D16 Group has announced that Nithonat has been released for Windows and Mac OS X in VST and AU plug-in formats and is now available for purchase for €79.

Demo versions are available. The final release version includes an updated GUI and a revised feature list since the original announcement (see below).

Nithonat is a described as a synthesized drum machine based on the classic Roland TR-606. The sound of this machine has been used by many artists over the years in the production of Electro, Hip-Hop, R’n’B, etc, the company said;

Nithonat is designed to emulate the original 606, however, since Nithonat is software based, D16 were able to enhance the original with extra functionality.

Control over the sound
On the original 606, the only editable sound parameter was volume. D16 has added to the original and as a result, Nithonat is equipped with extra controls which allow each sound to be shaped in ways which were not possible in the original machine, according to D16.


Nithonat is said to have characteristic hi-hat and cymbal sounds which are due to the emulated structure of the circuits in the original. The bass drum is described as having “unparalleled attack character and strong punch.” The snare sounds sandy.


Nithonat has a built-in internal sequencer. The tracks can be edited and modified with many useful functions. The clear GUI means that sequencer is easy to use.

 

In addition to having many internal sequencer modes, Nithonat can also be used as a sound module. All sounds and functions within Nithonat can be controlled from a host sequencer.


Features:

  • Fully synthesized drum sounds.
  • Additional parameters to get yet more control over the sound.
  • Many ways of controlling the device:
