Never overproduced and always authentic, the Indie Rock Drums series – which also includes Volume 2, Volume 3, ReFill packs and is available as part of The Platinum Pack – contains organic, accurate captures of living, breathing drummers playing some of the best drum sets. Users can select from a variety of groove collections, each with its own range of fills, plus individually sampled drums and cymbals.

Equal parts instrument and game, Sound Shapes gives everyone the ability to make music. Players play through a unique campaign that fuses music and artwork into a classic 2D platformer. They can also create their own unique musical levels with all of the campaign content and share it with their world. Sound Shapes creates an ever-changing musical community for everyone to enjoy at home on their PS3 system or on the go with their PS Vita system. Sound Shapes also includes original music by Beck, deadmau5, I Am Robot and Proud and Jim Guthrie.
