Broken Drum Machine for Mac OS X

Monday March 10, 2008. 02:47 PM, by Nantho Virtual Instrument > NUSofting
Virtual Instrument : Broken Drum Machine for Mac OS X - macmusicNuSofting has announced the release of the Mac OS X version of Broken Drum Machine (BDM) in VST and AU plug-in formats.

Inspired by a combination of several old school beat boxes and the circuit-bending culture that revolves around cheap, and old, hardware musical instruments (such as the "toy" Casio and Yamaha keyboards of the 80s), Broken Drum Machine brings the lively, "ever changing",
circuit-bent drum machine sounds to your DAW.

BDM is a plugin instrument designed for the musicians who love chaos and usually find the unpredictable behaviour of an uncontrollable sound machine stimulating and inspiring. It offers four drum pads in the style of an old beat box- one each for Bass Drum, Snare, Hi-Hat and Stick. Each pad features the usual suspects for shaping the synthesized sound, including tone, decay, pitch, pan and gain.

On top of the standard controls comes the broken factor - each pad features its own sliders for chaos and chance. Chaos sets the amount of variations to the original sound, and chance is the probability algorithm for the chaos to occur. By varying and automating the chaos and chance sliders, you can achieve an infinite range of wild and unpredictable sounds, similar to creating glitches and bleeps by manipulating an analog circuit.

Main Features :

- Addictive ever changing sound.
- Blend of acoustic and electronic sound, PCM + VCO generation.
- Seven "Chaos" Modulations of various parameters.
- Controllable random crackles generation.
- 4 Mono + 1 Stereo out.
- MIDI Learn for each parameter.
- Customizable default PCM sound bank and skin using the Modpacks.

BDM is now available for Mac OS X (UB) in VST and AU formats for 35.90 / $51.90.
