KEYBOARD MAPPED FOR BUILDING UP YOUR BEATS FOR A WHOLE SONG.
Aside from the panels, we mapped the keyboard so you can play the whole sequencer or its elements separately in sync (or freely) to compose through the keyboard. You can play the individual sounds on top as well. Finally we added ready made loops for each kit if you further need inspiration. So start with sequencer, play on top and use ready loops if needed.
"Got my hands now on it for a short time and must really say this is so much fun to play with!" Richard S.
WHY WE DID IT?
We always wanted a more versatile and realistic sounding drum tool. One that could be used for any style, one that would result in much better dynamic behaviour when compared to typical velocity-volume systems and one with which creating unique timbres by combining (and cross mixing) different styles of kits is a breeze.
So we decided to create it!
After working on the second version for a year with feedback from our community, we think you will love making drums with this engine.
