Sugar Bytes Drumcomputer plugin combines deep drum synthesis and creative sequencing paired with the famous SB craziness in it.
It never gets boring when Sugar Bytes releases a new plugin. Unlike many others, they also go a different way in the new Drumcomputer plugin, making the musicians all the drum synthesis parameters accessible, which often remain closed. So musicians become a drum synthesis expert.
Drumcomputer is not only a pure synthesis based drum machine but you can also import your own samples and sculpt them. The engine features 8 sound engines, different filters, effects, a big modulation system (envelopes, LFO, synth-engine modulators, sequencer-modulators…) as well as a 16 step sequencer and pattern generator. Not to be missed are various randomizers with which you can design almost infinitely sounds and patterns.
Drumcomputer features 8 individual sound engines with a wide range of different synthesis methods including “classical analog resonator”, wavetable, Resynth & more. Cool here, you can import own samples in the wavetable & re-synthesizer so you have endless oscillator timbres. Each sound has 3 synthesis layers and shares presets, so you can exchange sounds between engines. Multimode filter, compressor, distortion and 2 kinds of Send Reverbs provide a vast toolset to carve the perfect drums.
Further, it includes two envelopes/LFO hybrids with lots of waveforms powered by a flexible modulation matrix with sources and targets all over the instrument. The Kit Page provides the most important functions of the sound engine. Each of the eight kit channels provides a preset browser for the individual sound, controls for global pitch and decay, a modify knob and a profiled random function. Define a Mute group in order to make a trigger on one engine choke the sound on another engine and use Choke Groups for open/closed hi-hat choking, but also for interesting synth sounds.
The Finalizer is a well-balanced recipe of a transient shaper, compressor, maximizer, and saturation. Use it to bring out the Attacks of your drums and let the room breath. Additional drum sound randomizers with profiles and the MakeKit button will keep on surprising you with new drum sounds and kits.
Pattern Generator & Sequencer
Simple patterns turn into livid tracks with the AutoFill feature, which inserts fills and parameter changes at certain song positions. The revolutionary Remix control creates crazy fills and covers lots of grooves and fun. The Pattern, Mute & Mapping section offers you extensive live-performance-oriented control over DrumComputer.
Enjoy total freedom when it comes to assigning drum sounds to your keyboard and use Key zones for rolls, pitch, and modulations. 8 keys are reserved for the mute function, perfect for live-re-arranging of your beats. 16 pattern keys plus pattern chains allow for easy pattern editing and sequencing.
The 16-step/16-pattern sequencer is packed with features. While it provides Tempo, Direction and Step Length per track, its also capable of generating complete, complex patterns with more than just triggers, you have to try it to believe it.
Modulation sequencers for probability, rolls, step delay and also pitch- decay- and mod sequencers are included. And the best part: A complete MIDI drag and drop feature generates a MIDI file that contains everything from triggers, modulation sequences to auto-fills and their related CCs.
