Drumvolution for Live is a deeply integrated, standalone Live Pack version of our award-winning Drumvolution Drum Machine. (no plugin or Kontakt required!)

Live Racks Evolved…

Drumvolution for Live is a custom built, deeply produced Live Pack (with Push integration), powered by a ground-breaking, unique library of 28,000+ electronic drums and sound design tools; delivered directly to your DAW inside a powerful Ableton Live environment with hands on control over powerful sound design Macros.

Drumvolution for Live’s focus is not emulation - It’s about creating new, visionary drum sounds. It’s drum programming evolved...

Forward-thinking sound library

The sound content that powers Drumvolution for Live was designed, layered and imagined from the ground up using a collection of impressive sources; sought-after modern / vintage analogue drum machines, powerful modular synths, world-class live rooms and acoustic instruments, sound design layering tools, transients, found sound, processed Foley, prepared percussion, re-amped drums, tape machines, intricately layered abstract sounds, and much more…

All captured by mastering-grade conversion via impressive analogue signal chains.

Drumvolution vs Revolution

Drumvolution for Live is a completely different beast to our previously released Revolution for Live product. Unlike Revolution, Drumvolution doesn’t emulate any drum machine/s - nor does it focus on vintage drum machine sounds. Drumvolution’s focus is solely towards forward-thinking, modern drum production.

To achieve this, we intricately designed and recorded thousands of sound sources (see sound sources above). We then took these source sounds and fine-tuned them further – intricately layering them together to create new, never been heard before sounds – along with passing them through lush analogue signal chains. These sounds form the backbone of Drumvolution for Live’s sound library.

Drumvolution shares no sounds with Revolution – the sound content is unique and different in both products.

Seamless integration

Drumvolution for Live integrates seamlessly with Ableton Live (Live 9, 10 and 11 are all supported), delivering endless inspiration and a compelling workflow to spark creativity. Easily automate, mangle or build complex grooves using Live’s sequencer or Push.

Not an Ableton Live user? No sweat! You’ll still have access to all the raw WAV samples from Drumvolution (28,000 of them) when purchasing this product. All of which have been carefully organized by drum type and character, perfectly trimmed by hand and ready to use with any DAW or sampler of your choice!

Adding Character…

Take things further with TRUE analogue tape machine saturation! All Drums in Drumvolution for Live have additionally been recorded to analogue tape at 3 saturation levels (via a Studer A800 tape machine). Drum Rack Macros (and Push) allow you to easily dial in your desired ‘Tape’ saturation level per drum sound. Choose between Clean (no tape), Tape 1 (subtle tape compression), Tape 2 (warm tape saturation) and Tape 3 (heavy tape saturation!).
