Granular Drum Kits - FX Alfa One

2016-04-14 05:23:36

Welcome! Got a very cool patch that I want to share with you today called FX Alfa One. It's a preset from 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

I found that the GDK expansion pack isn't only a cool percussion sound set but a soundscape power machine for film and video game sound design.

Here is today's video post. It is a good example of the soundscape and sound design production possibilities by using only presets from the GDK expansion pack. Listen how long it takes for the patch to morph. Wait For It!

Check it out!
