AudioSpillage Premiers Elecktroid Drum Machine
AudioSpillage has released Elecktroid, a drum machine AU plug-in for Mac combining both drum synthesis and sample playback facilities.
Elecktroid blends synthesis and sample playback facilities in a simple integrated package. Combine the depth and power of drum synthesis alongside your existing sample collections and sync both to a brand new rhythm oriented step sequencer. Elecktroid contains four drum synthesis models: BassDrum, WoodDrum, HiHat and Snare. The drum synths are 100% algorithmic and utilize high quality DSP code for a claimed “deep, powerful and punchy sound.”
Elecktroid also features a low CPU sample playback engine. Quickly load your existing sample collection into Elecktroid via the drag and drop interface. Elecktroid offers velocity cross-fading facilities between 2 samples per pad and accepts WAV, AIFF and CAF format files.
The new rhythm-oriented step-sequencer ties the package together offering custom track lengths and step trigger probability controls on every track. Elecktroid’s sequencer is a resolution-independent design so patterns play at the correct tempo regardless of step length (e.g. 16th, 32nd). The sequencer also features graphic velocity and parameter control graph editing.
