Why I did this instrument. I did it for myself because many times I was missing powerful low punchy phat super meat kick in my tracks. I tried samples, instruments, chains of plugins on top of kick but it was always a compromise. And lucky persons who have boxes they always have better sounds. The problem was that boxes were expensive, all those Jomox and Roland toys with perfect sine wave cost unbelievable amount of dirty money. So one day I`ve sampled all analog kicks that I can find, put them all together and made a first device - Analog Techno Kick. It was phat and powerful but it has a lot of compromises. But many people like this device so I felt that I`m going on right direction. So after half a year of techno meditation I combine my rompler with HarmonicBoosting technology by SyncerSoft and finally miracle happens. Walls and windows of my studio start to vibrate from phat subbase the way i want. So now the balance of techno music all over the world can be changed radically. You can download demo and try this Analog Kick Phatness in your tracks and you will hear what i mean. Pricing and Availability:
