Tracktion Corporation has announced the release of a new kick drum plugin from Dawesome and renowned techno producer Björn Torwellen.

Sinee and Dawesome is a collaboration between mathematician and AI veteran Peter V (Aka Dawesome) and German techno star Björn Torwellen. Peter V is the creator of the powerful sound engine Abyss, a synthesizer with a fresh and unique approach to music production. The multi-talented artist, DJ and music producer Björn Torwellen said of Chop Suey: ‘This plugin is the result of what I’ve learned about kick drum design over 20 years’.

Made by music makers, for music makers Chop Suey is a sound design power house which offers everything needed to build complex, hard-hitting bass drums for House, Techno, Hip Hop and all other styles of dance music.

All music makers know a kick drum is one of the most essential elements of beat driven music and getting it to work well with the bass is fundamental to a successful track. Musicians are always looking for the perfect kick, one that combines a nice transient with a cool punch and a boomy tail.

Most applications layer sound. This rarely works for kicks, resulting in a weak, muddy mess. The versatile Chop Suey plugin allows users to sequence rather than layer elements thus removing any phasing issues, leaving a kick sound which has a crisp transient, punchy body and thundering end.

Chop Suey is a visual precision tool that allows users to finely edit each element of the sound, shaping individual parts without affecting or weakening the others. The plugin workflow has been designed to respond quickly to parameter variations meaning it can react rapidly to changes in resonance consequently minimizing zipper noises or artefacts.

Available for Windows and Mac in VST3 and AU plugin formats, Chop Suey is on sale the the launch price of $58 USD until May 22nd, 2022 (regular $89 USD).
