XRB enhances iDrum
Glaresoft today released , its collection of 256 new kits and 2,057 new beats, designed for use with iDrum, its software drum machine. XRB includes over 2,000 drum and effect samples in industry-standard AIFF format, and each type of drum is neatly organized into a set of easy-to-navigate directories. Included sounds and beats cover a large range of popular styles -- from breakbeat to house to hip-hop -- along with cutting edge genres like glitch and retro-electro. Use of the AIFF sound format extends XRB's usefulness to users of third-party drum machines and samplers. XRB is available for $70, as is iDrum. iDrum requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
