Drum Rack device
32 Pads for direct control
Most of the Session Drums presets come with a maximum of 32 pads. Use a compact drumkit with 16 drum pads in Push’s Loop Selector and 16 Velocities layouts, or go to the 64 Pads layout to use all of the pads for additional snare, hihat, toms, rides, cymbals and percussion hits.
Control the energy of the drummer with ease
This MIDI Effect Rack offers 8 Macro knobs which make it possible to easily control velocity values of incoming MIDI notes. Use the “Main Intensity” knob to control the entire drumkit at once, or use the 7 other knobs to control each of the kit pieces separately. Turn down a knob to get softer drum sounds, or turn it up for them to intensify.
Humanise where necessary
Similar to Intensity Control, this MIDI Effect Rack has 8 Macro knobs that offer control over the randomness that’s applied to velocity values of incoming MIDI notes. The higher the value on the knob, the more random the velocity output becomes, resulting in samples with different intensities being triggered.
Ghost Note Generator *
Add spontaneous ghost notes
The Ghost Note Generator creates ghost notes at random in a controlled environment. Use the length of MIDI notes to determine which notes may receive additional ghost notes for the duration of the initial note, and use the Chain Mute buttons on the right to determine which kit pieces are allowed to produce ghost notes in general. The Macro knobs control the max velocity output and disperse generated ghost notes.
Comprehensible and clear
Contrary to the default presets, SD Suite presets have coloured Mixer channels, Push pads, and three Send/Return chains.
SD Suite comes with a separate .adg file for the MIDI devices, and three folders with presets for the Club, Multimic and Studio packs.
Combine SD Suite’s MIDI devices with any of the improved Drum Rack presets by dragging the desired combination onto a MIDI channel.
An included demo project shows examples of a drumkit in combination with the SD Suite MIDI devices to get a feel for how they work.
The same demo project contains a second channel with a MIDI clip that demonstrates how to randomise ghosts notes through automation, without the use of Max for Live*.
