VENGEANCE PRODUCER SUITE METRUM KICK SYNTHESIZER DOWNLOAD
More options are found in the MIDI and System pages; for example, you can determine which layers respond to MIDI note great for pitched jumpstyle kicks and length, disable the master limiter, and decide what’s affected by the excellent randomiser. If creating a kick from scratch, you still need the know-how to be able to tell when it’s punching in the right places and not an overblown mess. The only effect we’re missing is one to narrow the stereo field, rather than just ‘mono-ise’ sounds. At the global level, there’s a master amplitude envelope applied to all layers, and a modulation envelope. Pros Pro-quality, floor-shaking kicks! In the meantime, you can use host automation or set up alternative CC control in the matrix. We’d suggest an option to show an analyser instead of the somewhat redundant virtual keyboard.

Take a listen to some Metrum presets. Like the other layers, its controls are visible at all times. Finally, there’s a pitch control.
While you can create stomping kicks without ever going near Metrum’s impressive modulation matrix, it’s there for those seeking ultimate control. At the global level, there’s a master amplitude envelope applied to all layers, and a modulation envelope.
The timing is rock solid, too – as tight as placing samples snthesizer an audio track, at least in our test DAWs Live and Cubase.
The sample slots also have pitch and amp envelopes, but their basic controls are different: There’s an amplitude envelope, too. No progressive stereo narrowing effect. No undo and minor bugs in v1. Accidentally hit the Randomize! Metrum’s smart Librarian is simplicity itself: More options are found in the MIDI and System pages; for example, you can vengance which layers respond to MIDI note great for pitched jumpstyle kicks and length, disable the master limiter, and decide what’s affected by the excellent randomiser.

This effect makes it a doddle to achieve sidechain pumping – synthesjzer very common dance music production technique. Likewise, Metrum aims to produced light work of the most fundamental – and often most important – element of any dance track: The latter is tempo sync’ed so that it’s always heard on the offbeat, and it resets when a new note is played, so the reverb never obfuscates the kick itself – also neat! The only effect we’re missing is one to narrow the stereo field, rather than just ‘mono-ise’ sounds.
To sum up, although it’s arguably not a vital purchase, the degree of effort and expertise that’s gone into making Metrum has clearly paid off. The basics are mute and solo buttons, a volume dial and pitch control.
We cobbled together something like this in Ableton Live mrtrum Groups, and while it worked and sounded passable, we have to admit that it wasn’t half as quick and easy as Metrum and the results weren’t as good. Our Verdict It’s a specialist tool and not for everyone, but Metrum’s convenience and quality of sound will delight those who take to it.
Let’s look first at the synth oscillator. The rest of the effects can be selectively applied to layers with toggle buttons, so you can easily exclude, say, the oscillator layer from the Distortion section – neat. Spectrum analyser not always visible.
Vengeance Producer Suite: Metrum Kick Synthesizer reaches version 1.2.2
You’ll also have to resist the urge to continually tinker with your kick! All presets respond to the mod wheel, and there are three GUI Modifier macro knobs that provide additional sound-shaping options – eg, to dial in extra reverb, reduce the sample rate, fade in a ride cymbal sample, etc.
These can be auditioned just like full presets and dragged onto klck sample slot. There are genre-categorised presets, and they’re just as powerful and production-ready as those in Vengeance-Sound’s sample libraries. It’s a specialist tool and not for everyone, but Metrum’s convenience and quality of sound will delight those who take to it.
In the meantime, you can use host automation or set up alternative CC control in the matrix. The most basic is a two-band EQ on the entire output. Metrum delivers the goods for any form of electronic music, be it house all flavourshardcore, RnB, hip-hop, DnB, hardstyle, etc. synthexizer
Cons Pointless virtual keyboard. There are ten slots, and you can disable each with a power switch. The Shape knob takes the oscillator from a sine wave up to a near-triangle shape, while Drive applies distortion and Spike accentuates attack.
There’s also a dedicated modulation envelope that can be used as a source, and the amplitude envelope of any layer may producee function as such.
