Soundironís Antidrum Machine is the ultimate compendium of alternative, experimental percussion. It contains a vast catalogue of found sounds, field recordings, prepared objects, unique surfaces, and noisy contraptions. It's an exhaustive compilation of things-that-aren't-but-could-be percussion, a vibrant palette of musical paint containing everything from booming bass to tight clicks, clacks, zips, zings, ticks, and tocks. Antidrum Machine includes all of the content from our Antidrum series of libraries (Antidrum 1, 2, and 3) all well as Cathedral of Junk, Luftballoon, Luminabells, PVC Beatbox Ensemble, and Snow Drums. We also recorded another Antidrum volume's worth of brand new content.
Included in this library are different preset types that allow users to interact with the content in different ways. The Dual Layer preset type allows every articulation to be played tuned spread across the key range exposing the sonic qualities of all the sounds. There are two fully configurable layers in this preset type, each with sound selection, LFO, filter and sound shaping controls: volume, attack, offset, release, bass, treble, pitch and panning.
The Single Effects preset type gives users access to all the special single-shot effects that didnít fit into any velocity or round-robin based articulation. Each Single Effects preset has the same sound controls as each layer in the Dual Layer presets. The Ensemble preset types spread all the articulations across the available key range. LFO, filter, and sound shaping controls are available, as well as mapping customization. Users can remap any articulation to any key, and we include a Random button to really let users explore how a midi beat changes when randomly selected percussive sounds are assigned to the keys.
Every preset type includes our integrated ARP arpeggiator system, featuring a suite of options like rhythm, direction, swing and randomization. The easy Glide feature is also included, instantly turning sustaining content into a monophonic legato/portamento instrument with adjustable pitch bend speed control, and adds an adjustable pitch bend to percussive content.
All LFOs are configurable with user selectable shape and target, as well as free or tempo-synced speed, depth and attack. Every Filter is powerful, letting users select from 12 different filter types and modulation options such as sustain pedal and step sequencer.
Finally, donít forget to fire up the FX rack panel and load your patch up with your choice of dozens of DSP effects with modular signal routing ,including convolution reverb with over 100 of our custom real-world and special FX spaces to perfect your sound.
This library includes all of the source wav content from Antidrum 1, Antidrum 2, Antidrum 3, Cathedral of Junk, Luftballoon, Luminabells, PVC Beatbox Ensemble, and Snow Drums, as well as the exclusive new Antidrum 4, a huge selection of thousands of brand new samples from children's toys that are only available here in Antidrum Machine. It's the perfect atmospheric texture farm for film and game composers and sound designers, and an extraordinarily powerful synthesis engine for electronic music producers and synth junkies.
