|The AudioSauna's synths are also drum machines.|
We just made another update to the factory sounds of AudioSauna. While the previous update was about capturing the very essence of FM synthesis, now we created a bank of percussive sounds for the virtual analog synth. The sounds are located at the bottom of the synth's presets.
Why use synthesized drum sounds?
AudioSauna's drum synth utilises emulated analog oscillators rather than pre-recorded samples to create its drum sounds. A pre-recorded sample is static and constant, unlike the synthesized drum sound which is usually based on randomized noise. Each time the sound is played from the synth, the sound has a different and unique waveform. This sounds more pleasant to the human ear.
Using drum synth gives also greater control of the sound, since the spectral content and envelope of the sound can be programmed.
Here is an example song using only the synthesized drum sounds of AudioSauna. The song uses 5 synths to generate the sounds. If you want to see how this was made you can download the AudioSauna's .song file from here.
