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.
I Love this drummachine! To be able to play the parts separately with keyboard in different pitches is an outstanding feature.
Is it just me or did a DC-offset bug krept in on windows 7 when turning up the distortion? It was fine on XP.. tried it at a diffrent DAW and pc, but still the same bug.. DC-offset sucks. : (.
maybe i have some wrong settings in Win7? strange that i can't find anyone else posting on this matter.
turns out the DC-offset is also on XP ...maybe i didn't notice it before.. but its very obvious when turning distortion up and EQ-gain to the negative side (left)
And if you sucked it dry completely you can use the sequencer to trigger other instruments because it transmits MIDI out.
