Greynote Mu­sic Ana­log Kick Gen­er­a­tor €4

Future Music - - ROUNDUP -

With only two con­trols on­board, you won’t be sur­prised to know that a lot of de­ci­sion-mak­ing with AKG lies in the MIDI notes you feed it. This is a ROM­pler with round-robin sup­port, and a brief so­journ down the key­board – 125 notes from E8 right

down to C-2 – takes you on a whis­tle-stop tour of some of elec­tronic mu­sic’s great­est kick sounds. There are five of each, to be ex­act, at slightly dif­fer­ent tun­ings, mak­ing 25 kick types in to­tal.

Those on­board con­trols, by the way, are a sim­ple Gain pa­ram­e­ter, and a Re­verb, which is only re­ally change­able over the first third of its range. At 4 eu­ros (although it of­ten seems to get discounted to 2), this is a good al­ter­na­tive to samples if the kicks are up your street… and there’s only re­ally one way to find that out. VERDICT 7.5
