New Software Drum Machine

FXpansion Tremor features powerful synthesis, effects, modulation and step-sequencing      10/01/12

FXpansion has introduced Tremor, which they describe as a software drum machine with powerful synthesis, effects, modulation and step-sequencing. The company tells us that DCAM circuit-modelled sound generation is fused with new ideas to produce original sounds with the punch and extreme sound pressure of old-school analogue. They say that Tremor's dance drums, funky beatscapes, abstract machines and undiscovered sonic terrain are suited to all kinds of electronic, urban and experimental music. Here's more details in Fxpansion's own words...
Central to each of Tremor's 8 synthesis engines is a specialized DCAM oscillator with harmonic partials akin to a drumskin's modes of vibration. Mixed with a sub-oscillator and tuned noise source, the signal is sculpted by modelled drive/filter/FX sections and razor-sharp envelopes. Tremor's diverse output includes classic kicks, snares and claps, organic hats and body-shaking subs alongside futuristic zaps, scrapes, textures and sounds that defy classification.
The TransMod modulation system in Tremor is easier and deeper than a mod-matrix. It offers new sound design possibilities and lets you animate sounds with LFOs, step-automation sequences and real-time macro controls while the synthesis engine reacts just like real analogue circuits. Tremor's sonic potential is showcased in the included suite of presets by a team of elite sound designers.
