Overview

Splash
New from UVI! Created for producers and sound designer of any genre, Drum Designer provides innovative tools allowing you to shape, pitch and tweak drum sounds in ways that would have been previously impossible or prohibitively time consuming. Born from a deep analysis of drum production techniques, Drum Designer delivers 4 specialised instruments along with a dedicated 8 part sequencer, a massive collection of 5,700+ samples, 2,000+ meticulously created drum presets, 316 kits, and more.

Approach

Demo 1Demo 2

Drum Designer has been developed to offer deep sound-shaping controls. Unlike sample packs which can be disappointing to manipulate, Drum Designer unlocks your drums, giving you the ability to surgically alter the individual components of each sound. Craft tight and hard-hitting kits with absolute control, easily match existing sounds to your track, instantly create variations, modulate any detail, and design wild new textures.

Drum Designer breaks down individual hits into discrete slices and layers, giving you the best of both raw synthesis and sample-based approaches to drum design. A massive collection of thousands of 'component' samples are combined together within 4 expressive drum engines: Kick, Snare, Clap and Cymbal, utilizing custom 3D wavetables and samples, filtering and DSP to help you create the next wave of signature beats.

Drum Engines

Drum Engines
Each drum engine in Drum Designer is a powerful instrument giving focused control over every component in its respective drum sound. Detailed editors for each component are provided along with a global editor and a robust effects page with Transient Designer, Soft Clip, Stereo Width, EQ and Convolver modules.
KickKick Title
Splitting the kick sound into Body and Tone sections, Kick Designer lets you select individual sounds for each component, adjust their pitch, gain, pan, keytracking, and LP and HP filters independently. You can change the phase of the tone so it aligns perfectly and even lengthen the tone component duration, unlike traditional sample packs. Use the Tone Amp editor to draw your own custom envelopes and then smooth it to taste.
SnareSnare Title
Start with the Body and Tone components found in the Kick Designer and add 2 discrete Noise layers each with the same level of control. The noise components are each capable of creating room sounds, ramps and tight attacks to emphasize the transient. Use the Tone editor to create unique envelopes for Amp and Pitch, and change the wave shape, phase and width.
ClapClap Title
Breaking down the traditional clap sound into 3 atomic elements called "shots" and a noise layer. Configure samples for each shot and then microedit them with the step editors for sound, time, gain, pan and pitch. The engine lets you design new and fresh clap sounds almost instantly; configure the 3 shot layers, engage the layer link and then use the prev/next buttons to get totally new sounds. Use the 'Humanize' control to get slight variations with each trigger.
CymbalCymbal Title
2 sophisticated noise and metallic texture layers create slight and natural variations on each trigger. The starting phase can also be locked to get a more traditional sample behavior. The shape of cymbal hits can easily be customized, allowing the creation of any kind of sounds: HH Closed, HH Open, Crash, Ride, Shaker, Tambourin, Percussions… but also reverse cymbal hits, long fx, sweeps with cymbal textures, freeze-like sounds.
Kit
A powerful instrument in its own right, Drum Designer's 'Sequencer' gives you 8 engines (1x Kick, 2x Snare, 1x Clap and 4x Cymbal) with Volume, Pan and Pitch sequencers up to 8 bars long at resolutions up to 1/64t. Quickly control Time, Gain, Pan, Pitch and sends for each engine, and finalize the sound with bus effects including a Compressor, EQ, Delay and Reverb. Even click-drag sequences to copy them as MIDI to your desktop or DAW.
