Product Ref: 100876
The CRAFTrhythm Drum Sampler comes dis-assembled, and can be built within 10 minutes (without the need for solder). This is the ideal introduction for the synth-building world, giving you a taste of setting up your own piece of kit. Building it requires no previous knowledge or special tools, the parts will slot into one another for a quick and easy build. Once built, the CRAFTrhythm offers 8-track of drum/percussion sampling, it also features a dedicated 16-step sequencer. The drum sampler offers the ability to store up to 64 16-bit mono samples, with sample rates ranging up to 441.kHz. You can also incorporate your own samples using the CraftApp for added versatility.
The built-in 16-step sequencer allows you to create patterns, rhythms and percussive sequences on the fly. The sequencer is ideal for creating drum loops and experimenting with sequenced sounds, also making it ideal for live performances. Every track of the drum sample also features a low-pass resonant filter, as well as a dedicated Attack-Hold-Decay envelope. The filter per track design allows you to get in-depth when it comes to affecting your sounds. There are also Amplitude envelopes on every track, allowing you to differentiate the volume levels between differing sounds such as hi-hats and snares. Each track also features Tune control with 3 varying pitch modes including: Speed, Stretch and Shift.
As well as being able to store your own mono samples, the CRAFTrhythm also allows you to save and recall up to 8 kits, with per track parameters allowing you to store sonic changes. The kit comes with a range of pre-installed sounds and kits, taken from previous Modal units. The premium-grade sounds are ideal for creating a range of styles and sounds of percussion. The sampler also features global tempo and tap tempo functionality, with step division ranging from semi-quavers to quarter notes. One of the most unique features is the pattern groove control, which can be used to add swing/shuffle, providing you with 8 preset grooves.
The Modal CRAFTsynth Monophonic Synthesizer Kit allows you to build up the synthesizer from 5 separate boards, with its simple yet effective design making it easy to assemble. The assembly process requires no soldering, tools or specialist knowledge, everything you need comes straight out of the box and allows you to slot the pieces together with ease. You can assemble the synthesizer within 10 minutes, giving you a hands-on experience when it comes to building your synth.
The CRAFTsynth features 2 oscillators per voice with a range of controls for in-depth manipulation such as detune and fine detune for OSC 2 as well as a selection of different waveforms including: Sine, Tri, Saw PWM, Noise and FM (OSC2 modulates pitch of OSC1). This versatile range of controls allows you to sculpt your own synth sounds with ease. The LFO features six destinations in total including: VCA amplitude, filter cutoff, FM amount, OSC mix, PWM amount and pitch/frequency. This wide range of parameters allows you to create your own sounds with extreme precision, giving you in-depth control over every part of the sound.
The Modal CRAFTsynth features four LFO wave forms in total, with each LFO being invertible for added versatility. The LFO wave forms are as follows; Sine, Tri, Saw, Square. This standard range of LFOs allows you to create everything from atmospheric pads to in-your-face leads and more. The resonant low pass filter can become state variable when using the CRAFTapp (available end of 2016). The CRAFTapp that comes included with the synthesizer allows you to get in-depth with your synthesis, giving you the ability to control custom enveloped, low pass filters and more.
