Replaced by Yumbu 2

Yumbu is slot driven drum sampler. It also brings up lightning speed drum-kits loading and fast one stage control, fitted for live usage. Now, with better control, both mp3 and wav. format support, faster workflow and only 0.5 sec. loading times for new core kit, Yumbu is one of the quickest drum samplers in the market.

The sampler

Yumbu uses 10 (.wav, mp3) file sample slots to build 10 drum components drum-kits. According to this approach, every slot can be anything, from kicks to snares or cymbals or you name it. Each slot is triggered by its own unique MIDI note which noted on its slot button. For instance, slot 48 is triggered by note number 48 in the MIDI keyboard (c2). The samples menu is divided into 14 categories, including a wide range of drum-kit components types. Each type button (kicks, snares, claps, etc.) is directing to it's own sample library folder which located at "C:\Users\yourname\Documents\Fananteam\Yumbu\USER". Each sample slot has also a room for user's imported samples which can be added manually to the "user" folder. Yumbu comes with 30 full drum-kits to start with.

Yumbu has a built-in mixer that allows you to tweak any sample separately. You can use the EQ, change the pitch, add a random pitch manipulation to every sample, pan and you can use our pitch based round robin effect which has a wide control ability on the final sound. The mixer is also armed with 3 master effects (compressor, reverb, delay) with a brand new unique effect called "F.R" which allows full scale frequency control over the wet signal. You can use the effect by sending a fx amount from the "master fx" knob on every channel or you can override the per cell sending and just send them directly to the master effect.

The kit manager

Yumbu loads drumkits extremely fast, only 0.5 sec for full loading, and uses a "one button press" preset manager which allows a super-fast presets switching by MIDI assignable buttons. It can set "sample start and "sample end" points with MIDI assignable knobs and it also allows you to tweak the active keyboard's octaves starting points. Yumbu uses 24 presets drumkit banks. Each preset represents a full drumkit containing all the components and settings.

The Morph System

Yumbu is armed with brand new morphing system which can blend any 2 drum elements together (which can create tons of new fresh drum sounds). The morph system can also play with the blended element's pitch and increase the invention of new drum sounds like never before.

Special channel's modulation effects

Each channel in Yumbu is armed with dedicated modulation effects which allow adding beautiful nuances and textures to each drum element separately. There is a yowling phaser effect, a delay and the new Zelda filter which can completely change the audio materials native character and morph it into a new interesting sound.

Needs more work to be useful. When changing the slots from one to another the next slot is the same number as the previous slots number selected and does not maintain what it was before. Also seems not to maintain the preset selected for a project when that project is reloaded.

Thanks for the comment. The preset part will be fixed soon. But didn't understand the first part. Here the numbers of the kit slots remain normal when switching. Any chance you can take a screenshot of it please?

I will try to explain better. Say you have selected kik one, when clicking on the snare select it also will come up Snare One, and so on with each slot selected with be taken the sample from slot one, not whatever it was in that preset previously. Whatever number of slot is selected the one's selected after that will be the same number. Also how does one use own samples in this. I tried by moving samples into the fanatan folder but did not see any come up in the vsti section for user. Thanks.

I understand. Well. This kind of "save the previous" is impossible, unless you save a built kit to a preset. For instance, if you jump for one element section to another, the previous section is lost, since the selector is ad-hoc. Once you save it, it gets stored.

To bring your own samples, add them into "C:\Users\*user*\Documents\Fananteam\Yumbu\user folder. Then you'll see them in the plugin's user section.

The preset issue solved. You can re-download it.

Okay good, Thank you.

64-bit version Crashes in Reaper for me when playing the built in keyboard. I have to say having no separate audio channels out is a problem. The overall reverb is of little use for me. i like to add reverb to the hits separately.Not that impressed by the drum sounds either. I had just finished messing around with Akai MPC beats and the quality difference was huge. Nice idea though.

1) The crash on reaper fixed. Not crashing here.

2) The separate audio channels support added.

3) You can always use the "add fx" knob to add a fixed amount of effect per slot.

4) "Audio quality" is subjective in that case. The plugin uses top quality samples (but singles, not multi-layers).

Thanks for the comment.

Hello. I have put some samples into the user folder but they don't show up on the plugin. So ? Maybe the samples (wave) are not the right type? Should they be put in a folder called Samples?

Hi, .

Thanks for the comment. It was a bug and it's now fixed. Please re-download the fixed dll files. Now it gonna read your samples from the folder called "user". Just move your samples into there and once you open Yumbu in your DAW and set any of the slots to "user" section, they should appear.

Best wishes.
