IK Multimedia released MODO Drum 1.5, a sizable update bringing three new kits to the physical modeling drum plugin. They are called Silver, Brit Custom, and Metal. Otherwise, no major new features seem to have been added. So it’s a straight-up content update we’re dealing with, and we’ll gladly take it!
IK Multimedia MODO Drum 1.5
At its core, MODO Drum 1.5 remains the same. Instead of a sample player, MODO is a synthesizer which uses physical modeling to generate acoustic drum sounds. This approach produces realistic sounds without hoarding gigabytes of storage.
Furthermore, the synthesis engine allows detailed parameter adjustments. You can define dimensions, material, surface, and resonance. The playing style can be modified, too, alongside the room in which the virtual kit is located. You can also roll your own kits from the individual instruments in the pre-assembled kits. The resulting drum sounds can be shaped with various effects. There’s also the Grooves Manager to let you choose between 1400 grooves in different styles.
After updating, the number of available kits has been increased to a total of 13. The three new additions go by the names of Silver, Brit Custom and Metal. Silver is meant to be an all-rounder, Brit Custom is suitable for pop and rock, and Metal caters to aggressive styles.
