Drum Computer is your new drum synth secret weapon.

Sugar bytes is known for its well designed, deceptively deep, incredibly fun, and very musical plug-ins, VSTs and iOS apps. Their latest, Drum Computer, is no exception.

Drum Computer is a new and refreshing take on drum synthesis, combining 3 types of synthesis to make up the core sound. Drum Computer uses an 808 style analog emulation synthesis, wavetable synthesis, and their very own resynth synthesis. Together these forms of drum synthesis generate a unique and very malleable sound palette that is distinctively the sound of Drum Computer.

I am an avid fan and evangelist of drum machines. I would encourage anyone in any genre to buy more drum machines and drum synths. As an artist and producer, you have to be able to carve out your own sound and stay inspired. Drum Computer allows you to do so easily whether with the various styles of synthesis, the humanization features in the sequencer or the randomization features. Don’t sleep on Drum Computer!

DrumComputer is the new specialist for synthetic drums, combining classic and modern synthesis with flexible modulations and luxurious sequencing. Intelligent randomizers, elegant pattern editing, and import of your own samples are just a few of the mind-blowing possibilities. Enjoy new drums every day and get inspired by all the creativity that DrumComputer sets free. Just because, there still is all the unheard of.

Sound Engines

8 individual sound engines contain all the DSP goodies and share presets, so you can exchange sounds between engines. 3 synthesis layers cover a broad variety of timbres, from a classical analog Resonator to Wavetable, plus the awesome Resynth, which brings you liquidized cymbals, snares and synths.

Multimode filter, Compressor, Distortion and 2 kinds of Send Reverbs provide a vast toolset to carve the drums of tomorrow. Enjoy the 2 included ENV/LFO hybrids with lots of waveforms and the flexible modulation matrix with sources and targets all over the instrument.
