Angular Momentum releases AM KickLab XXL
Angular Momentum has announced the release of AM KickLab XXL, a virtual kickdrum designer for Windows.
Kicklab XXL is the most advanced Kickmaking machine on the market, with the whole vst dedicated solely to the most important percussion element of any electronic track, the KICK.
Kicklab XXL features many original and unique functions and tricks that are often employed by the most savvy dj producers/engineers to get their kicks well and truly NAILED and brings all of these together into one beautiful interface. Kicklab XXL has two powerful sound-generating sections, a Virtual Kick Synth and a Kick Sampler section [with import functions] to rejuvenate your static kick samples with big, warm powerful synth kick sub. With filters on the sample to avoid frequency cancellation, phase change buttons to help match bottom end, delay trims to line up both kick attacks exactly, volume mixing with EQ and saturation options the KICKLAB XXL will create the big, in-your face, round stomping kicks with deep sub that you always dreamed of.
