Description from the packaging.

The spotlight is on you- and MacDrums.

You don't have to be a musician. You don't even have to know how to read music. If you can point and click, you can compose and record drum and percussion tracks with all the beat, soul, snap, and sizzle of a pro.

Cymbals. Toms, hi-hats, and snares... with MacDrums, you command 35 different instruments. And because MacDrums uses digital samples of actual instruments, they sound incredibly real. Create and save your own tracks- Rock, Pop, Reggae, Jazz. Or created just for MacDrums by a professional percussionist.

MacDrums is so easy to use that you can start making music in less than 2 minutes- and stop only after the lights come on and the crowd goes home.

MacDrums. It's the most fun you can have without a pair of drumsticks.
