TheDrumSource drum machine plugin updated to v1.0

TheDrumSource

Ola Wistedt has announced the release of TheDrumSource v1.0, a sample based drum machine instrument for Windows.

It has a sequencer and a built in sample browser. It looks and “feels” like a classic (x0x) hardware drum machine. TheDrumSource is designed with the purpose to be very simple and easy to work with even if you are used to work with hardware drum machines or not.

Changes in TheDrumSource v1.0

  • Resizeable GUI.
  • Supports more sample formats: Microsoft (WAV), SGI/Apple (AIFF/AIFC), Sun/DEC/NeXT (AU/SND), Headerless (RAW), Paris Audio File (PAF), Commodore Amiga (IFF/SVX), Sphere Nist (WAV), IRCAM (SF), Creative (VOC), Sound forge (W64), GNU Octave 2.0 (MAT4), GNU Octave 2.1 (MAT5), Portable Voice Format (PVF), Fasttracker 2 (XI), HMM Tool Kit (HTK), Apple (CAF), Sound Designer II (SD2, Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC), Ogg/Vorbis.

  • Added a master volume control knob.
  • Added volume knobs for every channel.
  • Added play buttons on each channel to play the drum manually.
  • You can put the sound from all drums on the first stereo channel (downmix to stereo). This option is found In the global menu (see above). Note that this is a shortcut to do quick tests and is not for permanent use because each samples volume and balance must be controlled in the host mixer.
  • The sample browser now has a scrollbar and the browser shows files sorting from left to right then down (the old way was left, down then right).
  • The sequencer now has LEDs that show current 16th playing.

TheDrumSource 1.0 RC1 released, virtual drum machine instrument

Ola Wistedt and Mats Lindfors have released version 1.0 (release candidate 1) of TheDrumSource, a sample based drum machine instrument for Windows.

TheDrumSource

It has a sequencer and a built in sample browser. It looks and “feels” like a classic (x0x) hardware drum machine.

TheDrumSource is designed with the purpose to be very simple and easy to work with even if you are used to work with hardware drum machines or not. The built in sample browser in TheDrumsource makes it very easy to navigate through your samples. The sequencer can be running when looking for new samples. You will hear the sample the moment you selects it. There is also a quick button to select the previous and next sample in the same directory as the current selected sample. TheDrumsource has a very short time to get started on making your beats.

TheDrumSource features

  • Built in sample browser suited for a easy workflow when working with samples. And almost all of TheDrumSource’s functions is still available while browsing.
  • Built in sequencer that has 24 sequences for your patterns. The patterns are of the 16-step bar type
  • Support for many sample formats (including 24 bit samples): WAV, AIFF, AIFC, AU, SND, RAW, PAF, IFF, SVX, SF, VOC, W64, MAT4, MAT5, PVF, XI, HTK, CAF, SD2, FLAC, OGG.
  • A GUI that can be resized to suit you screen.
  • A quick button to change the next and previous sample in current directory of the selected sample.
  • A stereo output channel for each drum. And a mode to mix down all channels temporary into one stereo channel for quick tests to get you up and running a little bit faster on some hosts.
  • The SYNC mode. The sequencer is synced by the host (DAW) and you control which of the 24 track to be played with MIDI (octave 2 and 3).
  • The MIDI mode. The samples can be played through midi keyboard (octave 1) with the sequencer turned off.
  • The RUN mode. Lets you play around with the TheDrumsource sequencer when your host (DAW) is not running.
  • Clean interface so you don’t get distracted in your creative work. TheDrumsource uses context menus to make this possible.

TheDrumSource is available to download as a free VST instrument plug-in for Windows.
