15 vintage drum machines - multi-channel studio recordings- 14GB Library -Kontakt Player + NKS
What if you record drum machines in a pro-studio?
We wanted to combine classic drum machines ( 15, to be exact ) with the the organic ambience and warmth of studio recorded drums. So, we took a club PA to two different studios, turned it up really loud, and recorded the results: through high-end mics, vintage consoles, valve pre-amps, bass-amps and even acoustic drum shells.
Classic drum sounds as you've never heard them before.
Linn Drum LM2 | TR-808 | CR-78 | Bentley Rhythm Ace | Yamaha MR10 | Simmons SDS800 | 606 | TR-909 | Drumulator | Korg 55b | Drumtraks | DR110 | CR-8000 | DR55 | Oberheim DMX
Each drum was recorded through 11 different channels in the studio - blend to create any drum sound you desire.

87,000 samples in total
Beat Tools: Beat Shifter
6 tracks with generative 'beat shifting' functions - drag and drop patterns to DAW - save and load patterns from disc
A 6 track step-sequencer with a difference - each track can be programmed to shift its notes as the beat plays, creating new beats as the patterns evolves. Sounds can be set to move a lot, stay completely still, or move incrementally while never losing their musical timing.
Beat Tools: Poly Beats
6 poly rhythmic tracks - drag and drop pattersn to DAW
Poly Beats is a new sequencer from Soniccouture. Each track divides the bar into arbitrary subdivisions, or polyrhythms. Since each track can be set completely different from each other, polyrhythms can quickly sound very strange and unnatural. Definitely the beat programmer for the left-field composer.
The Options Panel
Polyphony Limit system - User key mapping setup
The Options panel allows you to mamage the polyphony of Electro-Acoustic: since each drum has 11 channels, polyphony counts can quickly get out of hand. We have a custom solution: you can set a limit to how many hits each drum can play, or switch it off for a totally purist experience. The options panel also allows completley custom key mappings so you can fit Electro-Acoustic to any existing MIDI tracks you have easily.
The Drum Kit Panel
Select drums by kit piece - 11 studio channels per drum - pitch - envelope - filter controls
The sound-design heart of Electro-Acoustic, this screen has everything you need to build incredible sounding kits. Scroll through different drum machines for each kit piece, shape it using the 11 studio channels, then get really creative with pitch and envelope controls. For advanced drum-geeks, you can edit these for each channel independently if you desire.
