Air Music Technology and Plugivery Distribution have announced the availability of Drum Synth 500, a virtual instrument of electronic drum sounds for use with any DAW or as a Standalone application for live performance. Here's the details that they have supplied...
Building upon Air Music Technology’s heritage of creating Strike considered “The reference Drum Instrument” for Avid Protools—Air has teamed up with music legends Akai Professional and Alesis Drums to carry on this legacy of excellence.
In the style of the popular 500 series synth modules comes an all new software drum synthesizer that delivers full control of all electronic drum sounds in an easy-to-use, comprehensive interface. Drumsynth 500 from AIR Music Technology has everything needed to create an endless variety of custom electronic drum sounds for all styles of music.
Drumsynth 500’s exclusive library has been produced by the sound design veterans behind the highly-acclaimed Air Music Tech Strike, Air Structure, Sonivox Big Bang, Akai Professional’s MPC and Alesis e-Drums. The goal was to provide an incredible mixture of vintage and all-new effects that pay homage to classic sounds while also pushing into new territory.
Using a MIDI keyboard, pad controller, electronic drumkit, or the user’s favorite Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software, Drumsynth 500 brings modern electronic drum sounds into musical productions in the studio or live playing.
To get started, Drumsynth 500 offers over 500 drum sounds, 500 drum samples, 50 drum kits and 500 MIDI drum loops which can be loaded into any DAW and used to kick-start any song or production.
It's simple to start shaping electronic drum sounds. Users can dig in deep with individual parameter control for all instruments or use the randomizer, which makes a drum sounds with just one press of a button. Advanced users will find this to be a tweaker’s paradise to produce their own one-of-a-kind sound.
Drumsynth 500 is built on powerful all-new engine for live performance or studio use. For live performance, users can simply fire up their PC or Mac desktop app and perform without a DAW for distraction-free performance. For studio use, all popular plugin formats are supported.
Drumsynth 500 is packaged into a beautiful user interface with no hidden panels, for quick, fun creation of electronic drum sounds.
