Start up company, TekkZoo Instruments, tells us that their VST kick drum synthesiser has entered the last stage of production (we assume that they are ironing out the Bugs). They say that the Bunny Kicker will be available in Q. 2 of 2018 for Steinbergs free HALion Sonic SE 3 platform. A spokesperson told us, "Bunny Kicker is only the beginning for TekkZoo Instruments. The Idea is to populate the Zoo with more and more sound creatures. With Steinbergs HALion environment for instrument development we found the perfect platform. Stay tuned for what else we will catch in the wild."
Here's more details in the company's own words...
The goal of the TekkZoo Instruments Bunny Kicker is streamlining the process of individual kick drum creation or enhancement of existing samples.
Three layers allow for plenty of possibilities to create sounds with impact and character.
The sub is covered by a classical kick synth inspired by legendary drum machines such as the 808, but with its own character.
Your own sounds can be imported into a sample layer featuring a tilt filter. Of course you will also find a selection of included impacts from a field recording session to get you started.
Finally a noise layer allows you to sprinkle top end in your kick or use atonal impacts for transient infusion.
The effects section allows you to mangle the tune with destruction or widen it with space. They are controlled with a single knob each and can be activated individually for any layer.
Since kicks can become larger then life the tighten knob will help you position your kick in the mix through a combination of enhancements.
