How to: Installing Thomas Pridgen Drums

The quality and care put into the sampling of each individual element, plus the more "finished" sound they provide right out of the gate, soars far above anything I've used in the past.

Royce Whittaker

Musician/Musical Director (Megan Thee Stallion, The Midnight, Jupiter Winter)

I've never been more floored by a drum library right out of the gate than I was when I hit a snare sample in MixWave drums.

Brandon Paddock

Producer (The Used, Panic at The Disco, Elle King, Avril Lavigne, Betty Who, Daughtry, The Night Game)

MixWave drums are not only great for composing demos, but are more than capable of sounding amazing on a finished product. I've never really been satisfied with any virtual instrument for programming drums until now. Game changer for sure!

Vocalist/Producer (Periphery)
