Design your own drum sound with Ultrakick from Isotonik Studios.

Isotonik Studios has a cool Plugin dedicated to create drum sounds. Ultrakick provides a drum synth plugin running in MAX. It is made out of 2 oscillators and a noise generator. These are controlled by 8 ultra flexible enveloppes + overdrive and filters.

I’m in the process of finishing a song that lacks kick. It was natural to dig into the new UltraKick to create the sounds I needed for my track.

Follow me as I go through the features of UltraKick.

 

The audio Flow

Ultrakick is a very potent drum synth with enought control to create not just kick but any sound for a drum kit.

In this video I show you around Ultrakick and how I created my sounds and easily exported them to .wav files.
