Features
  • Beat creation software combining elements from analog drum machines, sample based beat boxes and physical modeling
  • Audio engine contains multiple synthesis modes - sample engine, multiple physical models, and a modular, virtual analog drum synthesizer
  • TAE (True Analog Emulation) synthesis for creating the sounds of classic analog synthesizers
  • The modular synthesizer can be used to create a vast array of sounds including, kick drums, snares, hats, cymbals, as well as more traditional synthesizer sounds using:

    • Up to two Karplus Strong based filters
    • Stereo filter
    • Spring Mass physical modeling engine

  • The modular synthesizer contains six assignable macros knobs which allow for controlling multiple aspects of the sound in real time - for each macro four parameters can be assigned from any of the modules within a patch, as well as determining the minimum and maximum values the parameter can take
  • Song mode allows for organizing patterns into up to sixteen color-coded mini songs, each up to eight patterns long Allows for simple visualizing of the various sections of a song (intro chorus, verse, breakdown) Dedicated buttons can trigger mini songs in any order for creating on-the-fly remixes
  • Interface has been organized to make it as user friendly as possible by placing all the major features at the user's fingertips
  • Tabbed layout drastically reduces scrolling and provides the user with faster access to all features
  • Supports REX files - import a REX file and split the slices across the sixteen pads, or use single pad playback for live looping possibilities
