Blast beats brings back the sound of the DOS era with this 10 voice groovebox powered by the OPL3 (YMF262) FM chip from the 8 bit game era.
Alex from Cre8audio and Twisted Electrons showed us how Blast Beats gives total control over this chip, so we can make the 6 drum tracks and 4 synth tracks sound warm and beautiful, or utterly dirty, all with that 8 bit vibe. and each of the 56 faders can be automated per step, with all patterns and kits saved to the SD card.
