Rob Papen has released Punch-BD, a new instrument plugin based around the BD module of the multi Punch virtual drum synth. Punch-BD is a creative module designed to help you to produce "the fattest sounding bass drums for your music".
Stacking bass drums is a popular technique used by today's music producers and Punch-BD gives you the ability to stack up to 6 in total. Divide the 6 BD pads over the keyboard or use them 'stacked' in tuned mode to produce creative new BD sounds for all styles of contemporary music.
Punch-BD delivers synthesized drums or you can choose to load in your own samples for complete flexibility. Each pad has its own distortion module with several distortion types as well as its own 3 band graphic EQ. What's more, each individual pad also has its own preset section next to the overall 'BD kit'.
Like its big brother, Punch-BD features four FX units each with 31 types of FX plus further filters, envelopes, modulation routings and more for crafting your own unique sound.
Price: €49 / $59. Punch, EDM Bundle, Urban Bundle and eXplorer-III owners get Punch-BD for free.
