The Ultimate Construction Kit

The ultimate snare construction kit has arrived. Created by multi-award-winning artist Davide Carbone, DC Snares is designed to simplify your workflow and add serious impact to your productions. Whether you are exploring hundreds of custom-made onboard sounds, experimenting with the purpose-built synth engine, in-built randomiser or simply layering your own samples, this efficient plugin makes creating powerful snares easier and more intuitive than ever.

And for when you want to be able to shape and mangle your snares, DC Snares has you covered. Explore powerful pitch and amp envelopes with waveform displays that respond in real-time, a bespoke snare-oriented rearrangeable effect chain, including modules such as the 'Sizzler', 'Transient Shaper' and 'Resonator', as well as a four-slot sample layering system offering endless possibilities.

Perform your snares using the internal sequencer engine, designed to make playing and programming snare rolls intuitive and fun. Perform pitch-able triplet rolls or straight divisions. Or just play your snares chromatically.
DC Snares is just as useful at making kicks, bass, hats, rims, claps and provides all the percussive power you need for your next track.

What Can DC Snares Be Used For?:

  • Beat Creation: Create unique beats and percussive sounds to suit any genre, from hip-hop, trap and D&B, to EDM, rock and pop.
  • Sound Design and Audio Production: Artists and sound designers can craft custom percussive sounds, effects and textures that can be used across film scores, video games, commercials and podcasts.
  • Layering and Enhancement: Enhance any drum track by creating unique percussive elements to add complexity and depth to your music.
  • Live Performance: Musicians can integrate DC Snares into their live setup, triggering and manipulating percussive sounds in real time during performances.
  • Create unique samples tailored to you: Seamlessly generate a library of samples crafted by you, ready to be used in future projects or added to your personal bank of original sounds.

DC's Snare Production Method Made Easy

Drum and bass producers have become familiar with David Carbone's revolutionary Drum and Bass Masterclass pack; call up sounds quickly, accentuate the rattle and wires of a snare, combine live and electronic sources, add a huge reverb with a gate. Now these methods and tools used by DC are combined into a refined workflow and dedicated plugin, creating the freedom to make unique snares for any genre.

Not Just any Randomiser.

Algorithmically human Randomiser which also auto-generates a name based on content. Create bespoke snares, hits and soundscapes with endless permutations - in an instant.

Four Customisable Sound Slots.

Four customisable sound slots allow you to select from the 684 internal samples, drag and drop your own samples, load up a synth engine or auto-populate with the randomiser to layer sounds. Each sound slot has its own adjustable amp and pitch envelope, inviting producers to further customise their sounds.

Pitch and Amp Envelopes with Real Time Display.

Quickly reshape your sounds by altering the pitch or adjusting your audio envelopes, and see the waveform update in real time both for each sound slot, as well as overall. The waveform display updates in real-time when adding or adjusting the internal FX, allowing for complete visual control of your snare experimentation.

Twelve Proprietary Insert and Master FX Slots.

The custom-made FX are a big part of what makes DC Snares unique, replicating a typical FX chain used by Davide Carbone in his design process. The 'Sizzler' is a world first that replicates how a room responds to the rattle of a snare, while the 'Resonator' and 'Transient Shaper' are specifically made to suit snare creation. Any of these effects can be easily reordered for maximum impact.

Playable Performance Engine.

DC Snares thrives as a live instrument. Utilising a MIDI controller or the internal keyboard, pitch snares up or down, and create powerful rolls using note divisions.

Assignable Modulation Envelopes.

Four mappable envelopes and hundreds of parameters ensure total flexibility and endless possibilities within your sound design.
