Rounik Sethi on Mon, June 27th 0 comments
PunchBOX from D16 is designed to help you craft your ideal kick drum sounds using analog modelling synthesis and plenty of processing. Here's more info and audio demos.

PunchBOX is a virtual instrument designed for creating high-quality kick drum sounds. 

The heart of the plug-in is comprised of four sound generators, each of them standing for a key component of the final kick sound; 

  • Click - Sample-based, produces Kick accent 
  • Tops - Sample-based, produces e.g. hihats, percussion and noise 
  • Tools - Sample-based, produces almost full Kicks without sub 

Kick - Sample-based or Synth-based, produces the Kick's body. The generator working as
synthesizer offers four Bass Drum generating algorithms to select from; D16 emulations of classic drum machines; 606, 808, 909 and one additional, customly designed, Sine-based percussive synthesis.

Further sound processing enables built-in FX rack equipped with 5 different algorithms working in series. The effects are re-orderable via simple drag'n'drop action and whole fx chain is fed by generators independently (with different amount set per generator).
