Queen of Pentacles


Queen of Pentacles is a 7 voice hybrid drum kit

The new Queen of Pentacles covers the range of Dance/EDM/Techno musicstyles and is inspired by the famous TR-909. Endorphin.es did it in a smart way. Check out the features: There are 7 sounds in the drum kit. 3 drums are analogue – bass drum, snare drum and clap. These 3 are generated analoguefor the following reason: each sound has its own binary noise generator andreally – each time they are triggered the flavor is unique –they simply neverrepeat. At the same time they don’t phase out each other as in the original909, which is great – for example in the situation when reinforcing the clap on2 nd and 4 th with an additional beat of the snare. The other 4 drums are sample-based. Just .wav files playback directly from a microSD card with additional volume envelope, decay and pitch control. Those are simple modifiers but help you to shape the sounds played as one-shots.
