AraldFX has released DKS, a professional drums synthesis solution.
DKS was born after three years of studying the classic analogue drum machines, which were able to produce convincing drums sounds by simple electronic means. By joining the “classical” oscillator-based electronics drum synthesis approach with simple FM synthesis, physical modeling of the drum shell, a powerful set of effects, and a beautiful user interface, DKS is a unique, easy-to-use, and incredibly versatile drums synthesizer.
The built-in intelligent randomizers can give new life to your drums tracks. You can generate totally new sounds with a mouse click and hear them while your song is playing. This synthesizer can accurately emulate many of the classic electronic drum machine sounds, but through its extra FM and the physical drum shell modeling can go much further, even giving an interesting acoustic touch to synthesized sounds.
DKS features 8 independent and fully programmable drum generators, a complete and powerful mixer with built-in effects and filters, and three master busses with an integrated and complete effects section.
- 8 polyphonic generators with a powerful sound
- Each generator has: 3 oscillators, FM, Distortion, Bit Reduction, Physical Modeled Shell, Multi-Filter, 2 Modulation controls and intelligent randomizer with customizable target
- Full 8 Channel Mixer
- Each Mixer Channel has 2 sends (pre and post), pan, mute, solo and VU meter
- 3 Stereo out busses (1 stereo in the AU version)
- Each bus with its own Stereo Multi-tap Delay, Compressor and Ambient FX
- Whole Kit intelligent randomizer
- MIDI Learn for each parameter
- Friendly Presets Management
- 3 skins included
DKS is available for the PC/VST, MAC/VST (UB) and MAC/AU (UB).
Until the 15th of February 2007 DKS can be purchased at a special introductory price of $81.00. The full price after that date will be $135.00 USD.
