IK Multimedia MODO Drum Crossgrade - Retail Box

Acoustic drum modeling software with 10 kits and 1400 grooves - boxed retail version - crossgrade from any IK product $99.99 or more

Product Description

IK Multimedia MODO Drum is the first physically modeled drum virtual instrument, giving you most deeply customizable virtual drum kits ever. Like the award-winning MODO Bass software, MODO Drum delivers incredibly realistic and authentic tracks for your music, with a level of customization and detail you’ve never imagined. Create the drum tracks of your dreams with access to every parameter of every drum in your kit, from size to tension to wood to play style, and so much more.

MODO DRUM’s innovate modal synthesis technology shatters the limitations of traditional drum sample libraries, for a new standard in realistic, natural and customizable drum tracks.

MODO DRUM is so special because it takes into account every aspect of the drum playing experience. Far from just sampling drum hits, MODO DRUM physically models, calculates, and synthesizes in real time everything from the drum stick, drum materials, size, tension, sympathetic vibration, room acoustics, mic positioning… and puts all these decisions in your hands. It’s the dream solution for producers who want ultra-realistic drum tracks that will never get stale, and guaranteed to give you exactly the sound your track needs, every single time.

Real Time Sound Synthesis

Unlike traditional sample-based virtual instruments, MODO DRUM utilizes modal synthesis technology and an ultra-optimized sound engine to bring the individual drums, and the kit as a whole, to life.

Each drum’s acoustic behavior is determined by its physical parameters, as well by modeling the action of the player as a nonlinear physical interaction with different areas on the drum surface, the interaction of the drum head with the body, the sympathetic vibration of the drums with each other and the acoustic interaction with the room.

In short, MODO DRUM is creating sound in real time based on the ever-changing interactions between the player, drums, and room, mimicking the vibe of a real, live drummer. It’s never been easier to bring life to your drum tracks - and by extension your music overall. MODO DRUM is a full experience with a small memory footprint and a faster loading time thanks to the minimal sample storage needed.

How Does It Work?

MODO DRUM is a complete synthesis of drum playing, so it naturally flows from the performer to the drums themselves, to the room and then the recorded signal. Starting from sticks, beater and technique, to the final, mixed & processed signal, every element is yours to adjust as you see fit.

10 Drum Kits, Infinite Possibilities

MODO DRUM covers every genre and style out of the box. Enter the Show Room and choose one of the 10 drum kits to use as your starting point. From Black Oyster, to Extreme, Grungy, Plexi, and more.

Each kit has been chosen to represent a particular style, genre or time period, and to give you the widest range of possible timbres and tones.

MODO DRUM’s Room section lets you place your drums in an array of different environments, from a dry drum booth to IK’s own in-house recording studio, to clubs, cathedrals and more! MODO DRUM uses convolution to ensure each element of your kit interacts naturally with the space and with each other. Let it ring or add gates and compression on the room tone for even more creative drum sounds.

Fine Tuning Made Easy

The MIXER built into MODO Drum gives you total control over the recorded sound. Adjust levels and panning per element of your kit, mute and solo elements and even flip phase. Elements can be grouped in buses and each element has two sends to process multiple elements with the same FX for a more cohesive feel.

Speaking of FX, MODO Drum includes a massive suite of 19 studio processors and effects derived from T-RackS and AmpliTube, to sculpt the final flavor of the kit. Tracks, buses, FX returns, and even the master output each host an eight band parametric EQ plus four additional FX slots for endless sound shaping possibities.

Now get your groove on

Once you’ve dialed in your dream kit, perfected your performance, and mastered your drum mix, it’s time to start making music. Browse through MODO DRUM’s 1,400+ MIDI patterns to help kick start your creativity.

Here in the GROOVE section, we’ve included smart filters to help pinpoint the exact loops you’re looking for, classified by things like genre, length, and time signature. You’ll find MIDI patterns of every style and mood here, including variations to easily build song sections. These loops are handcrafted by the IK team or drawn from their best-selling sample libraries to be unmistakably unique, authentic, and inspiring. Trigger these from within MODO Drum or drag n’ drop into your DAW to explore the virtually endless possibilities.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
