Hybrid Convolution Rhythm Engine
TRUE HYBRID DRUMS
Konstruktor is a hybrid drum designer and kit builder that blends acoustic sound sources with synthesized waveforms. Together with both fully acoustic and fully synthetic elements, this kit builder creates truly hybrid drums with a unique, fresh new sound.
Model each kit component with its own convolution plugin: almost 400 custom impulses that color, shape, distort, and augment the drum samples. Thicken kick drums, smear and widen snares, turn hi-hats into mini rhythm engines. Glitchbomb, Drumrust, Echoglitz, Boomscope
ROBOT OR HUMAN?
Control the amount of randomization that is applied to velocity and quantization—separately for each kit component. Make those snares and hi-hats extra trashy. And with 6 round-robin layers for every articulation, even fully synthetic kits can find a new groove. Let those kits run loose.
Adjustments to tuning, sample start points, decay envelopes, and sample width can also be used to control how different convolution impulses color an instrument. Subtle tuning changes, in particular, will often reveal new and unexpected frequency effects that
can help to shape a whole kit.
Each of the 7 kit components has three dedicated, independently selectable lowpass, bandpass, and highpass filters, each with dedicated cutoff and resonance knobs for on-the-fly switching. Filtering offers another way to control how the convolution impulse colors the sound.
A powerful kit-building tool, this feature preserves the kit’s performance controls and offers three randomization modes: sample banks only, convo choices only, or both. With two temporary memory slots for comparing new combos, tailor settings then save a snapshot of your new kit.
