Soniccouture Konkrete 3

In the Eurorack Modular world I was introduced to the 4ms Rotating Clock Divider. This module takes a pattern and then starts moving or “rotating” or shifting it around. In this months issue of Sound on Sound (July 2013) there is a review of Soniccouture’s Konkrete 3. It’s a drum sample library created with things like a Buchla or Telemark paired with a sequencer and glitch effects. We have seen other software like this but Konkrete has a really cool feature called The Beat Shifter. The Beat Shifter is similar in idea to the 4ms RCD but with more control. Check out the video above to see it in action. I also included a video of the glitch parameter which is also nice. $129 USD.

“A powerful sample-based drum synth for all kinds of electronic music. A creative beat generator – The Beat Shifter. An incredible sonic arsenal – 90 kits | over 5000 sounds. Huge sonic range – acoustic recordings to analogue hits. A massive range of custom convolution effects. Real time glitch module” – soniccouture.com
