If you are looking for a high-quality drum kit plugin for free, Sennheiser’s DrumMic’a is a top choice. Along with the aforementioned MT Power Drum Kit 2, both can cover a wide variety of drum sounds for various types of music.
One of the shortcomings with the free DAWs I posted about last month is that most don’t come with any kind of good drum software to use. Even full DAWs like Pro Tools don’t come with good drum software (Boom isn’t useful for much).
So for this post I wanted to point out Sennheiser DrumMic’a.
May 06, 2019 EZdrummer it is a comprehensive drum instrument plug-in by Toontrack supporting all the common Mac and Windows formats employing meticulously recorded samples of real drum kits that can be played. Yes, the module is class compliant and fully support class complaint operating systems. However, the DM6 is an older Alesis product. New Mac operating systems are officially supported with the DM6 but we've had many reports of users have no issues with the module and their operating system. I am a total beginner. Had recently bought an Alesis DM Lite edrums kit. It has 10 built in drum kits and USB Midi output. It works fine with MacBook / GarageBand. However, individual instruments inside a kit cannot be changed from the Alesis DM Lite box. For example swap the ride cymbal with cowbell / tambourine / clap / second crash. Download this app from Microsoft Store for Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 Mobile, Windows Phone 8.1, Windows Phone 8, Windows 10 Team (Surface Hub). See screenshots, read the latest customer reviews, and compare ratings for Dubstep Drum Pads Pro.
It’s completely free to download and use, and you’ll be absolutely shocked by how many features it offers and the sound quality for being free (see video below for a demo). It even has a bunch of MIDI drum loops included.
The only catch is you have to setup an account and register to get the free serial number. That’s normally not an issue but the website is in German and for some reason Google Translate doesn’t work on it so you have to guess your way through the registration process unless you read German.
Plus the download file is several GBs in size so it can take a really long time to download.
Alesis Drum Software For Mac Computer
Since I already have EZdrummer 2 I’m not going to go through all that trouble just to try it out, even though it does look like fun to test, but if you don’t have any drum software and don’t want to spend a bunch of cash DrumMic’a is a good option to have if you need it.

Drums are the backbone of most songs; it’s pretty hard to write music without drums. Even just practicing guitar is a lot more satisfying playing along with drums instead of a boring click track.
To use DrumMic’a you also have to download and install the free version of Kontakt 5 Player if you don’t already have Kontakt.
