9 Soundware Drum Key Ultrabeat Presets
9 Soundware releases Drum Key Version 2 Ultrabeat Presets.
Drum Key by 9 Soundware is a collection of presets for the Ultrabeat drum synthesizer within Apple Logic Pro. Drawing on the synthesis component of Ultrabeat (incorporating no audio samples), the sound set is designed to repurpose the plug-in as a generator of abstract timbres, while remaining true to its rhythmic spirit. The patches exploit elements such as noise LFOs and velocity modulation to evoke human gestures and randomness, according to 9 Soundware. This release is version 2 of an existing product. All registered owners of the previous version will receive free updates.
Each of the 20 patches of Drum Key are based on a single timbre (“Timbre 0”) which harnesses the technical resources of Ultrabeat without the bias of drum kit paradigms. All 20 patches contain 25 component patches designed to mirror identical derivational variation concepts and key maps. Echoing the General MIDI Percussion Key Map, variations of Timbre 0 are shaped and arranged accordingly between C1 and C#2 (drum voices 1-16) to its aural or conceptual attributes, allowing reorientation of drum kit sequences. Drum voices 17 (E2) and higher house transpositions of Timbre 0 to sonic expressions of their respective names. In summary, the Ultrabeat architecture, consisting of 25 modules per plug-in instance, allows for 500 timbres in the 20 patches which form the sound set.
The 2 MB download includes 20 .pst files.
