The Granular Drive

2016-05-03 14:39:28

Welcome! Got a very cool instrumental that I want to share with you today called The Granular Drive. It's a composition that I wrote from a percussion and sound design expansion pack for users of Steinberg's Padshop and Padshop Pro called Granular Drum Kits that I produced. 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 for genres like dub step, house and trip-hop but a soundscape power machine for film and video game sound design.

Here is today's video post. It is a good example of using only presets from the GDK expansion pack.

Check it out!
