The original Drumulator was a 12-bit sampled drum machine offering twelve kit pieces and real-time sequencing. It was a high-end machine for its day, and rivalled the Linn drum and other studio-grade drum machines of the early 80s. Rhythmic Robot's Kontakt version of the Drumulator includes all of the original kit pieces, plus three separate kits based on custom aftermarket EPROMs which we fitted to our Drumulator and sampled.
Drumulator Plus includes 8 levels of round robin for a genuinely authentic sound, plus performance controls including compression, bit crushing, saturation and "velocity retrofit" (allowing MIDI velocity to control kit piece level). The individual kit pieces can be panned and trimmed.
- 48 kit pieces in total.
- Original, Fairlight, Electro and Custom Kick kits.
- 24-bit samples of the original machine.
- Drum-specific effects suite, plus velocity control and pan / trim controls.
Drumulator Plus is available now. It costs £5.95 for the full Kontakt version, and there is also a version for Reason, EXS24 and .WAV file users which costs £4.95 (but doesn't include the Kontakt-specific effects and GUI). See the website for more details.
