Jennifer Hruska, CEO of 2getheraudio, says:
Our K1CK Synth and CL4P Maker products have been really popular. Our customers like the customized and direct approach these instruments provide. Pair that with great sonic results and you've got an electronic drum solution customers want to get their hands on.
Under the hood, SN4RE Drum uses a custom audio engine with specialized synth oscillators to generate the body of the snare drum and a noise and EQ circuit to handle the sound of the snare wires. Individual envelopes for pitch and amplitude shape the decay while customized drive and compression circuits dial in the punch. Effects, including bit crushing, decimation, and low pass and high pass filters deliver add to the wide range of sonic possibilities. A high quality convolution reverb is also included for added ambiance.
For those without the time or expertise to fine tune all these parameters, SN4RE Drum offers a Simple View which exposes just four sound control knobs, 4 effects buttons and 4 reverb options for quickly dialing in your sound. When needed, an Expert View takes you under the hood for finer control.
SN4RE Drum supports 64-bit VST, AU, AAX capable DAWs. It is Mac and Windows compatible. SN4RE Drum is released under 2getheraudio's Pay-What-You-Want (minimum $10) business model so nearly all musicians, regardless of their ability to pay, have access to this software.
