INNOVATIVE PERCUSSIVE ATMOSPHERES
FRAGMENTS – MODERN PERCUSSION is a percussion instrument built from sounds that aren’t typically found in your standard percussion library. Each sound was recorded in twelve round robins and up to five velocity layers, with an FX and randomization engine that gives the feeling of a truly human touch (literally, since we even used parts of the human body!).
INTRICATE RHYTHMS MADE EASY
Each beat generator features a sequencer with two randomization features: one lays out the initial pattern and the other shakes it up with every turn. It also includes control over our Density feature that fills out the sound and adds hits of varying velocities to every silent step.
LAYERS UPON LAYERS
Each layer of the engine functions off its own five layers that you can turn on and off, or customize the sound further by allowing the engine to randomly select sounds and panning position.
JUMPSTART THE CREATIVE PROCESS
From bread and butter to cinematic and experimental, we’ve designed a vast array of presets to get you started. From over 100 presets, begin your percussion journey the right way.
POWER IN SUBTLETY
With FRAGMENTS – MODERN PERCUSSION’s ingenious controls, it’s surprisingly simple to create a unique, intricate sound.
CRAFT MOVEMENT THROUGH RHYTHM
Each of the three layers has their own independent design options that allow you to craft your own sounds and rhythms quickly and easily with FRAGMENTS – MODERN PERCUSSION.
A MATERIAL ADVANTAGE
The Bass and Snare slots feature 3 organic sounds each recorded with 12 round robins, while the Fragments slot contains 17 sounds. Sounds can be selected by their source: Wood, Metal, Mechanical, Body, or a sound you drag-and-drop into the User section. Control which sounds are sourced, the panning, or make it all random.
A DASH OF THE SECRET SAUCE
The hidden secret of the sequencer is the Density option, which fills in the gaps at random velocities. This can be tied to the modwheel, allowing you to easily switch between minimal and complex rhythms.
INCREASE THE CONTROL
Determine how to control the Tone and Density options on your MIDI keyboard. Set the minimum and maximum for each to tighten the design function.
MAKE IT PERSONAL
