TheDrumSource exists because Peter Heerdt told Ola Wistedt about how he missed the feeling to program drums like he does on the hardware drum machines such as Roland TR-808. He had found what he wanted Propellerheads ReDrum drum machine but found it irritating to have two hosts in parallel running, because ReDrum isn’t a VST.

The guys behind TheDrumSource are Ola Wistedt and Mats Lindfors. Ola writes the code in C++. Mats gives TheDrumSource the beautiful look.
