ChannelRobot Snare Factory 2
Snare Drum Virtual Instrument
Snare is probably the most distinctive of drum sounds – so you'll want these to be yours and yours alone. Snare Factory, like all the other Factory 2 products is designed to give you unique and usable drum sounds easily and quickly, and to offer you a range of options to tweak and sculpt your drum sound to be exactly the sound you want. Or use the intelligent randomization system to generate hundreds or thousands of options and save all the ones you like. It’s about variety, capability, and workflow.
Snare Factory 2 is a sample-based instrument – it uses three layers – in each layer, you can select any of the 1,040 meticulously sampled different snare drums (way more than any other Snare Drum module we know of), so the combinations of sounds is huge.
We've sampled a wide range of analog drum kits, iconic drum machines, and some obscure drum machines too. Each layer then has a range of modules to affect the sound, a multi-mode filter, an FM processor, a wave-shaper, reverb, delay, and a compressor. Finally, in the sound-shaping area, there is a set of modulators for velocity, pitch, and filter frequency. All this gives you complete flexibility in getting the sound you are looking for.
There's an intelligent randomization system for the whole instrument – and another for each voice. So getting to new, interesting and useful sounds is enjoyable and really quick.
Every drum sound you use in Snare Factory 2 comes in three different snapshots – a powerful facility that gives you three different snare sounds available at the same time. Snapshots are like parameter locks on steroids, you can have two snapshots that vary by just one effect parameter, say filter frequency, or that vary every single parameter – so snapshots can go from subtly different sounds to wildly different sounds – your choice. Like the randomization system, there's a snapshot generator function to quickly and easily generate snapshot variations.
Finally, there's a master volume control and our Infinite Round Robin Engine (IRRE) which modifies the sound on every incoming note, you're not stuck with 5, 10, or even 20 round robins - this system produces millions of subtly different sounds – slightly changed for every note played. How different each hit sounds is up to you.
So stand out from the crowd. Get rid of the frustration searching for drum sounds then layering and tweaking to get anywhere near what you are after – in your hands Snare Factory 2 will produce the sounds you need and that are like no others.
