Sample Logic and Soundiron have introduced what they describe as the world’s most modern drum machine: Modern Animated Percussion. This is what they have to say about it…
Modern Animated Percussion redefines everything you know about percussion and rhythms. Built for the full version of Kontakt, MAP contains over 6,000 sounds and instrument presets. The intuitive design and programming of every preset delivers infinite options for sound sculpting. Packed with creative presets, the effortless user interface makes it easy to conjure rhythmic timbres and tones.
BLURRING THE LINES
MAP gives you the production quality of a polished audio loop alongside the dynamic flexibility of a drum machine. Change any aspect of the sound with infinite sonic results. How is this possible? The secret is in the infrastructure; even though each preset might sound like a perfectly produced rhythmic audio loop, it is much more, as there are no loops in this product. In the driver’s seat is a supercharged MIDI based drum machine, triggering samples with the elasticity of an arpeggiator.
FROM SAMPLE TO RHYTHM
Equipped with over 4,000 unique percussive audio samples and nearly 2,000 presets, MAP has been meticulously programmed around Sample Logic’s proprietary 4-core engine. Each instrument preset contains 4 sound cores, each powered by an independent drum machine running in tandem to trigger 4 different sounds at once. This generates perfectly produced and polished loop-like results, but with far more flexibility than simple sampled audio loops.
CRAFTING THE SOUND
Sample Logic and Soundiron have teamed up to deliver a vast collection of percussive hit samples. From world percussion to EDM kits, the creative team truly set out to cover the entire map of percussive sounds. We scoured the globe to sample everything from massive impacts & cinematic transitions to traditionally sampled toms & hand percussion… and everything in between. MAP truly delivers the most diverse collection of percussive sources assembled into one virtual instrument.
MAP is designed with infinite creativity in mind. The beauty behind this beast is the multitude of ways to use and perform with it. The instrument is laid out into several main sections: The dynamic Preset Browser, the Step Animator engine, the Dynamic FX engine, the Mixer, Master Effects… and of course our famous Randomize section. Whether a deadline mandates you to live only in the preset browser, or have time to build your own 4-core masterpiece, we’ve provided the map for you to go in any direction you wish.
