Building back better from the bottom end
100s of Kicks and Floor Toms
15 drum articulations
15 algorithm engines
for FULL version of Kontakt 5.8 and above
EXCELLENT thump AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
KICKTOM is based around the simple concept of doing one thing really, really well.
Low end beats, percussive rumble, punch, thump and a bit of thwack. All quickly available at your fingertips with an easy to use but complex BPM synced sequencer engine and 11 algorithmic playback engines for every single note.
Use KICKTOM to start tracks with a chunky bottom end, or add it to existing pieces for rumbustious low frequencies and clatter.
From delicate to epic, subtle to stomping, wild to wonky. Build a BPM synced, chunky Funky Drummer or dirty glitter stomp in moments and play it live with a few keys.
building from the bottom
Each articulation has its own GUI, sequencer and algorithmic playback engine, with a suite of effects for individual sound sculpting.
83 Custom IMPULSE RESPONSES per articulation to create natural and impossible spaces. Hybrid IR's can transform a kick into a cowbell, high hat or tuned piano note. SUB IR's adds tuned sub-bass for extra low end rumble.
'Well, this is worryingly useful. Fortunately, you can do weird stuff as well! Great programming, and it really is very nice to be able to shape the sounds inside the instrument like this. ' a YOUTUBE comment too good not to share
