Real-Time sound synthesis
Unlike traditional sample-based virtual instruments, MODO DRUM utilizes IK Multimedia award-winning modal synthesis technology and an ultra-optimized sound engine to bring drums to life. Each drum’s acoustic behavior is decided by its physical parameters: dimensions, materials, skin, and more, also by the playing style, the interaction of the drum head with the body, the effect of sympathetic vibrations and therefore the acoustic interaction with the space . MODO DRUM creates authentic sound in real time, recreating those ever-changing interactions between the player, drums, and room on the fly.

From jazz to grunge kits and maple shells to exotic bubinga, each kit has been chosen to represent a specific style, genre or period of time , for the widest possible range of timbres and tones. Three complete cymbal sets are included, also as tambourine, cowbell and claps for general MIDI compatibility.

The Customize section allows users to feature , remove, swap and rearrange drums from starter kits. for every drum within the kit, users can then adjust a good selection of elements on the fly, including the skins, tuning, damping, diameter, height and therefore the shell profile of the drum itself.
For snare drums, the sort and tension of the snare are often adjusted, and for both kick and snare, users can even adjust the oscillation of nearby drums. Cymbals are often tuned up and down, and damping are often adjusted to exactly shape their sound and performance.
Any element are often saved as a private preset; entire kits also can be saved for future use.

Users can adjust the situation and accuracy of every drum hit to shape the sound and provides their grooves a more precise or more relaxed feel, and choose between a variety of cymbal articulations. The kick drum are often customized to point a heel up or down technique and to pick the sort of beaters (felt, plastic or wood). a variety of stick types is additionally available for every hand.

MODO DRUM uses convolution to make sure each element of a kit interacts naturally with the space and with one another .

Fine-tuning made easy
The built-in mixer provides total control over the recorded sound. Users can adjust levels and panning per element also as mute, solo, and flip phase. Elements are often grouped in buses, and every element has two sends to process multiple elements with an equivalent global FX, for a more cohesive feel.
