The Drumaxx percussion modelling instrument gives you total control over 16 physically modeled drum pads that can be routed to independent outputs for external effects processing. Drumaxx is not based on samples or even commonly used 'synthesis' techniques where oscillators are mixed and the result is always 'electronic'. Drumaxx uses modelling algorithms to create bass drums hi-hats snares realistic and electronic sounds too. But what about the traditional 'Achilles' heel' of synthesis cymbals? Drumaxx creates cymbals and metallic percussion also. At the core of Drumaxx is a model where the vibrating membrane is represented as a mesh of interconnected points. Each point is given physical properties including mass inertia stiffness damping and all that good physics stuff. For the musician this means Drumaxx gives you control over multiple parameters such as material thickness tension and shape. More importantly the parameters can be modulated in real-time as a function of velocity or external controls. The drum body is also under user control too including body material size vibration damping and shape. All this gives you multi-dimensional performance options a Matrix of variables providing nearly infinite possibilities.
