This virtual instrument gives total control of 16 physically modeled drums. Each drum can be routed to independent output for external effects processing. Drumaxx includes 130 drum kits, 900 drum patches, 200 drum patterns, and not a single sample in sight.
Drumaxx is not based on samples or even commonly used "synthesis" techniques, where oscillators are mixed and the result is "electronic." Drumaxx can model bass drums, snares, realistic and electronic sounds. In addition, Drumaxx also models hi-hats, cymbals and metallic ethnic percussion instruments.
Drumaxx is available for Windows and Mac and can be used as a stand-alone program or as an FL Studio plug-in.
Image Line Software is offering Drumaxx by the “Pay what you think it's worth" pricing system, allowing customers to pay only what they think is a fair price for the product. The minimum (to cover the transaction fees and handling fees) has been set at 9 EUR, but after that it''s entirely up to customers what they are ready to pay based on their experience with the demo version and their willingness to support future development. For each Drumaxx sold during the Pay what you think it's worth period, Image Line will donate $1 to charity in support of the Haitian people affected by the devastating January 2010 earthquake.
The demo can be downloaded from Image Line Software Download Section and can be unlocked to full functionality by buying and registering through the Image Line shop.
