Sample Logic And Soundiron Reveal M.A.P, The Next Step In Beat-Making
Hollin Jones on Tue, May 14th 0 comments
With 4 sound cores, over 6000 hand crafted sounds and presets and almost 14000 samples, Modern Animated Percussion could be the ultimate beat-making instrument.

Sample Logic & Soundiron have teamed up and are proud to introduce the world’s most modern drum machine: Modern Animated Percussion. MAP redefines everything you know about percussion and rhythms. Built for the full Kontakt sample player, MAP contains over 6,000 sounds and instrument presets. The intuitive design and programming of every preset delivers infinite options for sound sculpting. Packed with creative presets, the effortless user interface makes it easy to conjure rhythmic timbres and tones. It requires the full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher.

BLURRING THE LINE BETWEEN PERCUSSION & RHYTHM

MAP gives you the production quality of a polished audio loop alongside the dynamic flexibility of a drum machine. Change any aspect of the sound with infinite sonic results. How is this possible? The secret is in the infrastructure; even though each preset might sound like a perfectly produced rhythmic audio loop, it is much more, as there are no loops in this product. In the driver’s seat is a supercharged MIDI based drum machine, triggering samples with the elasticity of an arpeggiator.

FEATURES

  • One of a kind collaboration between SAMPLE LOGIC & SOUNDIRON
  • 6,000+ hand crafted sounds & instrument presets
  • 13,800+ samples weighing at 5+GB (samples are delivered at 44.1kHz / 24-bit)

  • Proprietary 4-core Step Animator
  • Hot-swappable dynamic FX engine
  • Entirely “randomizable” performance engine for instant and infinite inspiration

FROM SAMPLE TO RHYTHM

Equipped with over 4,000 unique percussive audio samples and nearly 2,000 presets, MAP has been meticulously programmed around Sample Logic’s proprietary 4-core engine. Each instrument preset contains 4 sound cores, each powered by an independent drum machine running in tandem to trigger 4 different sounds at once. This generates perfectly produced and polished loop-like results, but with far more flexibility than simple sampled audio loops. The 4-core engine allows you to change any aspect of any sound at any time, maximizing creativity.

Each core has two main components: a Step Animator (MIDI step pattern engine) and a dynamic FX engine. These engines are intelligently designed for dynamic control and customization, with a visual language that’s easy to understand and tweak. Fire up all 4 cores by playing middle C on your MIDI controller - the Step Animator does the rest. For single core playback, use keys D,E,F, or G which will trigger on separate clocks. Use this to deconstruct each multi- core preset and make custom playback layers in creative ways.

SOURCE SOUNDS

Sample Logic and Soundiron have teamed up to deliver a vast collection of percussive hit samples. From world percussion to EDM kits, the creative team truly set out to cover the entire map of percussive sounds. We scoured the globe to sample everything from massive impacts & cinematic transitions to traditionally sampled toms & hand percussion... and everything in between. MAP truly delivers the most diverse collection of percussive sources assembled into one virtual instrument.

Price: Intro $249.99, regular price $349.99
