New Drum Machine App, PulseCode, Inspired By 80’s Lo-Fi Drum Machines

Psychic Modulation has introduced PulseCode, a PCM Drum Machine that pays tribute to the lo-fi drum machine sounds from the late 1980s.

The sounds supplied with PulseCode have been resampled in 12 and 13-bit with vintage gear to stay true to the era. Each sound includes its own sampled 13-bit reverb layer, recorded from a vintage unit from the same time period.

Key Features:

  • 64-step Pattern Sequencer with lane for each drum
  • Unique Pattern Offsets for creating variations to your patterns
  • Multi-parameter Accents for each step
  • Individual Speed and Length for each Sequence Lane (allows polyrhythms)
  • Adjustable Flams per step
  • Flow: controls the movement and rythmic flow of each sequence lane
  • Fracture: momentary buildups and breakdowns using snap-back controls
  • Drum Mixer with Multiple Outputs for each drum
  • Drum Fill Arpeggiator for automatic rolls, fills and more
  • Pitchbender & Modwheel integration of Fracture and Flow
  • Tight sync to Host tempo and position
  • MIDI Learn and automation of most parameters

  1. Drum mixer with separate outputs for wach drum? Does this mean separate tracks in my DAW? Or is it always summed to a stereo pair? Hopefully the former.
