Slam Tracks GM products will work with any drum Virtual Instrument (VI) or sound module that accepts and supports General MIDI file use. All of our products are MIDI files, which, by their very nature, only tell the VI or sampler/module what to play (the MIDI files indicate the note number, voice, velocity and other MIDI data. In of themselves, MIDI does NOT create the sound. What you hear is the sampled sounds of your VI or sampler/sound module.
Virtual Instruments and/or sound modules each have their own documentation and support to ensure you get the best sound possible using Slam Tracks MIDI drum grooves.
