Drum Machine For Ableton

Sonic Faction releases The Beatdown      20/07/12

Sonic Faction has introduced The Beatdown, which they describe as a radical new drum machine for Ableton Live. A spokesperson told Sonic State, "We crafted The Beatdown from the ground up, giving users superior sound quality and unprecedented control. We started by sampling the Elektron Machine Drum and rebuilding it inside of Ableton, staying true to the instrument's unique design. Inspired by the flexibility of our new instrument, we then added 6 additional drum kits that cover all of the most popular dance music genres. Its styles range from Analog Hip Hop madness, to fresh House beats, to viscous Dubstep wobbles and Experimental glitches. The result is a slamming drum machine that will have you dropping next level beats instantly." Features
  • The Beatdown includes 10 meticulously sampled and sculpted drum kits. It's unique design allows you to mix and match kits on the fly. Designed to be instantly playable.
  • Tweakability of The Beatdown is unrivaled, allowing you to create entirely new drum sounds. At the twist of a knob, you can manipulate each sound's most useful parameters like pitch, decay and FX.
  • The Beatdown includes a free Max for Live Step Sequencer for Launchpad and APC40. This custom device frees you from the mouse and gives you hands-on control like never before.
