Classic Drum Synthesiser - Back with a vengence - 38% OFF

Heartbeat is an innovative software drum synth with a familiar, yet unique, sound character. A world class effects section is included, as well as the innovative Auto Layer Machine which will take your beats to unexpected places. Because Heartbeat is more than a machine, it´s a living thing with a mind of its own.

SUMMARY OF FEATURES

  • 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.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

While Heartbeat draws inspiration from the best analog drum synths from the 1980s, it does not emulate any existing drum machine. The sound mostly originates from Softube´s own modeled analog synthesis, which has been augmented with carefully selected waveforms.

The core of Heartbeat consists of the eight instrument channels. You will find two different bass drum channels, which can be as punchy and deep as you want them, but are also perfectly capable of producing snappy and hard hitting woody textures. The two dedicated snare drum channels have six parameters each which allows you to achieve anything from edgy rimshots, soft and whispery snare rolls to machine-like claps.

The percussion channels are identical and can be used to model anything from 80s style synthetic toms to cowbells and noise drops. And just like the other channels, the hihat and cymbal channels offer flexible synthesis engines—tweak to your heart´s desire!

The effects

In order to make Heartbeat your one stop shop for beat programming, we added a fully featured effects section. It includes slightly adapted versions of our beloved model of Valley People Dyna-mite and one of our top sellers of all time, the TSAR-1 Reverb. The Dyna-mite is a dynamic shaping Swiss army knife with a serious attitude. Limiting, compression, gating, sidechained ducking—Dyna-mite handles it all. And TSAR-1 is simply the most gorgeous plug-in reverb ever created.

The all new Filter Echo is a filtered delay effect with adjustable Cut Off and Resonance parameters. And finally, the output saturation can go from juicy to gritty and is not taken from any existing Softube product.

Each of the eight channels has a dedicated mixer channel with controls for volume, pan, ping-pong (auto panning), EQ (adapted specifically for each instrument) and send levels to the reverb and delay effects.

A mind of its own

Heartbeat is not only about sound, it´s also about inspiration and interaction. This is where the innovative Auto Layer Machine comes in. The Auto Layer Machine has four channels that can each be used to layer sounds or trigger a chain of events. This can be used to create new sound textures or create automatic fill patterns in up to four steps.

If things still get too predictable, move the Chaos sliders to the right—these add an element of randomness, ranging from subtle variations to massive trigger-riot mayhem!

Flexible global velocity parameter knobs for volume, pitch, attack and decay can make Heartbeat responsive to velocity changes. Time Gate shortens the overall decay to create a stuttery and stiff machine sound.

No iLok USB dongle required

A hardware USB iLok dongle is optional for the copy protection of Heartbeat. Heartbeat can also be used with iLok´s new machine based license.

Tweak using Native Instruments hardware

Heartbeat supports Native Instrument´s Native Kontrol Standard. This means you can use it with Komplete Kontrol keyboards and Maschine units and get the same intuitive hands-on control of Heartbeat´s functions as with any of Native Instruments´ own products—all automatically laid out on the hardware´s knobs, buttons and keys, and with no additional setting up needed.

Press Reviews

"As an avid drum machine lover and collector I´m typically skeptical of something that claims to emulate vintage rhythm machines. I must say Heartbeat is stunning, less emulation and more making the vintage modern. I´ve been using it on all my new score projects. It´s killer!" - BT a k a Brian Transeau, American music producer, composer, technologist, audio technician, multi-instrumentalist

"Heartbeat is powerful, endlessly entertaining, and sounds truly thunderous." - Computer Music, Magazine

"Definitely a must-have! The sound is huge, and you have endless possibilities even though the controls are few and simple." - Mixmag, The world´s biggest dance music and club culture magazine

"Heartbeat is like a “best of” mix of several vintage drum machines." - Rating 92% from bedroomproducersblog.com
