Developer Jakob Penca has introduced SDS Drop for OS X – a utility that’s designed to make sample transfers to your Elektron Analog Rytm drum machine ‘a breeze’.
To use, you drag & drop your files onto the drum pads, and the app takes care of the rest. Samples are loaded into the current Rytm project and assigned to your current Kit, ready to play.
Here’s a short video demo by the developer:
Core-Audio compatible media files are converted to 48kHz 16bit PCM audio, the native format for the Rytm. The high-quality conversion is handled by the Core-Audio framework.
You can even use video files – SDS Drop will extract the audio.
Any other kinds of file are interpreted as 22kHz 8bit PCM audio.
SDS Drop is available for US $9.99 in the App Store.
If you’ve used SDS Drop, leave a comment and share your thoughts on it!
