MV08 Update AUv3 and MORE!
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

The MV08 features over 200 16bit 44.1k wav files that have been faithfully sampled from one of the most important drum machines in history. (featuring 60 samples for the kick drum alone!). On top of the original voice controls we have added Pan, Pitch and two editable send effects per voice, along with a master 3 band EQ and Distortion.

A POWERFUL SEQUENCER

Keeping the classic XOX style sequencer from the original, we have added in some powerful updates bringing it into the 21st century: All of the voice controls can now be sequenced per step, giving you limitless freedom and possibilities to create evolving and innovative rhythms (not to mention killer bass lines!). Each pattern can be 1-64 steps long and played at either a 16 or 32 step resolution – giving you endless options to create complex time signatures and long evolving loops.

FUN WITH PATTERNS

There are 8 banks of 16 patterns giving you a total of 128 user patterns to play with, ensuring you don’t run out of space when inspiration strikes. We’ve created a separate demo bank to get you started featuring some classic rhythms from time gone by. You can even record the master output and export to your favourite DAW.

Revolutionize your groove-making and create sounds you’ve never heard before.

Don’t control just one or two effects—control pan, volume, tone, pitch, decay, compression, and distortion, delay, and reverb on every beat—not just per track.

Diode-108 is packed with a variety of built-in vintage, classic, and acoustic kits, but you can easily mix and match samples to make your own custom kits. Or import wav files for even more variety. Once you’ve built your groove, DIODE-108’s drag-and-drop effects make it fun and easy to create completely new beats.

* Wav sample import

* Mix and Match kits (easily substitute any sample in any kit). Want an 808 kick in a 909 kit? No problem.

Diode-108 iPad Drum Machine

SEQUENCER

Build your beat on a 16×16 pattern grid. 16 voices is almost twice the number of voices of some of our competitors, and it means that you can have an 808 kit with all the instruments you’re looking for (not just some of them). Set tempo and swing. Several time signatures are supported (and each pattern can have its own).



PADS

Tap your beat on our 4-by-4 array of drum pads. Record into the active pattern, or just play along.



DRUM MACHINE

Unprecedented control over your drum kit. Dial in the settings you want, mix and match samples from different kits, and save out your modified custom kits for use in any song. How much control do you have? An amazing 7 dials for each of the 16 drum voices!



FX

Diode-108’s crown jewel is its drag-and-drop beat FX. Want a reverse cowbell? Want a bitcrushed tom? Want a cymbal that performs a pitch dive across several beats? Just drag and drop the effect tokens onto beats, and drag them left and right to cover any beats you like. Turn a long-lasting cymbal into a rhythmic backbone.

SONG


Build up a collection of named patterns from scratch, or import selected patterns from existing songs. Then drag and drop the patterns to build up a song.

Export your songs as wav files via a variety of options.
