Decomposing is a sound engineer’s dream! With it, you can load a sample and easily split it into tonal and audio components. Once you’ve done that, you can easily drag and drop each part onto the Groove Agent pads to layer your drums, creating endless possibilities. Just imagine combining the fat tone of an 808 kick drum with a 909 snare drum. Or an electronic snare drum with an acoustic hi-hat sound.
Create exciting new drum sounds by modifying the sample’s pitch envelope. This works especially well for EDM music, if you want to create drops and fills, or if you want to tweak the pitch of pre-recorded drums. Combined with the new Decompose function, you can also separately modulate the pitch and sound – a very unique approach to working with drum sounds.
