Modal CRAFTrhythm Drum Sampler
The Modal CRAFTrhythm Sampler is the latest addition to the Modal Electronics family. Available exclusively to European Gear4music customers, the Modal CRAFTrhythm drum machine takes DIY modular music to an entirely new level of creativity.

Following from their wildly popular Modal CRAFTsynth , Modal Electronics have now developed a sample-based drum machine complete with 64 sample slots, 8 discrete channels, and a 15 MB memory. Much like the CRAFTsynth before it, the CRAFTrhythm conscribes to a DIY manufacture. Featuring various snap on components, the Modal CRAFTrhythm can be assembled without using solder in approximately ten minutes.

With a sample rate of 44.1 kHz, the CRAFTrhythm can express exceptional quality audio whilst enacting a multi-voiced polyphony. Each of the sampler's tracks feature a mixer, sample select, tune control, 3 distinct pitch modes, a low pass resonant filter and 3 envelopes for amplitude, filter, and pitch.

Enter your own samples and edit them for complete customization. With a transpose pitch feature and shift mode, the Modal CRAFTrhythm drum sampler emphasises a focus upon experimentation. Thanks to the intuitive and forward thinking technology developed by Modal Electronics you can now drag and drop your sounds into the application window, allowing for a faster and more efficient workflow. From here you can then load and audition the sample at your own discretion. Change your drum patterns and kits on the fly for a whole new dimension of creative dictation. Built to cater specifically to live performance, the app instantaneously acknowledges any change or alterations to the CRAFTrhythm drum sample parameters, making on-the-go composition that bit more intuitive. With a selection of pre-installed fills, the Modal Rhythm allows you to start making music immediately after the unit's construction.

Able to be used for Android, iPhone or Windows PC, the CRAFTrhythm drum machine can be used with an entire range of devices, making it universally accessible to a wide spectrum of players.
