Host DAW 32-bit or 64-bit with support for VST version 2.4
Mandelbrot Drummer VST Rhythm Maker is a MIDI Sequencer...
- Quickly lay out drum patterns - much easier than a piano roll editor.
- Easily vary velocity across the patterns - use Mandelbrot fractals to alter velocity rhythmically.
- Rapidly audition different sounds and placement of hits - experiment by nudging hits relative to each other.
- Synchronize to your song with simple MIDI triggers.
- Integrated with your DAW - save and restore using host presets.
- Experiment with poly-rhythms and unusual time signatures.
- Use it to play your favourite drum sounds.
- Use it to create bass patterns too.
- The download includes example projects for Cubase, Ableton Live, FL Studio and Sonar.
- The plug-in may also be run as a stand-alone application.
Configuring in your DAW
Mandelbrot Drummer is an unusual type of VST instrument. It generates MIDI, not audio. To use it you need a second plug-in of your own choice which will provide the drum sounds. There are many drum machine plug-ins available and most DAWs ship with a suitable example to get beginners started (e.g. Impulse in Ableton Live, Groove Agent in Cubase, SI-Drums in Sonar, FPC in FL Studio). To use Mandelbrot Drummer you must route the MIDI output to the drum machine of your choice. There are guidance notes included in the download, but please also consult your DAW documentation if you are not sure how to do that.

More on concepts
This is a plug-in for computer musicians who want to experiment with drum patterns to find interesting rhythms for their music. It is based around a simple idea. Groups of drum hits are placed across an image of a Mandelbrot fractal. The velocity of each hit is related to the color intensity of the underlying fractal. The variation in color intensity (i.e. velocity) across the fractal imparts subtle and unexpected rhythms which can mimic a human drummer.
When working on a music project it can be frustrating and unproductive to trawl through hundreds of drum clips looking for something with the right feel. Many musicians find that constructing patterns from scratch in a piano roll editor is a difficult task. Based around a simple concept, Mandelbrot Drummer is an alternative way to make rhythm patterns and is designed to be a practical tool for computer musicians.
