Imagine having a hugely powerful, flexible and inspiring analogue drum synth in your studio: one that allows you to create classic tones from the past or sculpt entirely new contemporary sounds easily and seamlessly. Then imagine that it’s been wired in to a choice of classic, old-skool hardware samplers, so that you can record its output through their signature electronics, pushing their A-to-D converters just as far as you want, to get that meaty thud and crunch to the low end, and crackly sizzle to the high end that only vintage samplers can impart to a beat. Imagine doing away with their cryptic interfaces in favour of a single knob that allows you to dial in precisely how much of their character you want stamped on your sound.
This is what Grit Kit puts at the heart of your DAW. Inspired by the way that hardware samplers of the past just make beats sound better, Grit Kit is an analogue drum synthesiser’s brain surgically welded to a hardware sampler’s heart. It’s as easy to program and create with as any Vermona-style analogue drum synth, but can sound like an Akai, or a Mirage, or an EPS, just at the flick of a switch and the twist of a dial. It gives you an entire drum kit – kick, snare, open and closed hats, three toms, three cymbals, and two percussion pieces – all freely editable, and all ready to jump to life with the weight and power of yesterday’s sampler technology…
Grit Kit, is Rhythmic Robot’s amazing new drum synthesiser. Using analogue waveforms that run through three classic vintage hardware samplers, it adds instant old-skool vibe to your tracks.
Grit Kit ships with a pack of 16 preset kits covering everything from tight studio kits to total sonic mayhem.
