MHC Synthesizers and Effects releases Acoustic Kits Drum Plug-in

MHC Synthesizers and Effects

MHC Synthesizers and Effects has announced that its Ambient Kits drum plug-in is now bundled with a new plugin: Acoustic Kits and 6 soundpacks (3 of them focus on acoustic drum sounds on 3 on ambient drum sounds).

Acoustic KitsAmbient Kits and Acoustic Kits are drum plugins which feature 12 drum pads, a search application, predefined drum kits which may be edited and a drum sample library.

The plugins include default soundpacks with hundreds of drum samples. The user can add more sounds by downloading 6 soundpacks which upgrade the plugins, giving the user 2048 presets to explore, 240 preprogrammed drum kits and over 4000 drum samples to use.

The plugins have traditional synth sections, including a resonant filter, filter envelope, amp envelope, pitch modulation and an effect section. The effect section features 130 different effect modes, including a variety of filter banks, flanger, resonator, pitch shifter, etc. Effects may be layered or crossfaded and they may be modulated by a multi shape LFO.

The 12 drum pads/sounds are velocity sensitive and velocity may control amp (volume) or filter cutoff. Velocity may be switched off entirely as well, for precise programming of drum levels.

The drum search application may be invoked from the plugins or it may be used as a stand alone application to maintain any drum sample collection on the user's hard disk. The drum search application is used to edit kits and to search for the right drum sounds.

Pricing & Availability

The plugins are available as VST instrument plugins for Windows. An Audio Unit (Universal Binary) for Mac OS X is planned, but no date has been set for the Mac release yet.

The plugin bundle is priced at $199 including the two plugins and the 6 soundpacks.

However, until the end of August MHC is offering a 50% discount on all its plugins, including the drum plugin bundle. Use the coupon code sd-79-dw-11 on the order page to obtain the discount. In addition, customers who use the discount before the end of August also receive the Ambient Loops sample library free of charge (worth $59).
