Tweaker’s Joy

Besides the control over volume and frying pan from within the Channel ‘strip’, iDrum also supplies a fundamental collection of non-destructive sound-shaping devices to more dressmaker examples to your liking. A click of the ‘i’ switch on the main screen button reveals a hitherto hidden sliding panel with controls for Pitch and also Decay, plus low-pass as well as high-pass filters which offer some EQ abilities. These controls are on sliders, nonetheless, and adjustments need to be done by ear, as there’s no mathematical calibration of the worths. You could also grungify your examples by changing the bit depth, with an option of 32-bit, 12-bit, eight-bit and also four-bit settings. While iDrum’s default sounds are all one-shot examples, of course the whole appeal of the program is that you could designate any kind of WAV or AIFF data you prefer to any kind of network (approximately an optimum of 2MB per file each channel). And that undoubtedly that could consist of rhythm loopholes. iDrum’s ‘Fit’ button instantaneously alters the playback speed of the loop so its length matches the bar at the current tempo. At this rate, it’s excessive to anticipate that iDrum may apply some brilliant beat-slicing or elastic sound control, so the pitch of the loop does increase or down appropriately. Yet it functions penalty, so that’s complaining?

One final control on this panel, again obtained from equipment drum equipments, is the ability to appoint noises to a couple of choke teams. This is generally made use of making hi-hats sound even more reasonable by making sure that the long open hi-hat noises are removed by a closed hi-hat sound. But as a matter of fact it could be utilized creatively for gated rhythmic effects, specifically if you use a sample of silence to cut off longer sounds.
