IK Multimedia, the leader in analog modeling technology, introduces MODO DRUM, IK's first physical modeling drum virtual instrument. Like IK's award-winning MODO BASS software, MODO DRUM brings musicians of all styles and genres a new level of customization, detail and realism, as both a plug-in and standalone software.

Using a powerful combination of modal synthesis and advanced sampling, MODO DRUM offers 10 deeply customizable, virtual drum kits with real-time access to every parameter of each drum – from size and tension, to material and playing style, and more. Cymbals can also be tuned and damping adjusted to ensure incredibly realistic music tracks.

To further shape their sound, users can place their kit in different acoustic environments, and take advantage of a full mixer with sends and buses, as well as 19 studio processors and effects from IK's acclaimed T-RackS and AmpliTube software titles to add the final polish to any kit. An integrated Groove manager featuring more than 1400 grooves can also be used to enhance creativity.

Real-Time sound synthesis

Unlike traditional sample-based virtual instruments, MODO DRUM utilizes IK's award-winning modal synthesis technology and an ultra-optimized sound engine to bring drums to life. Each drum's acoustic behavior is determined by its physical parameters: dimensions, materials, skin, and more, as well by the playing style, the interaction of the drum head with the body, the effect of sympathetic vibrations and the acoustic interaction with the room. MODO DRUM creates authentic sound in real time, recreating those ever-changing interactions between the player, drums, and room on the fly.

10 Drum Kits, infinite possibilities

MODO DRUM's Showroom section offers 10 iconic drum kits to cover every style and genre of music. From jazz to grunge kits and maple shells to exotic bubinga, each kit has been chosen to represent a particular style, genre or time period, for the widest possible range of timbres and tones. Three complete cymbal sets are included, as well as tambourine, cowbell and claps for full General MIDI compatibility.

Customize a kit

MODO DRUM offers the most customization options ever seen in a drum plug-in, allowing users to control the entire act of playing drums – from the kit itself, to playing style, stick selection, room choice and effects.

The Customize section allows users to add, remove, swap and rearrange drums from starter kits. For each drum in the kit, users can then adjust a wide selection of elements on the fly, including the skins, tuning, damping, diameter, height and the shell profile of the drum itself.

For snare drums, the type and tension of the snare can be adjusted, and for both kick and snare, users can even adjust the sympathetic vibration of nearby drums. Cymbals can be tuned up and down, and damping can be adjusted to precisely shape their sound and performance.

Any element can be saved as an individual preset; entire kits can also be saved for future use.

Skip auditions; meet the new drummer

Beyond basic kit construction, users can also control the way the "drummer" plays each drum and cymbal, using the Play Style section.

Users can adjust the location and accuracy of each drum hit to shape the sound and give their grooves a more precise or more relaxed feel, and choose from a range of cymbal articulations. The kick drum can be customized to indicate a heel up or down technique and to select the type of beaters (felt, plastic or wood). A selection of stick types is also available for each hand.

For added realism, MODO DRUM's infinite round robin feature ensures that no two hits sound identical. As with a real drummer, it offers a subtly different performance every time.

Bring the room to everyone

MODO DRUM's Room section offers an array of drum placement scenarios, from a dry drum booth to IK's own in-house recording studio, to clubs, cathedrals and more. MODO DRUM uses convolution to ensure each element of a kit interacts naturally with the space and with each other. Let it ring or add gates and compression on the room tone for more creative drum sounds.

Fine-tuning made easy

The built-in mixer provides total control over the recorded sound. Users can adjust levels and panning per element as well as mute, solo, and flip phase. Elements can be grouped in buses, and each element has two sends to process multiple elements with the same global FX, for a more cohesive feel.

Also included is a massive suite of 19 studio processors and effects derived from IK's T-RackS and AmpliTube, to sculpt the final flavor of the kit (distortion, modulation, reverb/delay, and more). Tracks, buses, FX returns, and the master output each host an 8-band parametric EQ plus four additional effects slots for endless sound shaping possibilities.

Now get a groove on

For music-making inspiration, MODO DRUM provides an integrated Groove manager with more than 1400 grooves in a wide array of styles and moods. The Groove section contains MIDI patterns and variations to easily build song sections. Smart filters help users pinpoint specific loops by categories such as genre, length, and time signature. These loops were handcrafted by IK's team or drawn from their best-selling sample libraries to be unmistakably unique, authentic, and inspiring. Users can trigger all loops from within MODO DRUM, or drag and drop them into a DAW for additional possibilities.


The first physically modeled electric bass

The Producer's dream bass.

MODO BASS is the first physically modeled bass virtual instrument that gives you an unprecedented realistic performance for your bass tracks.

As a producer, you want the best possible bass sound you can get... you want realism, credibility and authenticity that delivers the most accurate and inspiring performance. Sometimes you just can't hire the right bass player, and some virtual instruments out there can leave you flat and uninspired.

Enter MODO BASS — the industry's first true physically modeled instrument from the leader in analog modeling technology. 8 years in the making and developed in collaboration with one of Europe's oldest universities, MODO BASS is a completely new breed of instrument that delivers the best of both worlds: the realism and sound of an instrument being played by a master musician and the convenience of a plug-in virtual instrument.

But MODO BASS isn't a virtual instrument by definition, it's a completely new technology that redefines realism from a computer based instrument. MODO BASS is the first technology of its kind that models the entire process of playing bass. Every component that contributes to the unique tonal properties of a bass player playing an instrument has been modeled, and the effects of each component on the other ones — the interactions between each tone variable — has been recreated to give you a dynamic, living breathing and ever-changing performance. You see, traditional virtual instruments are sample-based, meaning that sound is produced by triggering recorded samples of instruments. MODO BASS isn't a sample-based instrument, but rather a completely new technology where sound is generated by recreating the physical properties of a real instrument — everything that makes an instrument create sound is physically modeled and sound is synthesized in real time.

Real Time Sound Synthesis

Unlike traditional sample-based virtual instruments, MODO BASS utilizes a breakthrough technology to breathe life into bass tracks. Unlike traditional sample-based virtual instruments, MODO BASS utilizes modal synthesis technology and an ultra-optimized sound engine to model each string as a nonlinear resonator.

Each string's acoustic behavior is determined by its physical parameters, as well modeling the action of the player as a nonlinear physical interaction with certain areas on the string surface and the interaction of the string with fretboard, body and pick-ups of the instrument. Then using IK's cutting edge analog modeling expertise, the amp and effects rig of the electric bass is added to the sound chain.

All of this gives MODO BASS the ability to create sound in real time based on the construction and components of the bass combined with the player technique, finesse and the ever-changing dynamic interactions between the two. In short, MODO BASS brings — for the first time — ever-changing, hyper-realistic, living-breathing bass sound and performance to the world of virtual instruments. And since it doesn't use samples, MODO BASS has an extremely small memory footprint.

The Details

MODO BASS is a complete synthesis of bass playing and as such it lets you adjust and select virtually every aspect of bass playing. This means that MODO BASS can give you a limitless variety of bass sounds because, just like a real bass player, it gives you a different performance every time. With MODO BASS, you take unprecedented control of every aspect and control of a performance.

A collection of 14 bass models
2 new members of the family

MODO BASS gives you 14 iconic basses that span the history of music — 14 basses that define virtually every style and every genre of music recorded with an electric bass.

Each bass model was chosen for its particular timbre and wood tone, and every detail of the instrument's performance has been meticulously modeled and recreated.
