Chaos Management Workstation Updated

Fairly Confusing Waveforms tells us that Psychodrumma mark II is a reworked and expanded version of the Psychodrumma, fantasy, neo-retro drum machine/music generator for Kontakt 4. They say that it can act as a drum machine and generate random rhythmic, ambient or melody patterns.

Psychodrumma mark II is based on matrix of nine synchronized step sequencers, and a meta-sequecer. Most of settings can be programmed automatically by randomizers, creating strange machine music. It has plenty of knobs and a lot of flashing lights. The device comes with three banks of 100 one shot samples each, these eclectic sets were made from synthesized sounds (digital and analog), field recordings, animal sounds, unusual percussion, bass and guitar tones and noises, voice fragments, objects (metal plates, pots, radiators, machine parts, bicycle horn, plastic tubes, firecrackers), radio noise, vinyl crackles, car engine and icy snow squeaking under heavy boots.

mark II version new features:

  • algorithmic mode, makes it possible to playback or loop sequences of random events,
  • music box, tunes melodic samples to defined pattern, to create melody sequences,
  • reworked and expanded sound banks, including third tonal bank to use for generating melodies,
  • saving and loading presets, presets can then be sequenced in meta-sequencer, to create tracks inside the machine, preset-set can be then saved to file,
  • automated effects rack.

Pricing and Availability:
Psychodrumma mark II is available from Bandcamp at whatever price you want to pay.
The mark I version is now available for free
