Heavyocity, the New York developer who brought us the incredible Aeon, has announced DM-307 - an innovative new virtual instrument with a highly stylised collection of modular synth drums, live percussion and processed classic analog drum machines that give you all you need to quickly and easily create production-ready grooves and beats in a variety of music styles.
What is DM-307?
Heavyocity's DM-307 contains over 3,600 unique sounds and loops housed in 1400+ presets of drums, percussion, sound design elements, and loops. The 1200+ beat-sliced loops are organised by style and can be mixed and matched seamlessly to create complex layered beats and percussion beds.
In addition to the kits and loops, DM-307 showcases 250+ signature multis, allowing users to tweak beats created by Heavyocity and some of today's top DJ/Producers: Kiserdisco, Martin Eyerer, Mendo, Pirupa and Uner; and notable cinematic composers: Joe Trapanese, Jason Graves and Kevin Riepl.
This new virtual instrument introduces innovative ways to quickly and easily create production-ready grooves and beats in a variety of contemporary musical styles; including electronic, hip hop, industrial, ethnic and cinematic.
DM-307 was developed through experimental recording, sound design, and synthesis techniques, resulting in a highly-stylised collection of modular synth drums, live percussion, and processed classic analog drum machines.
DM-307's extensive content is complemented by an intuitive user interface featuring the all-new Grid. The Grid is an advanced 5 voice drum machine with 8 programmable patterns, allowing you to build grooves by simply clicking on a step.
Expand your beat creation by stacking 5 grid presets in a performance multi and gain unprecedented control over each part with individual FX, modulators and envelopes.
Load one of the 180+ Kit Groove presets or 300 Performance Multis to get a true sense of the power of the Grid, or create your own complex grooves from the thousands of sounds found in the Kits and Multis.
Master Your Beats
DM-307's interface was designed for quick and simple groove creation. You can easily create a beat, alter the envelope, and drastically affect the tone of the sounds.
Similar to Damage and AEON, there are 3 levels of effects provided in the instrument. Apply effects globally with the Master effects, tweak individual sounds with the ADSR, filter, EQ, and tune, or engage the signature Advanced Trigger FX to quickly modulate and alter the sound.
Tempo sync is automatic, and exporting a loop's MIDI data to your sequencer is simply drag-and-drop. Tweak your grooves quickly with the integrated keyswitches for effects and stutters, and create instant impacts with the unique 'Analog Hits'.
The sound of DM-307 comes from loops, kits, effects and multis, all powered by the Kontakt 5 Player Engine. All the loops and kits are designed for seamless layering and maximum flexibility, and are loosely classified into 5 different styles.
DM-307 provides a host of loop menus and single loop presets. Stocked with over 1200 loops in 5 contemporary styles, you can quickly mix and match kicks, snares, hits, and other elements to build complex layered rhythms and grooves.
The Loop Menus are intelligently mapped, and formatted into "breakout" presets, allowing you to perform the full loop in a single key, or mix and match the individual layers of different loops, all in one preset. Single Loop presets provide level, pan, and tuning for each slice, and allows you to recompose via midi drag-and-drop.
DM-307 offers more than 80 different kits, built from nearly 2,000 unqiue sounds. These kits combine organic drums with processed classic drum machines and aggressive modular synth sounds to create a one-of-a-kind paette of genre-defying percussion.
The signature 'Analog Hits' and ´Tempo Synced Risers' are perfect for adding impact and emotion to any track.
DM-307 offers 3 different levels of effects – apply effects globally with the Master FX (Reverb, Delay, Distortion, Modulation, Twist and Punish), Trigger Performance Effects, or tweak individual sounds.
The Advanced Trigger FX are switchable real-time effects with incredible scope for intuitive and creative sound tweaking. Control the speed at which the effect is engaged and disengaged, or turn on the sequence button, and modulate the effect changes with a 32-step sequencer.
The signature Punish and Twist knobs preside over everything, adding aggressive drive and character to your beats.
THE SOUND OF DM-307
For nearly a year, Heavyocity captured in-depth recordings of a wide array of percussion instruments. Sounds were recorded through an all analog signal chain with gear including API, Grace, and Neve mic pre's, and Manley EQs.
With instruments ranging from congas and bongos, to small metals and triangles, and an arsenal of drum kits, DM-307 provides a vast range of organic timbres at your fingertips.
Classic Analog Drums
DM-307 provides Heavyocity´s signature ´Music-meets-sound-design´ approach on the highly sought after sounds of classic analog drum machines.
Sounds were captured using pristine analog gear like the Neve, Wunder, and Chandler mic pres, and then processed with outboard hear from UA, Eventide, Dramastic Audio and Dangerous Audio. The results are punchy, crisp and dynamic, providing serious character to the sounds.
Modular Synth Drums
Aggressive, Fat and In Your Face, DM-307 contains the uncompromising sound of true analog percussion. All of these exceptional sounds stem from using complex synthesis techniques with unique custom modular synth rigs.
Using an array of modules including VCOs, Vactrol Filters, Vaccum Tube Compressors, Vaccum Tube Distortion and Analog bit Designers, all sound shaping took place completely within the analog synthesis realm, custom designing sounds from the ground up.

"The bottom line here is that DM307 contains a staggering amount of rhythmic potential. The sounds are fabulous and the Kontakt interface, while it takes a little while to fully explore, is an absolute joy to use and gives you masses of additional sound-shaping options. Put these things together and DM307 is an impressive package. As a source for modern electronic beats, there is a pretty endless set of possibilities here and, almost without exception, they sound brilliant." - Sound on Sound Click here to read the review in full
"...by far one of the best drum machines made for Kontakt and Kontakt player." - The Audio Spotlight
"...one of the biggest and most flexible percussion libraries you can get your hands on!" - Film and Game Composers
"Hands down, my new number one go-to for any drum/percussion sound. What really impresses me every time I open it is the meticulously designed interface. It makes everything quick and easy, but the power and control you have over the sounds is truly amazing. Having so much control inside the instrument itself is saving me time and processing power - two things we can always use more of!" - Jason Graves, Composer
"I'm loving the DM-307, it's got that signature Heavyocity attitude, rock solid timing and an incredible variety of ultra-tweakable sounds. The GUI is among the best I've ever used in a Kontakt instrument." - Tom Salta, Composer

"DM-307 more than meets the levels of excellence we've come to expect from Heavyocity, and may well prove to be the company's finest and most flexible library to date." - Music Tech
"Overall this is another stunning effort from one of our favourite Kontakt library developers." - Computer Music
"I can only say that DM-307 is frickin’ awesome! It’s the perfect companion to Damage as it has everything Damage didn’t fit in, while remaining consistent with the cutting edge Heavyocity sound. From classic electro sounds to funky grunge to great sound design effects DM-307 is a genuine modern drum & beat production workhorse. A total winner!" - askaudiomag.com
