DW Launches New Expansion Pack for DW Soundworks

Drum Workshop, Inc. (DW) launches new expansion pack for its premium virtual studio instrument (VST) and drum sample library, DW Soundworks: True-Cast™ Expansion Pack, featuring the limited edition DW MFG True-Cast 5 x14” Snare Drum.

Only one hundred of the DW MFG True-Cast 5 x14” Snare Drums were made in 2023. These sand-cast, seamless pure bronze drums, developed in conjunction with renowned drum educator and session player, Dave Elitch, offer a unique, potent voice which is dynamic and distinct.

The powerful DW Soundworks™ software, is a virtual instrument that equips drummers, multi-instrumentalists, and producers with an expanding sonic palette of DW, Gretsch and Slingerland drum sounds, including ones not widely available, like the DW MFG True-Cast 5 x14” Snare Drum.

The DW MFG True-Cast 5 x14” Snare Drum Expansion Pack captures the authentic tonality of the rare DW True-Cast 5 x14”snare drum with sounds sampled at 24-bit, 88.2 kHz in the DW factory. This realistic audio experience faithfully provides all the full attack, low-end punch and dark, earthy tonality of the original drum, making it widely available to all. DW Soundworks’ deep range of processing controls and effects means users can reproduce the DW MFG True-Cast 5 x14” Snare Drum sound specific to a particular microphone, room, ambience or dynamic.

The new expansion pack is ideal for use with the DW’s wireless acoustic-electronic convertible DWe drum kit or as a VST plugin. It is PC and Mac (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX) compatible.
