Algorhythms 02 is a collection of over 480 carefully programmed synth drums, collated into 20 electronic kits (with a further 3 bonus cinematic kits) for Kontakt, WAV, Battery 3/4 and Geist formats.
The sounds have been designed using some of my favourite softsynths (including Zebra, Diva, Massive, Bazille and FM8) and then processed with my favourite software plug-ins from the likes of UAD, Kush Audio, FabFilter, Native Instruments and Sonnox.
Designed with a dark, crunchy and punchy vibe in mind, Algorhythms 02 features deep kicks, driving snares, dirty claps, crisp hats and eclectic noises; as well as analogue-modelled ethnic drum sounds, cinematic hits and synth impacts in the bonus kits.
This drum collection can produce beats ranging from pounding, epic trailer slams, to techy, intricate underscore beats; from punchy, house grooves to subtle, minimalist techno rhythms. Great for the dynamic but subtle, modern, scoring beats of the likes of Olafur Arnalds, James Newton Howard and Craig Armstrong.
The Kontakt version provides a specially designed GUI that allows you to control the tone and shape of each sample, via tuning, amp envelope, transient, filter and EQ controls; as well as being able to send delay and reverb effects. There are also lof-i, distortion compression, transent, filter and EQ controls across the whole drum kit.
You will need the full version of Kontakt 5.5 to use the Kontakt kits. WAVs are 24bit 48k format.
A big thanks goes out to Mario Kruselj/Evil Dragon for the Kontakt programming and guidance, and to Ryo Ishido for the GUI design.
