Fairly Confusing Waveforms has announced Psychodrumma, a free sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Psychodrumma is nonsensical drum machine for NI Kontakt 4, focused on creating random and randomly evolving rhythmic patterns. It is experimental sound device and although it could be used as a regular drum machine, it would be probably impractical.
It is build of nine modules, called pads, each can playback a sound from one of two banks of 100 samples each, each has separate sound control rack and its own simple sequencer. All sequencers are synchronized with host tempo, but can run at different relative speeds and their start points can be de-synchronized, so to say.
The fun feature of Psychodrumma is, that it can play by itself, all of pad’s settings can be randomized on user input, gradually or periodically. You can just tune settings, let it play and observe evolving waves of randomness.
The virtual instrument library for Kontakt includes 200 wav files (24bit/44kHz), and is available to download at no charge.
