DrumLab by Audionomy

Pascal Douillard, the renegade that left Fingerlab to bring us DM2, has released DrumLab. This new drum app combines synthesis with samples. This is my own preferred combination, since you can get the best of both worlds packed into a single drum hit.

With a powerful and easy to use graphic editor to create and manipulate sound, it is packed with 76 ready-made samples and synthesis Drum Kits. You can mix and match any sound from any drum kits to any track of your song. Play a song and load any drum kits (from factory kits or from any other songs) to listen to a completely new song every time. What’s in the box :

◊ 7 Sound Engines including a graphical Sampler
◊ 61 Drum Kits including 24 Classic kits

Each track can have its own length. Just gently tap and drag the blue handle at the right end of each track. Triplets, Duets, Quadriplets steps can also be added for more complex rhythms.

2 - THE DRUMS PAGE is a powerful graphic Audio Engine editor. Parameters are displayed as graph for visual feedback an d easy of use. Play, experiment and discover new sounds. Don’t forget to tap the little magnifying glass on the bar title of each graph, it will expand the graph to a bigger size for extra precision.

3 - THE PADS PAGE simply lets you play and record any beat that tickles your fingers, with automatic quantize so that you don’t miss a beat. With a Beat Repeat effect for extra fun.

4 - THE MIXER PAGE for quick and subtle sound mixing of your drum kits. Large and spacey so that you can get the big picture. Pan and Solo included.

5 - THE FX SECTION offer a powerful Quad Pads Effect processors. You can stack up to 4 effects at the same time and pick amongst a list of 20 available stereo effects. All effects can be either auxiliary or master effects. All effects are automatable.

FAC Drumkit by Fred Anton Corvest

Fred Anton Corvest has made FAC Drumkit available for pre-order on iOS. The wildly elaborate new drum synth is on sale for $14 ahead of its release on Friday. The way this app lets you fine tune the envelopes is quite impressive. The total freedom over the shape and character of each part is almost daunting. I think I'm scared.

FAC Drumkit

** Special Intro Price **

• iOS AuV3 - Multi Output (If Supported By HOST) - Universal (iPad/iPhone)

• 16 Voices Drum Synthesizer and Stereo Sample Player
• 2 oscillators (16 Waveforms) per voice with filters and phase modulation
• 1 sample player per voice with sample position, filters, phase and stereo control
• Advanced Pitch and Amp envelopes with multi control points and delay
• Envelopes templates, modifiers and copy/paste
• Mixer view
• Preview button to monitor the ongoing designed sound
• Includes classic drum machines presets for inspiration

Everyone agrees that the drums are a very important key element of almost every genre out there, they are the fondation of a song. We are all fan of acoustic drums and drum machines, they each have different characters and strengths. FAC Drumkit combines both world, samples and synthesis, in order to provide new exciting and unique sounds. As a rule of thumb, the synthesizer section brings the body of the sound, and the sampler the unique character. Both parts are layered together and contain essential parameters to ensure they won't clash and will sit well together.

On top of the samples and synthesizer section, FAC Drumkit brings unique Amp and Pitch envelopes with precise control points to modify the curve in a gentle or extreme way. The envelopes play a very important part in the signal path because, thanks to their flexibility, they allow designing very special transition. Indeed, the envelope of a Clap is probably the best one to illustrate the benefit of such envelopes created by points. The burst kind of sound is very hard to replicate with classic ADSR, it's not the case in FAC Drumkit. Needless to say, thanks to the control points the pitch transitions are also more interesting and precise. The value of each control point can also be altered manually, to set the root note of a kick for example.

FAC Drumkit is for everyone, as sound designer you will be able to synthesize your own drums in a fun and creative way. On the other hand, if you are looking for instant results, use the provided presets or load your favourite sample pack in the sample section of the 16 voices.

Doug Woods did a live stream to show off the upcoming app. Embedded here is a video from Fred himself.
