IK Multimedia release UNO Drum

UNO Drum is the ultimate beat creation station for anyone and everyone to create warm, punchy, high-quality and inspiring grooves. Made in collaboration with Italian analog specialist Soundmachines, UNO Drum follows the acclaimed UNO Synth, combining massive analog tone with digital flexibility and convenience. It easy to program and perform using the widest sonic palette to add professional drum grooves to your music.

UNO Drum offers 6 true analog drum sounds for the warmest, richest, and most dynamic drum sounds possible. This includes 2 different kick drums, snares, claps, and hi-hats – the core kit that characterizes the most iconic analog drum sounds of all time.

Plus, added PCM elements (with 54 samples to choose from) are available for additional sonic flavours. Toms, rims, cowbells, rides, and crash cymbals help you create complex, unique, and full rhythm tracks. UNO Drum lets you use up to 12 elements in total between analog and digital sounds (11 voice polyphony).

UNO Drum also offers 3 master effects: analog drive and compressor and a stutter effect. Turn up the drive to make your grooves hit harder with an aggressive edge. Add compression to make your tracks tighter, glueing together your rhythm with fat and heavy punch. Like what you hear? Good. Your settings will save right with your kit for instant recall. Stutter offers adjustable depth, from subtle tremolos to full-on slices, to create different feeling sounds and grooves.

UNO Drum lets you freely swap analog and digital elements, so you never have to feel limited by pre-set combinations. Between the analog engine designed by SoundMachines and samples drawn from IK’s award-winning SampleTank sound & groove workstation, the diverse collection of sounds encourages fresh ideas and unique creation.
