From samples to songs. Atlas 2 is a Sample Organiser and Drum Machine combined.

It has been designed with one goal in mind, to bring as much inspiration as possible to writing drum beats and rhythm elements.

The Atlas workflow consists of each major stage of beat-making:

  • Map: Our AI scans your sample folders and finds and categorises your samples. Samples are grouped by their characteristics (eg. deep long kicks, snappy snares) so you can quickly use your ears to move around the map and find what you're looking for.
  • Drum Kit: Either fill in the drum slots yourself or let Atlas suggest a whole kit for you with one button press.
  • Sample: Pitch, Pan, Filter, change the volume envelope, reverse the sample + more.
  • Sequencer: Feels fast to use like a step sequencer but lets you mix and match different timings (eg. put a hi hat triplet fill at the end of the beat). Generate variations of your beat with a button press.
  • Browser: Build your own library of beats or use the in-app download to get free content packs. Quickly load random Drum Kits/Sequences/Loops and mix and match to quickly create new beats.


  • AI finds and categorises your samples.
  • See your sample library as zoomable 2D maps organised by sample characteristics.
  • Drum Kits can be 8, 16, or even 64 channels. The UI can match your hardware controller.
  • Multi-channel output.
  • Powerful Drum Sequencer combines the speed of a traditional Step Sequencer with the flexibility of a Piano Roll.
  • Import MIDI. Export MIDI and Audio loops.
  • Mix and Match saved Drum Kits and Sequences to quickly create new beats.
  • Variation Engine for adding humanisation/randomisation to sample parameters.
  • In-app free content pack downloads.
  • Embed samples in DAW projects. (no more missing sample files).

System Requirements:

  • Available as Standalone, VST2, VST3, and AU.
  • 64-bit only.
  • Mac (Intel): macOS High Sierra 10.13 and above.
  • Mac (Apple Silicon: Native & Rosetta): macOS Big Sur 11 and above.
  • Windows: windows 7 and above.
  • Linux (beta): Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 18.04.
  • Other distros may work but are untested.

Truly excellent. Within 1 minute you can get some really interesting drum beats that actually sound brilliant. The random generator works very well and gives you something very usable and not just a mess of sounds, you can do that too if you want. It's so much fun to use and is quite astonishing for the price. It's great just to play around with when you have a spare 10 mins and save the results. It's a massive time saver but helps creativity also. The updates are really good too, so much more has been added since V2. Respect to the dev.
