A0 DK1 is a powerful and inexpensive professional drum machine for PC/VST.

DK1 is fully compatible with Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT4 and Windows 2000, Logic Audio and Cubase VST. It requires a PC with a Pentium II processor or better, and 64Mb of RAM.

 

A0 DK1 features 24 drum pads, four mute groups (also known as exclusion groups), cross velocity layers and much more...

It loads wave files "on the fly", and requires no external editor. No matter if you are working with high sample rates (88 or 96kHz): DK1 will resample automatically the sound samples!

DK1 offers 3 stereo output bus, and each bus features an analog-sounding hard-knee compressor.

 

Unlike other VSTi drum machines, DK1 offers a smart polyphony engine, so you can decide which sounds are important and which can be truncated when DK1 runs "out of voices". Using the preferences panel you can set the polyphony of DK1 up to 127 voices!

 

Thanks to the cross velocity feature and the capability of loading 24 bit and 32 bit floating point wave files, DK1 is the tool of choice for quality productions.

 

A0 DK1 uses very little CPU time while providing the best sound quality, thanks to the (VST standard) external 32 bit sound bus and performing internally all the calculations at a resolution of 64 bit.

DK1 FEATURES:

    Superior sound quality, thanks to the 64 bit internal mixer
    Three analog-sounding compressors on-board
    Three separate stereo outputs
    Almost every parameter can be controlled via MIDI
    Pitch-bend support
    Note on/off support
    MIDI velocity re-mapper to match the Master Keyboard touch. It can also be used to make the drum machine insensible to velocity
    Cross-velocity support
    Gentle low pass filter sensible to MIDI velocity
    32 voices of polyphony, with smart polyphony handling.
    Panning 100% mono compatible
    Built-in audio meters
    Low CPU usage
    Sample precise synchronization
    Can export and import drum banks, making possible to share banks between different computers or over the Internet.
    Can import LM-4 drum banks (with some limitations).
    Supports 8, 16, 20 and 24 bit and 32 bit floating point wave files.
    User friendly editor

   DK1 APPLICATIONS:

    Home studios, as a powerful and flexible drum machine
    Dance music. DK1 Stereo can trigger any kind of sample, and samples can be easily tuned and filtered via MIDI messages
    Small studios, DK1 as an excellent second drum machine, for percussive sounds
    DK1 Stereo is ideal for studio applications, when quality and sample accurate synchronization are the most important factors.
