Sonic Academy has released Kick, a drum synthesizer instrument in collaboration with DJ and producer Nicky Romero.
Kick is kick drum synthesizer that allows a user to create kick drums and tune them to their tracks. It combines a synthesised sub oscillator and sampled clicks to create a wide variety of kick drums, percussive and bass sounds. With Pitch, Amp and Click envelope editors, drive, pitch control and the Nicky Romero designed distortion section, there is plenty to tweak.
With over 150 factory presets and 40 exclusive Nicky Romero presets a user can access a Protocol sound right out of the box. In addition Kick comes bundled with 32 Nicky Romero clicks lifted straight from his productions. Other features include on board EQ, sub drive, distortion section and a internal master limiter allowing the user to drive the kicks without worrying about their kick channel.
Kick is available to purchase for £24.95 GBP/$39.95 USD/€29.95 EUR. Sonic Academy subscribers can purchase at 10% discount.
