendary songs, genre by genre and with the utmost respect.
Drum Tree can of course be used in 44.1kHz or 48kHz, but we recommend playing it in 96kHz. It's much better without the sampler's automatic sample rate converter.
Mastered @ PREMIER Mastering Studio. Let the sun shine inspiration down on you, as you devote yourself to creating that great song.
Everything was treated with analog gear by a dedicated sound engineer with over 15 years of experience in the business. Therefore, unless you have some very particular sound, you are better off not using plugins.
I didn’t want to intentionally create poor quality sound just to mimic the recordings of old, rather I mixed the classic recording method with the 21st century and digital era of 2016, using the newest and best equipment. I used multiple Lavry AD122-96 for recording, not just for mastering.
One example of a method I implemented to add sweet and smooth flavor to the recording, was the use of an original custom box of Western Electric tubes for some of the vintage kits, one of my favorite pieces of gear.
Not only simple snares, plenty of brush work and multiple effect snares with cymbals and tambourine are available.
Simple, Easy, Fast: The Various options to help you produce rich sounds, full of human expression with simple midi.
Sustain pedal kick mode
Sustain pedal kick mode allows you to hit kicks velocity at 100 (C1) using your foot with piano pedal, like a drummer.
Cycle Round Robin
Each key has plenty of sample layers (max 54 layers). Every key has 2 cycle round robins alternating between right and left hand.
Cute humanizing option
The velocity randomizer is intelligently distributed and expands into a maximum of 8 round robins in the direction the creator wants.
Therefore, usually the snare and kick maintain perfect results, even if the velocity always stays at 100. No Joke.
Roll Activation Switch
Using the piano pedal allows you to hold a sextuplet note. Sextuplet notes and 32nd note rolls can also be achieved through A0 and B0 key switches.
This is a very useful feature that gives you great creativity, such as introducing snare ghost notes, cymbal rolls and double kick which can be difficult to do manually.
Tempo, accent, and humanity are all adjustable. It will follow the tempo of your host while it is running.
Checking Results Easily with "Play Demo"
Playing the MIDI demo feature helps you to see the difference of your edit in real time. You can also register your own midi preset for demo by simply putting it in the "Patterns folder."
The Cymbal Mute option
This option allows you to mute all cymbals with the G0 key.
Create your own original kit: Learn from the past and create the future sound
"Tree" represents the past, present and future. Our product incorporates the history of music culture, not in an attempt to mimic it, but to utilise it in making the next generation of music. This why so much sound editing freedom is included in Drum Tree.
Automation and midi control are available by right clicking knobs.
Drum Tree: Key Map
"Drum Tree is incredible! Not only are the sounds great, but they really stand up in tracks and don't get drowned out by other instruments. Just like other products in the PREMIER series, it really leaves a deep lasting impression! It really hits the mark, almost too good! After I’ve spent a little more time using it, please allow me to send more of my thoughts on it! It truly is wonderful."
