Patchpool has released Tremendous Beatz, a soundset for the Tremor drum synthesizer by FXpansion, containing 50 presets with at least 8 patterns and pattern variations per preset.
All instruments created in the synth engines are available individually in instrument folders so that the user can import them into other presets, kits and projects.
Tremor’s most versatile modulation capabilities like Graphs, Envelopes, LFOs and Macros are used in all presets creating vivid and interesting rhythms, deep grooves, ambient beats, futuristic music and otherworldly textures usable for a wide variety of musical styles.
Besides 27 presets with even metered grooves in the TB Even Beatz-folder there are 16 presets with odd grooves which have odd time signatures like 5/8 – 6/8 – 7/8 – 9/8 – 12/8 – 13/8 – 3/4 – 5/4 – 6/4, as rhythms and grooves in 4/4 only represent one aspect of today’s music production. Triplet based 4/4 Beats are also to be found in the TB Odd Beatz-folder. In the TB Scapes-folder you will find 7 intriguing soundscapes evolving over time with lots of randomization going on, something one would not associate with a “Drum Machine”.
Also there are 50 Kits available which were created for the individual presets, some of them have one or two empty slots. You can view/download the PDF for Warped Strings with more details, the licence agreement and the patch list including playing tips and description for each patch here.
