12 / Synthesis Algorithms

DrumSpillage is a model based drum synthesizer plugin for Mac OS X featuring 12 exclusive drum models capable of synthesizing a diverse range of electronic percussion sounds.

The models implement a variety of synthesis techniques including classic analog, physical modelling and FM synthesis. More info about the new features in V2 can be found here on our blog.

Sound Design

DrumSpillage 2 gives you everything you need to sculpt original drum sounds that fit perfectly with your tracks. Each drum model has been carefully designed and tuned to create a specific type of drum sound, for example, kick, hi-hat and snare. The models offer extensive editing potential to create unique drum sounds that defy standard classification. The new unified interface in V2 makes it easier than ever to get the right drum sounds into your music. Kick drums may be tuned to specific MIDI notes and pads can be played across the entire keyboard. 16 individual outputs allow you to manipulate sounds further in your sequencer or DAW.

 

Integrated Effects

DrumSpillage 2 features a dedicated distortion unit, multi-mode filter, resonator and frequency shifter unit on every pad. Distortions range from analog style saturation to all out digital destruction. The multi-mode filter features a new analog modelled low pass along with high pass, band pass and band reject filters allowing you to sculpt the top and low end to perfection. A 3-band resonator unit provides simple spatialisation effects along with classic comb filtering that adds an extra dimension to your sound design. Finally the frequency shifter offers subtle shifting modulations or more extreme sound mangling effects.

 
 

Modulation

In DrumSpillage 2 we’ve significantly expanded the modulation capabilities. With new LFO waveforms and extra envelope sources your drum sounds are now even more dynamic. In addition LFOs feature a cross-modulation feature allowing LFOs and envelopes to modulate the LFO frequency. Great for evolving and complex modulations. Almost every control in DrumSpillage 2 can now be controlled via MIDI velocity delivering extremely expressive rhythmic sequences.

 

High Resolution 64-bit DSP

DrumSpillage 2 is based upon a high resolution 64-bit DSP engine. The extra resolution from 64-bit DSP brings a smoother more detailed sound with deep bass, snappy envelopes, fluid modulations, precision filtering and punchy low end. Anti aliasing oscillators in the hi-hats, cymbals and bass drums keep the top end clean and the low end solid.

 

"DrumSpillage 2 is a percussion powerhouse. Supremely versatile and sonically first class."
