HG Fortune Intros Percumat 2 Drum Machine For Windows


HG Fortune has introduced Percumat 2 - a "versatile Rhythm machine for backing drums percussion so definitively not an 808 or 909 type thingie.".

Description:

Percumat 2 features 6 instrument parts / slots to choose from 512 inbuilt drum & percussions sounds.

here are two step sequencers: one for setting up the beat steps in groups of 4 x 8 steps (or 4 x half a bar) labeled A1, A2, B1 & B2, while the 2nd sequencers on the left allows you to control a sequence of the 8 step beat groups in 16 steps.

In addition to that there is an Auto Track Mute feature for tracks 4, 5 and 6 to have one or two tracks muted for a certain range.

The beat step sequencer does offer two additional features: StepMode and Play number of Beats i.e. Steps so you can have a 7/8, 6/8, 5/8 or even 3/8 beats while Step Mode changes the order of steps to play in jumping to every 3rd, 4th, 5th etc. step with setting at 7 steps playing the sequence backwards. This is a real playground not only for the lovers of experimental rhythms.

The unit offers 512 drum & percussion sounds in four banks which are sorted in a similar way:

  • 1 - 16 = Kicks
  • 17 - 32 = HiHats
  • 33 - 46 = Snares
  • 47 - 52 = Toms
  • 53 - 62 = Cymbals
  • 63 - 66 = Tambourines
  • 67 - 75 = Shaker, Maracas etc.
  • 76 - 80 = Rattles,
  • 81 - 100 = Ethnic perc (Tabla, Udu etc.)
  • 101 - 105 = Blips, Claps
