Create odd time signatures

In version 2 the grid layout has been redesigned to allow for different time signatures even within the same pattern. DrumThrash has a wide division range allowing you to create practically any type of time signature or rhythm. The grid has also been updated to give a more accurate visual representation. Below is a video of single pattern programmed using multiple time signatures.

Random hit velocities

Set velocity ranges and let the software will automatically pick a random velocity for each new hit. This will give you a good start at adding some variation to your tracks.

Full velocity control

You have complete control over velocity levels allowing you to fine-tune/articulate hits. Change the velocity level for individual instruments or any hit. Other advanced options include applying velocity changes to hits that fall on or off certain divisions, setting velocities relative to other hits, and velocity randomization.

Full pan control

Change the space with adjustable panning that can be applied to any instrument or hit.

Humanize patterns

Make beats sound less like a machine. You can humanize instruments, sections or entire patterns.
For tips on making realistic sounding drum tracks see How to quantize and humanize drums in DrumThrash.

Sample blender

The sample blender tool was added to help shape the sound of your snare drum. It works by layering multiple samples, allowing you to create a much fuller sounding snare. Here is a example of the Sample blender in action that demonstrates what a difference it can make.

New tuplet feature

A new option has been added that allows you to divide the grid into tuplets. For a brief explanation of a tuplet see the Creating tuplets section from the guide.

VST host compatible

Add effects to your tracks. DrumThrash supports VST plugins up to the 2.4 implementation.

Master VU meter display

Know how your drums are going to sit in the final mix. Monitor your tracks with a real-time VU meter that displays accurate playback levels.

Automatic instrument choking

Use the automatic choke to close instruments. You can easily assign a hi-hat pedal to automatically close off an open hi-hat. Below is an example of before and after choking has been applied to hi-hats.

Add patterns to a song list

Customize your drum kits

Build kits to suit your style of music. Import your own audio files or use the sample pack that comes included with the software. Creating Drum kits is a simple process and only takes a few steps.

Swap samples on the fly

Changing only a snare, ride, or kick drum can drastically change the way a beat feels. DrumThrash makes it simple to change instruments in your kit even during live playback.

Set any grid division

Divide the grid any way that you want. Easily construct complex polyrhythms. Select from one whole note all the way up to a 1/256th note.

Adjustable hit length

Swing time beats

Change straight beats to swing time with an adjustable swing percentage. See How to make a swing beat for some examples using different percentages.
