RealiDrums is totally different from any other drum library. Check out this video to see why:
Welcome to your new favorite drum library
With RealiDrums, you’ll be working faster, you’ll be getting what we believe are the best sounds available, and most importantly, you’ll be having more fun doing it. Yes, seriously.
Don’t believe us? If you don’t think these are the best drums sounds you’ve heard, or if any aspect of RealiDrums disappoints you, send us an email within 30 days of purchase and we’ll give you your money back. We’re that confident in this instrument.
With RealiDrums, you get:
THE BIGGEST SELECTION
We believe this is the biggest (and I dare say, best sounding) drum collection you can buy. 42 different Snares, 7 different kicks, 11 hi hats, 24 rides, 33 crash cymbals, plus sidesticks and percussion elements.
When we say 42 snares, we don’t mean 42 snare mixes. These are actually 42 different drums. And for each one, we give you mixes from close mic to “Beast” mode. So it’s really like 4 x 42 = 168 snares. Same with kicks and all the other drums and cymbals.
THE FASTEST WORKFLOW
This means you can find the sound you need *fast*. No tweaking and tweaking, trying to massage the wrong drum into what you wish it sounded like. With RealiDrums, simply try another drum. And then another. All quickly, with no wait for load times.
We even include up/down buttons, as well as keyswitch opens for scrolling through drums, so you can click until you get to the drum with the perfect tone for your project. Want to hear the “Rock” mix of that drum? Or how about the “Room” mix? One click of a button. It couldn’t be faster or easier.
We even created a “Rack” page (one rack space for each drum), so you can see, and easily modify, each drum and cymbal, all at once.
THE MOST FUN GROOVE GENERATOR
Personally, I hate pages of MIDI loops that I have to audition one by one. When I see ads for “thousands of MIDI drum files!”, I consider that a bad thing. It’s simply too time consuming, plus I never seem to able to find exactly what I’m looking for.
Ours works completely differently. First you select one of our beats. (Even that’s quick and easy, since we have up/down buttons and keyswitches to make scrolling through beats quick and easy.)
Once you’ve selected that starting beat, you can modify it to sound busier or simpler (to extremes in either direction) by simply moving the “Complexity Sliders.” These Complexity Sliders are independent, so you can make the hi hat busier, but make the kick simpler and maybe add sparse (or busy) toms to the rhythm, too. We also have a master slider if you want to adjust all the elements at one.
Now let’s suppose you want hi hat instead of ride. That’s easy. Just turn off the hi hat button and click the ride button. Or maybe you’d like toms to get involved in the rhythm. Just select it, the move the Complexity Slider until it’s playing what you want.
We even include cowbell and tambourine parts with each groove. And like with everything else, you can go from ultra simple to ultra busy. There are literally thousands of combinations for *each* starter beat you choose.
Want a crash cymbal on the downbeat? Turn on the crash button and move the Complexity Slider to the left (for the most basic crash pattern.) Or if you want your drummer to bang those crashes, turn up the slider until it’s just right.
The theory behind our Groove Generator is that we wanted it to feel as close to working with a real drummer as possible. For instance, if a drummer was with you right now, you might say, “Give me a surfer beat for this song.” He’ll play a surfer beat, then you might say, “No, that’s too busy. Can you make it simpler?” Or you might say, “That sounds cool, but I was hoping for the rhythm part to be on toms, instead of hi hat.”
That’s exactly how our Groove Generator works. It’s interactive, and you’re actually *creating* music, instead of “assembling” a track by searching through countless MIDI loops. I guarantee (yes, literally a guarantee, since we have a 30-day full refund policy) that you will find the Groove Generator to be not only useful, but a ton of fun as well. And isn’t that how making music should be?
Prefer working in midi tracks? Use our Groove Generator as a starting point. Drag and drop any of our midi grooves into your host DAW tracks then edit to your heart’s content. Any way you like to work, we can get your track up and moving.
BUT WHAT ABOUT FILLS?
Of course, Kimosabe. We put fills on keyswitches, so you can play them anywhere in the beat, and they will automaticall play in sync and adjust in length so they make musical sense. I guarantee you’re going to find yourself playing around with a beat and adding fills, just because it’s so fun.
All drums are assignable to separate outputs, we have velocity scaling options, and you can even map your keyboard however you like. The drums, fills and keyswitches (for scrolling through drums or beats, or even starting and stopping the Groove Generator) can all be assigned to whatever key you like.
KONTAKT PLAYER INCLUDED!
RealiDrums requires the free Kontakt Player, or full version of Kontakt 5.6.8 or higher.
PC/Mac compatible. Runs in all sequencers.

BUT MIKE, HOW CAN I BE SURE IT’S AS AMAZING AS YOU SAY?
Yeah, I’ve been there myself, where I bought something based on a bunch of hype, then was disappointed when I actually got it. We don’t want that here at Realitone, so with RealiDrums, or any of our products, we have a 30-day full refund policy. You don’t even need a “good” reason. Maybe you don’t like the artwork. If you’re unhappy, send me an email and I’ll give you your money back. We want zero unhappy customers.
We do this not because we expect unhappy customers, but because we want to encourage people to try our products. Sort of like a car dealer wanting you to take a test drive. (Although car dealers dress better than I do.) If you’re on the fence, even if you’re doubtful, take it for a spin. If you’re not excited by it when you play with it, get your money back. So there’s no risk.
