Texture Beats contain 64 kits of contemporary electronic drum sounds and analogue textures. Each kit features a unique "Texture Blend" control, making it effortless to blend FX-style textures to manipulate and customise each drum sound.
Texture Beats is split into 2 groups; "Electrik" and "Simplex". Both categories have been carefully matched and grouped to provide drum kits with similar characteristics.
All sounds have been created using modern and vintage analogue equipment.
In total there are 32 "Electronik" Kits (16 mono / 16 stereo) and 32 "Simplex" Kits (16 mono / 16 stereo).
There are 8 original drum kits within this total. These 8 kits have 4 alternatives that each have a unique texture ready to be mixed into the original sounds.
Every kit has been designed to maximise the creativity of the Drum Rack format within Ableton. The trademark of each kit is the ability to mix and blend analogue textures using the available Macros.
Each drum sound creatively responds to velocity. The sounds can dramatically change between a low velocity setting and the maximum velocity value (127). The drum sounds also vary according to the sustain length. In practise, this means the longer a note is held down (a key on a keyboard or a pad on an MPC controller) the more the sound develops. By varying the midi note lengths in a clip the drum sounds will evolve and change accordingly.
In order to make Hi-Hat programming easier, each kit has a 'round robin' sample management system to help humanise the groove. Every Hi-Hat in each kit rotates between 10 slightly different samples, adding to the analogue feel of Texture Beats.
