Puremagnetik describes Foomph as a deep drum synthesizer designed for detailed bass drum sculpting. They say that it can be used as a standalone drum voice but is also perfect for low frequency support and drum replacement on existing recordings.
A spokesperson told us, "The synthesis section is divided into two sound engines allowing you to sculpt its tonal balance from purely electronic to acoustic bass drums. Additionally, you can create hybrid drums that classic drum machines lack. For instance, you can create an 808-style sustain portion with an acoustic-style beater attack. Foomph has been specifically tailored to deliver only musical results. With a dedicated set of macro controls, all parameter dependencies have been programmed under the hood. That means, no matter how you tweak the controls, you will always get a musical drum sound."
