Pluggotic has released TrueBlue, a Drum-Module for Kontakt sampled from the "mkII" version of an analog DrumSynth made in East Germany.
ToyBoy features eight drum channels with a total of 100 sounds: Bassdrum, Snare, HiHat, Clap, Percussion, Tom1, Tom2 and Cymbal.
"Old school" spirit and raw vibe of the drum synth, including subtle sounds drifting derived from analog circuitry and free-running oscillators, has been sampled and can be manipulated through a simple MIDI-Notes operated interface. Resulting drum kits can be played raw or treated with envelopes or FX, routed to individual outputs for multichannel operations (depending from availability) and stored as patches.
