Instrument: NUSofting - Broken Drum Machine (BDM)

Broken Drum Machine (BDM) from NUSofting is a plugin instrument that simulates the unpredictable behaviour of an uncontrollable sound machine.

BDM offers four drum pads in the style of an old beat box. Each pad features tone, decay, pitch, pan and gain controls. On top of the standard controls comes the broken factor - each pad features its own sliders for chaos and chance. Chaos sets the amount of variations to the original sound, and chance is the probability algorithm for the chaos to occur.
By varying and automating the chaos and chance sliders, you can achieve a range of wild and unpredictable sounds, similar to creating glitches and bleeps by manipulating an analog circuit.

Price: EUR 30.90 / US$ 44.90 Until February 15th.


"To the fact that the broken sound is desirable. Yes! Knobs turn for satisfaction defective! Inspired by a combination of several old school beat boxes and the circuit-bending culture that revolves around cheap, and old, hardware musical instruments (such as the toy Casio and Yamaha keyboards of the 80s), Broken Drum Machine brings the lively, "ever changing", circuit-bent drum machine sounds to your DAW."
