Versatile drumset for a wide range of music styles

Handy Drums STUDIO LEGEND is an award-winning sampled drum virtual instrument for music production. Meticulously sampled Yamaha Recording Custom (aka 9000) drums that are easy to use, affordable and sound great right out of the box. The self-contained plugin has a built-in sampler (no 3rd party samplers needed). Included drums are "album ready", pre-mixed to suit a number of genres from Pop, Rock to Country, Blues, and even Jazz.

The drums come with up to 12 dynamic levels and 10 round robins (samples per dynamic level). Equipped with a clean, simple, intuitive GUI that offers essential functionalities such as volume control of individual components, drum mapping, routing, audition buttons, MIDI and driver settings, and a CC4 curve editor for e-drummers. The legendary Recording Custom 9000 birch drums became the most recorded drums in history. With their controlled yet punchy sound they are perfect for any studio recording.

This versatile drumset can be used in a wide range of music styles from Pop, Rock to Country, Blues, and even Jazz. It is a very punchy, warm, and full-bodied kit with a short sustain, so it gets out of the way quickly. It has a medium ambiance, halfway between Handy Drums Studio Standard and Rock drum sets.


  • Practical, Intuitive, Easy-To-Use Interface - Handy Drums do not require a complicated manual to use. An elaborate design of over 50 samplers and smart algorithms power your seamless experience behind the simple user interface. Access all of the essential functions intuitively.

  • Multiple Dynamic Levels - Each drum and cymbal was sampled at multiple dynamic levels to ensure the instrument’s fullest dynamic range is coming through when played back. Handy Drums Studio Legend contains up to 12 dynamic levels per instrument.

  • Round Robin - Up to 12 samples per dynamic level - Every drum stroke played by a real drummer is ever so slightly different from the previous one, no matter how good the drummer is. This is part of what gives it that “human” feel and is why our ears can instantly hear the difference between a roll played by a real drummer and the same sample being triggered over again. To make the Studio Legend sound more like a real drummer, each drum and cymbal has been sampled numerous times at every dynamic level. No sample is repeated sequentially during playback, but a different one is triggered.

  • 24bit Sample Depth - All Handy Drums were sampled as 24bit wav files for the best resolution and sound quality.

  • Immaculately-Sampled Acoustic Drums - To achieve larger-than-life yet completely natural-sounding drums, every step of the sampling process is critical. Starting with the drum tuning, drums were carefully treated before even a single note was played. They are captured using the highest-quality mics, preamps, and converters to preserve every minute detail.

  • Unparalleled Realism From Virtual Drums - Handy Drums Studio Legend sounds like an actual drum kit being played right in front of you in a room instead of a bunch of individual components sounding in their own isolated spaces. They achieved realism by recording the full width of acoustic drums and their natural room ambiance, then meticulously editing and mixing them in post-production.
