Description: Creating drums through a mixture of samples and synthesis. Steinberg Backbone will create unique drum sounds through resynthesis.
Steinberg has released a drum kit, the Steinberg Backbone. According to the developers, the new plugin promises to simplify the process of creating unique drum multilayer sounds thanks to samples and resynthesis.
Working with drum sound begins with importing a sample. After downloading the file, the user can perform a spectral resynthesis of the original signal to create a new sound. Backbone supports up to eight samples per sound, resulting in unusual and unique signals. Each layer can be processed in the effects and filters section.
With the decomposition tool, users can combine individual parts of samples, independently manage the attack and other parameters of each layer. Steinberg notes that Backbone does not limit the user in processing: you can configure filtering, height, time of signal decline, as well as features of its amplification. At the end of the signal travel chain are two stacks of effects for the final processing of the sample.
Steinberg Backbone offers a single-window interface – all controls are assembled in a single window, which simplifies the work. As one of the creators of the product Florian Haak says, the main task that the developers set for Backbone was the ease of creation and manipulation of sound. It was this approach that led to the possibility of creating your own sounds based on the combination of samples and synthesis. Audio content
