Softube has announced the release of Heartbeat, a drum synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Classic drum synthesis is back with a vengeance! Heartbeat is an innovative software drum synth with a familiar, yet unique, sound character.

Heartbeat features

  • Eight channels of drum sounds, mostly based on modeled analog synthesis.
  • Mixer with volume, EQ, effect sends and panning for each channel.
  • Four channel Auto Layer Machine for layering sounds or triggering beat patterns.
  • Chaos slider adds randomness to the behavior of Auto Layer Machine.
  • Adapted versions of TSAR-1 Reverb and Valley People Dyna-mite included, as well as Filter Echo and output saturation.
  • No iLok USB dongle required.

Softube sets pulses racing with innovative software drum synth in major musical move

Swedish high-end software developer Softube set pulses racing when showcasing Heartbeat — its innovative software drum synth with comfortably familiar, yet special sound characteristics — at Musikmesse 2015, April 15-18 in Frankfurt, Germany…

Come its scheduled summertime release date, however, Heartbeat is likely to cause severe palpitations! Why? Well, by bringing back classic drum synthesis with a vengeance, Heartbeat harkens back to yesteryear’s much-loved modeled analog synthesis approach, but brings a wealth of forward-thinking features and flexibility to bare on what could well be the ultimate dream drum synth software solution suited to satisfying (almost) anyone’s beat-making needs! Now if that still sounds like a tall order… read on!

So what makes Heartbeat so special? Well, while it draws its inspiration from the best Eighties-vintage analog drum machines, it does not emulate any existing drum machine. The superlative sound beating at its rhythmical heart mostly originates from Softube’s proprietary analog-modeled synthesis engines, engineered to drive the resulting rhythms to wherever the user wishes to take them.

The core consists of eight individual instrument channels. Here Heartbeat users will find two different bass drum channels (BASS DRUM 1 and BASS DRUM 2) — perfect for producing punchy, deep kicks, but also perfectly capable of creating snappy and hard-hitting woody textures. Tonal adjustments abound, with several dedicated controls for both BASS DRUM 1 (DECAY, ATTACK, ATTACK TYPE, PITCH, BEND, and HARMONICS) and BASS DRUM 2 (DECAY, ATTACK, PITCH, and HARMONICS) positioned directly above their associated channels. The two dedicated snare drum channels (SNARE/RIM SHOT and SNARE/CLAP) have several identical parameters associated with each of them — WAVE SYNTH sliders, plus two TYPE, PITCH, and DECAY controls — to achieve anything from edgy rimshots, soft and whispery snare rolls, to machine-like claps. Correspondingly, those same flexible parameters are also available for the adjacent HIHATS channel. Time to applaud those proprietary analog-modeled synthesis engines, perhaps? Feel free to rev them to your beat-making heart’s content! Continuing our eastward instrument channel journey, the two percussion channels (PERC 1 and PERC 2) are identical, and can be used to model Eighties-style toms to cowbells and (almost) anything in- between, thanks to their flexible controls — simply select the MODE (from SINGLE, DUAL, FM.
