Soundscape - FX Adaris Code

2016-04-12 11:16:31

Welcome sound designers! Here is what is new with me. I have been working on a percussion and sound design expansion pack for users of Steinberg's Padshop and Padshop Pro called Granular Drum Kits. It has 350 presets and 278 manipulated stereo samples.

  • 1 Bass Patch
  • 4 Bells
  • 22 Cymbals
  • 38 Drumsets
  • 23 Hats
  • 24 Kicks
  • 6 Claps and Hits
  • 23 Percussion Patches
  • 67 Snares
  • 39 Toms
  • 3 Hits & Stabs
  • 43 Motion FX
  • 19 Mechanical SFX
  • 18 Percussion FX
  • 20 Synthetic FX

You might be thinking, using Padshop or Padshop Pro for a percussion virtual instrument is a bit different. It is a new and old approach for creating drum and percussion tracks for some users. I found it to be an interesting way to have control on individual sounds when constructing drum kits and cinematic drum templates. One of the coolest things about this expansion pack is the soundscapes that it provides. I found the motion FX's to be very useful for trailer music, film scores and sound design. So the GDK expansion pack isn't only a percussion sound set but a soundscape power machine.

Today's video post is called "FX Adaris Code". It is a good example of the soundscape and sound design production possibilities by using only presets from the GDK expansion pack.
