Unlike traditional sample-based virtual instruments, MODO DRUM utilizes IK’s award-winning modal synthesis technology and an ultra-optimized sound engine to bring your drums to life.
Each drum’s acoustic behavior is determined by its physical parameters: dimensions, materials, skin, and more, as well by modeling the play style, the interaction of the drum head with the body, the sympathetic vibration of the drums with each other and the acoustic interaction with the room.
In short, MODO DRUM is creating sound in real time based on the ever-changing interactions between the player, drums, and room, mimicking the vibe of a real, live drummer. It’s never been easier to bring life to your drum tracks - and by extension your music overall.
Enter the show room and choose one of 10 drum kits to use as your starting point. From Black Oyster, to Extreme, Grungy, Plexi, and more, each kit has been chosen to represent a particular style, genre or time period, and to give you the widest range of possible timbres and tones.
MODO DRUM’s ROOM section lets you place your drums in an array of different environments, from a dry drum booth to IK’s own in-house recording studio, to clubs, cathedrals and more! MODO DRUM uses convolution to ensure each element of your kit interacts naturally with the space and with each other. Let it ring or add gates and compression on the room tone for even more creative drum sounds.
The MIXER built into MODO DRUM gives you total control over the recorded sound. Adjust levels and panning per element of your kit – mute or solo your elements and flip phase. Elements can be grouped in buses and each element has two sends to process multiple elements with the same FX for a more cohesive feel.
Speaking of FX, MODO DRUM includes a massive suite of 19 studio processors and effects derived from T-RackS and AmpliTube, to sculpt the final flavor of the kit. Tracks, buses, FX returns, and even the master output each host an 8-band parametric EQ plus four additional FX slots for endless sound shaping possibilities.
Once you’ve dialed in your dream kit, perfected your performance, and mastered your drum mix, it’s time to start making music. Browse through MODO DRUM’s 1400+ MIDI patterns to help kick start your creativity.
