Native Instruments has released Drum Lab, an instrument that combines “advanced drum layering techniques with an intuitive workflow designed for fast results.”

Drum Lab combines the organic, expressive sound of acoustic drums with the weight and punch of electronic samples, according to the folks at Native Instruments. An included groove library provides over 900 patterns for fast groove production.

Drum Lab is available now from the NI Online Shop for US$99. For more info go to .
