UNO Drum is the ultimate beat creation station for anyone and everyone to create warm, punchy, high-quality, and inspiring grooves. Made in collaboration with Italian analogue specialist Soundmachines, UNO Drum follows the acclaimed UNO Synth, combining massive analogue tone with digital flexibility and convenience.
UNO Drum makes it easy to program and perform using the widest sonic palette to add professional drum grooves to your music.
12 killer sounding drum elements:
UNO Drum offers 6 true analogue drum sounds for the warmest, richest, and most dynamic drum sounds possible. This includes 2 different kick drums, snares, claps, and hi-hats - the core kit that characterizes the most iconic analogue drum sounds of all time.
Plus, added PCM elements (with 54 samples to choose from) are available for additional sonic flavours. Toms, rims, cowbells, rides, and crash cymbals help you create complex, unique, and full rhythm tracks. UNO Drum lets you use up to 12 elements in total between analogue and digital sounds (11 voice polyphony).
All of the above can be stored and recalled on the fly with 100 drum kit presets, all pre-programmed and fully editable at your leisure. It's a breeze to find an IK inspired kit that catches your ear and tweak to fit your taste, or create your custom kits from scratch. Make something you like and save and store for later use - UNO Drum is ready to recall your beats whenever you are.
UNO Drum also offers 3 master effects: analogue drive and compressor and a stutter effect. Turn up the drive to make your grooves hit harder with an aggressive edge. Add compression to make your tracks tighter, gluing together your rhythm with a fat and heavy punch. Like what you hear? Good. Your settings will save right with your kit for instant recall. Stutter offers adjustable depth, from subtle tremolos to full-on slices, to create different feeling sounds and grooves.
Wider sonic palette:
UNO Drum lets you freely swap analogue and digital elements, so you never have to feel limited by pre-set combinations. Between the analogue engine designed by SoundMachines and samples drawn from IK's award-winning SampleTank sound & groove workstation, the diverse collection of sounds encourages fresh ideas and unique creation.
Producers, beat-makers, creators, and DJs alike can always count on UNO Drum to find their groove. With the help of UNO's sound editing controls, options are always available for the key parameters of each sound element. Tweak the Tuning of your kicks for sub-rattling hip-hop, adjust Snap for punchy EDM drums, push the Decay for thundering industrial sounds, and so much more. UNO Drum's in - depth control encourages experimentation to take your drum tracks far beyond the usual.
Easy to use and perform:
12 touch-sensitive pads line the centre of UNO Drum, offering two velocity zones for more expressive live playing and easier programming. These can be used to play entire beats live with a pad-style feel, or to easily add your own live flare on top of pre-programmed rhythms.
Fully programmable to suit your style:
Whether you prefer 808s or MPCs, UNO Drum makes it easy to program the way you want.
The step sequencer lines the bottom of UNO Drum, showing 16 steps and 4 pages. Tap a step and hit a pad to add a hit to that selected step, or use the Record button play within a pattern. The sequencer also allows you to automate up to 8 parameters per step, for radically different sounds on each beat.
Integrates in any Live, Studio, or Mobile Set-up:
Use UNO Drum at home, in the lab, in DJ booth, and beyond. UNO offers USB and traditional MIDI via 2.5mm jacks (cables included) to integrate with both your Mac/PC and iOS device or traditional outboard MIDI gear, so no matter your rig UNO Drum will pair perfectly.
