Attack is a percussion synthesizer that integrates the sound of the 80's analog classics and the ambitious electronic club drums of the 90's into the software system of the 21st century. Attack generates all its sounds in real time, giving you the freedom to alter all parameters directly.

Attack has 24 sounds available per percussion set, spread over two octaves. The sound architecture is extremely flexible, as one would expect from a Waldorf synthesizer. Two oscillators, each with nine waveforms, represent the sources. In addition to well-known analog waveforms, Attack offers three samples to help create hi-hats or crash cymbals. Ring modulation and frequency modulation expand the sound spectrum with a metallic component and FX sounds. The integrated "Crack" module takes care of reproducing analog handclaps authentically.

Attack contains a filter section with 6 filter types, resonance up to self-oscillation, and an overdrive of up to +52dB. The two envelopes are used to alter oscillator pitches, FM amount, filter cutoff, and the output volume. Two modulation delays and eight outputs (2 stereo, 4 mono) connect Attack to the VST world. Seamless integration into the VST 2.0 interface means that all parameters may be addressed via MIDI controllers, allowing you to create powerful dynamic changes.

And as though this were not enough - twelve sounds in each drum set can be played melodically. With this feature you can create tom fills and conga or other percussive grooves in no time, and you can even play bass, melody or sequencer lines.

There are 4 links to the waldorf site on this page. There, at the top of your screen, you see "shop".

Here's a direct link to the Waldorf Edition, containing Attack: http://www.waldorfmusic-shop.de/epages/61933844.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/61933844/Categories/Waldorf_Edition.

At the top of this page, just beside the picture you see a link "Product". In almost all the product KVR pages it drives directly to the product page in the website of the company or of the developer.

Sometimes the link is dead. When it occurs you can tell by the link "Developer" just under the link "Product".

And if this second link doesn't work either... it means that the website itself is dead. And that... if it was the website of a company it is generally a very bad sign. But if the product was a shareware or a freeware it remains then two possible solutions:

  1. Search (or directly ask) in the KVR forums.
  2. Search by using a web search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo...).

When the product was freeware, very often you'll find easily in the forums someone who knows where to download it, or even who has it and who will send you the product or upload it somewhere and give you a link.
