Heavyocity has partnered with Icebreaker Audio to release BitRate II, a major update to the BitRate semi-modular 8-bit drum machine for Reaktor.

BitRate II features

  • 5 drum slots into which you can load any one of 4 sound engines.

  • The ability to sample from the audio input into a custom-built sample engine.
  • A built-in sequencer with 2 modulation sequences per drum.

  • EQ, Compressor, and Speaker Simulator master effects.

MonoBoy features

  • 3 sound generator modes, including a unique DM sampler.
  • Easy-to-use arpeggiator and Voice Controls
  • 2 Modulation sequences.
