Award-winning sampled Drum Instrument

Handy Drums Studio Standard is an award-winning sampled drum virtual instrument for music production. Meticulously sampled Yamaha Maple Custom drums 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 be suitable for most contemporary music styles (great all-rounder).

The drums come with up to 10 dynamic levels and 13 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. Maple shell produces one of the most versatile sounds. An absolute standard, a perfect "all around" studio drum kit for use in any music genre. The options are endless, imagination being the only limit. These drums sound more “close up” due to their crispy presence and short sustain.

The snare is snappy and, at the same time deep with a real sizzly snare wire character coming through. The kick is weighty, short, and punches through the speakers. The shorter depth toms have a clear note but get out of the way even faster and really sing out on the louder hits.

Weitere Details in englischer Sprache:


  • 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 Standard contains up to 10 dynamic levels per instrument.

  • Round Robin - Up to 13 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 Standard 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 Standard 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.
