Heavyocity and Icebreaker Audio are proud to introduce BitRate II, the all-new semi-modular 8-bit drum machine for Reaktor.

BitRate II uses multiple methods of retro digital synthesis and sampling to produce charismatic and nostalgic drum sounds. The included sound engines cover chipsounds, FM synthesis, lofi sampling, and glitchy circuit bending.

On top of these unique sound engines, BitRate II also offers a 5-track mixer and a master fx section that includes an analogue modelled EQ, bus compressor, and speaker simulator for added lo-fi effect.

The drums can be triggered via MIDI or from the internal sequencer. The sequencer provides two modulation sequences per drum, which can be routed to virtually any combination of sound parameters in any amount.

BitRate II also comes bundled with the MonoBoy instrument, a melodic counterpart for BitRate II. MonoBoy uses similar sound engines, but in an interface more suited to melodic playing.

The BitRate II Bundle ships with a total of 140 preset snapshots including a variety of sounds from kits and beats to synths and samples.

BitRate II Key Features:

  • 5 drum slots into which you can load any one of 4 sound engines.
  • 4 lo-fi digital sound engines: Chip, FM, Sampler, Glitch.
  • The ability to sample from the audio input into a custom-built sample engine.
  • A built-in sequencer with 2 modulation sequences per drum.
  • Per-track sequence length, allowing for complex poly-rhythms.
  • EQ, Compressor, and Speaker Simulator master effects.

MonoBoy Key Features:

  • 3 sound generator modes, including a unique DM sampler.
  • Easy-to-use arpeggiator and Voice Controls.
  • 2 Modulation sequences.
  • A master FX section that includes the one-of-a-kind Bit Delay effect.

Powered by Native Instruments Reaktor 5.9 Full software version, BitRate II offers all playback and sound shaping functionality through the Full Reaktor 5.9 version.

*Reaktor Player will only allow use of product in demo mode.
