AraldFX - DKS Pro (Pc/Mac/universal)

araldfx dks
DKS pro is a professional drum machine that's emulates classic analog drum machines.

DKS is born after three years of studying the classic analogue drum machines, which were able to produce convincing drums sounds with simple electronic means.

By joining the "classical" oscillator-based electronics drum synthesis approach with simple FM synthesis, physical modeling of the drum shell, a powerful set of effects, and a beautiful user interface DKS is an unique, easy to use, and incredibly versatile drums synthesizer.

This synthesizer can accurately emulate many of the classic electronic drums machine sounds, but through its extra FM and physical drum shell modeling features can go much further, even giving an interesting acoustic touch to synthesized sounds.

The Randomizer

Running out of creativity?
The built-in intelligent randomizers can give new life to your drums tracks. You can generate totally new sounds with a mouse click and hear them while your song is playing!

A nice tutorial on how to use the randomization DKS functions is available here
