New in MPC Firmware Update 2.9
High-powered DrumSynth Instrument Plugin delivers advanced synthesiser drum sound design to MPC and FORCE in free update.
Calling all producers, live performers and DAWless jammers, this is the update you have been waiting for! Akai Professional has just announced the add-on of DrumSynth to their MPC and FORCE lines of music production tools with MPC 2.9 and FORCE 3.0.6 firmware updates. DrumSynth joins the unparalleled power of the existing virtual instruments already included in the MPC - TUBESYNTH, BASSLINE and ELECTRIC
Powerfully Creative Drum Synthesis
At the heart of DrumSynth is a multi-synth sound generation architecture. Powered by FM synthesis, physical & analogue modelling, and sample-based algorithms, DrumSynth propels the FORCE and MPC user into unrivalled dimensions of standalone sound design. This revolutionary plugin features 8 individual instances (Kick, Snare, Clap, Toms, Percussion, Hi-Hat, Crash and Ride), each with its own unique sound generator combination to deliver dynamic drum and percussion sounds.
With DrumSynth, users can quickly tweak any of the 8 engines for an unprecedented degree of sonic manipulation. Fine tune synthesised drum sounds with a selection of effects and processors, including Transient Shaping, Tuning, EQ, Compression, Reverb and Delay. Add further character with multiple processing textures within each sound engine. Users can even access all 8 engines in multi-mode where sounds can be mixed and balanced against each other and saved as a custom user preset. This truly is next-generation drum synthesis at its finest.
Users will quickly grasp the DrumSynth interface, and on the standalone hardware devices, find the touch screen enables precise editing and lightning-fast manipulation of countless parameters. Fuse this with incredible visual feedback and DrumSynth maximises users’ productivity with a graphic experience to keep creative responses flowing in the midst of the most inspired moments.
