Point Blank has released a free Kick Drum Designer for Max for Live, designed by its expert tutor, Daniel Herbert.
This is the latest Max for Live device from Point Blank which currently is only compatible with Live 9.
The kick drum designer is based on some of the techniques we cover in the Ableton Sound design course when looking at Operator, and synthesises bass drums by using a series of envelopes to modulate the pitch and amplitude of basic waveforms.
The device features an integrated preset system and a morphing slider which allows you to morph between the different presets for some interesting sonic potential. There’s also a resonant filter to further help sculpt the sound and add variation.
The Kick Drum Designer is a free download (requires Max for Live plugin in Live 9).
