Heavyocity has announced DM-307 - Modern Groove Designer, a new Kontakt format sample library. Release is February 2014 with pricing TBA.
DM-307 contains over 3,600 unique sounds and loops housed in 1400+ presets of drums, percussion, sound design elements, and loops. The 1200+ beat-sliced loops are organized by style and can be mixed and matched seamlessly to create complex layered beats and percussion beds.
In addition to the kits and loops, DM-307 showcases 250+ signature multis, allowing users to tweak beats created by Heavyocity and some of today's top DJ/producers: Kaiserdisco, Martin Eyerer, Mendo, Pirupa and Uner; and notable cinematic composers: Joe Trapanese, Jason Graves and Kevin Riepl.
This new virtual instrument introduces innovative ways to quickly and easily create production-ready grooves and beats in a variety of contemporary musical styles; including electronic, hip hop, industrial, ethnic and cinematic.
DM-307 was developed through experimental recording, sound design, and synthesis techniques, resulting in a highly-stylized collection of modular synth drums, live percussion, and processed classic analog drum machines.
DM-307's extensive content is complemented by an intuitive user interface featuring the all-new Grid sequencer, advanced Trigger FX and signature Punish knob. With DM-307's Loop Mutator technology users can sequence, re-compose and manipulate loops in new and exciting ways.
Tempo sync is automatic, and exporting a loop's MIDI data to your sequencer is simply drag-and-drop. Tweak your grooves quickly with the integrated keyswitches for effects and stutters, and create instant impacts with the unique 'Analog Hits'. Then, dial up the 'Punish' knob to pile on the pressure.
