Sound Yeti has released Method 1, a drum solution for Kontakt that is aimed at any producers creating modern music. The drum engine will allow you to sequence beats, add effects and create a coherent drum mix straight into your DAW.
Method 1 is pre-packed with 10,000 samples to choose from and over 225 drum presets to utilise. Its 500 loop templates will speed things up if you’re looking for quick inspiration and creativity. Otherwise, the eight-track step sequencer will let you create a pattern with ease, and accent control provides versatility across sounds for every step.
You can also trigger four different effects on specific steps for each of the sounds with tune, decay, reverb and delay. This means you can have a long reverb for your snare on step 16, but a short reverb on the same snare at step 32. Six global effects are available, including compression, tone, crush, mix, delay and reverb. Seven ‘per channel’ effects include accent, flam, pan, tune, filter, resonance, drive, stereo width and velocity.
DAW integration is designed to be easy and seamless with Method 1, featuring Tempo Sync and MIDI input. MIDI Learn will allow you to hook it up to external controllers, and MIDI drag and drop lets you move MIDI patterns into your DAW from Method 1. Copy & paste functions are available for sequences and lanes to speed up pattern editing.
Method 1 is available now for an introductory price of $129, and will cost $169 at RRP. Find out more at soundyeti.com
