Drum Designer is a new virtual instrument from UVI that allows you to craft your own drum sounds using an advanced drum synthesis and sample-based engine!
UVI is back from the summer holidays and has presented today Drum Designer, a new virtual instrument for the UVI engine. As the name suggest is Drum Designer a sound design tool for drum sounds that allows you to craft your favourite drum timbre using an advanced engine. It’s based on a combination of synthesis and samples.
It features 4 individual designer engines for each sound (kick, snare, clap, cymbal). Each of them can me manipulated in detail and offers you a lot of options. All this is powered by a sequencer that comes with in total 8 engines with up to 8 bars. Sequences can be exported with click-drag directly in MIDI form to your desktop or DAW. Important know here is that it’s only compatible with the UVI Free Workstation and Falcon, it’s not a solo plugin!
Drum Designer combines the best of synthesis and sample-based drum techniques, breaking down drum hits to the component level and allowing users to rapidly create, edit and combine sounds with the flexibility of a synthesizer and the polish and impact of high-quality sample libraries. Created with a focus on today’s detail-oriented sound design and production methods, Drum Designer presents 4 dedicated engines outfitted with a combination of component drum samples and customized synthesis layers utilizing 3d wavetables. Each engine presents a deep and flexible toolset to help producers create powerful and iconic drum sounds, quickly explore variations, and mix them into existing tracks of any style.
Users can make broad-stroke changes to preset sounds with front page macros or take complete control over individual hit components with detailed editors and a versatile effects section. Each voice archetype (kick, snare, clap and cymbal) allows surgical sound shaping through component-specific editors including control over time, gain, pan, pitch, key-tracking, HP and LP filters, sample start time, phase, AHD amp envelopes, stereo width and more. Drum sounds can be further tweaked and refined through an effect section including transient designer, soft clipper, stereo width, EQ and convolution reverb.
Drum Designer can be instanced as single instruments or as an 8-part kit (including 1x Kick, 2x Snare, 1x Clap and 4x Cymbal engines), controllable by your host DAW or from the internal sequencer.
Drum Designer offers native 64-bit standalone operation by way of Falcon or the free UVI Workstation, providing comprehensive support for all modern DAWs and simultaneous authorization on up to 3 computers or iLok keys.
Drum Designer is available now at the introduction price of 99€/$ through October 1st, 2018 (regular 149 USD/EUR).
