Sonic Charge µTonic (pronounced "MicroTonic") is a drum and percussion synthesizer combined with a pattern based drum-machine engine.

You can use µTonic as a sound module to play drum sounds from your MIDI keyboard or sequencer, or you can use the built-in pattern engine to play drum patterns in sync with your sequencer. The sound of µTonic is 100% synthetic and rendered in real-time. No samples or pre-rendered waveforms are used.

Sonic Charge µTonic was created by Magnus Lidström. Magnus is best known for his work with Propellerhead Software. In particular, he was the brain behind the highly acclaimed Malström synthesizer introduced in Reason 2.0. (Magnus is also responsible for Typhoon, the alternative OS for the Yamaha TX16W.).

Features:

  • Eight channel drum and percussion synthesizer. Fully automatable.
  • Pattern based drum machine engine, synchronized to the host sequencer.
  • 100% synthetic sound, rendered in real-time. No samples.
  • Versatile sound architecture allow for a wide variety of tweakable drums and effects.
  • Powerful sound shaping possibilities, including equalizing and distortion for each channel.
  • Uncompromised audio quality (Over-sampled oscillators, sample accurate triggering etc.).
  • Extreme parameter ranges with virtually infinite resolutions. Works in any sample-rate.
  • Straightforward and easy to use interface with context menus, popup hints etc.
  • Cut, copy, paste, load and save programs, individual drum patches and patterns.
  • Plenty of creative editing options, including randomizing functions etc.
  • MIDI out support. Use the pattern engine to control other plug-ins.
  • CPU efficient. Typically less than 5% CPU utilization for all eight channels on a 2.0GHz P4.
  • Comes bundled with a hefty chunk of factory sounds and patterns, free to use in productions.

I picked up Microtonic a couple of months ago and use it in everything i do now. Can't believe i never purchased this one earlier. Everything about it is great. Its a really fun and great sounding drum synth. Top notch for House and Minimal beats among others. Probably one of the best purchases iv'e made for my needs. This ones a keeper. I'd love to see some extra features but as it stands right now it's just perfect.

You bet ya. It's a quick way to some really creative hits...and basses...and FX. It helped to teach me what a bass drum can be besides a beater in the front, a bump and sin wave slide. So much more is possible with this, esp with 96 or so semi modulation range on the pitch and the various modulation options in this section. Synthesis engine. That simple interface is very misleading because some of the controls are actually dependent on other controls' settings. Experimentation is the key with this one. There are great options for getting patterns to the grid in a DAW and there are some fantastic Scripts with the semi-new script engine that can be added to help workflow and other neat things. It's a fantastic tool indeed. Congrats on yr new acquisition, may it continue to provide fruits. Cheers.
