Heavyocity releases BitRate II & MonoBoy for Reaktor

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

Heavyocity BitRate II

BitRate II uses multiple methods of retro digital synthesis and sampling to produce charismatic and nostalgic drum sounds. The included sound engines cover chipsounds, FM synthesis, lofi sampling, and glitchy circuit bending.

On top of these unique sound engines, BitRate II also offers a 5-track mixer and a master fx section that includes an analogue modelled EQ, bus compressor, and speaker simulator for added lo-fi effect.

The drums can be triggered via MIDI or from the internal sequencer. The sequencer provides two modulation sequences per drum, which can be routed to virtually any combination of sound parameters in any amount.

BitRate II also comes bundled with the MonoBoy instrument, a melodic counterpart for BitRate II. MonoBoy uses similar sound engines, but in an interface more suited to melodic playing.

The BitRate II Bundle ships with a total of 140 preset snapshots including a variety of sounds from kits and beats to synths and samples.

BitRate II features

  • 5 drum slots into which you can load any one of 4 sound engines.
  • 4 lo-fi digital sound engines: Chip, FM, Sampler, Glitch.
  • The ability to sample from the audio input into a custom-built sample engine.
  • A built-in sequencer with 2 modulation sequences per drum.
  • Per-track sequence length, allowing for complex poly-rhythms.
  • 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.
  • A master FX section that includes the one-of-a-kind Bit Delay effect.

The BitRate II & MonoBoy bundle is available for purchase for an introductory price of $29 USD for the first two weeks (regular $49 USD). During this period, original BitRate owners can buy BitRate II for $19 USD.

Heavyocity releases Master Sessions: Ethnic Drum Ensembles

Heavyocity Media has launched Master Sessions: Ethnic Drum Ensembles, the second product in a new line of pristine virtual instruments.

Heavyocity Master Sessions: Ethnic Drum Ensembles

Created by New York City’s renowned sound design team, the Master Sessions virtual instrument line focuses on specific instruments and ensembles for professional composers.

As a successor to Heavyocity’s award-winning virtual instruments: DAMAGE, The AEON Collection, DM-307: Modern Groove Designer, and the Evolve Series, Master Sessions: Ethnic Drum Ensembles answers the call of pro-composers looking for expressive ethnic drum ensemble kits and hybrid looped percussion.

The Heavyocity team carefully sought out a unique collection of ethnic drums (taikos, daikos, bongos, congas, frame drums, djembes, dumbeks, bodhrans, darbukas, batas, cajons, and surdos) that were performed in ensemble fashion. The performances were then mastered to deliver maximum impact, all in an easy to use interface.

Heavyocity’s Master Sessions: Ethnic Drum Ensembles Collection includes 6 unique ensembles in 28 kit presets, 466 loop presets and 375+ tempo-synced loops organized into straight and triplet rhythms. The loops, provided in menu and single loop presets, allow users to easily mix and match stems seamlessly to create complex percussion beds.

Master Sessions: Ethnic Drum Ensembles is offered as three separate products: 1. Ethnic Drum Ensembles – Kits, 2. Ethnic Drum Ensembles – Loops and 3. Ethnic Drum Ensembles Collection (bundle containing both Kits and Loops).
The included content is complemented by an advanced yet highly intuitive user interface featuring the Stage (Kits and Collection only), advanced Trigger FXTM and Heavyocity’s signature PunishTM knob. With Loop Mutator™ technology (Loops and Collection only) users can sequence, re-compose and manipulate loops in new and exciting ways.

Powered by Native Instruments Kontakt 5.3 Full software version, Master Sessions: Ensemble Drums offers all playback and sound shaping functionality through the Full Kontakt 5 version. *Kontakt 5 Player will only allow use of product in demo mode.

The Ethnic Drum Ensembles Collection is available for purchase for $149 USD. A two-week introductory offer is available to existing users of Heavyocity and Heavyocity/Native Instruments products (Master Sessions: Ensemble Drums, AEON, DM-307, The Evolve and Mutations series, Damage, and Komplete Ultimate 8, 9, or 10) for $119 USD.

The Ethnic Drum Ensembles Kits and Loops packs will be available separately for $89 USD.
