Never noticed he didn't have any demos of it out there. I guess this was an impulse buy for me.

Anywho, this one uses the Drum Synth on the kick (I think):


This has the drum synth on the kick, and someone asked about the Snare Lab 101; it's on this track. If I remember correctly, the drums were submixed and then overdriven.


And here's another where I use it as a kick drum. This time the EMW Fixed Frequency Filter and EMW Compressor are used to give it that rubbery sound.


So yeah, in vids I use it as a kick drum a lot. I might have to make a demo vid that shows the range of what it can do.

Found one where I think it's doing the snare because I know that kick was Peaks. Whole drum section was treated with Warps being modulated by an envelope.

@ Derp those were awesome. Bumped the EMW module way up my GAS list. You should make that demo video

I almost did it this weekend, but I was feeling lazy.

Got the DS-M and Transient this weekend.

The DS-M is cool, though a little limited in what it can do. It does good kicks and toms, but it feels like a struggle to get a good snare out of it in spite of the different colors of noise on it.

The Future Retro Transient... I normally love every module that comes through my hands, but the Transient isn't one of those. Don't get me wrong, it can sound great and is very powerful and capable, but the way to program your sounds on it is tedious. For programming, it's one push-button encoder knob and a whole slew of parameters with a ton of options. It's not as tedious as programming say an E-Mu ROMpler, but that's not for lack of trying. I'd really only recommend this module to people with a whole ton of patience because it sounds good, but it's a lot of work to get there. Tons of presets, but I don't think many of them really show what this thing is really capable of.

Yeah I was really hot for this until I saw the editing stuff, not my thing at all...

Yeah, if you're looking at the O_C thinking it's too much tedium, then stay the hell away from Transient. The O_C programming looks cumbersome, but actually makes a lot of sense and is easy to navigate. Programming the Transient is like programming a DX7, but without the buttons to get between menus.

That's awesome. Time for me to get a bigger case so I can snatch one of those up. Thanks for making that!

When finances allow I will be picking up a couple of the Erica modules.

The Erica looks interesting but when watching a demo of the kick drum, I got the impression that the parameter ranges were extended in a way that would make it only more difficult for my use cases to hit the sweet spot. Maybe some other of their modules I might buy. Toms/ Congas covering timbres from 808 to 909 would be highly appreciated but never seem to be on any manufacturer‘s list.

909 Toms are offered by both Erica Synths and Tip Top.

Rabid Elephant are working on a Kick module, I am pretty curious what it will sound like.

So many kick modules now. It's going to be tough to stand out.
Still....good luck to them.

Yeah, my search for a kick module ended with the Entity which produces utter devastation. Can't see how this could improve on that.

They did a unique job on the Natural Gate, let's see if their Kick will be special too.

Pushin' a different direction with these. Slightly modified Trigger Riot and heavily modified DR-220.

I like the sound of the 808 toms and don‘t want three separate voices of 909 toms as I rarely would use more than one at once.

The 2HP Kick, Snare, and Hat have recently grabbed my attention. Not many demos out there, but they sound like they've got a pretty large range on them in spite of minimal controls. My ModBrane crapped out on me, so I'm not in as big a rush to get the ModBase.

I've got Entity BD, BIA, Plonk and 2HP Hats among others.

They're all excellent in their own way, but I can highly recommend the hats module. It simplistic but has a large sweet spot. Really like it.

Thanks I need to post some audio of that combo. I use 'mute' circuit bends and it has taught me so much about timing.

For hats the Acidlab module is my favourite so far but it‘s a huge module and despite having three volume knobs, it doesn‘t have a mix out.

Anyone tried the WMD Chimera? It looks like the metal sounds module to end all others.

I have one and really like it, but am still not quite sure if I’m underutilizing it or only really find a handful of sweet spots I like with it. Probably both. It’s my go-to for hats and things, but I got a BIA a few months after and maybe would have held off on the Chimera if I’d gone in a different order. Assuming you mean “metal” as in metallic sounds and not , I find the BIA a bit closer to that, especially given how you can sculpt the sound...but honestly, having both together gives a crazy amount of sounds.

Cheers,.

It’s great for closed hat type sounds, but I find it difficult to get stuff like rides or even open hats out of my BIA without adding some undesirable sounds so use the TTA Hats808 For hats most of the time and for longer decaying stuff I’m usually on samples or badly approximating with noise, envelopes, vcas etc.

Chimera looked like it could do everything from hats, rides, crashes, chimes etc all the way to broken glass effects.
