Fred Anton Corvest has announced a major update to the FAC Drumkit app for iOS, bringing many new features and improvements to the 16-voice drum synthesizer and stereo sample player.

Version 2.0 introduces a new responsive user interface, mute groups, additional randomization options, improved presets management, and more.

Everyone agrees that the drums are a very important key element of almost every genre out there, they are the foundation of a song. We are all fans of acoustic drums and drum machines, they each have different characters and strengths. FAC Drumkit combines both worlds, samples and synthesis, in order to provide new exciting and unique sounds. As a rule of thumb, the synthesizer section brings the body of the sound, and the sampler the unique character. Both parts are layered together and contain essential parameters to ensure they won’t clash and will sit well together.

  • New full responsive UI.
  • Addition of mute group.
  • Randomization for OSC, SMP and Envelopes.
